Glitter Daze Daze of the Month Unboxing--July 2013

Nail polish subscriptions are very popular now. Indie polish makers are getting in on the game, thankfully. The first one that I am trying out is Glitter Daze Daze of the Month, details at the end of this post. There are three levels; I bought the lowest level, Super Daze. 
*I purchased this subscription with my own money. I am not affiliated with nor compensated by Glitter Daze.*

Packaging:
I am definitely influenced by cute packaging in my purchasing decisions. Good job, Glitter Daze.




If you want to be completely surprised, don't read the card! It tells you all the details of what's in the box and why.




Extra:
How nice! An extra hand care item as a gift for continuing the subscription. (June was my first month; I didn't blog about it because I traded the polish. It was pretty, but not me.)



The hand fizzy is very cute, same principle as a bath bomb, I'm guessing. I haven't used it yet, but it should be scented like either grapefruit or gardenia, according to the informational card. It's molded like a flower. But be careful: It looks like a cookie, so don't let your kids or spouse or self mistakenly eat it. 


Hand Care Item:
I was happy to receive this Super Smooth Basecoat. I love a good base coat, and this one delivers. It dries quickly to a smooth, matte finish. June's hand care item was a quick-dry top coat, which I also liked. I believe that neither the base nor the top coat have been released yet, so subscribers got a nice preview.


Full-Size Polish:
July's full-size polish is called Summer Garden. It apparently has some flower and butterfly glitter in addition to what you see in my swatches, but I haven't seen any yet. (EDIT: The owner Sana has since contacted me and clarified that they made a version with and a version without the flower and butterfly glitters, and sent one or the other according to what you said on your preferences questionnaire.) I still love this polish. Yes, I'm one of those people who are addicted to all the milky base glitter polishes.



One coat over Super Smooth Basecoat: 


Two coats:


Three coats:


Four coats:
Four coats were not necessary, but I was trying to find some of the flower and butterfly glitters.



Four coats plus one coat of Glitter Daze quick-dry top coat: 


(I used too much top coat and got a blob of it on the right, sorry.)
