Nailbox – June 2016: Festival Fever!

If you have read my previous posts, you would have gathered that my Nailbox subscriptions have not kept me excited. I have already gotten over the novelty of it all. Therefore I didn’t expect much from this month’s box.

However, this month’s cute Festival Fever shades definitely sparked my interest!


This month I received 4 full sized nail polishes and a pack of nail art.

Here’s a closer look at what was in my June box:

Elegant Touch – Stylist Nail Art Tape Metallic (RRP £3.95)

I am not the best at nail art, in fact unless it is a French tip or dotting I am absolutely rubbish! These metallic strips are really easy to use and easily make my nails look like they have been professionally done.

Essie – Jazzy Jubilant (RRP £7.99)

I loved the gold glitter polish by Essie that I received in one of the previous Nailboxes so I was excited to see a variation of it in this box. This glitter polish has turquoise and  pink specks of various sized glitter. I wouldn’t say the application of this polish is as good as the gold one as it takes a few coats to get good coverage.

Rimmel – Cheeky Chap Sweetie Heart Matte Polish (RRP £3.99)

This is such a beautiful pastel powder blue by Rimmel with a matte finish. I am not really fond of matte polishes as after a few days they turn shiny due to using hair and body products. I will probably use a shiny top coat when wearing this colour.

OPI – Is Mai Tai Crooked? (RRP £12.50)

Firstly, I LOVE the name of this polish….it did make me giggle! I am a big fan of OPI polishes so I was extremely happy to add to my ever growing collection. This colour definitely goes with festival theme. It is a peachy orange which has attracted a lot of compliments!

Bourjois – Turquoise Gel 1 Second Polish (RRP £5.99)

I love Bourjois nail polishes as the brushes are amazing at giving an even coverage. This polish is a lovely bold turquoise colour which claims to give a dry gel finish within 1 second. As you can imagine, this claim is not true but it does dry quite quickly!

Overall, I think Nailbox have definitely got back on my good side so I won’t be cancelling any time soon. There were no bright pinks this month and the polishes were quality! The value of this box was £34.46 and I only paid £15 so once again, a great bargain!
