March Nailbox- Easter Theme

Hello my lovely readers! I am so sorry I haven't posted in the last couple of days, I am trying to fight off this horrible bug that is going around and unfortunately I seem to be losing. Today's post is another Nailbox unboxing and review. This month the theme was Easter, when I think of Easter my mind goes to beautiful pastel shades and eggs. So I was a bit surprised to find some very bright colours in this months box.

This months box contained 3 polishes one set of fake nails and some nail polish remover. Like I said upon my first impression this box didn't really scream Easter to me. It isn't that I didn't like the colours its just that the only one I felt fit the theme was the pastel lavender and of course the speckled eggs false nails. 

The first polish that I swatched was from Moyou London, I was hoping on first glance that it might have been a stamping polish but from what I can see on the site this is Cerise pink which is one of their normal nail lacquers. This is a gorgeous vibrant pink creme that I think will be perfect for the summer, this took 2 coats to reach full opacity. You can pick this polish up from the Moyou London website for £1. 

The next polish I picked out was this Invogue nail polish with a matte suede finish, I have never actually tried this brand before apparently they are the same company who own Eye Candy London. This is called Emerald dust it is a light green with silver shimmer that dries to a suede finish. This took two coats to be completely opaque, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked the finish to this polish. The only place I can seem to find this polish for sale is Amazon for £3.49.

The last polish in this months box is another Eye Candy London polish, we received one of these polishes last month and it was very sheer and took 3 coats to become opaque. The formula on Naughty but Nice was a lot better and easy to work with, it is a lavender creme that took 2 coats to become fully opaque. I would say this is the polish that definitly suits the theme the best out of the 3, you can pick this up from Amazon for £6.

This month we were also treated to another Elegant Touch product, these false speckled egg nails comes in 5 different colours with different sized nails. Unfortunately I won't be able to use this product as I am allergic to the nail glues that come with all false nails. You can pick these up from Boots for £7.10.

The final item in this months box was this Express nail polish remover from Nails Inc, this is one of the nail polish removers were you insert your nail into the middle and twist to remove the polish from the nail. This can be brought on Amazon for £8. 

Overall this box wasn't at all what I was expecting especially considering the theme, the polishes are lovely and the added extra's will be good for some people just not me. This box cost me £15 and the total price of all of the products is £25.59. Whilst this box was still quite good value for money, I just didn't feel it reached it's full potential. I have unsubscribed from Nailbox for the time being, if the boxes get back to what they were like when they first started I may consider resubscribing but for now this box just isn't for me. 

I hope you have enjoyed this review and are having a fab nail day. I would love to know your thoughts on this months box? Do you think these polishes suited the theme? Let me know in the comments section below.I hope to chat to all you lovely people again soon.

  2. Too bad this sub didn't work for you! The polishes look pretty, but I agree, don't necessarily fit the Easter theme.

  3. Pretty polishes but you're right, not really Easter-y. I think a pretty pastels and something yellow would've been more like it.

    1. Yes those type of colours would have been lovely :) even a models own speckled egg polish would have made me consider carrying on. Just don't felt these polishes were right for this theme :/ x
