Dis is muh baybay! You Polish, Lauren, asked me to come up with a polish for this box. I may swatch polishes and know a thing or two about them, but I leave the mixing creativity to those who are good at it lmfao. One night it hit me that I've never seen polishes related to my favorite book series, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson. If you like a good book and you're not too squeamish, I recommend this series of books to anyone. ;]

Can I Call You Lisbeth? was mixed to match the cover of the first book in the series. It has a green shimmery base, lime and green glitters, orange glitter and black glitter to match the words on the book. I think Lauren did a dayum good job matching the cover, don't you?

I did 2 coats of Can I Call You Lisbeth, no undies - it's pretty opaque on its own. The application was flawless with no clumping or thickness to be found. The dry time was also good to go!

Aqua Mint is a shimmery green mint colored base with mint and white glitter with some holo dust and holo circle glitter! A great way to cool down that summer heat, eh? It's light and glittery in all the right ways.

I did 2 coats over China Glaze For Audrey and on my ring finger, 3 coats with no undies. The application was great and the dry time for me required a bit of patience. I had to use an orange stick to mix to get the circle glitter out. If you have patience for a polish that has a nice pay off on the nail, this is perfect. Personally, I don't and it just made me frustrated hahaha lucky for it - it's pretty :P

Painting the Roses Red was also in the April Sub Box, as well as the August box. I'm glad she brought it back because it really is a gorgeous polish,  one of my personal favorites out of all the polishes I've reviewed for her!

PS: I'd like to personally thank everyone who took their frustration for Floss Gloss' flash sale picture out on me, ya'know since I made it and all - not. If you unliked my page, I hope you don't enter any of my giveaways :D And if you cared so deeply about that picture, Floss Gloss has removed it AKA it's not on my timeline anymore.
