February Nailbox- Retro Theme

Hello my lovely readers, it is that time of the month again. Nailbox! I always dread and love the end of the month I dread it because it is when all of the bills go out and my bank balance looks like it wants to cry. But I also love it because we get amazing nail mail, this months Nailbox is retro themed. When I opened my box I immediately thought of hippies and old time discos. So let's see the goodies inside the box.

This month the lovely people at Nailbox treated us to four different polishes and a set of 3D nail wraps. I love how bright and funky these colours are, and the nail wraps look really unique and different. 

The first polish is this gorgeous cobalt blue shimmer full of blue and silver micro glitters, this applies well but does take at least 3 coats to become opaque. It has a very sheer formula and with longer nails you may even have to apply a fourth coat to not have any visible nail line. You can buy this Nicole by OPI from Amazon for £8.

I was really happy to see another Essie polish in this months box, this is Essie Flowerista a beautiful plum purple creme. It was almost opaque in 1 coat but just needed that second one to even things out, the brush is the wide rounded paddle brush. I love this deep plum colour, this polish was released in last years spring collection so it is fairly new. You can purchase Essie Flowerista from nailpolishdirect for £8.95. 

I haven't actually tried this brand of polish before, this is Eye Candy London Juicylicious. Eye Candy London is a UK beauty brand that can be purchased from Tesco, Sainsburys and Amazon. Juicylicious is a very sheer light orange creme, it took 3 coats to become opaque. It is £4.00 from both supermarkets and is out of stock on Amazon right now.

The last polish in the box is Rimmel Wedge Of Lime, this is a pretty lime green creme opaque in 2 coats. It has that great formula you come to expect from Rimmel and there are no brush stroke marks once dry. You can buy Wedge Of Lime for £2.99 from Amazon.

The last item in this retro box are these pretty Eye Candy 3D nail wraps, I have only ever used nail wraps once when I received them in my very first Meebox. These wraps have gems in all sorts of different colours including white, red, green, blue and yellow. You would definitely catch peoples attention with these shining on your nails. You can purchase these nail wraps at Fragrance Direct for £1.49.

Overall I am happy with this box it is lovely to see some bright colours and they definitely do give off a retro vibe. The price of this box was £15 including postage and the total price of the goods inside the box is £25.43 so that is a great saving of £10.43. Another fabulous box for a great bargain, you can sign up to Nailbox today for £15pm. The theme for March is Easter so I am looking forward to seeing some lovely pastel colours and maybe some little bunnies. 

I hope you have enjoyed this months Nailbox and you are all having a great nail day, chat to you all again soon.

  1. Lovely post! It's a bit of a shame that two of the colours are quite sheer but I'm loving the brighter theme! Looking forward to our Easter box :) x
