NailBox – UK Monthly Nail Polish Subscription

Hello everyone! Apologies again – I’ve been neglecting the blog a little this week. The job hunt, ya know, blah blah etc etc fill in the blanks :). I hope you’ve all been having a good few days. I am pretty excited about the subject of today’s post, which feels like the product we’ve been waiting for for a good couple of years in the nail polish community!

This week, “nailbox” kindly sent me a preview box to review ahead of this month’s box going out to review for you all. What is nailbox? It’s only a monthly nail polish subscription box! Yay! As far as I know, this is the only mainstream nail polish subscription box in the UK (with the exception of Coloristiq, which is a nail polish rental service – you get to keep the polishes you receive in nailbox).

In this review I’m going to show you what you receive for the April 2015 box, and give a brief review of all the products, as well as explaining price points, delivery details etc. – more info below! 🙂

Rimmel Sweetie Heart Matte Collection

Hello everyone! Hope you’ve had a happy Easter, or bank holiday weekend, or whatever you celebrate/don’t celebrate 😀 I received these new Sweetie Heart nail polishes from Rimmel a couple of weeks ago (unfortunately I’ve been so busy job-hunting, I have got a little behind with my schedule!) and I’ve been trying them out. They seem so perfect for spring, I hope you’ll agree 🙂

The Sweetie Heart collection is an all-matte collection, consisting of 5 pastel-type shades. I think the theme is based on the ‘Love Hearts’ sweeties made by Swizzels Matlow – the ones with phrases like ‘kiss me’ on them 🙂

Seaweed Nail Art – MoYou Doodles Plate 07

Hello friends!  I’m afraid I’ve another stamping manicure to show you today – I’ve caught the stamping bug well and truly and I don’t think it’s going anywhere soon! 😛

Andy was kind enough to treat me to three stamping plates from MoYou London – eek! I was so excited it was ridiculous! They arrived two days ago and I would guess I’ve spent a good 8 hours just playing around with them. And during that playing around time, I came up with this manicure 🙂

This is possibly my favourite stamping plate in the world ever, so of course I had to show you this one asap! I’ll be using more of it in the future, but for now I’m showing you the seaweedy bits!

Blue & Silver Meadow Stamping

Hey everyone! I’m back with some more stamping, I’ve got really into it lately! The lovely Charlie of Pocket Money Polishes has lent me 24 (24!!!) MoYou stamping plates to play with… I am far too excited about this!

I had to start somewhere, so I decided to do a grey-blue style manicure to match the weather we’ve been having lately. And then some silver fieldy stamping to make it a bit more fun 🙂

I am still getting the hang of stamping so bear with me if the designs come up a little uneven!

Turquoise Black & Gold Layered / Double Stamping

Hey everyone! Hope you’re having a good day. Lately I’ve been more and more interested in nail art (keeping to my self-challenge of doing 20 nail art posts this year!) and a little while back my friend Charlie from Pocket Money Polishes kindly lent me some of her stamping plates. It’s taken me a little while to post this manicure I’m afraid – I gave her the plates back at least a month ago! 😛

I’ve always loved the combination of turquoise black and gold, like gold-set turquoise jewellery, and I thought it would probably look nice on nails too 🙂
