The Beauty Quartet Out With the Cold, In With the Hue April Box: Swatches and Review

Provided for Review
Hello! I am excited to share with you The Beauty Quartet Box for April, themed Out With the Cold, In With the Hue. If you don't have experience with the previously released boxes, here is a little blurb to introduce you: 

So, with that info in hand, you are probably wondering what is in this month's box. April's Out With the Cold, In With the Hue box will consist of four polishes from Smokey Mountain Lacquers, Philly Loves Lacquer, Digital Nails, and guest maker Rica, as well as four other nail products from those same makers. 

The Beauty Quartet Box is available now until March 15th, as a pre-order (though quantities max out at 50) in Philly Loves Lacquer's shop for $50 shipped in the US, $55 shipped to Canada, and $60 shipped internationally. 

Smokey Mountain Lacquers Electric Sun
Two coats
Mid-tone yellow creme with yellow shimmer
This is such a sunny color, you can't help but be cheered up by it. No issues with formula. 



Smokey Mount Lacquers Chocolate Angel Cake Cuticle Oil Rollerball
This is a full size rollerball, not a mini. The scent is just the right amount of sweetness to it. 


Rica You're No April Fool
Three coats
Magenta linear holographic
I love the color, it's definitely one of my favorite shades of pink. The formula is on the thin side, but I got full color coverage in three coats. I don't have any direct sunlight photos for you, as the weather has been rainy and gloomy for weeks where I live. 



Rica Glossy Glam Top Coat
This is a full size bottle of top coat, which was a very nice addition, I can never have too much top coat. 


Digital Nails To Thine Own Self Be True
Two coats
Bright periwinkle blue with varied blue iridescent glitter
Another beautiful color! I especially like the glints of iridescence you see from the glitter in periwinkle base. It is on the thick side but that did not give me issues with application. 



Digital Nails Bitter Almond Handmade Soap Square
This soap is just the right size and smells so good. 


Philly Loves Lacquer Screw You, Groundhog! 
Two coats
Coral orange linear holo with gold shimmer
I am gonna mention the color again but it's only because that is my favorite aspect of the box, all four polish colors (including this one) are nice and bright and definitely fit into the theme. This holo has a jelly base but it is opaque enough that I need just two coats for coverage. 



Philly Loves Lacquer Could It BE Any Sunnier?! linear holographic top coat
This little mini bottle is so cute! And you can add some holo sparkle to whatever base you choose. 


As I mentioned early, I wasn't able to get direct sunlight photos but I still wanted to show off how it would look over a base, so I applied it over one of my go-to blues, Nina Ultra Pro Cobalt


Remember the box is only available via Philly Loves Lacquer's shop until March 15th

  11. Thank you! I have been using that oil for the last few days and I like more than I thought I would (me and foodie/desert scents don't always go).
