Polish Addict Nail Color Mini Mystery Box Review

Well, I would like to apologize for not being around here much since my giveaway ended. My son has been sick almost the entire time his dad has been deployed so I've been exhausted and frankly just didn't feel up to posting much. But I am back today with a great review for you. Today I'll be reviewing the mini mystery box from Polish Addict Nail Color. The mystery box is offered in mini and full size with the difference being the size polish that you receive. This mini mystery box sells in their shop for $10 and you receive four mini polishes with this box, which could be current colors in the shop, one of a kind (OOAK) or prototypes that never made it into the shop. If there happens to be a holiday around the time you place your order of this box, a goodie bag may also be inside. 
In my mystery box I received "The Prince & The Showgirl", "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes", and "Some Like It Hot", all from the She's A Legend Trio, and a "Mystery Polish". I also received a spring goodie bag which included three little bottles of loose glitter, a mini nail buffer, and a mini size of their High Shine Top Coat. I will be doing a separate review for the High Shine Top Coat because I want to give you guys a thorough review for that and not just "Hey, yeah its a super shiny top coat". I want to be able to tell you how it stands up, so be on the look out for that post very soon! So without further adieu, onto the review of the polish!

A Shot Of Everything In My Mystery Box

First up I would like to share with you, "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes", which is a champagne/nude crelly that has a mix of gold squares, hexes, and stars. I will admit I was a little apprehensive about this polish at first. I wasn't sure the color was for me, or if I would like it, but I have to say, once I put this on I actually REALLY liked it. The formula is great and dry time was good, but I think the uniqueness of this polish is what really made me enjoy it. There's definitely nothing like this in my collection and my collection is outta control lol. I used two coats with top coat in my pictures.

Next up is "Some Like It Hot", which is a sexy brick red matte polish. Did you catch the part where I said this is SEXY?? Oh man!! I am so in love with this polish. Its absolutely gorgeous and if you want even more reason to love it, just add a top coat for an amazing shine that you just can't beat. Formula is perfect and dry time was fast, as with most matte polishes. I think I like this one the most the way it was intended to be worn, which is matte. If you're not big on matte finishes, hey some people aren't and that's okay, then just look at my swatch with top coat and you'll have to have this one too. I used three coats for my pictures, but I easily could have gotten away with two. I've just become slightly obsessed with doing three coats on everything lately and I'm not real sure why lol.

Next up is the last of the She's A Legend Trio and that is "The Prince & The Showgirl", which is a medium blue linear holo polish that has a bit of a chrome like finish to it. Um, hello! I love holo, I love this color blue, so yes, I love this polish. It is so gorgeous and formula and dry time are perfect! I used three coats plus top coat for my pictures. Try not to get distracted by the gorgeousness... I still have one more polish to show you.

If you're still with me and haven't died from the gorgeous holo you just saw, next up is the "Mystery Polish" that was included in my box. This was a mauve jelly packed with TONS of glitter. Way too many to even begin to list and tell you every single one lol. I love mystery polishes from PANC because while all of their polishes are unique and fun, the mystery polishes tend to have so much glitter in them... and I'm a glitter freak! lol The formula and dry time on this was great as with all of the polishes I received for review. I used three coats with top coat for my picture below.

Well there you have it. My review of the mini mystery box from Polish Addict Nail Color. I loved all of these polishes, as I usually do when it comes to PANC. Their mystery boxes are a great way to start your PANC collection, but they're also a fantastic way to continue to expand your collection as well. They want to ensure that you don't end up with duplicates so they encourage you to email them a list of polishes that you already own to make sure all polishes you receive are new for you. The customer service of this brand is BEYOND amazing. I've never had a problem with anything when it comes to them. Remember to be on the lookout for my review of the high shine top coat later this week. If you'd like to purchase a mystery box, full size or mini, or you'd like to purchase any of the She's A Legend Trio polishes, you can do so in the PANC shop here Also make sure you are following PANC on Instagram @polishaddictnailcolor or on Facebook for updates, sales, restocks, and more swatches of their amazing polishes. Thanks for reading my loves! And make sure to follow me as well!
