October 2016 Awesomesauce Box: Swatches and Review

Provided for Review
Hi everyone! For today, I have a collaboration box to share with you all. This is the Lisa Frank inspired Awesomesauce Box, featuring polishes from Anonymous Lacquer, Ever After Polish, Different Dimension, and Lavish Polish. In addition to those four polishes, there will also be a few extras, including water slide decals from Green Goddess Creations, a large rainbow nail file, a little bag of neon start glitter and a cuticle balm sample (mine was Rum Butter but I don't know if the scents will be varied or all the same). I grew up at what I think is the height of Lisa Frank's popularity in the late 90's so I definitely owned my share of Lisa Frank items. The bright colors, both from the polishes and the extras evoked the playful and fun spirit that came with Lisa Frank. 

The October Awesomesauce Box will be available as a pre-order from October 7th at 8 pm EST until next week, October 15th in the Awesomesauce Box shop! The full size set will be $40 plus shipping and a mini set listed as well. 

Anonymous Lacquer Dream Like a Unicorn
Two coats
Indigo blue/purple linear holographic with subtle purple shimmer
A beautiful and deep, bold blue with super easy application, barely needing two coats for coverage.

Different Dimension Stargazer
Three coats
Clear base with silver holographic micro-glitter plus white and neon matte glitter
I love this holo glitter-bomb! I added on the stars from the bag that was included in the box and the extra pop of bright color is...wait for it... awesome. While it is a full coverage glitter, you will need a few coats for complete coverage, I have it shown in three. Plus a double layer of topcoat to have that smooth shiny finish.

Ever After Polish Let's Be Frank 
Two coats
Bubblegum pink scattered holographic with iridescent shimmer
A juicy pink and I love how you see flashes of pink/violet/blue from the iridescent shimmer. Slightly thicker formula which applies easily, this is two coats for opacity. 




(Under LED Light)


Lavish Polish Chasing Rainbows
Three coats
Orchid purple holographic with blue fleck shimmer
A warmer, lighter toned purple that is oh so nice. The holo is not super dense, think a scattering of sparkle rather than a tight holo flame. The formula is a thinner consistency, you could have coverage in two coats but for me, three was better.
