Spring 2017 Seasonal Indie Box: Swatches and Review

Provided for Review
Hey guys and gals, for today I have a new collaboration box to share. This is the third Seasonal Indie Box, featuring permanent contributors Anchor & Heart Lacquer, Colores de Carol, and Turtle Tootsie Polishes, with special guest Heather's Hues in this time. 

The Spring Seasonal Indie Box will be available starting April 2nd through April 9th in Turtle Tootsie Polishes' shop. Pricing will be $35 plus shipping which is a great price considering the box includes four full sized polishes. 

Anchor & Heart Lacquer Sunshine & Pansies 
Three coats
Mellow gold toned yellow crelly with green shimmer, gold and silver micro-shreds, and larger glitter in violet, magenta, gold and silver.
My lighting brightens this just a bit, in person it's slightly duskier, definitely more a "mellow yellow". I like the subtle contrast from the various colored shimmer and glitter. It's not quite opaque in two coats, three coats worked out better for me.



Colores de Carol Jade Vine
Two coats
Turquoise linear holographic with gold and holo flakes and fine neon green glitter
Such a refreshing shade of turquoise green! The added flakes and holo will make it sparkle in the sun. Application was easy, I needed just two coats for coverage. 




Heather's Hues Hydrangea
Two coats
Lavender pastel with periwinkle shimmer and purple and indigo micro-flakes
I love purple hydrangeas and seeing them among the spring time blooms always makes me happy. This inspired polish is a lovely interpretation, though it is thicker in formula than I prefer, likely due to its pastel nature. Thinner coats worked best, I applied two here for coverage. A drop or two of nail polish thinner would likely help with that if you prefer thinner style formula. 




Turtle Tootsie Polishes Carnation 
Three coats
Bubble gum pink scattered holo with flashes purple with pink micro-flakes and iridescent rainbow flakes
Soft pinks are made for spring sets, amIright? The flash of purple adds some subtle loveliness, as do the various flakes. No issues with application, though with the first coat, it will look somewhat sheer, three coats though be opaque.
