Tonight I have the December 2015 Magic 8 Box to share with you and the theme is Northern Lights. If Magic 8 Box doesn’t sound familiar, it’s formerly known as Beauty Quartet Box, but since it has expanded, a new name was in order.
Here’s the breakdown for the Magic 8 Box: it will contain products from 8 brands. 4 will be permanent brands (Philly Loves Lacquer, Smokey Mountain Lacquers, Rica and My Indie Polish) as well as 4 guest makers. For December the guest brands are Turtle Tootsie Polish, Frenzy Polish, Stardust Polish and Serum No 5.
The theme for December is “Northern Lights”. The makers wanted a whimsical, non-denominational winter theme, and what’s more magical than beautiful dancing lights across the night sky?
Let’s take a look!
Geomagnetic Storm by Philly Loves Lacquer
“Geomagnetic Storm” by Philly Loves Lacquer is a deep blackened plum with a green shift, silver holo micro shreds, tiny green and blue flakies, color shifting flakes and blue to aqua to violet ultra chameleon chrome flakes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos. The first 2 coats were a little thin and patchy in areas, but the third coat even it out nicely.
Magical Sky Show by Smokey Mountain Lacquers
“Magical Sky Show” by Smokey Mountain Lacquers is a deep teal blue creme with lime and aqua shimmer. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Interstellar by Rica
“Interstellar” by Rica is a navy blue holo with a combination of purple, green, light green and blue glitters, flakes and shimmer. I used 2 coats for these photos and a thick top coat. There is a slight texture to the polish because of all the glitters, so if your top coat is thinner you might need 2 coats of top coat for a completely smooth finish.
Cosmic Landscape by My Indie Polish
“Cosmic Landscape” by My Indie Polish is a deep green with a gold shift, gold shimmer and a light sprinkling of holo sparks. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Night Magic by Turtle Tootsie Polishes
“Night Magic” by Turtle Tootsie Polishes – a deep blue holo with light blue sheen. The light blue sheen really makes this polish glow. It’s stunning. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos. Light brush strokes are visible with application.
Magnetic Midnight by Frenzy Polish
“Magnetic Midnight” by Frenzy Polish is a dark green holo with purple flakes and green shimmer. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Night Blaze by Serum No 5
“Night Blaze” by Serum No.5 is a glow in the dark glitter bomb filled with mini stars, purple, pink, blue, and orange glitters in an iridescent like pink base. It glows a bright blue in the dark. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Solar Flare by Stardust Polish
I saved one of my favorites for last. This is just a ‘me’ color! “Solar Flare” by Stardust Polish is a red toned purple linear holo with copper shimmer. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
