Awesome Sauce Indie Box - Life in Plastic Featuring Cupcake Polish (swatches and review)

**press sample**
Hi guys! Today I have the newest Awesome Sauce Indie Box to share with you! The box includes polishes from the four permanent makers of Ever After Polish, Lavish Polish, Vapid Lacquer and Anonymous Lacquer. Each box also includes a fifth rotating guest; this box's guest is Cupcake Polish as well as contributions from Lou It Yourself!

You won't be disappointed! Check out everything below!

Let's Go Party, by Lavish Polish, is a lavender crelly filled with gold and silver holo  micro glitter, a fine holo pink glitter and a dash of scattered holo! Gorgeous color and fantastic formula! For my photos I did two coats plus topcoat!

Bridezilla, by Anonymous Lacquer, is a creamy white crelly polish filled with micro iridescent flakies that flash a beautiful pink and blue. Because this is a white, its formula is a tad on the thicker side. Not bad by any means, just thicker. For my photos I did three thin coats plus topcoat; though, depending on your application you might get away with just two. The pink and blue shimmer was very hard to capture in my full mani photo, but you can really see it in the macros!

Demolition Barbie, by Vapid Lacquer, is black creme base filled with holo micro flakies and color shifting glass based pigments that move from purple to blue. So beautiful! For my photos I did two coats plus topcoat! It looks amazing glossy, but man oh's glorious matte!

Malibu Barbie, by Ever After Polish, is a sheer, dusty aqua jelly filled with holo micro shimmer and a pink flash. Really beautiful! This is pretty sheer, but I was able to reach full opacity with just three thin coats. This one would be a great candidate for a pond mani, as it's sheer enough to be able to layer some nail art between coats as well!


Barbie Girl, by Cupcake Polish, is a gorgeous medium pink linear holo and a hint of a purple flash! This had a fabulous formula that was almost opaque in just one coat. It covered really evenly on the first coat, but the second coat made it match what was in the bottle. The holo is glorious in this too!

The Extras:

Ever After Polish included Malibu Mud Exfoliating Face Mask & Scrub! No idea what the scents are, but it smells amazing! I have used this twice so far and each time it left my skin feeling very soft and exfoliated! The mask is made with Bentonite and Sea Clay, as well as Sea Kelp.

Lavish Polish included some super cute Barbie head charms in gold and silver tones!

Anonymous Lacquer added in a sample size of their Lotion Bar in the scent Pearberry! Smells light and fresh! It's made of Cocoa Butter and Oil, Mango Butter, Bees Wax, Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E and Fragrance.

Lou It Yourself contributed some adorably sparkly pink Barbie head decal/vinyls!

Awesome box as always! I particularly love this theme too! I was a big fan of the song that inspired it when I was in highschool and still know almost all the words to it! haha!

In case you live under a rock and are unsure of where this theme came from, here's the song it's inspired by! (caution: it will be stuck in your head for hours!)

What happens when you use everything in the boxin one mani?! Awesomeness happens, that's what! Haha! (I also cut out the background of part of Lou's decal and used it as a vinyl for my middle nail)

The "Life in Plastic" Box will be available for pre-order starting on March 25th at 6pm PST. Pre-order will run for one week, until April 1st. Remember, each polish is exclusive to this box and will not be available for purchase anywhere else! If you don't love everything in the box, why not share with someone else?! There is currently a thread in the Awesome Sauce Facebook Group where you can post your ISO and For Sales for this box!

  6. I put my gloss in a little muslin bag, but that's not really working either because it gets tangled up easily.

  7. I wish there were more places like this, because it was simply too amazing for words. I came here with my boyfriend the other night, and it was absolutely fabulous. The use of wood throughout the San Francisco event venues adds a very warm and inviting feel to venue.
