For The Love Of Polish Box - March 2019

Hello! Today I have the March For The Love Of Polish Box to share with you. If you are new to the FLTOP box, it is a monthly box run currently run by Polished For Days, Pahlish, and a third guest brand each month. It is a US based box so I don't tend to pick it up often, but March's 'The Little Mermaid' theme won me over! The guest maker was Fair Maiden Polish. Read on for my full swatches and more info!

First up is Fair Maiden Polish 'Under The Sea', a teal base with green shimmer, shifty opalescent flakies, and a soft holographic sparkle. The formula is smooth and easy to apply. I could just about see my nail line after two coats, so added a third. Those with shorter nails should be fine in two. Below is three coats with topcoat.

Polished For Days 'Aquata' is a white crelly base packed full of multichrome flakies that shift from teal to blue and from blue to purple. The formula is smooth and easy to apply. This is definitely wearable in two coats due to the amount of flakies, but I prefer adding a third to build up the base. Below is three coats with topcoat.

Pahlish 'Dinglehopper' is a neon purple base with irridescent flakies - I can pick out so many different colours including pink, purple, blue, green, and orange. The formula is smooth and easy to apply. The base is more on the jelly side to help the flakes show through. It starts off sheer, but builds up nicely. Below is three coats with topcoat.

I wanted to do a mani using all three polishes together, and fitting into the theme. I do have an actual The Little Mermaid stamping plate on the way, but for now settled on UberChic Beauty plate Mermaid Life. I made decals using the mermaid scale pattern, and coloured in various scales with 'Under The Sea' and 'Dinglehopper' before applying them over a base of 'Aquata'.

What do you think? I just couldnt resist this box - both for the theme and the polishes themselves. If I had to pick a favourite, it would be 'Dinglehopper'. It's so bright and shifty and pretty, and definitely completely unique in my collection. As mentioned, I don't tend to get the For The Love Of Polish Box a lot, but I believe they have adjusted international shipping so I may be tempted more often!

Unfortunately, as each box is limited edition, none of these polishes are currently available. However, you can follow the For The Love Of Polish Instagram page here as to not miss any future boxes.
