All Mixed Up Lacquer – Cryptid Creature
What an exciting mix to open up with! Cryptid Creature has a fun purple base with scattered holographic, red shimmer, and a multitude of holographic, rainbow shifting, and matte glitters of different size and shape. The glitters lay well with the holographic ones showing off nicely in the jelly base. I’m wearing three coats with a glossy topcoat.
$9.00 // 50 Bottles Available
Atomic Polish – Quantum
Nuka Cola Quantum
Glow In The Dark
Quantum has a pale blue base filled with bright blue metallic micro flakes. It has a wicked bright aqua blue glow which can easily serve as your flashlight. The polish is on the thicker side but applies well and levels. I’m so impressed with how well it holds its glow! I also used it to stamp which continues to show it’s multi-utility. I’m wearing two coats with a glossy topcoat
$11.00 // 60 Bottles Available
Chirality – Anti-Deathclaw, Soften Your Tips
Amanda’s Soften Your Tips cuticle oil comes in the scent Anti-Deathclaw. This is a light floral matcha green tea swirling with wild berries, with a squeeze of citrus and a hint of musk. Personally, I get the fresh green of the tea with the fruity berries and slight weight of musk at the end. It’s a very fresh scent! The oil itself isn’t sticky or tacky and it comes in a doe foot applicator brush.
$9.00 // 60 tubes available
Color Spectrum Polish – Glowing Deathclaw
The Glowing Deathclaw
Glow in the Dark
From Shannon, we have Glowing Deathclaw. Key to its name, this beaut is a glow in the dark polish. Glowing Deathclaw has a deep emerald green jelly base with slight shifts of grey, green shimmer. When activated, it shows a neon green glow. The polish goes on with a sheer quality and builds nicely and smoothly. I did struggle to capture the glow. Maybe I didn’t shake my bottle well enough because you can see it like fairy dust in the bottle. However, I did pass this on to Lexi in case other swatchers had similar issues. I’m wearing three coats with a glossy topcoat.
$11.00 // 40 Bottles Available
Colores de Carol – Liberty Eyes
Carolina created this fresh and bright polish, Liberty Eyes. Liberty Eyes has a bright aqua crelly base with Aurora shimmer and blue iridescent glitter. I love how the shimmer shows up here. I had an issue with bit of either unmixed pigment or running glitter which I mentioned to Lexi. I’m wearing three coats with a glossy topcoat.
$11.00 // No Cap
Copacetic Cosmetics – Hold Up
Hold Up Vault Boy Meme
Hold Me has a yellow shimmery base with a soft turquoise shift. My lights did drown out a bit of the turquoise, but it’s there. The polish applies well, with a creamy feel and it doesn’t leave any brush strokes as I feared. I’m wearing three coats with a glossy topcoat.
$8.00 // 20 Bottles Available
Geekish Glitter Lacquer – I Have Been Baptized Twice, Once in Water, Once in Flame
Joshua Graham, The Burned Man, The Malpais Legate from the Honest Hearts DLC in Fallout New Vegas
How yummy is this color! Lexi’s polish has a radiant orange base with gold to yellow to red shifting shimmer and pink to violet to gold UCC flakes. It applies with ease and dries with slight shimmer. I’m wearing two coats with a glossy topcoat.
$10.00 // 50 Bottles Available
Jen & Berries – You’ll Never Live to See it
FO3 Garden of Eden Creation Kit
This is my introductory shade to Jen & Berries and it’s a wonderful way to start. You’ll Never Live to See it is described as green to blue multichrome, shows the lush, grassy transformation that the G.E.C.K. provides, while the inclusion of brown microflakes is a reminder of the desolate landscape of the past.
This vibrant multichrome applies smooth with the micro flakies adding a nice contrast. The intense colors shift easily with the slightest movement. I’m wearing three coats with a glossy topcoat.
Jewelry by RPF – Gray & Holo Glitter Necklace in Black or White Setting
Black & white photo of Fallout 4 opening cinematic intro
This piece of jewelry features a hand painted glass cabochon using a sparkly gray/silver nail polish with larger holographic glitter. It’s set in your choice of either a white or black wood setting and comes with an 18″ silver chain necklace with a lobster claw clasp. The necklace is fairly light and sits mid-low on the chest.
$12.00 // 6 Black Settings & 7 White Settings
Lollipop Posse Lacquer – Trashcan Carla
Trashcan Carla, Fallout 4
Inspired by Trashcan Carla, Karen created this incredibly shifty one.Trashcan Carla is a denim blue jelly based filled with red to green to gold shifting Aurora shimmer, holographic microflakes, and copper holographic microglitter. The polish applies nicely and dries down smooth. I’m wearing two coats with a glossy topcoat.
$12.00 // No Cap
Moon Shine Mani – Vault Boy
Vault Boy, the ironic mascot character of the Vault-Tec corporation within the Fallout universe
Phoebe created Vault Boy; a white crelly with a mix of crystal, holographic and metallic blue glitters and bright yellow matte glitters. Vault Boy applies with ease, leaving back a bit of bumpiness from the glitters. I found that the glitters were nicely dispersed when painted on. I’m wearing thin three coats with a glossy topcoat.
$12.00 // No Cap
Psyche Minerals – Muggers
Our makeup offering for the box comes in the from of this loose eye shadow. Muggers is described as a peachy pink eyeshadow with a subtle sparkle. It is also lip safe! It doesn’t show up very much on my skin tone but I’m sure this shade would be perfect for someone else out there!
$7.50 // No Cap
Red Eyed Lacquer – Take Me Home
Fallout 76-West Virginia
Bianca encourages your cleanliness with her hand sanitizer in the scent Take Me Home. The scent is described as an outdoor fresh woodsy pine scent with a hint of sweetness. I’m pretty fond of fresh, earthy scents and this one is up my alley. I’ve been under the weather for over a week now and having this hand sanitizer on my desk, I’ve reached for it constantly. I found it very moisturizing, not tacky, and the liquid evaporates quickly.
$5.00 // 15 Tubes Available
Sassy Cats Lacquer – Nuka Punch Quick Dry Top Coat & Basecoat Duo
Mohrayma supplied a top and basecoat duo for this box in the scent Nuka Punch. Nuka Punch features fruity blend of pineapple, papaya, guava, orange, apple, apricot and passion fruit. The scent is not overpowering and lingers a while. I did swatch the base coat to allow you to see the kind of coverage it gives you. It’s only slightly milky and is smoothing.
I used the topcoat in all 14 polishes featured in this box and I had no issues with bubbling, shrinking or it not drying quick enough for photos. I also did some stamping to see how the topcoat dealt with black stamping polish and I had no issues there.
$12.00 // No Cap
Sassy Shark Charms – Drinks Anyone?
Nuka Cola Bottle Cap
The Drinks Anyone charm comes as a bottle cap shaped magnet or keychain. I only have the keychain on hand to show you. The cap is made of red epoxy resin which houses some fun glitters. My son was so excited to see it and I’m surprised it hasn’t made its way to his backpack yet!
$5.00 // 12 magnets and 12 keychains
Seventy Seven – NV
Fallout New Vegas
This polish yells Fall and I’m here for it!! NV is a black crelly base polish with gold to red to orange shifting pigment, orange holographic glitters and red flakes. The polish is slightly thick, but not at all unworkable. As expected, just looking at those nice flakes in there, you have bumpiness left back from the elements. I’m wearing two coats with glossy topcoat.
$12.00 // 75 Bottles Available
Swamp Gloss – Tubba Nuka
Bathtub filled with Nuka Cola
Katie’s Tubba Nuka was one of the polishes that stole my heart in this box. It’s freaking stunning, just throwing colors everywhere! Tubba Nuka has a linear holographic base filled with aurora shimmer, iridescent flakes, a rainbow of UCC flakes, holographic micro flakes and galaxy holographic micro glitter. For all thats in there, it goes on very smooth and dries down the same. It’s incredibly sparkly with the flakes adding depth. I can easily see this one playing double duty as a topper. I’m wearing three coats with a glossy topcoat.
$13.00 // 40 Bottles Available
Sweet Heart Polish – Bread Box Glitch
Bread Box Glitch Doggo
Cassandra Bread Box Glitch is an aqua crelly with copper shimmer. This one is so delicate and pleasant with an easy application similar to that of a creme. I really wish I could have captured more of that copper shimmer for you guys; its so pretty! I’m wearing three coats with a glossy topcoat.
$9.00 // No Cap
Treo Lacquer – Yes Man
Yes Man is another one of my favorites from this box! It is a rusty red creme filled with gold dust like Yes Man’s heart of gold. Deliciously opaque with a slight glow of gold. It also doubles as a stamping polish. It’s just so satisfying! I’m wearing one coat with a glossy topcoat.
Yes Man is a reprogrammed securitron from Fallout: New Vegas. He is completely incapable of declining any order or withholding any information he is asked for, no matter who he is interacting with.
