Awesome Sauce: Indie Box - Princess of Power

Press Sample 

Greetings! Today, I have an awesome collaboration box to share with you! The Awesome Sauce: Indie Box is a quarterly themed box put together by four permanent contributors and one guest. The permanent contributors are Ever After Polish,  Lavish Polish, Anonymous Lacquer, and Aurora Lacquers. For this box, Aliquid Lacquer is the guest contributor.
This box includes five gorgeous polishes, one from each of the contributors, a Sea Side Escape hand scrub from Ever After Polish, and a piña colada lip balm from Aliquid Lacquer. The theme for this box is based on the 1980s toy line and cartoon series, Princess of Power.

All swatches are topped with Gem Glam Top Coat by Dream Polish for a super glossy finish. Now, let's get to it!

"Glimmer-Ella" by Ever After Polish is a full-coverage micro glitter packed with super fine purple glitter, super fine blue micro flakes, small metallic red hex glitter, and holo shimmer. Shown here is two coats. This is such a beautiful, delicate shade and the scattered red hex glitter really makes "Glimmer-Ella" stand out. 

"Undersea Defender" by Aliquid Lacquer is a beautiful teal crelly packed with gold micro flakes and an assortment of iridescent hex and square glitter. Shown here is two coats. This beauty was just a touch more green-leaning than this swatch shows as I couldn't quite capture its true color. One thing I can assure you of is that it is absolutely stunning. The name is so fitting as well! 

"She Sees All" by Lavish Polish is a clear-based glitter topper loaded with metallic and holographic blue hex glitter in a three different sizes, metallic and holographic gold square glitter in two sizes, and super fine gold micro flakes. Shown here is one coat worn over "Dapper," also by Lavish Polish. "She Sees All" looks gorgeous worn as a glitter topper, and I imagine it could be worn as a full-coverage polish in two to three coats. 

"She-Ra Soldier" by Anonymous Lacquers is a platinum silvery-white to gold color-shifting holographic polish. Shown here is two coats. Depending on the light, this polish sometimes looks silver, sometimes gold. I found that it leans silver in natural light, and gold indoors, as you will see in the macro below. It is like having two gorgeous manis wrapped up in one polish!

"Crystalline Frost" is a full-coverage silver micro glitter polish filled with holographic teal hex glitter and metallic navy blue hex glitter in two sizes. Shown here is two coats. Another perfectly chosen name! I love the mixture of blue glitter scattered throughout this frosty silver beauty, so perfect!

In addition to all those beautiful polishes, with your purchase of this edition of the Awesome Sauce Indie Box, you will also receive Sea Side Escape hand scrub from Ever After Polish and  piña colada lip balm from Aliquid Lacquer. 

Sea Side Escape hand scrub consists of sea salt, sweet orange, eucalyptus, coconut oil and Vitamin E. When I opened it, I picked up the subtle scents of orange and eucalyptus, which smelled lovely! I followed the instructions on the label, and said hello to soft, moisturized hands. I've used this several times since it arrived and I am totally in love with it!

Aliquid Lacquer's piña colada lip balm consists of mango seed butter, beeswax, apricot kernel oil, olive oil, and, of course, piña colada fragrance. It has the sweet and tangy scent of pineapple and coconut, which smells just delicious! Full disclosure, I am a lip biter, so my lips are often cracked and chapped. I have been using this lip balm for a few weeks now, and my lips feel so soft and smooth! I just love it!

Long story short, the name of this box says it all: awesome sauce! I loved each of the components! All five polishes were superb in quality and composition: excellent formulas, beautiful colors, and a unique assortment that affords you a multitude of options for creative manicures. The bonus treats of hand scrub and lip balm smelled lovely and were very effective. I highly recommend this box for its quality of product as well as the fact that you get to try polishes and products from five unique brands at a great price. 
The Awesome Sauce: Indie Box will be available for preorder starting this Friday, April 3rd at 5PM EDT in two size options:

Mini bottles: $36.00
