Beauty Quartet Box + 4 - Part 2!

***Press Sample***


Hard to believe it's already halfway through September and that Halloween is next month!  The time has flown this year - but that's alright, because I *love* Halloween!!

It was especially exciting for me to have the opportunity to swatch the gorgeous polishes in the Halloween themed Beauty Quartet Box + 4 for October :D


Usually the Beauty Quartet Box features four indie nail polish brands, but for October, four additional brands contributed to the box, making it even MORE amazing!!  I've got the swatches of all the beauties for you, too!  

Warning, it's about to get drool-worthy picture-heavy up in this post.

Let's start with the Smokey Mountain Lacquers contribution "Reborn:"




Reborn is described as a fuschia crelly with a hint of shimmer that is black light reflective.  I am wearing three thin coats in the photos above with a layer of Pahlish's Magic Mirror Topcoat.

Next is the Philly Loves Lacquer contribution "Burning Rain of Death:"




Burning Rain of Death is described as a black jelly base filled with a rainbow of micro glitter and holo sparkles.  I am wearing two coats, and this one dries to a textured finish, so I added a layer of topcoat to smooth it out a bit.

Next is the Rica contribution "Vampire Sangria:"




 Vampire Sangria is described as a burgundy linear holo with a touch of gold holo microflakies.  Shown is two coats with topcoat.

Here is the Dollish Polish contribution "Welcome Foolish Mortals:"




Welcome Foolish Mortals is described as a black jelly with a hint of purple shimmer filled with matte aqua, blue, teal, periwinkle, amethyst, purple, and indigo glitters, with a hint of neon green and orange.  Shown above is two coats and topcoat.

Next is the Girly Bits contribution "Abracapocus:"




Abracapocus is described as a greyish/greenish holo base with green shimmer and orange, green, purple, and black glitters.  Shown above is two coats with topcoat.

Here is the My Indie Polish contribution "Blue Moon:"




Blue Moon is described as a cobalt holo jelly.  Shown above is two coats with topcoat.

Next is the Love, Angeline contribution "Boo!"




Boo! is described as an olive-leaning dark green linear holo with a gold flash.  Shown above is two coats with a topcoat.

And lastly we have the Gothic Gala Lacquers contribution "Sanguine Nocte:"




Sanguine Nocte is described as a burgundy with violet and red shimmer.  Shown above is two coats with topcoat.

So what do I think overall?  I think this is a fan-freakin-tastic box!!  Every polish applied well, and they are all gorgeous and fit perfectly with the Halloween theme.  Two polished thumbs way up!!

And all the art is freehanded by me ^_^  I couldn't help it, these polishes just called for it!!



This box will be available for pre-order tomorrow, September 15th via the Philly Loves Lacquer website and will be open until September 30th (or until all the boxes are sold).  There will be 50 boxes available, priced as follows: $65 shipped to anywhere in the US, $70 shipped to Canada, and $75 shipped everywhere else.  They will be shipped at the beginning of October, so they should arrive at your doorstep in plenty of time for Halloween.  Set your alarms!!!

What do you think of this box?  Do the polishes strike your fancy?  Will you be picking one up?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This box was sent to me for photography and review purposes.  All experience with the polishes and my opinions are my own, and remain 100% honest.

  18. Great nail art!! I'm not gonna lie, I'm tempted to buy this box just for the SML fuschia crelly. But my darn 'reasonable adult' side is not on board with that idea!
