The Allure Beauty Box is one of my monthly treats. There hasn’t been a month yet where I didn’t get at least 2-3 products that I absolutely loved. Unfortunately (and I tell them every time they give me a survey) they do not include enough nail polish! It’s been months since the last polish (Butter London – The Sweet Spot).

Like other similar systems, this uses a coat of color and a high shine topcoat for a gel-like, long-lasting finish. I don’t often wear my nail polish for more than a day, so I buckled down for the long haul and prepared my mind to leave my nails painted with this polish for multiple days!

Favorite Nail Products of 2015

M Polish - Stamping Polishes

I had all of these plans for blog entries to cap off 2015. Of course, I managed to catch a pestilence that laid me low the day after Christmas (small favors that it held off that long I guess!)

Stamped Multi-chrome Goodness!

ILNP - Sirene stamped with M Polish - To Have and to Holo

Perhaps you can understand how bombastically thrilled I was to receive a bottle of ILNP – Sirene from my Secret Santa swap? Of course I had to put it right on!
