Spring Break Survival Kit (swatches and review)

**press sample*
Hi guys! Today I have the upcoming Spring Break Survival Kit from five awesome makers! It contains four full size polishes, one bottle of scented nail tape, cuticle oil, water slides, a glass file and toe separators; all in a cute little bag.
Lets take a closer look at everything!

Turtle Tootsie Polishes' Teeny Weeny Pink Bikini is a gorgeous deep pink holo  with a fantastic formula! This was pretty opaque in just one coat, but I added a second just to be sure. Depending on your application, you might get away with just the one coat though.

Supernatural Lacquer's Bermuda Triangle is an amazingly bright, blue toned green shimmer polish. This was almost a one coater, but not quite. Here I did two coats, plus topcoat! They also contributed a Blue Hawaiian nail oil in a mini roller ball that smells divine and is super moisturizing without being too greasy!

Seventy Seven Nail Lacquer's Beach Party is a beautiful medium purple creme/crelly that's filled with pink flakies. Here I did just two coats, but depending on your application, you may need a third.

Black Label Nails' Badfish is a gorgeous, bright blue scattered holo jelly that's filled with silver hex glitters in various sizes. Here I did three thin coats, but depending on your application you may get away with just two.

Cuticula Nail Tape has contributed a 15mL bottle of strawberry scented liquid nail tape that is filled with teeny red microglitters and small green glitters that give it a lovely strawberry look. It has a regular polish brush, which I prefer, dried in under two minutes and peeled off in one piece. They also included some cute little water slides of strawberry flowers.

To assist in your mani/pedi needs, the kit also includes a glass nail file and toe separators!

I really loved everything in the kit and think its such a cute idea! I thought all of the polishes had great formulas and the colors go really well together! I can definitely see a few of these being staples in my pedicure arsenal this spring and summer!

The Spring Break Survival Kit will be available for pre-order in Black Label Nails' shop from February 28th through March 6th; all boxes will be shipped out no later than March 14th.
