May Monthly Awareness Box Swatch and Review

Greetings and Nailutations,

*Blogger Discount*
Today I'm going to share the Monthly Awareness Box for May, which 10% of sales go to Love Without Boundaries.  Love Without Boundaries is an "international charity that provides hope and healing to orphaned and vulnerable children, and their underserved communities, through its education, nutrition, medical and foster care programs."  As a reminder, all 6 polishes are available for the next 2 weeks - you can also purchase all 6, your favorite 4 or just 1 (but purchasing all 6 is the best deal).

Let's get to the swatches!  *Picture Heavy Post*
Photos taken in filtered light box and LED light.

First up is the contribution from Zombie Claw called You Are Loved.  You Are Loved is a peach creme with gold micro flecks as well as iridescent flakies.  Need a work appropriate polish shade - here is a great option!  Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat.

Here is You Are Loved with matte top coat.

Anchor and Heart Lacquer created Our Hearts Match for the box.  Our Hearts Match is a soft sky blue crelly with blue shimmer, holographic micro flakies, sapphire blue holographic micro glitter, silver micro glitter and a soft blue hex glitters.  Photos show 2 coats with glossy top coat.

I love Our Hearts Match best with matte top coat.

Sassy Pants Polish satisfied my purple loving heart with Love To Give.  Love To Give is a purple color shifting shimmer that shift purple, violet, blue, rose and red.  This one is a stunner and photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat.

It's just as amazing mattified too!

The contribution from Lyn B Designs is Aspire To Help, which is a medium toned teal base with red to blue to violet shifting shimmer, iridescent glitter that changes color and scattered holographic sparkle.  In some angles those color changing iridescent glitters made my jaw drop!  Photos show 2 coats topped with a glossy top coat.

Here is Aspire to Help mattified.

Next is Pretty Beautiful Unlimited's contribution called Family By Choice.  Looking for a fun summer neon?  Look no further!  Family by Choice is a hot neon pink crelly with aurora pigment, micro holographic flakies and glitters with illusion flakies.  Photos show it topped with glossy top coat.

Family By Choice with matte top coat.

The last polish of the box is from Bees Knees called More Than Blood.  More Than Blood is a forest green polish full of pink and gold aurora shimmer as well as scattered holo.  Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat.

More Than Blood with matte top coat reminds me of a garden.

Shiny Top Coat: Glisten and Glow Top Coat
Matte Top Coat: Heather's Hues Heart Of the Matter

Lastly, I will leave you with nail art macros!  <3

Loves: I love the Monthly Awareness Box - a box that gives back always gets a thumbs up in my book.  I love that there are different finishes and colors in the box so that there is always a polish for everyone.  If I had to pick a favorite...ugh, I love mattified crellies....I love a hot pink....and purples are always my love.

Wishes: I wish that this box does amazingly well!  I hope one or more of these polishes catch your eye, tickle your fancy!
