Baroness X Monthly Mythical Mysteries • April 2016 Amphitrite

The Baroness X Monthly Mythical Mysteries are here again. Well...they've been here for a while, but I want to make sure that the universe is as spoiler-free as I can make it.



(promotional samples ahead)


Contents
Amphitrite • 15ml polish
jiggly jelly soap • 2oz
bath salts • 40g gross weight (I weighed mine)



Amphitrite (feat. China Glaze White on White)
This is a delicate cornflower blue with green shimmer and green iridescent flakes. It is the perfect shade for a cold, ocean-inspired manicure. It is super sheer and streak-free...which is perfection for all sorts of pond manicures. I decided to do an alcohol marble here and I think it turned out pretty cool. Not quite as "seafoam and waves" as I had hoped, but it is still pretty. My kids said it looked like the sky on a sunny day. I'll take it. 

On my index and pinkie, I alcohol marbled Amphitrite over my white base then alcohol marbled another layer of white and then another layer of the blue. For my middle two fingers, I used solid layers of Amphitrite sandwiching the alcohol marbled white in a traditional pond manicure style.

Jiggly Jelly Soap in Saltwater 
If you can use jiggle-jelly soap and not giggle...well you are obviously a better adult than I am. This is a bright uv reactive green jelly soap with a soft, clean "salt water" scent.  Being that I live near the largest ocean ever, this is a decidedly better smell than what we smell at the beach. I got to use this soap exactly once before the wee folk commandeered it. It was nice, and no glitter weirdness was left over afterwards. I'm always cautious when it comes to glitter in bath products. I used a mani bomb once that had heavy microglitter and jumbo hearts all up in it...and nothanks

under a blacklight. AWWWW YEAH.
We have a secret group for spoilers, and the lovely Michelle posted a video of this soap in action and I had to make my own. Yes, I copied her. She's brilliant. How could I not? Though I did add some slow motion sillyness...



Ocean Bath Salts
I used these Ocean bath salts in my foot soak and aaaaaaahhhh. So nice. I am not a huge bather (because I don't want to herd all the toys that live in our bathtub) so products like this that serve multiple purposes are just the thing for me. When I was a kid, my aunt had a pretty cobalt jar filled with bath salts like this, and if I wasn't acting like an asshole she would let me use a scoop or three. I always felt like some posh princess when I used them. This scent is almost exactly what those salts smelled like and it just takes me right back.

I am in love with these sets, and the addition of the Golden Ticket just makes the deal all the sweeter. There are rumors of this becoming a subscription-type thing, and I am crossing my fingers. I definitely don't want to miss a single one.

June 2016 is still available. For $15 you really can't beat the price.
