From the old website:

We are a monthly indie collaboration box hosted by JReine Cosmetics that donates a portion of each box to charity.  There is a new theme each month that is voted on in our Facebook group – be sure to follow the link below to join and help us shape future boxes and suggest your own favorite charitable organizations to be sponsored!  

Each month, the box contains at least 3 items created by indie makers, and the designated portion of proceeds from sales is donated to that month’s sponsored nonprofit organization.

Well it looks like you are in for a treat because the August box will have way more than 3 items! It will have 9! All polishes will be available for individual sale, so you can pick and choose what you would like!
The makers in this months Creepicute Creatures themed box are:
JReine Cosmetics, Jior Couture, Nailed It Nail Polish, Red Eyed Lacquer, Colores de Carol, Anchor & Heart Lacquer, Indie by Patty Lopes, Noodles Nail Polish, and Geekish Glitter Lacquer.

The charity for this month’s box is The Innocence Project. $1.00 from each polish sold is donated to the charity of the month.

The Innocence Project, founded in 1992 by Peter Neufeld and Barry Scheck at Cardozo School of Law, exonerates the wrongly convicted through DNA testing and reforms the criminal justice system to prevent future injustice.

Red Eyed Lacquer
A Little Magic Can Take You A Long Way

Price: $12.50 USD
Description: A sky blue crelly with red / gold UCC flakies and a sprinkling of bronze / green aurora shimmer
Inspiration: A still from the movie James and the Giant Peach

Low Daylight

My swatches below are 3 coats of polish over a peel off base coat and topped with a quick dry top coat. I also used Red Eyed Lacquer’s Tips Matte-r Matte Top Coat for the matte photos.

You should be able to get away with only two coats with this one but I was ummmm struggling with swatching on short nails again haha! I just wanted to even everything out. Otherwise the flakies all laid down nice and flat and I had no application issues.

I am in love with this color though. The rich fall colors of the flakies with the bright sky blue make this one feel perfect for any season!

Matte

Geekish Glitter Lacquer
The Myth, The Legend, The Baby

Price: $11.00 USD
Description: A white crelly with holographic black shreds and green shimmer
Inspiration: Baby Jersey Devil

My swatches below are 3 coats of polish over a peel off base coat and topped with a quick dry top coat.

This polish is a little bit thicker due to the large shreds but I was still able to apply it and smooth things out with each coat. Everything laid down nice and flat except for one flake I accidentally let stick up near my cuticle. But that operator error was easily fixed with some top coat! Mwahaha.

I love this polish. I love how it layers and if you look just right at some of the pictures you can see some shiny almost multichrome reflections off of the flakes. I cannot wait to wear this one again!
