Paintbox Polish's Partial Women of Harry Potter Collection Debuts Black Friday!

*Press Sample*
Get out your wallets!  I am excited to show you some swatches from a "new-to-me" indie brand who will be debuting her new collection on Black Friday!  Paint Box Polish has a six piece collection inspired by the women of Harry Potter!  Tonight, I am going to review three of them. 

Read to the end to get a code for 20% off-good until the end of the year!

Little Bit Different-  Luna Lovegood never brought a fully formed image to my mind, but an ethereal color.  Her polish is a royal blue base with a blue-red-gold multichrome shift and purple & blue shimmer.  Can be worn alone with two-three thin coats or layered.
Little Bit Different is a multichrome polish that changes from blue to purple to red at extreme angles. I didn't see the gold shift though.  It also has the added bonus of blue shimmer!  I used four coats for opacity and had no issues with the consistency or application.
I love that I can see each of the color shifts easily!

In this macro shot, you can see the shimmer much better.
Brains and Bravery - inspired by Emma Watson's portrayal of Hermoine.  Tough, brave, but still feminine.  A grey creme peppered with medium pink glitter that is opaque in two-three coats.
Brains and Bravery is a light grey cream with rose pink hex glitter.  I am always on the lookout for a great grey and pink combination polish.
I used three coats and the base and glitter came out in perfect amounts.  I had no issues with application, although I do wish the cream base was a crelly, so that I could see the first two layers of rose hexes.  On the other hand, it is still a quite beautiful polish!
Slightly Unstable - This is a black crelly polish with a green-yellow-silver shift and scattered holo particles.  Just like Bellatrix Lestrange, this polish is just a little bit crazy. But beautiful. Two easy coats.
This was my favorite of the three polishes I tried! It is a blackened green base with a subtle brown shift change. I did not see the silver, but in my macro shot, you can see the yellow at the edges of the nail.  It also has a subtle holo effect!  This polish was..BUTTER.  Application reminded me a little of A England-smooth and easy and opaque.  It was a dream to put on and I only needed two coats, although my pinkie has one coat.
I wore Slighty Unstable for three days before grudgingly taking it off.  This is a must have!

Paint Box Polish are three free and cruelty free.  Polishes are tested extensively by the maker.  Paint Box Polish follows specific recipes for each lacquer, but slight variations may still occur.

Full sized bottles retail for $9 and minis are $4.  However if you use my special discount code of THINGSILOVE20, you can get 20% off now through the end of the year!
