Hello there! I hope January has been treating you well. As long as you don’t think of the month as a never relenting Monday, you’ll be fine! I’ll be showing you four exclusive polishes from the Winter 2019 edition of the Seasonal Indie Box. This box is already up for preorder and I’d like to show you the goodies ASAP! I’ll give you the quick and dirty on how the box works then we’ll set off to ogle!
Seasonal Indie Box – Winter 2019
The Seasonal Indie Box is just as it sounds. It is released quarterly in celebration of each season. The box features three permanent makers: Taryn of Anchor & Heart, Carolina of Colores de Carol and Chrissy of Turtle Tootsie Polishes. Each season, another indie maker is invited to create a polish to add to the box. This month’s guest maker is Mary of Quixotic Polish. Winter has come!
Anchor & Heart – Frozen Mountain Dawn
Taryn’s Frozen Mountain Dawn starts off in a warm dark beige base and is speckled with pink, grey, and navy blue glitters and a complementary pink shimmer. The shade is demure with the larger pink glitters adding lovely pops of interest. It’s so cozy! The crelly consistency leans a little thinner than medium, but this works well for the other elements to come through. It’s pretty glossy on its own but I’m wearing three coats with a glossy topcoat.

Colores de Carol – Peaceful
Peaceful is such a sweet one. The base is a blushing pink filled with red holographic micro flakes, sparkling pink holographic micro shreds, and lively gold shimmer. Along with the pops of red from the micro glitters, the gold shimmer here really gives this a punch. The polish applies smoothly and with ease leaving a bit of texture from the glitters. I’m wearing two coats with a glossy topcoat.
Turtle Tootsie Polishes – Blustery Day
Chrissy created a beautiful thermal for this season. Blustery Day, when cool is a silvery gray-green and subtly moves to rosy peach when warm. In both states, gold holographic flakes and a gold shimmer can be noted. As both shades are on the subdued, delicate side, the thermal shift itself is also on the subtle side. I’m wearing two coats with a glossy topcoat.

Quixotic Polish – Storm Watch
Storm Watch is the showiest one of the bunch. This is a bold teal holographic base, bristling with iridescent flakes that shift blue to green and purple to red, as well as holographic micro flakes. It’s so damn sparkly! The intensity builds quickly while still allowing all the flakes to show. Storm Watch dries leaving a bit of texture which is expected considering all the flakes. I’m wearing two coats with a glossy topcoat.

How fun are those polishes!? I had no issues with them and enjoy the mix of colors.
