Illyrian Polish – Sakura // March 2017 For The Love Of Polish Box

Hi everyone! Today’s manicure is one of a trio that came in the For The Love Of Polish box. This is a monthly box, and March’s theme is Garden Tea Party. Usually they do a pre-order and then ship when the timeframe is up, but this month’s box is a LE with only 130 boxes available. This is only my second month trying this collaboration and so far, I’m a big fan! Every month Illyrian and Polished for Days and a special guest maker makes one polish each around a theme and it goes up for sale HERE. March’s guest maker is Powder Perfect.

As of my writing this post, there are still some of the March boxes available! It’s a great deal at just $27.50 plus shipping and it looks like it ships worldwide too! I am not affiliated, just a new fan!

Illyrian Polish – Sakura // March 2017 For The Love Of Polish Box

Illyrian Sakura is described as, “coral-pink holo with pink and silver tiny holo glitter and purple tiny iridescent glitter”. I see a medium rose colored base with a ton of holo! But even indoors without bright light and holo showing, it is still a very pretty rose colored polish. Formula was excellent. I used two coats today and it dries a little bit dull so a good glossy topcoat will really bring out the sparkle! I love it!
