Indies Outside the Box Debut Box

Indies Outside the Box Debut Box – Press Samples

YOU GUYS! Today I have the GORGEOUS colors to show you from the Indies Outside the Box Debut Box! First, some information:

We’re a quarterly box with a twist – the entire box is completely fan-created! IOTB will feature four brands each quarter and you, the fans, get to tell us what to use as inspiration for our polishes!

Each quarter IOTB will feature four fantastic brands: Lollipop Posse Lacquer, Top Shelf Lacquer, and two guests. For our inaugural box, we are excited to feature Digital Nails and Ellagee as our guests!

We’ll begin each round of boxes by introducing the participating brands and asking you guys to submit inspiration pictures. Each brand will have its own inspiration thread, so that gives you the opportunity to submit pictures that are brand-specific and help to play up the aesthetic and strengths of each brand!

Which leads us to this, the first box! The chosen photos were amazing and the makers nailed the colors. Ok, enough talking, lets get to the Indies Outside the Box Debut Box!

Formula/Application: You would think with the glitter it would be a bit sticky, but I actually had zero problems with application. Lovely formual!

Coverage: Near opaque in two coats

Color:  Varying earth toned micro glitters in a clear base

Finish: Microglitter jelly

Notes: I love this inspiration photo. 99 percent of the time I want to be outside, and the colors in this polish steal my heart. It’s hard to pull off a good glitter jelly, and Ellagee perfected it!

Formula/Application: No issues to report, it went on perfectly

Coverage: VNL with two coats

Color:  Turquoise jelly base with shimmer and flake

Finish: Jelly shimmer flake

Notes: I chose not to do three coats on this one because I really liked how it looked with two. I am interested in trying this over a like-colored base to see how it pops out the colors of the flakes, or works with the base color. But I wanted to keep it ‘pure’ and show it by itself…and it’s so so pretty. Reminds me of the clear gorgeous waters of the Caribbean!
