February's Meebox- Red Carpet

Hello my lovely readers! I was so happy to finally get this months Meebox yesterday, I was clicking on the tracking link for what seemed like every hour of the day. I always love the themes that Meebox choose to go with, this months theme fit really well as we are in award season. So when we were told it was going to be a Red Carpet theme my mind immediately went to reds and golds. There was also an opportunity for five lucky people to receive a special Classic Chanel polish, I was not one of the winners but my amazing friend Becca was. Huge congratulations to her! So let's open up this months box and see what we have.


As usual when I opened my box the first thing I saw was the card telling us about this months theme and what brands where inside the box. I placed that to one side and rummaged around in the paper worms that were keeping my little award winning polishes safe.

The first polish I picked out was this large circular bottle made by Smith & Cult, I have never even heard of this brand before let alone tried them. The bottle is quite heavy and unlike any other brand of polish that I own, the bottle alone screams sophistication and good quality. The colour we were given is called Porn-A-Thon, this is a pastel peach creme polish opaque in just one coat. Unfortunately for me this polish does not suit my skin tone so will probably be given to my mum as she loves these sort of colours for work. Smith & Cult are a high end brand of nail lacquer with 5 free formula each bottle contains 15ml of polish, you can purchase this bottle of Porn-A-Thon from Selfridges for £19.

The second bottle of polish is from Leighton Denny another high end brand of polish, they have won many awards for their nail polish formula. The polish we received is called Feel the Burn, it is a dark deep red opaque in 2 coats. It is not too bright so would go with many other colours and would give that great finishing touch to any classy evening time outfit. I am sure many celebrities would wear this whilst walking down the red carpet, you can pick this Leighton Denny polish up from nail polish direct for £11. 

The final polish in this months box is another fabulous Nails Inc glitter, this is Chelsea Embankment a gold glitter that is fully opaque in 2 coats. This would look great with the Leighton Denny polish as either an accent nail or a glitter gradient. I do love the Nails Inc formula and there brush is night and wide so you get good coverage with the three stroke method. You can buy Chelsea Embankment from the Nails Inc website for £15.

The last item in this months box are these gold and silver nail art studs from Sparkly Nails, these are a great way to finish off any red carpet ready mani. You can pick these studs up from the Sparkly Nails website for £1.99.

As I mentioned there were 5 subscribers who received the Chanel polish and Becca from A certain Becca Nails was one of those lucky ladies. Click on the link to go see that highly sort after classic Chanel polish!

Overall this months box was fabulous very appropriate for any Red Carpet event, The total price of all the goodies in this box was £46.99 that is a huge £26.99 saved. Meebox is a monthly subscription box you can get for £20 per month, they also do other plans so it can suit each persons financial situation. They are always coming up with great theme's for each month and the polishes and goodies included are fantastic. If you haven't signed up for a box yet I highly suggest you do; next months theme will be announced on the 1st of March and I can not wait to see what they have chosen. 

As always I hope you have enjoyed this unboxing and review of this months Meebox, I would love to know your thoughts on this Red Carpet box and can't wait to see what mani's people come up with. Hope you are all having a fab nail day and chat to you all again soon.
