April Glitter Box Swatch and Review

Greetings and Nailutations,

Today I'm reviewing The Glitter Box from April.  The Glitter Box is a monthly box with exclusive polishes from The Juice Box Lacquer, Kawaii Lacquer, Fat Lacquers and a guest indie.  April's box was a little different in that Fat Lacquers was out on maternity leave, so it only contained 3 polishes, but at a discounted price.  I jumped on that - because I am a thrifty shopper.

Let's get to some swatches!

First up is a polish from Kawaii Lacquers called Cloudy With A Chance Of Nimbus.  It is a very sheer blue-purple holo glitter polish.  I opted to use it as a topcoat over black and white.  Other photos with no undie needed roughly 3 coats to get complete opacity.  Photos show 2 coats over white/black with a shiny topcoat.

Next is Flower Child from Lavish Polish.  Flower Child is a lavender glitter crelly containing circles and hexes in a multitude of colors.  Loved this one!  Photos show 2 coats with shiny topcoat.

Lastly is Candy On A Cloudy Day from The Juice Box Lacquer.  It is a grey jelly with neon yellow, pink and black small and medium hexes and large neon pink, green, yellow and blue hexes and black circles and rectangles.  I loved the concept of this polish, but it required a lot of glitter fishing with a bamboo stick as all the larger glitters were stuck at the bottom (even after being left upside down for an entire day).  I show it below with 2 coats and both shiny and matte topcoat.

Loves: I loved that this box had very original, different and fun polish.  The price is also reduced on pre-ordering as well, which is nice.

Wishes: I wish I would have remembered previous months glitter boxes - some of the months looked very appealing.

If you would like to check out The Glitter Box head to the store (here) or their instagram (@theglitterboxpolish) to hear when new boxes are released.

Happy Polishing,
