Llarowe's A Box, Indied for January 2013

Since I missed reviewing the December box I wasn't sure how helpful this swatch posts would be for something you can't easily get anymore. However I sort of feel it is my duty to do the swatches for those few that see a bottle on a blog sale and want to know what they look like. I took these pictures on different days a week apart from each other. It's kind of interesting to see how long my nails grow in a week (with filing!) by the end of the post though. Anyway, here are the polishes from Llarowe's A Box, Indied for January 2013.

First up is Freak Show Polish Fire In The Sky. I wasn't thrilled by the last one I tried (Harvest Hayride) so I wasn't sure I'd like this one. It seems like this brand puts bars in everything, too, which you know how I feel about bars. Personal preference aside though it is a pretty nice polish! Glitter spread easily, nice color combination, and the short bars make it more bearable for me personally haha.

Next is Wicked Polish Dropping Balls. Love! I used three thin coats. Tons of glitters in here and nice coverage by the jelly base. And the name is awesome which is always a bonus.

Liquid Sky Lacquer New Beginnings might be my favorite from this box. I used three thin coats for this glorious polish. I love the subtle scattered holo, the pale blue, the assortment of glitters... sigh. The perfect winter polish.

Dollish Polish Auld Lang Syne is a lovely green-tinted gold metallic holo. I wasn't sure about this one at first as far as being a color I could pull off, but I ended up loving it. Bonus--work appropriate! I used three thin coats.

Lastly is Different Dimension Frozen Fairy Floss. This is definitely a fish and dab polish... but look how pretty! So delicate and so many awesome glitters including snowflakes. I used Essie Who Is The Boss? for my undies. Love.

Overall I feel like this is the first A Box, Indied that blew me away. I am perfectly in love with the polishes and they scream January to me. You can purchase your own box at Llarowe, looks like there might be some left still, too!
