Happy Saturday! I was planning on having this Talk Indie To Me Box August 2019 post up yesterday, but a series of events stunted my productivity. I left work to take Jacob and his friend Collin to another friends house for a birthday party and sleepover. They were doing an escape room thing. So I drove them over and headed home. It was going to be a night filled with post typing and swatching, so I grabbed a venti iced Americano from Starbucks to keep me peppy for a few hours.
At 7:15 I realized I ran out of cotton balls. Dammit. I can improvise, we have like a years worth of paper towels here to make do. Then at about 8:15… an ottlite bulb burns out. Noooooo. So I frantically ask Nichole of Bedlam Beauty if Joann’s carries them in store. I usually buy them off Amazon, but Amazon can’t get the bulbs to me until August 24th. She said they most likely do, but I have an older model bulb so call first. It’s already pushing 8:25 so I run to Joann’s (without calling, living on prayers here) and run in at 8:35 and they HAVE THEM! $49.99 for each (I wanted to replace both, cause if one just blew, the other isn’t far behind) and ouch.
Then I’m like “Hmm do you have cotton balls?” they send me to the craft pom pom section.. but there is a felt display next to the pom poms, and those work – so I bought 4 sheets of felt to use as cotton balls. Score. When I went to pay, I reach into my purse and feel bubble wrap. It’s a polish I received last month for Polish Pickup and forgot about. Double Score (or triple?) and everything is right in the world again. Now I have my new bulbs, felt for polish removal and a polish I forgot I received.
By the time I got home though, I was tired and did some swatching and called it a night around 11pm. So here we are, bright and bushy tailed on a Saturday. Laundry going, groceries are due to be delivered any moment… and I’m typing posts. Jacob texted asking if they can stay at his birthday buddies house until 5pm (was supposed to pick up around noon) so I have a quiet day ahead of me.
Inspiration for the August 2019 Talk Indie To Me Box is Angry Birds! This month Night Owl Lacquer joins Necessary Evil and Zombie Claw to make this box come together.
I’ve already typed a short novel, so let’s jump into the swatches.
Zombie Claw Polish | Bomb
Bomb is a black jelly base loaded with red to gold to mauve to orange to yellow micro flecks and a touch of scattered holographic micro glitters. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Necessary Evil Polish | Look Into My Eyebrows
Look Into My Eyebrows is a warm red jelly based scattered holographic with black microglitters and thick black bar glitters. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos. This shade is slightly deeper in person, the jelly base allowed light to pass through which makes it lighter in photos.
Night Owl Lacquer | Bad Piggies
Bad Piggies is a slightly muted bright lime green crelly with lime to green to teal ultrachrome chameleon flakes added in. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Talk Indie To Me Box | August 2019
All 3 polishes applied beautifully and I love how well they match their intended inspiration. Definitely one of the most on-point Talk Indie To Me Boxes I’ve reviewed!
