So, today I have a review and swatches of the Pretty and Polished February Beauty Box.
Pretty and Polished did some spoilers on their Facebook page which inspired me to buy this box. I am a sucker for thermals and pinks and purples so I was all over this. I purchased the box on Jan 16th and paid $37 CDN for $30 USD (ouch!). It shipped Jan 28th and I received it on Feb 6th.
This first polish is by far my favourite: Sweet Tooth. It is a cold thermal that is white when warm and pink when cold.
The second is My Dark Valentine and is a black jelly with purple and red glitter with dark purple microglitter. It is really pretty but I’m going to try layering it over a black polish to see if I can get it to pop more. This was a little underwhelming by itself.
Last and definitely not least, is Forget-Me-Not, a clear glitter topper with large silver circles, medium lilac hexes and silver and dark purple microglitter. This was really great glitter but you needed to do some fishing for the hexes and large circles. I show it here layered over Julep’s Brandis.
I am really loving all three of these polishes. I hardly ever wear brand new polishes right away and these were exciting enough to try all of them over the weekend. That being said, until the Canadian dollar is more on par with the American dollar, I will probably be holding off purchasing any more. Almost $40 for three polishes and some candy is a little more than I can justify (my cheapskate is rearing her head again, lol).
Sadly this box is no longer available but check out Pretty and Polished for more great glitters, thermals and jellies or to pick up the March Beauty Box. Happy Shopping!
