Happy Friday!! Who is ready for the weekend? It always sounds weird to say that on a Friday because the "weekend" in this house is Tuesday & Wednesday. Since it was not my weekend, I spent my night getting this post ready for you :) LevelUP Lacquer's The Guardians Box! Get comfortable because there are tons of pics. If you haven't seen it yet, you can see my un-boxing first impressions HERE. This box has 3 full sized limited edition polishes, a mani bomb with a special scent created just for this box, a magnet with all of the characters from Guardians of the Galaxy, and lastly the cutest thing ever. I'm sorry, what I meant to say there at the end is a Baby Groot keychain. The price is $30 + free shipping in the U.S. I promise you it's worth it. Let's take a look!
|The Guardians Box|
|Here is the magnet! I put this on my helmer so fast lol!|
|Here is Baby Groot!!!! He lives on my tripod so we can always "hang out". I know... I'm not funny|
For the life of me I could not put my finger on the scent of this mani bomb! Thankfully, I was told exactly what it is! It is a custom Gamora scent that consists of Dragon's Blood, Sandalwood, and White Rose. I NEVER would have gotten that. It is really hard to explain, but it is soothing. I have not used it yet but as soon as I do, I will share a video on IG. For now, here are some pics of the mani bomb, the packaging, and the directions and ingredients. This mani bomb is brought to you by Ship of the Line Salts & Soaps. Please make sure to check out this shop as well!!
Now for the polish. First up is We Are Groot. This one is a warm toned brownish color with tons of iridescent glitters. So much so, that it was a tiny bit chunky. I said in my un-boxing video that I was not sure how I felt about this one. It's really just my color preference. If you are a brown lover than you will need this! It is unique and very pretty. I have never seen a base quite like this. You can't see it from a distance but wait for the macro. It's sandy. Not feeling, but looking. You'll see. For my swatch I used 2 coats plus top coat.
|Can you see the speckles?? So neat :)|
Second polish is Bunch Of A-Holes. This is a jelly polish filled with glitter and a subtle holo. I thought this was a flakie polish! Upon further inspection, I noticed the "flakies" were really glitter pieces. Almost like the little edges from already cut glitter. Know what I mean?? Again, you will have to see the macro! The color is also super pretty. It's a cross between cranberry and black cherry. I used 3 thin coats plus top coat.
|How funky is this?!?! Awesome effect!|
We finally made it to the last polish! This is the thermal in the bunch. I'm sure we all know by now how I feel about thermals... LOVE THEM!!!! This one is so regal. Is that the right word? I don't know. It's just so plush! Its like a fine flakie, metallic, foil polish that when cold is a mossy, hunter green and when warm, is an olivey, antiquey, gold. Let's not forget about the UCC Flakies! Seriously stunning. Reminds me of royalty and Mardi Gras lol! I used 3 coats for my swatch with top coat.
Do you love it?? You definitely will never see a set of polish quite like this ever again. Each one unique in it's own way. Fun fact: My grandmother collected keychains and she passed that love down to me. This Baby Groot keychain hit my heart a little <3 Do not pass up this box! Keep an eye on my IG feed. I will be sharing swatch videos later today. As always, links below. Thanks for stopping by :) I hope you all have a lovely weekend!!
