A Box, Indied: February 2016 - Diamonds are Worthless - Love a Holo!

Press Sample 
*These products are Cruelty Free 

Hi guys!

I hope everyone is surviving the weather! Only got 6 inches here and now the sun is out. But I think we here in the Midwest maybe shouldn't have given the storm a Redbull before we sent it East. Oops!

Well today I have the February A Box Indied polishes to show you and I'm pretty excited about this box because I love all 5 of them! Which means I have a lot of photos.

February 2016 A Box, Indied
Diamonds are Worthless - Love a Holo!

I used two coats of all 5 of these and one coat of top coat for all photos. Sun, shade and artificial lighting photos.


KBShimmer I Want Your Texts - *giggle* This one is so complex. I'm not sure what all is in there but it's a black-based creamy polish with tons of either copper or golden shimmer giving it an overall brownish look - with a nice holo and my favorite part, the violet pink micro-flakes!


Girly Bits A Real Gem - this one is a sparkly aqua blue with an in your face holo and almost a metallic look.


Crowstoes Keep It Simple, CUPID! - this one is a violet orchid magenta pink with stunning holo and micro-flakes.


Colors by Llarowe Coral-dly Yours - this one is a very pink-leaning coral with a more subtle holo and tons of shimmer. Cream formula.

This is the best representation of the color with the coral showing more.


Black Cat Lacquer I Want You to Want Me - this one is a violet blurple. It's most represented as far as color by the first photo because my camera kept wanting to make it more blue than it was. It's a crelly that is jam-packed with flakes and scattered holo!


This box launches for pre-order at Llarowe on February 1st and the pre-order will remain open through February 4th so that everyone has a chance to order.

The price will still be $50 and the free shipping for the US is still in effect on the Llarowe site.

Because this is essentially a maker collaboration box, like before, and not specifically a Llarowe product, rewards points will not be accrued for ABI. Please remember this ships from a different location so it must be ordered separately from any other items. Shipping will begin on or about the 15th.

There is no limit on how many boxes you can order.

5 random $25 GCs each month!

We are working on the packaging and hope to have something for the February box!

  1. LOVING this box!! Beautiful swatches as always Sheila xo

  2. Beautiful swatches Sheila! I am really loving that Girly Bits Blue. Right up my alley. Totally unrelated, but I wanted to tell you that I just received the newest Chanel nail polish from the Sunrise Collection, it's called Sunrise Trip. It's such a beautiful purple, gloss like finish. I don't know why but I thought of you immediately when I got it. Must be the purple thing. :) You may have gotten it already but wanted to let you know that I think you need this in your life!

  3. Love your swatches but there are nothing in that box that really makes me want to buy it. The only one I really, really want is the KB Shimmer polish.

  4. Gorgeous swatches! I think this will have to be my first A Box, Indied. The Black Cat Lacquer is my favorite :D

  5. I tend to stick to pink/lavender, but husband says he likes the light blue one better! Ha, I may have to try it!!
