Meebox Review: Gold Glitter Roses

Hey everyone! Today I'm showcasing a 'new' subscription box: the Meebox*. I say 'new' because they've been around for a few months now but they're new to me, and my first experience was definitely a positive one. Each box contains "at least three top brand and indie nail polishes, essential tools, vital treatments and stunning nail art supplies". 

In this Meebox* I got Smith and Cult - Porn-a-thon (RRP £19), Leighton Denny - Feel The Burn (RRP £11), Nails Inc - Chelsea Embankment (RRP £14), Sparkly Nails Square Studs (RRP £1.50), plus three swatch sticks. Some lucky buyers also got a bottle of Chanel polish in their box, but unfortunately I wasn't one of them! Meebox is £20 for a rolling subscription, or £54 for 3 months. Each month has a new theme, this month's theme was 'Red Carpet.' 

I decided to create some nail art with the polishes I was received, I didn't use the studs because once I tried to add them to the design I decided they didn't really work, but the other polishes were all used. I wanted to experiment with a different kind of rose design, I'm still trying to perfect roses, I've done them very similarly for years but I never feel satisfied with them. I was really proud of how these turned out but there's still some work to do too.

I must admit that Smith + Cult is a much more peachy colour than this picture shows, as can be seen from the design, but otherwise the picture is colour accurate, for some reason it just couldn't capture it in this picture. I also used OPI - Don't Mess With OPI for the leaves - because what are roses without leaves? This Nails Inc gold is AMAZING though. Just two coats and it's so opaque and glittery. I couldn't stop staring at my nails whilst I had this on. Leighton Denny - Feel The Burn was also a fabulous one-coater, although I actually used two because I'm always worried that the camera will see something I don't! 

What do you think? Do you want to/have you tried Meebox?
Let me know in the comments!


  1. This box looks awesome, though I would be bummed if I wasn't one of the lucky Chanel polish recipients haha. That Nails Inc glitter is gorgeous and of course I adore your roses!!

  2. Beautiful, I love your roses and that gold is gorgeous! I've done a few Meebox reviews, had their first 5 boxes actually and have only recently stopped because I was getting too many dupes with my collection anyway. I do miss receiving it though, such a lovely box to get through and always such great value (plus I'm in love with the little "Hello, it's mee" sticker you always get :))

  3. Gr8 colors combination and beautiful roses <3

  4. ooh, I love that gold! I think this looks like a great box, and I love the look you've created from it. I always admire your roses so much!
