Glitter Guilty box reveal - May 2013

A Glitter Guilty subscription is 15.99 a month, which covers shipping.  The box includes a monthly mini indie, a custom full size polish, and some chocolate (while it's cool enough to keep) or other treat.   The curator also sends out a "golden ticket" each month in a few boxes for an extra treat!  

I was so excited and nervous for my 2nd box, let me tell you.  And it was a major score!   First, I'll reveal my "Monthly Me" polish, and I'll put a spoiler alert before the "Monthly Mini" to allow any other GG readers to save the surprise if they so choose.

"Demon of the Deep" is a gorgeous, true cerulean blue with gold and teal microshimmer distributed generously throughout.  It was labeled on the outside of it's wrapped package, so I wasn't sure what to expect from the name.  I do adore it, it's a well pigmented jelly - all pictures are of two coats, as my first coat was kind of streaky (user issues, not so much polish issues).  It was hard to capture the shimmer and true color on camera, it is MUCH stronger and more gorgeous in person.

Here's how I had my information filled out this month:

Colors you love?  Plum, Indigo, Vivid Turquoise...most jewel tones with grey, nude, or milky base
Colors you hate?  Yellow, Orange, Pinks, heart glitter

I'd say this definitely qualifies as a jewel tone, and this polish is a much closer fit to "me" than the last one.  Since I don't often wear bright blues, I don't even have a close dupe - just a couple cremes that would make for good "undies".

One more look before we move on:

Now, onto the "Monthly Mini", the polish all subscribers receive in their box each month.

As revealed a couple days ago on their FB page, this month's mini was named "Party Hearty" (in honor of the curator's birthday!!!).  But, don't go searching for a crowd full of heart glitters here, because instead we've got a flashback of neon shaped glitters that will make any '80's fan swoon.  I paired it with my favorite grey, Cockatoo's Mystery by Loreal.

You ready for some fun???

I actually painted this one first, in case the blue had staining (there was none) - but I couldn't bear to take it off, so I've got different mani's on each hand right now.   I hope she adds this one to her store, because it's awesome.  It's got assorted neon hexes and squares in hot pink, vivid blue, transluscent lime green, and a sprinkling of small glitters throughout.  The formula is awesome, no "fishing" for glitters here.  I hope YOU get in on the fun of the monthly box, because it's so much fun, and with awesomeness like this, I expect great things to follow.  If you do sign up, put my name in the referral link - Frankie Caswell.  Thanks!!!!!

P.S. I keep forgetting things I forgot because I loved the polishes so much!   The chocolate this time was a chuao Chocolatier Potato Chip Chocopod.  The unseasonably hot Oregon weather got to it, so it's hiding in my fridge to become edible again.
And I was not even the least bit bummed not to get the "golden ticket" or extra prize this month.  These polishes rock.

These boxes just look awesome. Both your manis look beautiful, but oddly, I'm really loving that glitter over the grey <3
