July MyGlam Bag and Circus by Andrea's Choice in Somersault

I've been getting MyGlam bags for quite a few months now and I figured since this one included a nail polish that I'd share it here.  I think I've gotten about 5 or 6 bags total and this is the first one to actually have a nail polish. I've enjoyed them so far, though.  The biggest selling point for this subscription monthly was the price, I love that it's only $10 a month.


First off, the bubble mailer they send it in is fun. It's a metallic magenta mail that I peel the label off and reuse. I get really excited when I see that.  Each subscription comes with a little cosmetic bag (hence the bag in MyGlamBag). I've got a stash of them now that I use for all different kinds of things.


They're all vastly different but each bag so far has been the same size. I've got a metallic baby pink one and a blue one with pink kisses on it, as well as others. A few months ago they included a brush pouch with a single brush in it.  Each following month was another brush or two included in each, forming a full set aside from a big blush brush. I've got no opinions on brushes as I'm not a make up guru but it was a cute & clever concept to keep you hooked.

Review:

I was really excited to get a nail polish finally and even more excited to see a yellow creme.  The packaging is really cute too, I like that it comes it in little tube.  One thing that irked me but is entirely superficial is that the label was on a little crooked. It's just a pet peeve, but you had one job Larry!

From the website:

Ingredients
"Natural" Light

Seen here is 3 coats of Somersault over Orly Bonder and sealed with Out the Door.  I had some issues with streaking and even after 3 coats, there were some bare spots.  I stop at 3 coats and I wanted to be able to show you what it really looked like, although the pictures are pretty forgiving compared to what it looks like in real life.

"Natural" Light

I really really really love the color. It's super bright and it pops on my hands.  I'm not sure if the formula is similar with the other colors since yellows are notoriously streaky require many coats.  A forth coat would've fixed the issues but I really don't wear that many coats of polish realistically.

The website is here: http://www.circusbyandrea.com/ but it doesn't give an exact availability date and there isn't a price listed. I think that type of information is important so hopefully it'll be released soon.

Thanks for reading!
