As much as I love nail polish, I haven’t been too excited about my Nailbox subscription any more. I was however looking forward to seeing what would be in May’s box as it had the theme Tutti Frutti, which is perfect for Summer.
This month I received 3 full sized nail polishes, a nail treatment and a nail file.
Here’s a closer look at what was in my May box:
Cuccio – Mint Condition (RRP £4.86)
This is a brand I have never used before so I intrigued about how well it would apply. This is a pastel mint green colour which is something I wouldn’t normally go for but is really nice. The application was easy as the brush provided great coverage.
Essie – Haute in the Heat (RRP £7.99)
What can I say but another bright pink nail polish! I know I previously mentioned that I like bright pink polish but not this much! This is the third one so far and I honestly wish I received a different colour to try. I generally like Essie polishes as they are really opaque and shiny, have great consistency and are long lasting.
ORLY – Orange Punch (RRP £10.50)
I have heard of Orly before and they have great reviews as a nail polish brand, so I was really excited to see this one. It is an extremely bright orange colour which perfect for Summer. It has great coverage as it was bold after just one coat. I will definitely be using this one often.
Elegant Touch Nail Apothecary – Nail Growth (RRP £7.95)
This treatment polish is a base coat which promises to promote nail growth and strengthen the nails with its salon strength formula enriched with silk, vitamin, proteins and oils. I haven’t tried this one yet but I am sure it will work well like the others I have received.
Stylfile – VIP Leopard Nail File £4.99
This is a very interesting nail file, I have never seen a ‘S’ shaped nail file before. It is ‘S’ shaped because your nails are curved so the curved nail file makes filing quick and easy, even when using your non-dominant hand. I loved the leopard print detail as it is furry which is definitely different!
Overall, I was quite impressed with this month’s Nail box apart from the repetition of the hot pink. Hopefully there is more of a variety next month. Once again, the box was great value for money as in total, the products were worth £36.29
