Crème à la Mode Quarterly Box: Winter 2015 - Swatches and Review

Press Sample 
*These products are Cruelty Free 

Crème à la Mode Box - Winter 2015

The Crème à la Mode Box is a quarterly box and this is the 2nd one! You can see the first Box here. And as you may know or at least have guessed - the creme lover in me is doing a snoopy dance.

This box launches for PRE-ORDER starting November 15th at 9 am and the pre-order goes through November 21st. Boxes are expected to start shipping to fill all pre-orders by December 1, 2015.

These boxes will retail for the low price of $26 plus shipping, so in the US the total will come to under $30. ($26 is $6.50 each!) After the boxes are shipped, they will offer the polishes at full price in their respective shops, as well.

The makers in the Crème à la Mode Box are:
Literary Lacquers
Octopus Party Nail Lacquer
Digital Nails
Indigo Bananas

Swatches and review after the jump!

Digital Nails - Arboreal - This one is a cool-toned green with quite a bit of blue. I guess that would make it a green-leaning teal? Whatever color it is, the formula is like buttah! Smooth and creamy and dries to a glossy hight shine. I used 3 light coats and one coat of top coat.


Literary Lacquers - Breathing Dreams Like Air - This one is right smack between a purple and a grey. Is there a word for that already? Like grey and beige is greige. If not there should be. Like grurple? At any rate, it's that perfect smoky greyed-out purple. My skin tone pulls out the grey for sure. You can have a look at Jedi Wife's swatches here to see how her skin tone pulls the purple more. This one was opaque in 2 coats and I used one coat of top coat. No issues.


Octopus Party-Malibu Stacy's Mom - Can I just say I sighed with relief that this isn't pretending to be anything but PINK - not a crelly, not a neon a nice, bright white-based PINK. This was 2 coats with one coat of top coat and I had no issues at all with the formula or application.


Indigo Bananas - Scarlet Night - This one is a deep oxblood red creme. Just a bit more brown-leaning than say, a lipstick red. Sultry! This one was a tad thinner than the others so I used 3 thin coats for opacity. Wipe the brush so you don't flood the cuticles! No issues though. One coat of top coat.


I haven't had much time yet to play around - but I did do a few quick, fun manis...


What do you think? Favorites?

You can pre-order these from the Crème à la Mode Big Cartel shop here, again, starting November 15th through the 21st. $26.00 for all 4 polishes. Shipping to commence on or about December 1, 2015. It will be a quarterly box and after all pre-orders are shipped, each maker will sell their own polish in their shop at full retail.

You can also find them on Facebook here for more information and swatch photos as they become available.
