Indie-pendence Day Box


*Press Sample*

If you have read the "About Me" section here at Polish & Plates you will note that I consider myself an American Patriot. Whats that mean? Well it means that I love my country, our flaws and all. 

So when Allison with le polish asked me if I'd be interested in reviewing a special 4th of July Collaboration box I jumped at the chance.  While le polish is still a "new to me brand" I was really impressed with the polish she had included in the recent Mini Indied Box (review here). I was also excited to hear the other brands that were included in the box, as they all are new(er) to me and each had stuck out to me in other collaboration boxes!

Indie-pendence Day Box
A patriotic-themed collaboration box including the following polishes and extras! Perfect for your 4th of July holidays and BBQ's and great to show your Team USA pride during the summer Olympics coming up!

So grab your stars and stripes and lets get started!

(LtoR) le polish, Sassy Pants Polish, Chirality, Anonymous Lacquer

Anonymous Lacquer:
Freedom Ring - A full sized red, white, and blue glitter topper with iridescent bling to give it a little something extra!  This is the perfect glitter topper for your forth of July nails! 

Tons of great glitter in Red, White and Blue that can be applied with the brush or sponged on. Looks great with Blanca (see below) and True Blue!

Blanca - A mini highly-pigmented, shiny white polish that is opaque in 1-2 coats depending on your application style. A perfect undie for Freedom Ring! 

I did have some issues with the consistency of this polish, namely that I had some 'dragging' if I went over an area that I had just applied (still wet). I recommend you allow each coat to dry before applying or going over again while wet.

Anonymous Lacquer Cuticle Balm - a smooth non-greasy balm in a light summery scent.

I love this cuticle balm. The consistency is great and its very effective! Great for on the go! 

It includes a lot of great ingredients too like Mango Butter, Coconut Oil, Bees Wax, Cocoa Butter, Jojoba Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Apricot Kern oil and Lemon/Orange oils.

Chirality Nail Lacquer: Roanoke - A light blue holographic polish with red glitters. Two coats for perfect coverage and it had a great formula!

I love this polish. This is my second Chirality polish and I must get more! The color on this is stunning and I love the little red glitters. I really don't have anything else like it.

Chirality also has thrown in some Toe Separators for all your summer pedi needs :)

le polish: This Hand Is My Hand - A red jelly with red, blue, and gold glitters and microflakes.  Application is great, very easy to apply and I used two coats. 

While its red it pulls a tad on the orange side of red. Like the Chirality polish its something I have nothing else like in my collection.  This is such a sunning color and you should see the sparkle in the sunshine!

Make a Wish Bracelet - le polish also included this adorable bracelet. Make a wish, tie it on, when it wears off, your wish will come true! A great summer memory!

Sassy Pants Polish: True Blue - A royal blue holographic shimmer polish. This rich and stunning blue is practically a one-coat wonder. I used two coats for these swatches. As a blue lover, this is a must have.  

Sassy Pants Polish Mani Bomb - a star-shaped mani bomb in Baked Apple Pie Scent and enriched in natural butters to soothe and condition hands, nails, and cuticles.  This scent is perfect for the patriotic themed box, because what’s more American than apple pie?
