April 2015 A Box, Indied Swatch and Review

Greetings and Nailutations,

Today I have the April exclusive polishes from Llarowe's A Box, Indied.  As previously mentioned, Llarowe in an online indie stockist which has a monthly subscription box.  The box's theme was "April Fools" and took inspiration from practical jokes, silly memes and that dang blue and black dress....or was it gold?  The box is currently available for single month purchase.

Now let's get to some swatches.

First up is Blue Your Mind from Black Cat Lacquer.  This blue glitter jelly is a bright royal blue and contains blue and iridescent hex glitter.  Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat (1st and 2nd photos) and matte top coat (3rd photo).

Next is Made You Look from Serum N5.  Made You Look is a pearlescent polish that contains turquoise rainbow dust that shimmers in the light.  It took 3 coats for total opacity, as it is quite sheer.  Photos show the 3 coats and shiny top coat.

Whoopee Cushion from Crows Toes is one of my favorite in the box.  It is a a dusty pinky-orange resembling a Whoopee Cushion and dries to an almost matte-waxy look.  Photos show 2 coats with no top coat (1st photo) and shiny top coat (2nd and 3rd photos).

Hare Polish's contribution to the box is called Trust No One. Suspect Everyone.  It is a lime green glitter crelly that contains yellow and green matte hex and circle glitters as well as some teeny iridescent blue glitters.  Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat (1st photo) and matte top coat (2nd and 3rd photos).

The last polish and another favorite is from Pahlish and called Quite Ribbiting.  Quite Ribbiting is a deep teal linear holographic polish.  It's absolutely stunning!  Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat.

Shiny Top Coat: Gem Glam Top Coat from
Matte Top Coat: Polish Matte'rs from

Loves:  Formula on all 5 were great!  I really love Whoopee Cushion and Quite Ribbiting - I am a sucker for holos and interesting finishes!  I enjoyed that each polish had a different finish as well.  And as mentioned at the beginning, if you liked this box, there are still boxes available from Llarowe.

Wishes:  This was a fun box!  I wouldn't change anything.

Which is your favorite?

Happy Polishing,
Kristi aka @BeginNails
