June Splash Meebox Review + Nail Art

Hey everyone! Today I've got another Meebox* to review for you. You can see my previous two reviews of the February and April boxes here. June's box is themed 'Splash' and is a mermaid-inspired box. It's a unique one, because it's entirely made up of indies. The 3 polishes, whilst usually a mix of different brands (both indie and regular), are this time all from A-England, the shades are: Whispering Waves, Gloriana, and The Blessed Damozel. The box also contains:

Mess No More liquid nail tape from Mini Mani Moo Nails
Fishscale nail stencils from Nail Mail
Starfish and Conch Shell studs from She Sells Sea Shells (which is apparently also a tongue twister when I try and spell it because I wrote that wrong 3 times!). 

There's also a couple of unique discount codes in the box too. For £20 a month you couldn't ask for more really, you're definitely getting value for money as the A-England polishes alone are worth £11 each, so that's £33 before you've even considered the rest. Mess No More is worth £10, the stencils £4 and the studs £3 so you're getting far beyond what you've paid for. Subscription boxes are nothing new, but to have a brand that consistently delivers value for money is rare, and in my experience of Meebox so far, and what I've seen on their Instagram for month's I've not reviewed, they consistently deliver. Of course I had to create some nail art with them. I didn't use the stencils (admittedly I completely forgot until it was too late) but I've used them in another design that you'll see soon.





The contents of the box, lots of prettiness as you can see! I also took a close up of the stencil because the picture about doesn't show it: 



I used A England - Whispering Waves for the base, and I sponged it on the tips of my middle finger and thumb (using Mess No More to prevent mess - as the name suggests). Then I used Gloriana for the starfish, and The Blessed Damozel for the octopi, and added the eyes using acrylic paint. Then I added the starfish and conch shell studs, finished with a coat of Seche Vite.


What do you think? Have you tried Meebox* before? Let me know in the comments!

And then I haven't even mentioned your design.. They completely blew me away! You managed to use all those products and still create a super cohesive and gorgeous design, I love them so so much!!

  8. This is such a cute design! Seashore themes usually focus on sand and coral colour, but this one comes with blue and red - it's refreshing to see something new. Plus I love the octopi. <3 :)
