Crème à la Mode Summer 2016 Box: Swatches and Review

Provided for Review
Hello! Today I have a quartet of polishes that are part of the Summer Creme de la Mode (or C.A.L.M.) Box. The Creme de la Mode box is an all creme polish box, featuring polishes from Digital Nails, Indigo Bananas, Literary Lacquers, and Octopus Party Nail Lacquer

I so wanted to do some nail art with the set but I haven't had time to do that (summer reviews are in full swing!). You should check out Bedlam Beauty's review though, Nichole has a whole nail wheel full of ways to play with these polishes. 

The Crème à la Mode Summer 2016 Box will be available via pre-order sale, from Friday July 8th until Friday July 15th in Crème à la Mode's shop. The box retails for $26 plus shipping.

Digital Melonade
Two coats
Neon orange coral creme
Hot damn, will you just look at this color?! It's so eye-searing bright, which my camera can't really show off. And it makes me look just a bit more tan, always nice. Formula is wonderful, I applied two thin coats. 




Indigo Bananas Creme Bluelé 
Two coats
Bright cerulean blue creme
Mmmm, blue.....how I love thee. Not quite cobalt but more a cerulean blue and the perfect summer tropical blue for me. Thinner style formula which is what I have come to expect from Indigo Bananas but opaque enough to just need two coats.




Literary Lacquers Cyan-Tifically Proven
Three coats
Teal green creme
Saturated teal goodness, that's exactly what this is. And it compliments the other bold colors really well. This was nice and squishy in formula. I applied two coats and had just a bit patchiness but a thin third coat did the trick. 




Octopus Party Nail Lacquer You, Me, and Daiquiri 
Two coats
Off white with peach/pink tones
This made me think of linen clothes and lazy beach days. Because sometimes you need that neutral palette cleanser among the brights. Formula was very nice, I did two thicker coats for coverage, just because I wanted to see if I could get it opaque in two. If you apply thin coats, you may need a third.
