March 2016 Magic 8 Box | 80’s Love Songs

Press Sample of March 2016
Magic 8 Box | 80’s Love Songs

I have a few posts to do today! This week is a busy launch week for a lot of shops and I didn’t realize how many landed on the same day, plus some came in just a few days ago – so I spent a large chunk of yesterday getting them all photographed. First up today we have the March 2016 Magic 8 Box which has an 80’s Love Songs theme.

The Magic 8 Box March 2016 Collage

Here’s the breakdown for the Magic 8 Box (if you are new to it): 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 March the guest brands are Delush Polish, Aliquid Lacquer, Pipe Dream Polish and Native War Paints.

The March 2016 theme is 80’s Love Songs (YES!!) and after seeing some of the names, I had to pull up some songs to listen to while swatching.

Let’s jump in, and all purchasing info will be located at the bottom of the post.

Philly Loves Lacquer – This Much Is True-oo

Philly Loves Lacquer drew inspiration from the song True by Spandau Ballet. This Much Is True-oo is a deep grey crelly base with ultra chrome flakes and gold flakes mixed in. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
