Glitter Guilty Pleasure Box – May 2016

16 May

Press Sample

Good afternoon!  I hope you all had a lovely weekend.  We had nothing but gorgeous weather with tons of sunshine.  This gorgeous weather gave me a great opportunity to open up the windows and enjoy the lovely temps while working on swatches.  Along with this lovely weather, I had a tasty treat to munch on thanks to Glitter Guilty.  Let’s take a look at this month’s Pleasure Box from Glitter Guilty that was just perfect for Mother’s Day.

First up we will look at my full size lacquer for the month.  R&R is a lovely golden bronze shimmer with pink micro glitter.  Application and dry times were perfect, and I had little streaking in the shimmer base.  In my photos I am wearing three coats of R&R and one coat of clear.

Now for the monthly mini.  White Sands is a gorgeous pale nude blend with a golden shimmer.  I was surprised by how much I ended up loving this lacquer!  While it is a bit sheer, it is still stunning.  In my photos I am wearing four coats of White Sands.

So what do you think of this month’s Glitter Guilty Pleasure Box?  Loved the lacquers, the added hair ties are my weakness, and the chocolate was the perfect sweet tooth fix.  Be sure to check out all the amazing lacquers Glitter Guilty has to offer, along with the awesome monthly Pleasure Box subscription service.  Thank you so much for stopping by today and I will see you all again tomorrow.

    These aren’t really to my taste but the shimmer is pretty.

      I really did enjoy White Sands. I think it will be beautiful as a base for some stamping. <3

    Such intriguing colors. I have never seen the Glitter Guilty Pleasure Box but I totally think I need to try it.

    Interesting polishes! Not my cup of tea but I still like the idea of a box.

      That is one nice part about the subscriptions service. You fill out a likes/dislikes section to help ensure you get lacquers you will like. <3

    These are really pretty. I don’t usually like shimmery-based polishes with glitter, but R&R is really catching my eye!!

    • Nina May 17, 2016 at 9:41 PM #

      It is certainly unique! <3

    that yellowish one needs to be matte. I bet it is fabulous matted.

    Not a huge fan of the frosty like finish, but the colors are pretty!

    • Nina May 18, 2016 at 7:21 AM #

      I’m in the same boat as you when it comes to frosty finishes, but White Sands found its way to my heart.

    Love the bronze! And that it came with hair ties!

      I’m a hair tie junkie, or as my cats call them….toys!

    I don’t think I’d ever wear these shades, but they are pretty swatches.

    Love your nails — the shape is NICE! My nails have a mind of their own and oftentimes I don’t have time to train them, lol 😛

    • Nina May 18, 2016 at 7:26 AM #

      Awwww!!! Thank you!!! I’ve been rocking this shape for more than 20 years so they are pretty well trained.

    Nice box. I wish you could pick a shade every month ☺

      You can build a likes/dislikes profile so that does help ensure the likely hood of you liking the lacquers you receive. <3
