Nailbox Review + Nail Art

Hey everyone! For a long time what the UK has been lacking is a nail polish subscription service, the US have quite a few but it's taken quite a while for the idea to reach us here. So when Nailbox got in contact with me and asked me to try out their subscription service I jumped at the chance. Each month you get three to four polishes and one or two extras. With this month's box I got four nail polishes and a cuticle pusher. All of them were from decent brands, so you're easily getting value for money. You can pay for a one-off box for £15 or an annual subscription for £13.50 per month, it's definitely worth it for what you get. If you want any more information you can check out their FAQ page here. I decided to create some nail art with some of the polishes I received, I wanted to do the dry brush technique that I tried for the first time last month but with different colours, and I really like how it turned out.

In my box I got polishes from Essie, Nicole by OPI, Rimmel and Orly, plus a cuticle pusher from Elegant Touch (which sells for £9.50 alone!) so there's something for everyone in there. The polishes are as follows:
Essie - Status Symbol
Rimmel - Lucky Lilac
Nicole by OPI - Alex by the Book
Orly - Fiery Orange
 I used all but the Orly polish for my nail art as it was orange-tinged and when I applied it over the top it didnt look right, but I'm sure I'll use it for something else!

If you want to try out Nailbox for yourself, head to their website to subscribe.
