Essie Polish in Knockout Pout, Avenue Maintain, and The Girls Are Out

These are all lovely colors, went on beautifully, and have not chipped in 3 days. My favorite was the purplish color because it has a shimmer to it and is just a really unique color. the-stepford-guide-blackbox-cult-cosmetics-8

I really like this box. It made it really easy to get creative.
