Monthly Awareness Polish Box | January 2018 | Mental Health Awareness

*Blogger Discount*

Hello everyone! Today I have swatches of the January 2018 Monthly Awareness Polish Box. The Monthly Awareness Polish Box is a collaborative endeavour where 6 polish makers come together and each create a polish based on that month’s charity. 10% of all proceeds are then donated to the charity. This month’s box will benefit Project Semicolon – an amazing organization whose mission is centered around mental heath and suicide prevention.

You Are Not Alone – Night Owl Lacquer

First up we have “You Are Not Alone” by Night Owl Lacquer. Described as a medium blue packed full of green shimmer and orange to green shifting iridescent shreds, this polish was opaque for me in 2 easy coats. It smoothed out very nicely with top coat and man oh man that blue!

Stamp It Out – Pretty Beautiful Unlimited

Next up we have “Stamp It Out” by Pretty Beautiful Unlimited. This polish is described as having a medium red leaning pink base with a pink/blue shifting shimmer, crystal flakes that shift copper/red/gold/green, and micro holo flakes and glitters. Application was easy, 2 coats to opacity for me with no pulling or bare spots which can sometimes happen with densely-packed polishes. Loved the dimension with the different textures. Smoothed out with one coat of top coat but to get that glass-like finish you may need two.

You Got This! – Sassy Pants Polish

Our third polish is “You Got This!” from Sassy Pants Polish. You Got This! is a kelly green holographic shimmer polish. It was fully opaque for me in two easy coats – and the vibrancy of the green intense – this is a glow from within polish!!

It’s Not A Decision – Great Lakes Lacquer

It’s Not A Decision” from Great Lakes Lacquer is a dark grey with abundant shimmer moving through purple to a glowing rosy gold and pinpricks of blue and green. This one was a one-coater for me, it applied well despite being a thicker polish (which makes it so opaque). Swatch below is one coat plus top coat. I love how it hinges on the lavender due to that rosy shimmer!

One Day At A Time – Bee’s Knees Lacquer

This polish by Bee’s Knees Lacquer is described as a rusty orange with pink shimmer and linear holo. 2 easy coats plus top coat and you’ve got gorgeous holo goodness on your nails!! I managed to catch a beautiful sun shot – a rare feat in Canada in the winter!

Progress Not Perfection – Supernatural Lacquer

“Progress Not Perfection” from Supernatural Lacquer is described as having a black base with burgundy/purple/gold shift and aqua/pink flakies. Despite the jelly-ish base of this polish (this is what allows those flakies to shine through), this was opaque for me in two easy coats plus top coat!
