I finally got the notice that mine have shipped!  Really looking forward to trying them out!

Mine is too. I think I have to have a Helmer! Where did you get the swatches on a ring? And how did you make the labels? Do the numbers mean anything to you or is it individual to the brand being swatched?

I got my Day + Night mystery box yesterday, version 1. I hate to admit I was a tad disappointed after seeing the huge boxes some lucky ladies got, but on the plus side it is still great value for money and all the colours I got are very wearable and I like them better IRL than in the swatches, so Yay!

I'm kind of bummed-- After seeing a couple of the mystery boxes on here that I had zero dupes of, I decided to take the plunge and get one. Of course I got it today, and 3 of the 7 polishes are dupes for me. boo!

 

Anyway I got the Summertime Big Box Version 5 with: Monica, Kyla, Amy, Audrey, Myrtle, Anne, and Susie. Along with the Double ended face brush, eyelash curler, and toe separators!

Aren't Kyla and Monica gorgeous? I have put off a new manicure for two days. Had to do an oxygen sleep study two nights ago and could not have fingernail polish on the nail that wears the little finger dooey... so I put off my manicure a day and then today has just been horrendous as far as everything that could go wrong has!

I don't think so, but I think I can provide some guesses...

 

I know a lot of girls find those swatch sticks at beauty supply stores and ebay. Ebay seems to be the most economical/cheapest, but they usually come from China so shipping requires patience. Those labels look like they're printed on adhesive paper or regular paper then taped on - I've seen girls just write on the sticks with sharpies too, but the printed labels definitely look nicer. My guess would be that she just numbers them in the order she gets them? That way each polish has a unique number. Judging from the labels on the sticks, I'm going to also guess that she has a digital inventory somewhere with her polishes =)

To add to this, I get my sticks from an Amazon seller located in the US. I don't have the patience to wait for international shipping. They come with a long screw thingy that you can put them on but many of us prefer to use binder rings because it makes it easier to add new swatch sticks as we acquire new polishes. icon_cheesygrin.gif

For labels, I use file folder labels cut in half lengthwise. I just write the polish brand/name on them with my lovely Birchbox pen. wink.gif

The labels used by the OP look like they may have been made using a label maker. smilehappyyes.gif

Thanks! I guess I should have gone back and found the original post instead of responding to a reply.

Except apparently it's supposed to be for one polish only! I called CS to add a polish for my coworker that was forgotten, and she explained to code worked for all the polishes but it was indented for just one. The two polishes I added had to be at normal price, but still, I got a great deal!

foxyroxy-26, I went to the site and checked several link and I couldn't find anything. At the bottom of My Account screen, there is a place to insert your email addy to receive news, etc. Try putting in your addy again and see if you start getting offers again. If you don't get the Maven Window though, DEFINITELY call customer service! I think this is my last post for July. I am only going to check the August conversation from now on. See you there!
