Nailbox – July 2016: Paradise has arrived!

If like me, you constantly switch up your nail polish throughout the month then Nailbox is the perfect subscription box for you. Every month, Nailbox sends five items (three nail polishes and  two nail tools or decorations) for only £15!

The theme for this month is Paradise and the colours definitely embodied this theme!

This month, I received 3 full sized nail polishes, a nail treatment and a nail tool.

Here’s a closer look into my July box:

Nailberry Coconut Nail Balm (RRP £12)

Firstly, this smells divine! If you love the smell of coconuts then you will love this nail balm, it truly follows the theme and made me think of laying on a beach with a pina colada! Whilst it’s a small pot, a little goes a long way. It is made with  Coconut, Jojoba, Olive, Bee wax and Coconut fragrance. This balm is perfect for moisturising my cuticles, especially with my constant use of polish remover.

True Brit London Nail Varnish in The Summer House (RRP £12.50)

True Brit’s packaging is just simply superb, the box alone is luxurious. This polish is a nude brown which has a slight gold undertone. The formula of this polish is perfect in terms of application. For a nude, this polish is well pigmented so it only needs two thin coats.

Nails Inc. Gel Effect Polish in Soho Palace (RRP £14)

I really like Nails Inc’s gel effect polishes as they use Nail Inc’s plasticiser technology and the usual wide brush for perfect coverage, so I was happy to see this in my box. This polish is an aqua blue/turquoise that reminds me of the sea in the Caribbean.It is extremely pigmented, I could get away with one coat and I would still have beautiful shiny nails.

Angelica Polish in Snow White (RRP £2.75)

I have never heard of Angelica nail polish before but it seems to be good quality nail polish for such a good price! The price has no way affected the formula or the coverage. This shade is a nice opaque white and only needs one coat which is rare for white polishes. I will be sure to purchase some more Angelica polishes.

 Brush Works Toe Separators (RRP £2.49)

This was the only let down for me in this box as I don’t really think anyone uses toe separators any more. I can’t see myself using these at all but they could come in handy if I were to give someone a pampering gift basket.

Overall I am impressed with this month’s box, the quality has picked back up again. The value of the box is well above what I paid and that always makes me happy to know I got a bargain! With so many subscription boxes available now, I think Nailbox should update their packaging a bit and add a sweet or something (who doesn’t love food?).
