There are so many subscription services out at the moment and I’m loving them, I was very apprehensive about them initially when they were introduced to the UK because I didn’t like the thought of paying for the unknown and potentially receiving nothing of interest or worth however having had my monthly boxes delivered for a good two years they do really make you try new products you might not have heard of before or give you great sample sizes to take on holiday/to the gym/a night away etc so I’ve definitely done a 180 on them.
Nailbox is a new subscription service all to do with nails (obviously) and it’s one I am really loving, as you all know I love nail polish and my talons are never bare so a subscription box that delivers purely nail polish and the odd nail tool is right up my street.
So in this month’s box I received four nail polishes and a Elegant Touch Cuticle Pusher, Essie Status Symbol, Rimmel Lucky Lilac, Nicole By OPI Alex By The Books And Orly Color Blast Fiery Orange. I have to say I love the Essie, Rimmel and OPI shades but not as keen on the Orly, I think it would look lovely over an orange opaque shade but on its own I don’t think it’s suits me but I am impressed with how opaque it went in three coats to say the base colour is so transparent. As for the others all opaque in two coats and all lovely shades, I particularly like the Rimmel one because although it’s a lilac it’s not the normal pastel shade that I’m used to seeing around this time of year and I really like the brush as it makes painting your nails so much easier.
Nailbox Is a monthly subscription for £15.00 (Link) and I am happy with the overall box, I like that the packaging is just the outer mail box and not another box within it as it’s so wasteful and I’m literally neck deep in empty Glossyboxes I don’t think I’d be able to cope with anymore monthly ‘too nice to throw away’ boxes.
I definitely recommend the service for the nail polish addicts or if you don’t have many and are open to being surprised on what shades you receive.
