Anonamaker Box #4 featuring Cameo Colours Lacquers, Contrary Polish, ellagee, Lollipop Posse Lacquer, Pretty Jelly polishes

Purchased by Me buttonHey there everythingone (wow, I’m seriously sleep-deprived right now). Today I have a new-to-me collaborative indie polish box to show you. See, there’s this place called Acetone Alley on Facebook, where you can get the latest gossip & dish about nail related subjects. It’s a pretty cool place but it can also be a little dangerous (especially if someone is caught being shady!). There’s also a dropbox where people can send questions/rants/etc anonymously; this is where the idea of anonymous makers (anonamaker) for this collab box comes from. At any rate, for awhile now (obviously since we’re on box #4), makers have been coming together with polishes featuring catch phrases that have originated in the group.  I bought one of the first 10 (?) that were available for immediate shipping after they were shown off in the group and today starts the pre-order for the rest of the boxes. So – you’ve been warned – spoilers ahead!

It’s your last chance!


Okay, don’t say I didn’t warn you!

A Box Indied (May box)

Purchased by Me buttonGood morning lovelies! I’m dragging this week, how about you? Usually my husband takes the kids to school in the morning, because I *loathe* mornings and I can’t ever seem to get my sh*t together, even at 8 a.m. Well, this week my husband has had to be at work at about 6 a.m., which means I’m taking the kids. Oh man! Yesterday, we were late because I forgot to have the kids brush their teeth and had to turn around and come back home to do so. Sigh…

Anyway…awhile back I had picked up the May box from A Box Indied from Llarowe, and I finally had a chance to swatch them! This box included Black Cat Lacquer Poison Ivy, Hare Polish The Blooming Desert, Contrary Polish Darling Wildflower, CrowsToes Dead Man’s Bells, and Glisten & Glow Honeysuckle cuticle oil.
