September What's In-die box?: Sex and the City

Hey guys! Today I have a selection of Aussie polishes, all included in September's What's In-die Box? set. What's In-die Box? is a monthly set of polish, all from Australian indie polish makers. Each month has a specific theme and the polishes themselves are created just for the box and may be limited or exclusive editions. The box is priced at about $48, as well as shipping cost from Australia (about $15). While that looks like a big number, it comes out to about $13 a polish, a comparative price to what they are sold for individually in US polish e-tailers.  I had the opportunity to get September Sex and the City themed box and I jumped on it! I have been branching out into Aussie indie polishes, many of which I really like, so this was a perfect way to try out some new and fun colors. The Sex and the City box this month has polishes by  Celestial Cosmetics, Emily de Molly, Glam Polish, Lilypad Lacquer, and Peita's Polish

Celestial Cosmetics I Miss New York
Three coats
Silver foil with silver and red glitter
I like this polish but I wish the base color was a bit less sheer. Otherwise, very pretty and probably something to break out again for the holiday season in December. 



Emily de Molly Neutral Agreement
Two coats
Taupe creme with silver holo, gold and bronze glitter. 
I love neutral-with-a-twist type polishes so this one definitely is something that appealed to me. 



Glam Polish Carrie Me Away!
Two coats
Aqua blue crelly (creme/jelly) with holo microglitter and blue shimmer. 
This vivid sparkling blue is wonderful and to me, fits the character of Carrie to perfection.



Lilypad Lacquer City Lights
Two coats
Dark green scattered holo with gold/green micro-flakes.
Very sparkly in full sunlight! Inspired by New York City's massive number of city lights but I am reminded of the city streets more than anything else. 




Peita’s Polish Labels or Love
Three coats
Raspberry pink with silver holo and pink glitter
I think this one is my favorite of the set, which surprised me. Normally I shy away from pink polishes but this one so bright and shiny, I love it!



October's What's In-die Box? Theme is Little Box of Horrors which is unfortunately sold out. BUT make sure to check back in October for November's themed box. Since Peita's Polish is the brand hosting this monthly box, look to her Facebook page for updates (as well as information on her own brand).  

Llarowe has started a similar concept, this one of US based indie polish brands and details about that can be found here

    1. Thanks Gillian! I think I have seen some of these pop up on Facebook nail polish selling groups, so make sure to keep an eye out for them.
