As a 24/7 Halloween lover, I was very excited to swatch the first ever Little Box of Horrors. This bi-monthly collab is inspired by all things horror, thriller & supernatural and is the perfect indie collab for any die hard Halloween fanatic. Each box will feature at least 25 makers who will draw inspiration from a monthly horror theme!
The theme for March is the great Stephen King. Before I show you this month’s products, I feel duty bound to make a confession, given this month’s theme. I was personally victimized by the movie Pet Sematary when I was a child. So victimized that even now, at the age of 34, I still have not been able to watch it again after the initial time. I barely could bring myself to watch the trailer for the recent remake. I hope this confession does not lead to the revocation of my Halloween lover card. Now that I have gotten that weight of my chest, let’s get to the box!
The March Little Box of Horrors will be available March 18th to March 30th at https://lbofhorrors.com/
The shop will open for preview Monday, March 15th.
All swatches done using Vapid Lacquer Commitment Issues Base Coat and Get Your Shine On. Pictures taken in direct lighting with a natural daylight Ottlite.
Anchor & Heart Lacquer
Thinner Brand of Justice
Inspiration: Stephen King’s book & 1996 movie by the same title, Thinner.
Thinner Brand of Justice is a subtle thermal polish that transitions from medium purple (hot) to a blackened purple (cold) featuring blue/purple/gold shifting shimmer, blue micro flakies, and metallic silver shimmer.
Stephen King Stamping Plate
12 x 6 cm and 60 gr stamping plate that features images from various Stephen King movies and books. Being a fan of the great Kathy Bates, I chose to do a mani inspired by the book and movie Misery.
Gift of the Shine
Inspiration: The silvery blue scenes in Doctor Sleep.
Gift of the Shine is a silver magnetic polish loaded with blue to violet iridescent flakies and a sprinkling of holo microflake. You can wear it over any color in one coat or 2-3 coats on it’s own. Pictured on it’s own and over a navy blue creme polish.

Other Worlds Than These
Inspired by Jake Chambers from the Dark Tower series
Other Worlds Than These is a complex multichrome polish accented with gold/green and assorted ultra chrome chameleon flakies. In its cold state, it shifts green/turquoise/purple/burgundy, and in its warm state, it shifts purple/rose/orange/gold! As with all thermals, store this polish in a cool dark place to keep the thermal effect lasting as long as possible!
Inspired by Susannah Dean from the Dark Tower series
This cuticle balm is scented with a relatively subtle custom fragrance blend meant to resemble & accent a sultry, natural skin musk. With fragrance notes of orange, bourbon, huckleberry, violet, apricot, caramel, and a light white musk, this is a warm feminine-leaning-unisex blend perfect for spring.
The Mist is described as a very dark green/black in most lights (cold) to green (warm) with green/copper/gold clear flakes.
All Work and No Play
All Work and No Play is described as a bright red jelly filled with orange to green shifting flakies and added holo shimmer. Inspired by the famous carpet.
