My lightbox is finally here!

Happy Sunday everyone!

Hope you're having a great weekend so far and are preparing for Halloween :) I don't have any plans since we Germans don't celebrate Halloween as people do in the US but it's getting more and more popular here. And I love the special sweets and all the decoration stuff related to it. Sadly My Polish Stash lacked the Halloween theme this year. I had so many ideas for spooky manicures in my head but I simply couldn't find the time to carry them out. I will keep them in mind for next year though :)

With this post I just wanted to update my readers on my progress in building a lightbox. And what can I say? I am not that talented when it comes to arts and crafts so I ended up buying one on Amazon... And here it is:

It's a Hama 40x40x40cm foldable lightbox. Along with it I bought two 35W daylight bulbs with a color temperature of 5500K. I might be getting a third one to light the box from the top as well, but so far those two bulbs work fine for me!

I wanted to have such a lightbox since the darker seasons are coming up and then I won't be able to swatch during daylight - or only at the weekend. So now I am able to swatch whenever I want to. I still have some swatches and NOTDs that I took in sun and daylight but my future pics will be taken with this lightbox. I am curious what those will look like then.

What about you, do you like pictures that were taken in lightboxes or under artificial lighting? Do you even use lightboxes yourself? Let me know!

That's it for now. Thanks for reading and have a nice day.
