Hitched - April Meebox Review + Nail Art

Hey everyone! This weekend in the UK was the May bank holiday weekend, so we've had a nice three-day weekend. It's been great to have that extra time off but I'm actually more tired than I should be as I didn't get to sleep until 3 last night. Today I've genuinely spent the whole day re-watching Sherlock and not doing much else really because I was too tired to contemplate being productive. 

Today's review is of the April Meebox*. Meebox is a monthly subscription box (you can see my previous review of February's box here) I must stop you before you roll your eyes and say 'another subscription box?' because Meebox's stand out from the crowd in my opinion and are consistently great. I've been really impressed with both boxes I've received (and other boxes I've seen across social media that I haven't received). For just £20 a month you're getting value for money, this month's box would total almost £40. 

Each month the box has a theme, and this month's theme is 'Hitched', their first bridal theme. Each month you are emailed what the theme will be on the 1st of the month, and you can choose whether or not you would like to receive the box. There's no contract, you can opt in and out whenever you want, and I think that freedom makes them quite unique. I decided to create these simple heart stamped nails with some of the products from this month's box (read on after the jump to see the products).

In this month's box I received:

Clear Jelly Stamper (RRP £7.99)
Miss Cat Nail Stickers (RRP £1.99) + an exclusive 20% off code

I was very happy to receive a clear jelly stamper in the box, despite the fact that I had actually just bought one off eBay, because this is likely to be much better quality and it means I don't have to wait for weeks for it to be delivered from China. It was also a great excuse to continue practice stamping, which I've been loving recently, but with more precision. 

For the nail art I used a coat of Mavala - Riga from the french manicure set, then I stamped using the stamper and plate plus the white from the set. Whilst this wasn't completely opaque, I like how it came out because it looks more like a baby pink shade when stamped over Riga. I attempted to use Leighton Denny - Breakfast in Bed and double stamp over the top but it just didn't show up. I then added nail stickers from Miss Cat Nails and finished off with a coat of topcoat from the set.
