What's In-die Box October 2013 - Little Box of Horrors

Hey all,

I know this is stupidly late, but what the hell haha at least I'm not spoiling the box for anyone :P

What's In-die Box is an Aussie Indie collaboration subscription box started up in June 2013 by a few of the Aussie brands as a way of making and selling all new release polish around a monthly theme! Some of them may even be exclusives or limited editions, so there is no way of doubling up and getting something you already own! You get 5 Aussie Indie polishes for $47.99 + postage and yes it is available internationally!

Octobers box was aptly named The Little Box of Horrors for Halloween and I knew I needed to order it! This months box included polishes made by Lilypad Lacquer, Miss Ashleigh, Arcane Lacquer, Peita's Polish and Glam Polish.

First up, Glam Polish Corpse Bride, a white crelly filled with silver, blue and black hex glitter with some pink skull and crossbone glitter. I did 2 coats over 1 coat Sally Hansen White On, with 1 layer of top coat.

Next is Arcane Lacquer Allhallows Eve. A black jelly with multi coloured glitter. This one needs undies so photos are 2 coats over 1 coat Ulta3 Black Satin with top coat.

Peita's Polish Monster Mash is a clear based glitter topper filled with orange, purple and black glitter with black stars and a holo glitter shimmer. Unfortunately I didn't get any stars in my swatch as I didn't know they where in there until I looked at my macro shot on the computer! Sneaky buggers. Photos show 1 coat over 2 coats Revlon Royal with top coat.

My first Miss Ashleigh Where My Witches At?. A deep purple jelly filled with way to many different glitters to try and mention. This one took 3 coats to reach opacity, but boy is it worth it, so squishy!

And lastly Lilypad Lacquer Queen of Halloween. A lovely red toned purple holo. The holo looks quite strong in the bottle but unfortunately not so much on the nail, not really a bad thing as the base colour is so lovely. Reminds me a touch of OPI DS Extravagance. This was a 1 coater, amazing!

Overall, I quite liked this box and it was a special treat as I normally don't like buying polish I do not know what it looks like. I may repurchace one again in the future if there is another theme that catches my interest.
