Good evening dears! I have a fantastic duo to share with you tonight. You are probably aware that Julie from Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer has a monthly Destination Duo box, a polish duo created with another indie maker where they both use a scenic/vacation picture for inspiration. This month the guest maker is the lovely Courtney from 6 Harts and the inspiration is a picture she took of Lolo Pass in Montana. With just that little snap shot of the woods I can only imagine how beautiful and scenic Montana is. I am always in awe when I see wooded parts of the country and stunning mountain ranges. Where I am from it's mostly just golden (read dried out tall grass and weeds) hills. But it's pretty in it's own way too. So the details you want to know about. The July Destination Duo will be available on 7/7 at 3:30pm Eastern. The box will be $30 shipped within the USA, $20 + shipping international. There are 30 boxes total split between the 2 shops so you can head over to either once the time hits and start shopping! Now let's jump in and check out this box!
Here is the inspiration picture of Lolo Pass, Montana.
And here's a bottle shot of the polishes! You will also get that fun little baggie of glitter as an extra. You can fancy up wither polish by adding the glitter to the top. It's not recommended to put the glitter into either polish though.
Let's start off with the 6 Harts. This is Rock of Ages. It's a medium grey with green microflakes, color shifting microflakes and dark grey microflakes with a touch of microglitter. This color perfectly depicts the giant boulder in the picture. It's quite interesting how you can see the colors on the rock itself and Courtney did a great job capturing that with her polish. It's a gorgeous yet subtle color. The formula was opaque and easy to work with. I am a thin painter so I used 3 coats for full coverage but really 2 would be all you need. I used the pad of my index finger to lightly place glitters on the tips of my accent and pinky nails. I thought it added a fun touch and added a little more bling to the mani. I finished with a layer of topcoat.
Julie's contribution to the box is Pining For the Pass. It's a pine green packed with red to gold to green shifting microflakies, gold flakes, and clear ultra holo microglitters. I definitely don't have any greens like this in my stash! I really liked how it all worked together and captured the green parts of the picture. It was a touch more sheer so I ended up needing 3 coats of this one to get full coverage. I used the pad of my finger again to add the glitter to my accent nail. I finished with a layer of topcoat.
