Press Release - The Beauty Quartet + 4 October 2015 Box

Hey Polishers!,
I've got some exciting news to share with you today about a new subscription box coming from fabulous indie makers! I myself am hoping to get my hands on one of these boxes so that I can share them with you as well. This is perfect for anyone that's looking to try out some new brands but aren't sure where to start. There is some further information as  well as some FAQ that you can read up on after the jump. It does sound interesting! 

Philly Loves Lacquer and Smokey Mountain Lacquers present



For the one-year anniversary of the Beauty Quartet Box, Kim of Smokey Mountain Lacquers and I decided to make a super-sized box to celebrate! So we came up with the BQB+4.

It will include 8 exclusive limited edition bottles of nail polish from Philly Loves Lacquer, Smokey Mountain Lacquers, and Rica, Dollish Polish, Gothic Gala Lacquers, Love Angeline, Girly Bits, and My Indie Polish.

Price: $65 shipped in the US • $70 shipped to Canada • $75 shipped everywhere else

The BQB+4 will be available for pre-order at www.phillyloveslacquer.comSeptember 15th through September 30th, and will ship shortly after.

Q: Why did you choose to do 8 makers and 8 polishes instead of the normal 4 makers and 4 polishes/4extras?
A: we wanted to make a special box to celebrate the BQB's one-year anniversary, so we included 2015's favorite guests, as well as two well-known Canadian indie brands. 

Q: Is this a subscription?
A: No! The BQB is a pre-order, and will be available from September 15th until September 30th, or if we run out of our cap of 50 boxes sooner. 

Q: Will you sell more than 50 boxes?
A: Possibly. If we sell out quickly, and there's a high demand, we may release some more sets. 

Q: Where can I buy the BQB+4? Will it be available in all the maker's shops?
A: No, it will only be available for purchase at

Q: When will the BQB+4 ship? Will I get it by Halloween?
A: The BQB+4 will ship in the beginning of October, once I receive all of the makers' contributions. You will receive tracking information as soon as the box ships. I am reasonably certain that you will in fact receive the box by Halloween.

Q: Will the polishes in the box be available individually or outside of the box? 
A: All of the polishes in the BQB/BQB+4 are exclusive to the box, and will not be made available individually outside of the BQB. However, some of us do choose to sell our extra bottles in mystery bags, but we cannot guarantee this will be the case. 

Q: Why can't I redeem PhLL Rewards Points on my BQB/BQB+4 orders? Will I still earn my points?
A: Since the BQB/BQB+4 is a combined effort between several makers, and the proceeds are shared amongst them, redeeming reward points specific to PhLL is not fair to the rest of the box participants. However, you can absolutely earn points with your purchase, which will be usable on future orders that do not contain a BQB, prototype, or mystery bag.

Q: Do any of the makers in the BQB use the harmful base that Mentality uses? 
A: No. We can all safely say that we do not use the same base, and can provide confirmation from our suppliers to back up our claim, if needed.
