Summer’s Last Hurrah Indie Box Swatches, Review & Reveal

Press Sample

It’s just indie love week over here! I received 2 incredible indie packed boxes to share on my blog. Right now I’ll be showing you the Summer’s Last Hurrah Box!

Summer’s Last Hurrah is a box created with 10 “up and coming” indies. All 10 makers involved in this box launched less than a year ago, so this is a fabulous way to sample 10 fairly new brands. If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know I work with a LOT of indies and absolutely love it. Within this box of 10 up and comers, I’ve only worked with 2 of them – so I discovered 8 new brands myself.

Most of the brands also contributed an extra “goodie” to the package so you get more than just these 10 beautiful polishes. I do have a photo towards the bottom of the extra goodies, but when I received them they weren’t 100% set in stone – so your extras may differ just slightly from mine.

Let’s take a look at this fabulous box, then read at the bottom for purchasing information.

Turtle Tootsie Polishes Air Clearance

Turtle Tootsie Air Clearance

Turtle Tootsie contributed Air Clearance to this lovely box! Air Clearance is a lovely aqua blue with a nice teal shimmer that glows as well as a beautiful, subtle scattered holographic effect. I used 2 easy coats for these photos and a glossy top coat.

Frenzy Polish Seafoam

Frenzy Polish Seafoam

Frenzy Polish is a brand that has been featured on my blog a couple times now! I believe I started reviewing her brand on her second release back in April.

Frenzy Polish contributed Seafoam to this box. Seafoam is a lightly textured polish designed to be worn without a top coat. This is a seafoam green matte base with white, yellow gold, turquoise and navy blue glitters mixed in. I used 2 coats for these photos.

Here are the extras that arrived in my box! From candies to nail art to nail care.. and even a candle and some jewelry! As I said before, a few of these items might change from my box to your box – but overall this will be about the same.

oh, sorry, you can delete this after…there are more than 50 boxes available…I read that and was like, oh, well then it must be sold out already. But it seems that the first 50 sold from the pre-sale will just be shipped out earlier than the rest.

Oh no problem – I’ll add that in. In my email it said 50 – so thank you for the extra info!
