The G.N.O.M.E. Box May 2016 Swatch and Review

**Press Samples**
Today, I get to show you all swatches of the next G.N.O.M.E. Box. This is my first time working with this box, and I was so excited when they approached me. The G.N.O.M.E. Box stands for Glitter Nerds Of Magical Existence. That is clever and whimsical and I love it! This box is different in that it only has three makers. Keeping it small allows it to be a bit more affordable at only $24Rica and Stardust Beauty are the two brands that are constant with every box. This month, the guest maker is Girly Bits. These three ladies did a beautiful job with their polishes. I won't make you wait anymore. Keep reading to see swatches and find out how you can get this month's G.N.O.M.E. Box for yourself!

Gnome Regrets

Rica's contribution is Gnome Regrets.
Gnome Regrets is described as "a bloomsberry purple linear holographic polish with a soft pink-violet shimmer, and holo blue/purple tiny glitters".
Shown is three coats of Gnome Regrets with top coat.
Gnome Regrets had a smooth application. It is a crelly that is on the sheer side, so I would definitely recommend three thin coats to get the most of dry time and full opacity. I don't know what bloomsberry is, but this color is incredible! It's bright and flirty. The brush was easy to manipulate so there was no clean up needed. I think this just might be my new favorite purple polish. Gorgeous!

Take Me Gnome Tonight
Stardust Beauty's contribution is Take Me Gnome Tonight.
Take Me Gnome Tonight is described as "a deep berry linear holo with a hint of purple shimmer".
Shown is three coats of Take Me Gnome Tonight with top coat.
Take Me Gnome Tonight is so rich. In addition to the hint of purple shimmer, in the right light there is a beautiful dusting of gold as well. It was more sheer than you'd think, but after three thin coats you've got full coverage and a ton of sparkle! Beautiful formula and a brush that is easy to manipulate. Minimal clean up needed.

Up to Gnome Good
Girly Bits' contribution is Up to Gnome Good.
Up to Gnome Good is described as "an enchanting royal blue with both linear and scattered holographic pigment, accented with bright turquoise blue and purple micro glitter".
Shown is two coats of Up to Gnome Good with top coat.
Up to Gnome Good is unlike anything I've seen. It looks normal in the bottle, but once you get it on the nail and in the right like it just comes to live. The combination of linear and scattered holo is stunning. It has an incredible effect. I'm honestly speechless as to how to describe it, but trust me. It's beautiful!

How is this the first time I've tried the G.N.O.M.E. Box?! If this is how every box is, I don't know what my problem is. Three beautiful polishes for only $24 (plus shipping) and it's even available to you international ladies. Not too shabby, right?! That's only $8 per polish. This month's G.N.O.M.E. Box will be available to purchase on Sunday, May 15th at 8 pm EST at www.etsy.com/shop/justricarda. The first 20 orders will be shipped ASAP. There are 20 boxes pre-made. After that, the orders will be done as pre-orders. Pre-orders will be done through Sunday, May 22nd at 8 pm EST. They are capping the pre-orders at 150. The pre-orders will be shipped once all the product has arrived. (Please note that Girly Bits is a Canadian brand and it takes her packages a little longer to arrive). Make sure you are following all the brands on their social media platforms (links below) to stay updated on news, releases, and sales.

What do you all think about this G.N.O.M.E. Box? Have you bought them before or will this be your first? Which is the stand out to you?
