Hey y’all! Today I have a really special swatch and review to share with you of the debut of the Monthly Polish Awareness Box, starting this month for lung cancer awareness. The Monthly Polish Awareness Box includes 6 polishes and each month a portion of the sales will be donated to a designated charity or cause. This box will retail for $52.00 plus $6.80  for shipping and will be available for preorder starting Oct. 23 thru Nov. 2. In honor of lung cancer awareness month 10% of each box sold will be donated to lung.org! I did purchase my box with a blogger’s discount.

First up is Beauty In Every Breath by Alter Ego Nail Enamel. This polish is described as a “pearl, white base with 5 different color shimmers.” Alter Ego is a new to me brand but the formula on this polish was super easy to use! It is on the more sheer side but built up beautifully to near opacity at 3 coats. This would make a beautiful topper as well!

Next up is Breathe by Pretty Beautiful. Breathe is described as a “a white base with, green, orange, bronze, garnet, navy and caramel hex glitters in various size. There is also lime/gold and copper galaxy glitters and copper shimmer.” This had full coverage for me in just 2 coats, the amount of glitter in this polish is intense in the best way!

Next up is Got Air? by Lifestyle Lacquer. Got Air is described as a “a holo russet colored base with a mix of copper micro flakes and bronze glass fleck pigments.” This polish is intensely gorgeous under all different lighting and was completely opaque in 2 easy coats!

Next up is One Breath At A Time by PoSHlish. One Breath At A Time is described as “a soft sage green pearl with scattered peach holo.” PoSHlish is another new to me brand and I am super in love with their thick wide brush! One Breath At A Time is on the sheer side but built up for me in 3 coats. I had a little bit of settling of the holographic glitter but nothing a good shake wouldn’t take care of! I love that this is kind of an “old school” hospital scrub color with something beautiful added in.

Next up is F*ck Cancer from Darling Diva Polish. F*ck Cancer is described as a “medium teal base with pink to gold shimmer color shifting flakes and a sprinkle of holo sparkle.” This was another really great formula, I am totally in love with the combination of UCC flakies, pink shimmer, and that teal jelly base! This was right on the edge of being opaque for me at 3 coats.

Lastly today I have You’re Stronger Than You Know from Night Owl Lacquer. You’re Stronger Than You Know is described as a “a dark plum with gold shimmer and violet and gold micro flakies.” This gorgeous vampy shade was completely opaque for me in 2 coats and there is so much depth within the flakies in this polish!

  1. Such a beautiful box! I’ve lost several family members to lung cancer, and I need to see if I can find polish funds for this box.
