Hey everyone! Hope you're all having great weeks. Now I try my best to shy away from sharing things that aren't available anymore, but these beauties were just too pretty to keep to myself.
This is the September For the Love of Polish Box! I'm not typically a big box buyer, but these Pumpkin Patch-themed colors were just to gorgeous to pass up. This is a three-brand box with Illyrian Polish and Polished for Days as the main two brands, with a featured guest brand each month. This month it was Ever After Polish, and I'm not going to lie, that polish is a HUGE contributor on why I hit the purchase button – but I'm over the moon thrilled with the other two colors. And the whole box was $31.50 after shipping – for three gorgeous polishes I think that is a steal.
I also like this box has a rotating brand, and while I've tried this one, it gives me the opportunity to try a new brand every now and again. Polished for Days is a new to me brand, so I was excited to try one of her polishes and find out she is located near me (Santa Cruz, woot!).
Let's get to the swatches shall we?
First up we have the beautiful Ever After Polish The Pumpkin King. This has a grey holographic base filled with red to copper to gold multichrome shifting flakies (which have to be my absolute favorite polish embellishment for fall! I believe there are also tiny teal holo microglitters in this beautiful complex mix of a polish. Despite it's light base, this was opaque in two easy coats, and was beautiful indoors and outside!
Next we have Illyrain Polish Fairytale Pumpkin. This is a complex color, sometimes it looks more green, sometimes brown. Very much like my hazel eyes! This is an olive green with a golden flash when it leans more green, and a green leaning log brown when it leans more brown. It is packed with holograhic pigment and brownish copper flakies – a complex stunner from Illyrian Polish which I'm coming to expect and LOVE. Opaque in two easy coats.
Last but not least we have Polished for Days Pulp Fiction. This is a gorgeous peach leaning bright orange jelly polish packed with holographic flakies and gorgeous green to golden shifting multichrome flakies. This polish rounds out the Pumpkin Patch themed box perfectly and totally makes me think of happy pumpkin patch picking. I'm totally going to break this one out when I hit up the Pumpkin Patch this year! This was opaque in two easy coats as well.
So unfortunately this was only available for preorder for a 48-hour period, but the October box is coming up soon (Oct. 7 to be exact)! It is Monster themed and the guest brand is Candied Apple Polish, another new-to-me brand. I'll definitely be checking it out (in fact I just saw a sneak peek on Illyrian IG account, eeeek!).
