Nailbox – March 2016

I’m not sure if I’ve made it clear or obvious yet but I absolutely love nail polish. I have an ever growing collection which is currently at 263 shades. As you can probably imagine, my bank account takes a hit from my addiction.

I was incredibly excited when I found out about Nail Box. Nail Box is a subscription box which delivers 3-4 nail colours plus a useful nail tool or accessory every month for £15. You can cancel at any time or if you like the box you can commit to a 3, 6 or 12 month subscription.

This subscription box was made just me….well that’s how I feel! The March box had an Easter theme which I expected to be full of pastel coloured polishes but I was completely wrong!

Here’s what was in my Easter box:

Invogue – Matte Suede Effect Emerald Dust (RRP £3.49)

The first full sized bottle of nail polish was metallic green with a matte suede effect by Invogue. This colour is called Emerald Dust and is green with speckles of silver. This isn’t the usual colour I would go for but the matte suede effect is really intriguing. It was easy to apply the nail polish. It wasn’t too thick and went on smoothly.

MoYou London – XOXO (RRP £4.99)

I have heard of MoYou London from their nail stamping plates but I didn’t know they also made nail polish. This polish in particular is a nice vibrant and bold pink. It is perfect for a summer holiday and is exactly the type of colour I love to wear on my toes. This nail polish is so bright that it looked good after one coat!

Eye Candy London – Naughty But Nice (RRP £6)

To be honest, I am not really a fan of Eye Candy London nail polish as their polishes can be quite sheer and require a few coats. “Naughty But Nice” actually surprised me a lot. It is a nice opaque lilac colour which applied really nicely. I really liked the softness of this shade and will be wearing it soon!

Elegant Touch –  Speckled Eggs False Nails (RRP £7.10)

I am a huge fan of false nails, I think they are incredibly fun if you want to have a quick manicure for a cheaper price. I love that these nails go really well with the Easter theme of the Nailbox but I think they are a bit too wacky for me!

Nails Inc. – Express Nail Polish Remover (RRP £8)

I am in love. This nail polish remover is the stand out product in this month’s box, it is amazing! I have seen nail polish removers before and I haven’t taken an interest in them because I felt that they would leave your fingers tasting of acetone for ages….yuk! But this hot pink baby doesn’t do that at all!! I had on a deep maroon coloured nail polish and this nail polish remover took it completely off after 2 twists!

 

Overall, I was quite disappointed with this box as it didn’t really match the theme and I didn’t particularly like the nail polishes, bar one. I would have loved more pastel coloured polishes to get me in the Spring/Easter mood. The Nails Inc Nail Polish Remover really saved the box this month. The contents of this box were worth £29.58 so I definitely got my money’s worth, I just hope the next few boxes improve.
