Seasonal Indie Box - Winter 2017 (swatches and review)

**press sample**
Hi guys! Today I have the new Seasonal Indie Box to share with you! This box will be released just four times per year! The permanent makers are Chrissy of Turtle Tootsie Polishes, Taryn of Anchor & Heart Lacquer and Carol of Colores de Carol. Each box will also have one guest maker! For the inaugural box, the guest maker is Stefanie of Supernatural Lacquer! Let's take a look!

Anchor Heart Lacquer

Winter Blues is a gorgeous, almost neon blue crelly filled with blue shimmer, blue and white glass flakies and a scattering of navy blue holo glitters. This has a pretty opaque formula that covered really evenly on one coat. The second coat deepened the color a bit and really smooth everything out. There's not a ton a glitter, mostly flakies, so it was relatively easy to remove.

Turtle Tootsie Polishes

Fallen Ice Pellets is a beautiful pale light blue holo with teeny tiny blue flakies. This is such a pale blue that it almost appears silvery/gray. Here I did two coats plus topcoat, but depending on your application you may need to add a third. This dried pretty shiny on its own and was easy to remove.

Colores de Carol

Frosty Air is a lovely white crelly base filled with golden shimmer; as well as gold and light blue metallic glitters and light blue star glitters. In true crelly fashion this can be opaque in two to three coats. Here I did three thin coats plus topcoat. All of the glitter came out pretty easily, except the stars. I stored my bottle upside and had to do a little fishing to get those out. The glitter may require two coats of topcoat to really smooth them out and they will make it a little more difficult to remove as well.

Supernatural Lacquer

Frostmaiden is a gorgeous pale purple base filled with lavender micro flakes, icy blue shimmer and holo. Here I did three thin coats, but you may be able to get away with just two. There are no large glitters in here, all flakies, so removal is really easy.

Great polishes and really great group of makers! The Winter 2017 box will be available for preorder on January 8th at 6pm EST thru January 15th for $35 plus shipping in Turtle Tootsie Polishes shop!. There is a 50 box max. It will also be available to be shipped international!

Thanks for reading!
