Beauty boxes are a saturated market now but I still love the odd one. There is starting to be a change in the market with more variety from health snack boxes to specific boxes. Nailbox is a subscription service that offers flexible subscriptions. You can order one off boxes for £15 or pay for 3,6 and 12 month subscriptions which saves some money.
L and I are both big nail fans and love painting our nails so a nail specific box was going to be something we loved. Each box contains 3-4 polishes and a nail tool or treatment. I do like that it’s not just all polish.
We were kindly sent the June box to try out and review. As I’ve got a ridicuoulsy large nail collection atm and I’m trying to grow my nails and not paint them too much L tested out all the colours. I couldn’t resist snapping up the seche vite (£9) though as it’s my favourite top coat. Nothing beats it in my opinion. You can reads my original review here.
The thing that immediately stood out to us in the box were the great brand names and the wearable colours. The Nails Inc Gel Polish in Colville Mews L put on straight away as she had a wedding to go to. Nude nails go with everything and leave a look polished and classy. L loved how smoothly it applied and the gel effect left a great glossy finish. This nail polish alone is worth the price of the box as it retails for £15.
The elegant touch cuticle nipper is worth £12.50. I think cuticles are usually something people neglect to clip. I find my cuticles need clipping every few weeks. Tools like this make it so much easier. I can’t get on with scissors but this is sharp and allows precision without cutting more than is needed.
The second colour L tested out was the Tanya Burr Polish in Mischief Managed £5.99. We’d both heard a lot about these but this was one L didn’t get on with. It wasn’t the easiest to apply, had a thin formulation and took too long to dry.
The final colour was Essie Roarrrrange £7.99. Essie is a brand we both love and you’ll find lots of NOTDs of. They have a great colour range, great formula and a reasonable price. Roarrrange didn’t disapoint with that. It’s a perfect summer colour and one L will be getting lots of use from!
Overall we are both really impressed with this box. It’s great value (worth over £50) and comes with good brand names. Previous boxes have included china glaze (another favourite brand of L and I) and opi!
What’s your thoughts on a nail only subscription box? I’ll be treating myself to more of these! I do love that from what I’ve seen the colours in the boxes also reflect the season not just a random selection. It really feels like thought goes into the box.
Love L and M
