The Color Box: Purple ALL The Things

March 28, 2016

A while back, I had a dream about creating a color box. Who else dreams about polish?! I never thought it would come to fruition, but here we are, a color box! I made a post on FB in For the LOVE of indies asking if makers had any interest in creating such a box, Jen & Amanda helped to tag makers and it evolved into a Blogger driven subscription box. Bloggers work together with an indie maker to create a custom nail polish for the color theme of the box period. The first color we chose is PURPLE! Check em out!

Blogger/Maker: Manna's Manis / Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer
Description: A light lilac crelly packed with blue/purple iridescent and silver holo microglitter.
Application & Formula: Formula was a tad bit goopier than I'd prefer. Julie said she would add more thinner, so no worries for y'all!
Opacity: 2 coats. May need 3 if you apply coats thin.
Dry time: 10 minutes
Blogger/Maker: Amanda Loves Polish / Turtle Tootsie Polishes
Description: Pastel Purple holo with different size magenta, blue and pink flakies.
Application & Formula: Fantastic formula and easy application.
Opacity: 2 coats
Dry time: 10 minutes
Blogger/Maker: Naked Without Polish / Ever After Polish
Description: A royal purple with purple glitter in different shades and shapes.
Application & Formula: First coat is very sheer, second coat is still patchy, so you will need 3 coats. That glitter pay off though!
Opacity: 3 coats
Dry time: 10 minutes
Blogger/Maker: Xoxo, Jen / Literary Lacquers
Description: A deep vampy purple holo with coppery orange sparkle and shift.
Application & Formula: Nearly a 1 coater! Formula and application are excellent.
Opacity: 2 coats
Dry time: 10 minutes
Blogger/Maker: Addicted to Polish / Sweet Heart Polish
Description: A purple jelly with green shimmer & glass flakes with micro holo glitters.
Application & Formula: I had some difficulties with application as formula was a tad bit on the goopier side. It's to be expected with jelly finishes though!
Opacity: 2 coats
Dry time: 10 minutes

Price & Availability: The box will be $45 plus shipping, ships internationally! Available for pre order April 15th - April 22nd. Boxes will ship no later than May 6th.

The first 25 people to order will receive a coloring page of our box mascot, Craycorn! My husband created us nail polish obsessed girls the PERFECT mascot, a unicorn crazily clutching a nail polish bottle! There *might* be a coloring contest in the Facebook group soon :)
