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! 🙂

Revlon Parfumerie Pink Pineapple

Hey chickas! After I posted about the Revlon Parfumerie Ginger Melon the other day, I couldn’t stop ogling the others a the polish impressed me so much. I did end up buying three more, the first of which I’ll be showing you today. I know scented polish isn’t for everyone, but it’s one of those things that I absolutely love and I feel like Revlon do it best! I did write a list on the other post of the ones I liked the look of, but in the end I only got one of those because I felt in a spring-y mood and bought spring-type colours instead.

This one is Pink Pineapple 🙂

Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm Demure

Hey my lovelies! I have something a bit different to show you today. I’ve been feeling the urge to share more than just nail polish on here for a while, being that I am female and I wear makeup and use hair and body products every day, I feel like I’m missing on a whole load of my other obsessions hobbies. As far as makeup goes I tend to like to keep my mascara, eyeliner, brows, foundation, powder and bronzer the same – I’ll talk about these soon if this post goes well! I do however love to change up my eyeshadow and lately my lips. I was never a lip product fan really, I always felt that my lips were the one part of my face that seemed to be all one colour and didn’t really need enhancing. However, like with nail polish, I have become a bit of a lip product junkie!! I don’t know how this happened but I currently own around 30 lip products…!

Anyways. I have been really enjoying stick balms for quite some time, Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey, Soap & Glory Gloss Sticks in Fuchsia-ristic and Plum Jam, and Seventeen Lip Crayon in Knockout, to name a few. And then this one caught my eye; the packaging suckered me in and before I knew it it was bought and safely in my bag within minutes. I don’t regret it though, I’ve been loving this all week!

Revlon I’m Electro

Hello chickas! On my shopping spree recently I came across a lot of new offerings from Revlon, as well as the Parfumerie collection I was talking about in yesterday’s post. One of these was the Revlon Spiderman collection, also known as the Revlon Electric Chrome collection. It’s a collection of six colour-shifting polishes. I wouldn’t go so far as to call them duochrome as you’ll see from the pictures, but they’re pretty colours and in the bottles they look amazing. Inspired by the new film, The Amazing Spider-man 2, each bottle has a decorative gold spider web on the cap. It’s the little things! 🙂

A few of the other nail varnishes in the collection didn’t seem so unique to me so I decided to try just one, so that if I didn’t like it I wouldn’t have wasted money, as I hadn’t seen any swatches at that point. I picked up I’m Electro, which in the bottle is a lovely steely blue shimmer with a purple shift. However:

Revlon Parfumerie Ginger Melon

Hey there lovely ladies (and gents? Give me a shout if you’re a gent – I’m trying to persuade my brother that it would be totally cool for a man to wear nail polish!). A few weeks ago Revlon Parfumerie hit our shelves… well some shelves, in Boots. I’ve been looking at them for ages but just couldn’t decide which to buy – only a couple grabbed me but a lot were easily duped in my existing collection. I decided that I would have to try one, for blogging purposes of course 😉 so the lovely hot pink Ginger Melon came home with me. As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I have seriously neglected pinks of late so what better way than to jump back in the deep end with a hot bright pink?!

Now these ‘Parfumerie’ have been around for a good while for our US friends, but now that they’ve finally landed on UK shores there has been some excitement about them! I think a lot of it is to do with the retro perfume-bottle style shape, which is adorably cute and definitely not as much of a hindrance for application as I’d anticipated. Oh and the fact that these all have individual scents, largely based around the name of each nail varnish.
