The School’s Out For Summer box will be available for preorders on June 15th-June 22nd in the Parallax Polish shop. The polishes are limited edition and exclusive to the box so you will only be able to get them by purchasing the box. I used Out The Door top coat for the photos below. Let’s take a look!
Anonymous Lacquer Beauty School Drop Out is described as a light purple crelly, with pinks, purples, blues, whites and iridescent glitters. Three coats although you could get away with two thicker ones. The formula was great, not too thick or thin and I had to do surprisingly little fishing!
Black Dahlia Lacquer A Summer Abroad In Italy is described as a dusky teal-leaning blue crelly with flakes that shift from green to blue to orange to copper. Two coats. The formula was good, not too thick or thin. It did have a bit of a skunky smell that certain blues/purples sometimes have but it wasn’t overwhelming and goes away when it dries. The Black Dahlia Lacquer brushes also have a very long stem so you have to be careful when applying so that extra polish doesn’t drip down onto your nail.
There were what looked like pigment specks/streaks in the bottle I received but since there aren’t powder pigments in it when I contacted the maker we couldn’t quite figure out what it was. She mixed up another bottle and sent it to me and it had no issues, so it could have been a fluke and I’m confident she would fix any issues. These photos were taken with the first bottle which is why you can still see a few specks in the macro. I’m so in love with the look of this polish- it’s like looking through clear water into a jeweled lake.
Parallax Polish JK, I’m Going To Summer School is described as a neon green holographic polish that glows blue in the dark. Two coats. The formula was good, a little thick but still easy to work with. It does dry matte and a little gritty so top coat is a must.
Overall, I think this is a fun box with a variety of finishes and it’s a great way to try out some new brands. Again, if you want to grab this box for yourself it’ll be available for preorders on June 15th-June 22nd in the Parallax Polish shop.
What do you think of this subscription box? Have you tried polish from any of these three brands before? Let me know in the comments!
