Good morning (or afternoon). I'm having a very lazy day, the weather is kind of weird so I'm totally content to just hang around the house, moving from the couch to my bed all day long. I definitely put in my dues over the last few days so I don't even mind. It also gives me time to catch up on posts and swatching. Today I have the upcoming Addicted To Holos October Box to show you. I have reviews a few of the ATH sub boxes and I have to say this one is my favorite. The formulas and colors are all outstanding! The Addicted To Holos October Box will be available for pre-order from 10/5 to 10/12. The box, with 5 full sized polishes, will be $50 plus shipping. There is also International shipping available. So now that you know the details, let's check out the goods!
Up first I have Literary Lacquers Phoenix In Her Blood. This is such a gorgeous sangria colored holo. Just the perfect amount of dark mixed with red - great Fall color! Formula and application were both stellar. I used 2 coats of Phoenix In Her Blood for full coverage and no topcoat. *you could easily use 2 coats but I wanted you to see the depth of the color*
The Polish Bar created Purple Mist for the October Box. Ooooh sounds eerie and creepy right? But it's absolutely gorgeous! This is a medium purple holo with pewter micro glitters added in. This is such a great color and it'll be the perfect purple for Halloween manis! Formula and application were both great. I used 3 coats of Purple Mist for full coverage and no topcoat.
Next is Philly Loves Lacquer, Taisteal Sabhailte. This means Safe Travels in Irish. It's a fabulous "coralesque orange linear holo with gold flash and copper shimmer." Such a fabulous Fall color - it makes me think of leaves that have changed color. Makes me wish I lived in a New England area so I could fully appreciate the season. The formula was nice, a bit crelly-ish and the application was good. I used 3 coats of Taisteal Sabhailte and no topcoat.
Sweet Heart Polish came up with Sugar & Spice. No surprise this is my favorite in the collection. This warm brown holo with pink flash is superb! The formula was nice and creamy and the application were perfect. Sugar & Spice was thisclose to being a 1 coater! But to truly show off the color I ended up using 2 coats. No topcoat.
Last but not least is Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer Sepulcher By The Sea. I've noticed a huge trend this for Aqua this season. And I'm totally not complaining because it's a beautiful color and very unexpected for the Fall season (unexpected is good). BEGL really nailed the trend and came up with a truly stunning color! The addition of the gold and pink flecks really make it unique. The formula was really nice - it's described as a jelly but I found it much more opaque and creamy than that. It applied nicely too. I used 2 coats of Sepulcher By The Sea and no topcoat.
