Hey guys! Today I have a super special swatch and review for the Monthly Polish Awareness Box for the month of April benefiting the Autism Research Institue. This box will retail for $52.00 plus shipping or these polishes will be available individually for $11. 10% of each purchase will be donated to further Autism research, I did purchase this box with a blogger’s discount and I am so honored to be sharing these 6 lovely polishes with you today! These polishes are available right now through April 9th, 2017.

First up is “All Over the Spectrum” by All Mixed Up Lacquers. This polish is described as a ” light grey scattered holographic base with green, pink, purple, blue micro flakies and small to medium pink, green, purple, red, orange, turquoise and blue holographic glitter.” This is a crelly type formula absolutely full of glitters on a light grey base. It built up beautifully opaquefor me in 3 coats.

Next up is “Kiss My Aspergers” by Sassy Pants Polish.  This polish is described as a “very sparkly red jelly with red micro-glitters and red-gold micro flakies.” This polish is a super juicy jelly type formula that built up right to the edge of being opaque for me in 3 coats.

Next is “Something Mysterious” from Pretty Beautiful Unlimited.  This polish is described as a “yellow [polish] with pink to purple to blue to gold UCC flakies, gold holo shreds, red shimmer and chameleon glitters in various sizes.” This is such a unique crelly mix! I did have great coverage at 2 coats but opted for a 3rd for my swatches today. This polish does dry down a little textured but a good topcoat will smooth it right out.

Next is “Loving Patience” from Night Owl Lacquer. This polish is described as a “seafoam green with bright turquoise shimmer, crystal rainbow shifting flakies and some scattered holographic.” This is such a delicate polish, I did need 3 coats for full opacity but the finish is just stunning!

Next is “Love Needs No Words” by Lifestyle Lacquer. This polish is described as a “duochrome that shifts between shades of blue and violet with a hint of scattered holo pigment.” The formula on this polish is amazing! 2 coats is all that I needed for this super flashy polish, I did have some brushstrokes but I totally don’t mind them!

Lastly today I have “Close To Home” by My Indie Polish. This polish is described as a “purple cream with a great pink/violet [shimmer] and hidden holo.” This polish has that beautiful “lit from within” type shimmer and built up nicely for me in 3 coats. It almost felt like a crelly type formula during application!
