Indie-Galactic Box Swatches and Review

Are you feeling spaced out? Want some amazing indie nail polish, nail art materials, and cuticle care? The Indie-Galactic Box is made for you! This space-themed box, featuring Anonymous Lacquer, CDB Lacquer, Ever After Polish, Lou It Yourself, and Supernatural Lacquer launches on Friday, June 17 at 9PM EDT, and is limited to 50 boxes. I sure had a ton of fun with box - let's stare off int the stars...

First, let's have a look at the extras! There is an awesome Indie-Galactic Box sticker for your Helmer, notebook, or planner, as well as iridescent glass star jewels, celestial-themed vinyls, cuticle crelly, oil, and balm. The crelly and oils from Ever After Polish have an Intergalactic Space Ranger scent, which is a tart, white floral. The Anonymous Lacquer balm has a soft lavender/floral scent. All are nicely moisturizing and smooth.

 Now let's look at the polishes! Anonymous Lacquer Star Light, Star Bright is a black polish with multi-colored shimmer and clear holographic microglitter. Wow, does this sparkle! It is also super-opaque, and could be a one-coater for many folks, though I am showing it here with two. It does dry ever so slightly textured due to the glitter, but top coat smooths it out.

CDB Lacquer Cosmic Escape has gold, silver, and a rainbow of holographic glitters, as well as turquoise shimmer, in a midnight blue jelly base. Though it has a delicious, squishy effect, it is quite opaque and is worn her in two thin coats. It has a nice, quick-drying formula and spreads nicely. It is textured, due to the microglitter, but two coats of top coat should smooth it out. I love the glow the shimmer provides!

Ever After Polish 1000 Light Years is a dark magenta scattered holo with blue-to-magenta duochrome microflakes, blue-to-purple chrome flakes, and red and purple holo microglitter. This is another complex gem from the brand, and it has a great, quick-drying formula with lots of complexity. It does have texture, but is easily smoothed out with top coat. It is shown here in three thin coats, but two would do.

Lou It Yourself Why So Sirius? is a pale lavender jelly with blue and pink microflakes and shimmer that shift to magenta and gold. It is shown here in four thin coats, but two or three coats would be enough for most. Nice, quick dry time.

Supernatural Lacquer Helio-Sphere is a silver linear holo with magenta-to-green multichrome flakes and copper-to-green shimmer. This polish has a burnished metal antique effect and shifts really dramatically in the light, transforming before your eyes. It is opaque on its own, but is shown here with three thin coats and a top coat.

Let's check out some nail art! Here I used the iridescent glass stars with Anonymous Lacquer Star Light, Star Bright. I recommend nail glue with these for a secure hold.

I did a petal water marble on one nail with Anonymous Lacquer Star Light, Star Bright, Lou It Yourself Why so Sirius?, and Supernatural Lacquer Helio Sphere. Since these are flake and shimmer-heavy polishes, they weren't the easiest to water marble, but you can definitely do it! I really loved the effect.

Finally, I tried the Lou It Yourself vinyls with Supernatural Lacquer Helio Sphere as the background and Anonymous Lacquer Star Light, Star Bright as the detail, since it is so opaque. I love how this looks like reversed space images!
