I have something slightly different for you today, which I was sent for review.
For a long time now, the UK has lacked a really good nail polish subscription service. There are loads in the US and even some in Oz, but it's all been a bit quiet for us.
Well, a few weeks ago, I was contacted by Nailbox.co.uk who ARE launching a monthly nail box subscription service, and asked if I'd like to give it a whirl!
The box contains 5 items each month - 4 polishes and 1 extra. For the box I received, there was an Essie nail file and 4 polishes - an OPI, an Essie, a China Glaze and a Revlon - giving you a wide range of quality and brands.
The next box is similar - this time offering Essie, Nicole by OPI, Orly and Rimmel.
So, the key question is how much the box costs. It's £15 a month, but you can reduce that to £13.50 depending on your subscription option. Is that a fair price? Well, £3 is going to be your postage, so that's £10-12 for 4 polishes, which IS good value, although I suspect those 4 polishes will always be older stock to be able to deliver that price.
Should you subscribe? I think they're a great idea. If this was a couple of years ago, I would definitely subscribe. My problem now is that 1000 polishes in (and just as many destashed), there's not a lot I haven't got. However this is PERFECT if you're setting out on your nail obsession, and how exciting to get nail mail every month!
I decided to do nail art with the 4 polishes I received for review, and I really appreciated that the 4 polishes they chose worked so well together, allowing you to wear them alone or in combinations til your next box arrives!
- OPI Kiss Me On My Tulips
- China Glaze Peachy Keen
