The Color Box: Purple Edition

Introducing the very first blogger collaboration box with a single color theme, The Color Box!
The first box's color theme is purple and will be available for pre-order opens at 2:30pm CDT April 15th for one week. The first 25 boxes ordered will come with a special coloring sheet of our mascat, the Craycorn!

After all pre-orders are shipped out, each brand has the option to stock their own shade in their own shop. Be sure to join the facebook group to vote on the next color and keep up on box related news.

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer and Manna's Manis created Manna's Majestic Masterpiece, a light lilac crelly packed with blue/purple iridescent and silver holo microglitter. Inspired by this photo.
The polish has a clean and fresh look, perfect for any occasion. I wore two coats and topcoat, the formula was fluid and easy to apply, no streaking or clumping.

Ever After and Naked Without Polish created Vivid Violet Voyage, a violet jelly base filled with linear holo, purple holo and metallic glitter in multiple sizes, royal blue glitter, and silver shards.
The formula on this was fantastic and after drying was practically smooth on it's own, although I did add topcoat for a glassy shine. Three coats used for an opaque look, but could possibly be used as a topper in one coat.

Turtle Tootsie Polishes and Amanda Loves Polish created Amanda's Unicorn With A Donut Horn, a pastel purple holo with different size magenta, blue and pink flakies. I really love how this polish has everything going on, yet is subtle from a distance. It's like having secret bling on your nails that only you can see close up! I wore two coats with topcoat and this had an easy smooth formula.

Sweet Heart Polish and Addicted to Polish created Addicted to Purple, a purple jelly with green shimmer & glass flakes with micro holo glitters. Inspired by this photo. I absolutely a-FREAKING-dore this polish! My two favorite colors all in one! The shimmer was being camera shy but is very visible in person. I wore three coats to insure opacity because I tend to paint thin coats when the polish is slightly thicker in formula.

I collaborated with Literary Lacquers to create Soul Within Me Burning, a deep vampy purple holo with flaming copper sparkle and shift. My inspiration for the polish color came from this photo and a poem, The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe. The coppery sparks and name come from the section of the poem where he is flaming mad about the noise outside:
Back into the chamber turning, all my soul within me burning,
Soon again I heard a tapping somewhat louder than before.
“Surely,” said I, “surely that is something at my window lattice;
Let me see, then, what thereat is, and this mystery explore—
Let my heart be still a moment and this mystery explore;—
’Tis the wind and nothing more!”
I wore two coats with topcoat and the formula was fantastic, as we have come to expect with any LitLaq polish.

I also wanted to see if Soul Within Me Burning would stamp, since it is so opaque. I used Amanda's polish as the base color and then stamped stars from VL002 and a unicorn from VL019 with my clear stamper. Then I topped the accent nail with a coat of Vapid Hollow for an extra sparkly unicorn.
