August A Box, Indied Sneak Peek: Glisten and Glow You've Been Hazed Photos, Swatches, and Review


I’m SO excited to share this polish with you because it’s been created by Jill from Glisten & Glow. As you already know, I absolutely LOVE her HK Girl Top Coat (Can we say: Holy Grail Top Coat?!) I was absolutely thrilled to see that she has now started creating polishes because she is absolutely talented!

This polish was created for the August A Box, Indied monthly subscription box available at The theme for the August box is Go Greek- Pi Beta Polish, inspired by the movie National Lampoon’s Animal House.  I haven’t seen the movie! I have been meaning to, but I haven’t gotten around to it –  I will need to change this soon as I love National Lampoon’s. The polish is dubbed You’ve Been Hazed Delta Tau Chi Pledge Class 2014.



Don’t you just adore her packaging!?

Let’s take a look at what this beauty looks like now!

And, in the shade:


Overall, this beautiful steel blue/dark periwinkle holographic was OUT OF THIS WORLD. I absolutely love this shade of blue and it’s a holographic to boot! This is only 3 coats (one extra coat for good measure – I don’t want it to chip away because I’m wearing this manicure all week!) It was shiny on its own, but I will definitely be adding HK Girl later on to prevent chipping and for long wear.

The August A Box, Indied, is expected to launch July 26th at I recommend following Llarowe and A Box, Indied on Facebook for updates on launch times and changes in the date if one should be needed. Ongoing subscribers, you can sit tight and wait for your box.
