If you read my review of the March Nailbox, you would know I was somewhat disappointed with it. If you didn’t read it, you can have a peek here. I was definitely hoping Nailbox would restore my faith in them with the April box and I have to say they did!
This month is Nailbox’s anniversary so the theme for the box was “Happy Birthday Nailbox”. This month I received 3 full sized nail polishes, a nail treatment and nail accessories.
Here’s a closer look at what was in my April box:
Invogue – Sugar Daddy (RRP £2.99)
I love hot pink colours, especially for my toes and Sugar Daddy is definitely hot! This is a bold colour which is perfect for the summer or any holidays. Whilst I like the colour, I did receive a bright pink in the March Nailbox so it does seem a bit repetitive.
Bourjois – So Lacque! Bleu Asphalte (RRP £5.99)
I fell in love with this unique colour, it is beautiful. It is hard to describe the exact colour but it is a smokey dark purpley-blue grey. I love Bourjois nail polishes as they apply perfectly and the brush is great for one even stroke.
Ciaté – London Baby (RRP £9.00)
I have never tried a Ciaté nail polish before but the bottle is so nice and elegant with a cute bow, it deserves to be on display. This polish is a beautiful glitter and grey polish which applies so nicely. I don’t normally like glitter polishes as they often require a lot of coats which equals an extra long drying time! Thankfully Ciaté is of really good quality as one coat left my nails blinging!
Elegant Touch Nail Apothecary – Nail Quencher (RRP £7.95)
This treatment polish is a base coat which promises to moisturise your nails and reduce peeling and splitting. I haven’t tried this one yet but I am sure it will work well. I have received a few Elegant Touch Nail Apothecary products from Nailbox and they have been great.
Elegant Touch – Stylist Pre-Glued Nail Gems £2.95
I am terrible at nail art unless it involves stamping so I love things that easily help me make my nails look intricately designed. These gems are so easy to stick on, they even come pre-glued so I am excited to try them soon.
I have noticed that the themes behind the Nailboxes aren’t really apparent any more. For example, for February the theme was Valentine’s so they included a little packet of love heart sweets which was a really nice touch. For this anniversary / birthday box, they could have included at least a balloon, confetti or something just to enhance the idea behind the theme.
This month’s box was much better than last month’s, and rightly so as it is a celebratory birthday box. I loved almost everything in the box, I immediately painted my nails with two of the nail polishes! The contents of this box were worth £28.88, so again worth the £15 I paid.
