Awesome Sauce Indie Box - Exotic Destinations (swatches and review)

**press sample**
Hi guys! Today I have the upcoming Awesome Sauce Indie Box! In case you haven't heard about this, it is a collaboration box between Anonymous Lacquer, Aurora Lacquers, Ever After Polish and Lavish Polish. They put out this awesome box quarterly and have one guest Indie create a polish to go along with their current theme! For this box, the guest Indie is none other than Krys of Vapid Lacquer! We all know how much I heart Krys, so I was excited to see her included!


The upcoming box's theme is Exotic Destinations! I personally think each Indie nailed the theme perfectly!

In an effort to just get right to the goods, I'll tell you right now...all five polishes are amazing! Each polish is pretty unique to my collection and all of them had fantastic formulas! I also really feel like, though each polish is so different, they somehow go together perfectly as a collection!

Wanna see what I am talking about? Keep reading!

Vapid Lacquer created the amazing Garota de Ipanema! It is a neon-like purple creme with a gorgeous coppery shimmer throughout and a hint of scattered holo! It reminds me somewhat of a bright radiant orchid! It's got that perfect Vapid formula I have grown to love so much! Just two easy coats, plus topcoat!

Lavish Polish made Key to Paradise, which is this gorgeous seafoam green jelly that is loaded with holo micro glitter, teeny tiny turquoise and silver glitters and small turquoise hex glitters! This was completely opaque for me in two coats, but I added a third just to be sure for my macros!

Created by Ever After Polish, is the absolutely stunning Waianapanapa! OMG! This is a black jelly holo that is jam packed full of a rainbow of holo micro glitters! I just can't! it is so pretty! This baby was also just two coats!

Endless Sunset, inspired by the sunset on the island of St. Thomas, was dreamed up by Aurora Lacquers! It is a peachy toned orange crelly filled with matte teal hex, holo teal hex and matte yellow circle glitters! Such a simply and beautiful color combination! I am not generally too much of an orange fan, but this tone mixed with the teal is amazing! For my photos, I again did just two coats!

Anonymous Lacquer created Best Belize! This one is inspired by the Great Blue Hole in the oceans of Belize. It is a deep marine blue jelly holo filled with blue to green shifting flakies! Super gorgeous and certainly brings your thoughts to the ocean! Best Belize was another two coater with a perfect formula!

The Jojoba Cuticle Oil included, is made by Anonymous Lacquer and smells so good! She describes the scent as strong, fresh, sweet and lemony & she is exactly right! It is lemony, without being overpowering and sort of made me want to lick my fingers....is that gross?! I have been using this oil for over a week now and love how moisturizing it is. I am also completely new to the rollerball packaging and I think I really like it!

The Shimmering Body Lotion, "The Girl from Ipanema"  was created by Vapid Lacquer and is amazing! Oh my goodness...it smells absolutely intoxicating and made me want to book the next flight to anywhere exotic and tropical! It is a goat milk lotion that is meant for the body and hands. It smells of coconut, mango and papaya and I seriously want another gallon of it! It also has this subtle coppery shimmer throughout that gives the skin a hint of a glow; not to mention it is super moisturizing! Perfect for the look of healthy glowing , summer skin!

This entire box was amazing! I had no issues with any of the products! All the polishes are so beautiful and have formulas made of perfection! The polishes alone are worth purchasing the box, but the addition of the cuticle oil and lotion make it even better!

This Awesome Sauce: Indie Box will be available for pre-order on their website July 17th thru July 24th and will be available in both fulls size ($50) and mini ($27)! Be sure you are following them for more information on this and future boxes!

Thanks for reading!
