A Box, Indied – March 2016

I’ve got swatches of the upcoming March 2016 A Box, Indied subscription box to share! This month’s box – titled “Spring Theory” – features Black Cat Lacquer, Contrary PolishCrowsToes Nail Color, Fair Maiden Polish, and Girly Bits Cosmetics! This spring themed box releases for pre-order tomorrow Tuesday, March 1st. More details to come but first – swatches! 🙂

All swatches were taken indoors under a combination of Cree daylight and LED bulbs using a Samsung NX300 camera.

Black Cat Lacquer – “Eggcellent”

Eggcellent is a slightly blue leaning teal crelly with pastel hex and square glitters and added pink shimmer. Shown here is two coats plus top coat. This polish is filled with glitters that distribute very well. It also has great second coat coverage! This is a great spring crelly! 🙂

Contrary Polish – “Read My Tulips”

Read My Tulips (love the name!) is a warm toned violet base with lots of pink and copper shimmer. Shown here is three coats plus top coat. I had slight bald spots at the base of my nails so I needed a third coat to cover them up – although I did do a pretty thin first coat. Other than that, formula is great! Very easy to apply and control.

CrowsToes – “Mad as a March Hare”

Mad as a March Hare is a clear base topper PACKED with iridescent shimmer and flakes. Shown here is ONE coat over black plus top coat.  As you can see, this polish has amazing coverage! It applies well and the flakes lay flat so only one coat of top coat is needed to smooth it all out. This polish also looks great layered over lighter colors!

And of course I had to matte it! 😀

Fair Maiden Polish – “Going Off the Peep End”

Going Off the Peep End is a light rose colored linear holo with added shimmer and pink and silver metallic flakes. Shown here is two coats plus top coat. This polish is perfection! Perfect formula, perfect application, perfect light rose holo! ❤

Girly Bits Cosmetics – “Sprout and About”

Last up is Sprout and About – a stunning mint holo with lots of silver metallic flakes, micro glitters, and shimmers. Shown here is two coats plus top coat. This polish is gorgeous!! I absolutely love the mint hue and the added elements are perfection!

Overall Thoughts

Another great A Box, Indied! When I think of Spring, these polishes definitely fit right in. As usual, there’s a great mix of finishes as well as colors and the formulas are great! These polishes are prefect to get you out of those Winter blues and into the Spring mood! 🙂

This box will be priced at $50 and includes domestic shipping (international shipping extra). Pre-order will be here starting Tuesday, March 1st, through Friday, March 4th.

And get this!  Five random boxes will have a $25 Gift Certificate from one of the makers! So that means five lucky people will get an extra $25 to spend in one of the shops featured in the box! This will occur EVERY month too – not just this month! SO AWESOME!

For more information and swatch photos, you can visit the A Box, Indied Facebook Page, Llarowe Facebook Page, or any of the makers’ Facebook Pages (linked above). You can also check out any of the other ABI swatchers/bloggers – Cosmetic Sanctuary, Ermahgerd Perlish, My Nail Polish Obsession and Pointless Cafe – for their swatches and review! 🙂

These polishes were provided for my honest review.
