nailbox // may 2015

nailbox* // £15

yet another monthly subscription box to add to your list to choose from - and i'll give you three guesses as to what the this one's speciality is (clue: heavily acetone based).

inside the box: essie status symbol, rimmel lucky lilac, nicole by opi alex by the books, orly fiery orange and an elegant touch cuticle pusher and nail cleaner. the retail value of the box adds up to an impressive £38, but i'd bear in mind that it's very easy to find nail polish at a heavily discounted price. despite me not being the biggest fan of most nail polish colours that aren't black, nude or burgundy, i'm quite drawn to the Essie shade and it'd look lovely on my feet with sandals (that is, if anything can ever look lovely on a pair of feet ever), maybe if it plays its cards right then it'll end up on my fingernails too.

there's no fancy outer packaging to show you, instead the polishes come securely packaged in a plain brown box. each month's box contains five products, at least three of which are nail polishes. also if you shimmy on over to their website, they're hinting that june's box will contain the legendary seche vite top coat which is like a tenner on its own - not bad.

  1. The Essie shade looks lovely, the orange one not so much! At least you get a range of colours though!

  11. Love the Essie one as well!

  12. I'm signed up for birch box right now, but I really want to sign up for lip monthly and now this one too! I think doing a subscription is way less money than going out and buying the products! I love the colors and brands they sent to you in this box!

  14. I love the color of the Essie nail polish!

  15. I quite like Rimmel and Nicole ones. I am a bit on a pastel side kind of girl :) This box sounds not bad, it could be a bit cheaper as the products aren't very pricey itself :)

  16. I love the Nicole by OPI mint green shade! Pastel colours are definitely my thing all year round.


  17. Great colors,
    Thanks for sharing!


  18. I've never heard of this subscription box before, but I have a friend who loves painting her nails, so I'll definitely recommend this to her! Thanks for the share :D -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's

  19. This post reminds me - I don't own any summer nail colors! Right now my nails are painted maroon/burgundy and it's definitely not summer appropriate shade ;) I guess I should pick up sth lighter - my eyes are drawn to the lilac from rimmel, you showed - maybe I'll start with that one ;)
    If you'd like you could check out my new blog arabesque - I'd be honored ;)

  20. That looks like a great subscription box!!! I had no idea it existed - thank you!


  21. Love the Rimmel nailpolishes ! The purple one it's gorgeous !

  22. That purple/pink one though! **smiley face with heart eyes**
