January's Meebox- Blackberry Margarita

Hello my lovely readers; it is that time of the month again I must admit I love the end of the month because there is plenty of nail mail coming through my door. Today's blog post is going to be a swatch and review of this months Meebox, the theme for this month was Blackberry Margarita. When I heard of the theme I honestly could not imagine what they were going to send us. But I am over the moon with the goodies we received from Meebox this month, there are two brands this month I have never tried but have been on my wish list for a very long time. So lets get into this fabulous boozy box.

The colour combination this month is fantastic there is literally every colour of the ingredients that you would put inside a blackberry margarita. I was so happy to see the UK indie brand 'Ard as nails in this months box as I have been meaning to try them for a very long time. I was also very excited to see an A England polish and love the dark plum colour of this polish. 

The 'Ard as Nails we received was called Little Legs, it was the 9.5ml bottle and it is a stunning raspberry holographic polish in a jelly base, this is opaque in 2 coats and looks stunning on the nail. I am wearing this polish right now and can not stop staring at my nails. 'Ard as Nails is a UK indie brand made by Soap Dodger, they are 5 free, cruelty free and EU approved. At the moment they only post in the UK and as long as you are only buying polish from them there is no added shipping, if you do buy some other products such as bath or fragrance products they there will be a shipping charge added. At the moment they only have a mini size bottle of Little legs on their site. you can grab this beauty for £3.50 for a 4.5ml bottle. 

The A England polish we received is called Elaine, this is a lovely plum coloured creme polish, this becomes opaque in 2 coats and has a lovely formula. A England is a high end mainstream brand that produce lots of lovely polishes based off of mythical stories, such as Merlin. You can get Elaine at the A England website for £9.00,

We also received a Models Own polish from the splash collection, this beauty is called pink paradise, this has chunky glitter flakes in a clear base. this is meant as a topper so I don't think you could get this fully opaque. You can get this topper for £4.99 at the Models Own website or from a Models Own bottle shop. They also sell Models Own in some Superdrug stores. 

The last polish item we received was this Nubar Nail Art striper in neon lime, while this isn't particularly a colour I would go for I am sure it will come in handy when doing nail art. You can get this from the nubar website for £4.95 for a 7.4ml bottle.

The final product in this months box was these lovely cocktail glasses stencils from She Sells Seashells, as always these are great quality and easy to use. I think these were specifically made for this box as they are not on the site, but she has loads of nail art goodies on her site, including some of the Uber Chic stamping plates. 

Overall I am super impressed with this months box, the polishes are fabulous and a lovely selection of colours. I will try and get a manicure up tomorrow to go with this awesome boozy box, I hope you have enjoyed this review. Meebox is £20 a month including postage and I am always impressed with the themes they choose and they polishes they put in. Can't wait to see what next months theme will be!

As always hope you are having a fantastic nail day and chat to you all again soon.
