Hello and Welcome!!
Well New Years is sneaking up on us fairly quickly. Do you have any special plans? I know some of you could possibly get engaged!!! I really don't know,it's just a possibility.I'm just spiting words.That would be amazing though.I would love to get engaged on New Years.Most of you may think I am married.I am not,but I am by common law.I have been with my man for 14 years and no marriage yet.Hopefully we will take that step soon.It's a looong story why we are not....you know,married!I know it will happen one day.
Anyway let's talk polish!!!! This that I am sharing with you today is the Beauty Quartet Box for February.The theme is called Treat Yo Self.This box will contain polish from Philly Loves Lacquer,Smokey Mountain Lacquers,Digital Nails and the quest indie,Love,Angeline Polish.Sadly Northern Star Polish was involved in this box but had to leave due to time constraints.So bi-monthly there will be a new brand involved.Yes this box is a bi-monthly box which means every two months there will be a newly released Beauty Quartet Box.About the theme....Treat Yo Self.If you watch Parks and Recreation,you will immediately understand the reference. If you don't here's a helpful link....Click Here.Basically, the idea of treating oneself to a day of pampering and luxury is the epitome of the term "treat yo self". So we wanted this box to encompass that.
The nail polish lineup for the February box is as follows:

This box of awesomeness can be purchased for only ($50 shipped in the US, $55 shipped to Canada and $60 shipped International.)Enough chit-chat,let's take a look at the goodies!!
The Best Day Of The Year by Philly Loves Lacquer
The Best Day Of The Year is described as a dark fuchsia crelly filled with pink, dark pink, magenta, and red glitters of various shapes and sizes.
I applied 2 coats followed by a quick dry top coat.
This is a very beautiful polish!! I love the color and combinations of glitters.No fishing for glitter was needed.This applied nicely with no issues.
Philly Loves Lacquers Extra:Annberry Sauce Lip Scrub
This photo above is Philly Loves Lacquers extra. It's a sugared strawberry flavored moisturizing lip scrub.How to use...Just pull that nifty tab right off,then rub your finger around in a circular direction.Then apply the product to your lips.You can either lick it off like I do or......gently wipe it off with a wash cloth.
Chocolate Waterfall by Digital Nails
Chocolate Waterfall is described as a dark brown jelly with gold, silver, and copper micro holo glitter.
I applied 2 light coats followed by a quick dry top coat.
This is a fantabulous blend!!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!! The formula is slightly thick making this polish a one coater.I used 2 coats just because I felt like it. LOL No issues to report. This polish is so sparkly.If brown is not your color...it is now!!
Digital Nails Extra: Remover Improver
This photo above is Digital Nails extra. It's a remover improver that conditions nail polish remover and it's scented like Cocoa Puffs.!! Something fresh and new to the indie market. I'm sorry but this product is kick-ass!!!!The product comes in a glass vial.This is not nail polish remover.It's actually ingredients you add to remover that will soften you skin leaving it feeling moisturized and smelling amazing. It is water,glycerine,jojoba oil,almond oil and cocoa puffs fragrance. What I did was I got a mason jar,poured 8oz of acetone in it.Then grabbed my Digital Nails Remover Improver and poured the entire vile into my mason jar and shook it up really good.You will need a larger container if you will be mixing 8oz.Mine ended up being 1 1/3 cups instead of 8oz/1cup.
My first thought was that since this product did separate in the vial before mixing with acetone,it would separate in the acetone as well. WRONG: The product did not separate at all once it was shook up and mixed into the acetone. I let the jar of acetone sit for 16 hours and there was no separation at ALL! As for the scent....Have you ever opened a box of Cocoa Puffs cereal? Well it smells just like that. Yummy right? The scent is not strong or overwhelming. It's actually a pleasant sweet smell.
Emeralds are a Girls Best Friend by Love,Angeline Polish
Emeralds are a Girls Best Friend is described as a emerald green holo with green flakies and green shimmer.
I applied 2 light coats followed by a fast drying top coat.
I'm adoring this polish so much!It is such a fun and pretty color. Love,Angeline creates some beautiful blends.This polish is thick and that's why it is a one coater. I used 2 just because ..but 1 coat is enough to get that opaque finish you want.No issues to report.
Stuck on Love Nail Shields by Love, Angeline
Love,Angeline Polish's extra is a sheet of 10 heart shaped nail shields.When I peeled off the shields,the hearts came up with the shields as well. I did have to get tweezers and pull off all of the hearts one by one which made it very time consuming.The shield did stick to my nail really well. Unfortunately when pulling the shield off of my nail it did smear the hearts a little. Oh well I need practice.
Pleasure In Your Base by Smokey Mountain Lacquers
Pleasure In Your Base is described as a bright blue creme with a foil-y finish.
I applied 2 light coats followed by a fast drying top coat.
The formula is perfection. Not to thin or to thick.This blue is the most radiant shade of blue in my collection.It's really pretty.
Rose-Scented Body Whip by Smokey Mountain Lacquers
Southern Fancies Rose Scented Body Whip is an extra by Smokey Mountain Lacquers.This lotion is very moisturizing and leaves my skin feeling hydrated and refreshed. No greasy or dry feeling after application. It had a faint rose fragrance that does not overwhelm the senses. I really love it and I know you will too.
That is that! I hope you enjoyed this review and find it informing. If you have any questions about February's Beauty Quartet Box just leave me a comment below.Or for more info on this box,be sure to check out all of the sites I linked for you below.
