PRESS SAMPLE: these were sent to me for review

Hello lovely readers! I have an amazing post to share with you all today. I normally like to get my videos and blog posts out before a sale but unfortunately I had some issues with the post office and not receiving an item in time. Thankfully the pre-order is still going strong and we’ve got a few more days to check out this box.

The annual breast cancer box is hosted by the maker of Turtle Tootsie Polish, Chrissy. She’s a survivor herself and this box is not only to raise awareness, but to raise funds for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). A portion of proceeds from all sales in this massive collab will be donated to the BCRF. Each item has some sort of take on the color pink. I love how they are all different, but incorporate the color in some aspect of their contribution. I have all of the polishes and a few extras that will be available for this year’s box. Some are capped, so let’s dive right in.

6 Harts Polish: Take All the Silly Selfies

  • Description: Lilac-leaning pink holo with subtle green shimmer
  • Cap: 70

Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is smooth, buttery and heavily flirts with being a one coater. This is super satisfying on the brush strokes, and I think is a very flattering lilac/pink shade. The holo gives a strong depth.

Alter Ego: Armor On Ready to Fight

  • Description: pastel pink chrome base
  • Cap: None

Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is smooth and metallic on the brush strokes and heavily flirts with being a one coater. You’ll want to go in light on your brush strokes to prevent streaking, and it builds super smooth and fast.

Anchor and Heart: Feel For Lumps Save Your Bumps

  • Description: A vibrant mint/aqua green crelly with contrasting pink/fuchsia/gold/green shimmer.
  • Cap: 200

Swatches show three coats with topcoat. Formula is crelly like, but leans a touch more on the jelly side. This is a touch soft so if you have a prominent free edge like myself, you might see just a touch of your smile line in very bright lights. The shimmer is strong in person and easily shifts between pink to gold and green.

Colores de Carol: Shine Bright

  • Description: a medium pink crelly with pink shimmer and pink and silver holo glitter
  • Cap: None

Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is crelly like and smooth on application and builds up very easily. It almost behaved like a cream, and you’ll get loads of glitters on your nails.

Crystal Knockout: Strong Spirit

  • Description: A bright pink to pale pink thermal filled with iridescent glitters and color-shifting flakes in purple and aqua
  • Cap: None

Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is crelly like with a bit of squish to the brush strokes. The warm state is quite soft, so I think you’ll see just a bit of your smile line when warm. Over the temperature reaction was very sensitive and easily transitioned for me.

Cuticula: Stronger Than Yesterday

  • Description: Pink crelly with various colored micro flakes, pink and orange holographic flakes, blue and green metallic micro flakes, and green – blue ultra chameleon chrome shifting flakes.
  • Cap: None

Swatches show three light coats with topcoat. Formula is creamy and smooth on application and full opacity can be reached easily between 2-3 coats. The base color has a strong lavender lean in certain lights, and the flakes pop very well against it.

Fair Maiden Polish: Brave Heart

  • Description: A classic hot pink with eye catching magenta to green shifting shimmer.
  • Cap: None

Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is jelly like with a bit of squish and very easy to build to opacity. I knew this might give a little trouble in terms of color accuracy across screens, so please note this is a very hot pink in person with an easy shift to magenta and green at extreme angles from the shimmer.

Gilded Rebel: Strong Pendant Necklace

  • Description: Hand stamped pendant with rose quartz bead

  • Description: The palest of pink bases with pink to blue to purple shifting shimmer and holo micro flakies
  • Cap: None

Swatches show three coats with topcoat. Formula is jelly like but builds up perfectly. This is soft, but so glowey in person. It reminds me of a super soft pink pearl with a lovely pink to blue to purple shift from all of the shimmer.

Music City Beauty: Perfect

Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is creamy and easy to build up. There’s a strong scattered sparkle. It does dry down flat, so I’d suggest a glossy topcoat.

  • Cap: 65

Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is rich and crelly like and dense on application. I can’t really see many needing to go to a third coat. I’d suggest a good glossy topcoat as this is a touch thirsty. There’s loads of sparkles here too.

  • Cap: None

Swatches show three coats with topcoat. Formula is jelly like and smooth on the brush strokes. There’s a very strong glow from the pink/purple shimmer. I had no issues getting glitters on my nails, so no need for placement or fishing.

Turtle Tootsie Polish: Giving Up is NOT an Option

  • Description: A mauve pink holo base with rose gold shimmer and gold flakies
  • Cap: None

Swatches show three coats with topcoat. Formula is smooth and creamy on application. I honestly feel like most can get away with two coats, as I almost went in for overkill on that third coat. It deepens out perfectly and the flakes give a small particle reflective like appearance.

Under a Hula Moon: Wax melts in the scent Shine.

  • Description: a coral wax with scent notes of bergamot, grapefruit and orange blended with notes of fresh laundry dried on a beach breeze.
  • Cap: None

I used one cube to melt in my wax warmer, and I’ve got to say the throw (scent travel) is crazy strong in this. If you’re in an apartment like me, I would even use half a cube! I mostly get a lovely orange top note, with a clean undertone in the after scents. It’s very pleasant and very strong.
