I have one hell of a box to share today! I feel like this theme is quite overdue from our lovely Baroness herself, as the banner photo for the group has been that goofy cat for quite some time. I’d like to formally introduce ya’ll to the Black Friday LE box, themed cats in space!
Live Long and Paws-Pur. Official description: a rich purple jelly-ish base with three times the pegasus pee, and a bit of twinkly holo shimmer.
Swatch shows three thin coats plus topcoat. You can get away with two if you don’t mind a touch of VNL. This polish. So beautiful. A vibrant gorgeous purple. Application is a squishy jelly feeling and a medium viscosity. LOADED with shimmer. Some lighting you’ll see a green appearance, under bright lights is the beautiful blue you see below. If you saw my teaser for this in the fan group, you’ll see the shimmer appearing like an aqua green. I’m picky with purples, but this is absolutely necessary in a collector’s arsenal.
Meow-ky Way. Official description: a clear based topper with pink to green shifting unicorn pigment (no UP), pink to green shifting iridescent flakies, sterling silver microflakies and a touch of holo pigment and microflakies.
Swatches show one coat over black. This is the topper to end all toppers. I’m not even kidding. It’s blingtastic in person, and deliciously shifty. You’ll easily see the pink and green shift, and what I see as gold in some lighting. There’s a gemstone, reflective sparkle with the silver flakes and the little multichrome flakes make a nice scattered rainbow. This is very saturated, and you’ll only need the one coat for an instant galaxy effect. Everything is nice and smooth after top coat. I had no issues with everything laying down.
Space Cat. Official description: a jelly, berry pink base with turquoise to berry shimmer, sterling silver flakies, and a very light sprinkle of holographic shimmer.
First swatches shown are two coats with topcoat. Everything laid down nicely and was even after top coating. This beauty is so vibrant and shimmery in person. The flakes make this gorgeous sparkle. The blue you see peeking out here is very obvious in person. It’s got that reflective feel that a full flake polish has when sponged, if you know what I mean.
Then I got a little curious. I applied one coat over black and this happened. Freaking magic. I didn’t think I could love Space Cat more, but holy hell it’s versatility is magical.
In a Galaxy Purr Purr Away. Official description: a deep navy blue base with pink to green shifting shimmer, a rainbow of all colors of shifting iridescent flakies, violet to gold multichrome flakies, a sprinkling of holo microflakies and a touch of orange to green shifty microglitter.
My swatches show three very thin coats. You can easily get away with two, however if you guys remember several posts back I have an awful repair that I’ve been nursing. (it’s almost grown out, yay!!) so that needed a little extra coverage to hide. This beauty is magnificent. It really is a galaxy swirling around on your nail. In indoor lighting you’ll see the predominant purpley/pink shimmer, and on tilt the green starts to play. The flakes are EVERYTHING here. Before applying, I placed the bottle upside down for a few minutes to be sure I was able to pick everything up, and I had no issues with needing to fish or load the brush. The formula is jelly like and buttery feeling in spreading onto your nails.
I took a few extra shots to attempt to show the dimension here. (and yes, I did do a trim down lol your eyes aren’t deceiving you 😛 )
I love how all four perfectly captured a space feel. You can’t make me pick a favorite in this quartet, they are all amazing and in their own category of finish. Trust me, you want this box.
