Hey y’all! Today I have the January Monthly Awareness Polish Box available here December 26th- January 5th for preorder. This is a box released monthly which donates proceeds to a different cause each month! This month 6 awesome makers have come together to donate 10% of each purchase towards www.alz.org to further fund research and care for those living with Alzheimer’s. Polishes in this box will retail for $11.00 for individuals, $40.00 for 4, or all 6 for $52.00 plus shipping of $6.80. I did purchase this box with a blogger’s discount and I’ll jump into these amazing, heartfelt shades!

First up is Loving Hand by Sassy Pants Polish. Loving Hand is described as a “cranberry scattered holo with shimmer and garnet and pink berry hex glitters.” This polish is inspired by the 4th stage of Alzheimer’s and had a really nice 2 coat formula. I love how deep the base is and how it shimmers in natural sunlight.

Next up is Fleeting Memories by Alter Ego Body Care Products. Fleeting Memories is described as an “orange with subtle shifts of yellow, green & blue.” This shade had a great formula that was opaque for me in 3 coats, it was a little bit brushstrokey but oh my gosh at that shimmer!

Next up is I’ll Remember For The Both Of Us by Pretty Beautiful Unlimited. I’ll Remember For The Both Of Us is a surprise thermal with a super gorgeous subtle shift that was completely opaque for me in 2 coats. It has a seafoam green base filled with iridescent and silver flakies that will shift a bit in hue under different lighting.

Next up is I’ve Got This by All Mixed Up Lacquers, described as a “medium to dark blue crelly/jelly with gold and turquoise holograhic glitter, purple, green, and blue matte glitter of all sizes, and fine silver holo sparkle.” This looks like a mermaid jelly sandwich in a bottle! The teal leaning base built up completely opaque for me in 2 thicker coats and dried down to semi matte finish.

Next is Courage by Darling Diva Polish, a beautiful polish with blue periwinkle base with purple shift, a strong linear holographic glitter, as well as scattered glitters. Courage has a perfect 2 coat long lasting formula, the shimmer is subtle in this one but plays so nicely with the holographic glitter.

Lastly today I have #EndAlz by PoSHlish. #EndAlz is described as a “rich vibrant purple filled with copious amount of silver holographic micro glitter.” This is such an amazing deep vibrant shade that had amazing coverage at 1 thicker coat but was completely opaque for me in 2. #EndAlz dried down to a really pretty matte with the holographic glitters rising to the surface making a textured finish. One nice coat glosses and smoothes it all out no problem, though I love it both ways!
