I was fortunate to be able to score one…and was fortunate to get back into the the monthly subscription — huzzah!!!
As some of you may (or may not know), Mr Carinae and I have moved from California and are now in the gorgeous green state of Washington…so no more California sunshine. I once said I won’t use light boxes, but thanks to days and weeks of constant rain, I’ve found that it is a necessary thing for me. So while I’m going through my adjustment period, I hope you will be patient with me while I get back into the swing of things. You’ll see different lights here – sunlight, diffused light, natural shade, flash and direct light.
That said, on to the pictures!
First up is Jindie Nails’ Blue & Green’s Love Child.
The formula was like buttah. Glided on effortlessly and was opaque in two thin coats. I love this color and it looked really good on me. It’s a blue-green holo, which I was trying to coax to come out and play.
Colors by Llarowe – Courage, Brains, Heart
This was a color that was eagerly anticipated in a nail polish group that I’m a part of on Facebook. I had seen swatches and couldn’t wait to see it on me…and I was not disappointed. This is a gorgeous magenta with a super strong holo in sunlight.
Different Dimension – The Lovers, The Dreamers, And Me is a beautiful periwinkle-corn flower blue, depending on the light. This was my most favorite color out of the box. Strong holo and a good application. Below is three thick coats that dried in record time. Come see why I fell in love.
Girly Bits Perry-twinkle is a holographic periwinkle that leans a bit more towards the grey side. Formula is up the high standards I’ve come to expect from Girly Bits – dries quickly between coats and when it says holographic, it’s holographic. Shown below is two coats.
Dollish Polish Twist of Lime is another favorite of mine from Llarowe A Box Indied, April 2014. I did three coats because I wanted to see if this would get deeper, darker or richer. Three coats was perfect because while two were adequate, three made this color a bit darker and more gorgeous. It’s also a holo with subtle flakies and micro glitter. I LOVE this green…I love bright colors in polish and this fits my green love.
Were you able to grab Llarowe A Box Indied for April 2014? If so, do you like the colors? If not, do you regret not being able to get it?
