Influenster Unboxing-to-Conclusion: TLC VoxBox

Video & Review

   Or, the 'Box that I never reviewed properly because it came as a surprise when I had no time to post my regular content, let alone extra reviews.  Oh, Influenster.  I do feel bad about this.  I managed to get my unboxing video done, did the Twitter party (blah), and had poked at Pinterest activities, but my plans to do anything more than that fell by the wayside.  I haven't posted anything here in a month.  Ouch.
 
   Here is my first impressions video, in case you missed it:


   The TLC VoxBox was sent to select Influenster Moms, and is actually my first "mom" box to review.  Pretty cool, but also a bit difficult because I don't blog about "Mom things".  My blog is 95% nail polish and what I share on public social networks generally leans towards fashion, beauty and art.  Not practical Mom stuff.  But let's look at it anyway!

Rainbow in the Clouds Manicure

Nail Art


   Here is a manicure I created using the new Sally Hansen Color Foil polishes.  They were perfect for this technique, which is much simpler to create than you might think!  Yes, this is the art that was originally meant to go over Raven.  But this base color was more fun - it glows in the dark!

Zoya: Raven & Sally Hansen: Sterling Silver

Swatch & Review


   This was meant to be a base for nail art that never happened.  Well, it did happen, but this manicure didn't last until the time I was ready to do it, and I used a different base color for the art, haha.  So I ended up just swatching Raven, basically!

   Raven is one of my first Zoya polishes, and I realized that I don't remember ever wearing it.  It's a really pretty black with a super-fine shimmer.  However my bottle seems to have some issues, like it wasn't capped tightly.  The formula was off compared my other Zoya pretties, namely in that it did not want to level itself out and didn't wear as well.  I also has some odd bubbles when I added topcoat.  I don't know if that should be attributed to Raven or not.
