Awesome Sauce Indie Box: Heroes vs Villians

*Press Sample*

It's time to choose a side! Are you a Hero or a Villain? That's the theme of this edition of the Awesome Sauce Indie Box! This collaboration box is filled with some, well Awesome stuff! 

This month the curators at Awesome Sauce are Featuring a Magnetic polish from Parrot Polish a stunning Glitter Topper from Takko and each box will include one of 4 different stamping plates supplied by Beautyometry! Grab this before it gets away!

Ever After Polish ~ Raven   
Inspired by Mystique this polish is a deep blue with multi color shifting flakes and loaded with sparkle it pairs well with the included matter top coat.  Use 2-3 coats depending on your application style. This applied like a dream and it sparkles in the sunlight! My favorite from the box.

Raven with Ever After Matte Topcoat

Anonymous Lacquer ~ Ms. Ivy League
Inspired by Poison ivy this is a deep green scattered holo w/ red micro holo glitter. While this looked more sheer on the swatch wheel it covered fantastic in 2 coats.

Anonymous also includes a Cuticle Oil in the box made with Jojoba Cuticle oil with cucumber melon, jojoba oil, grapeseed oil, coconut oil and fragrance.

Parrot Polish~Magneto 
Magneto throughout the years had many costumes. Most were black to purple pink. Always deep and rich colors to show his villainous evil side.  Parrot Polish also included a soap in the box.

This is a magnetic polish, which means that you can use a magnet to pull the purple magnetic pigments to make a sort of design.  I honestly didn't know what I was doing so I'm showing you swatches un-magnetized. 

Holo in the Sunlight
Takko Lacquer ~ Cruella
A gorgeous top coat loaded with gold flakes and white and black matte speckles inspired by Cruella DeVille. 

I've never snagged a Takko Lacquer before because they seem to sell out SO FAST any time there is a launch. Now I see why! I'm showing Cruella as a glitter topper over the Lavish Polish in the box but you could build this and wear it on its own as well.  I love this topper, its my second favorite thing in the box!

Lavish Polish~Daddy's Little Monster 
Inspired by the original Harley Quinn it has a black jelly base with red and gold small and micro holo glitters. This polish looks really amazing in the bottle, as it almost looks like the glitters don't want to mix in.  But it applies really flawlessly and the back base still allows you to see the glitters.  This is my first Lavish Polish and I definitely want to try more!

Last but certainly not least included is a MoYou London stamping plate and nail file from Beautometry.  Beautometry is an amazing stockist of polishes, stamping plates and nail art supplies from all over the world. In addition to the nail file they are also contributing one of four MoYou London plates specially selected for the box!   I haven't had a chance to play with this plate yet but I have some fun ideas that I'm working on! So Stay Tuned!  

If you haven't tried MoYou London plates before, they are fabulous! Very high quality with crisp designs.

The Heros vs Villans Awesome Sauce Box is available for preorder until August 10th over at

The box is available in two sizes as well.  The mini box is $35.00 and the Full size is $55.00.  I showed you the mini box here today but did have a full size of both the Ever After and the Takko polish.  This box really is a great value at either size.

This is my first Awesome Sauce Box and I know it won't be my last.  I'm still kicking myself for not buying the last one that was Cake themed! You live, you learn I guess. Tell me what you think of these colors! Any of your favorite Heroes or Villains featured? If you were going to theme a polish on a character, who would it be? I'd love to see one based on the new Wonder Woman! I'd love to hear from you!
