Nailbox - Monthly nail polish box

Friday, 12 August 2016

Hello! I'm really excited to show you my post and swatches today as I've got a box to show you from the monthly nailbox subscription service from www.nailbox.co.uk. This is incredibly exciting news as this is the opportunity to get a monthly delivery of beautiful seasonal shades of mainstream polish brands, which I don't think we've got going on anywhere else at the moment in the UK. WHOOP!

So, whats the score? Each month, nailbox will send 4 full size polishes and an additional nail care/nail art item. You can choose to subscribe for a full year, and pay £13.50 per box (delivery included) or buy on a monthly basis for £15 a month (delivery included). I love the idea of getting a box of pretty polishes delivered to me each month!


This box contains four polishes:
  • Bourjois - Black Turquoise
  • OPI - Is Mai Tai Crooked?
  • Rimmel Matte - Cheeky Chap
  • Essie - Jazzy Jubilant
And a set of Nail Art Tapes from Elegant Touch Stylist.


Starting with Bourjois - Black Turquoise.  This is a really highly pigmented turquoise shade, that dries to a brilliant high shine.  This is two coats - it's so lovely and bright it's nearly neon.

Next, we have Rimmel Matte - Cheeky Chap - this is a lovely pale blue pastel that (clue is in the title!) dries to a matte finish.  This is really quick drying too, and the simple thing is, if matte isn't your thing, you can easily add a glossy top coat if you like too.  This is two coats.

This was the perfect base to then try out Essie - Jazzy Jubilant.  This is a lovely glitter topper that I think would look lovely over most colours.  This is one coat.

Final polish in the box is OPI - Is Mai Tai Crooked?  (I love OPI polish names, they always make me chuckle).  This is a lovely peachy/orange shade.  Again, lovely application and nice shine.  This is three coats.

The extra bit in the box this time is some nail art tape from Elegant Touch.  So I thought it'd be a great opportunity to use all the polishes and do a little nail art.

The nail art tape is a sheet of long strips of lots of different metallic shades which you can cut to size and apply to your nails.  Really simple to jazz up your manicure!
