February's Meebox featured three nail polishes and some nail studs. The polishes were Smith & Cult Porn-a-Thon (RRP £19), Leighton Denny Feel the Burn (RRP £11), Nails Inc Chelsea Embankment (RRP £14) and Gold Square Studs from Sparkly-Nails (RRP £1.50). Also, five subscribers received a Chanel polish (lucky them!) The box itself costs £20 a month, or £18 if you buy a 3 month subscription. Luckily, I don't have any of these shades in my collection (I've never actually tried Smith & Cult before) so there was no duplications which means the box more than delivered its price in new polishes.
Anyway, onto the shades! Porn-a-thon is a pastel peachy tone. It's got a really creamy formula and it takes three thin coats to get full opacity. Chelsea Embankment is a beautiful gold glitter polish from Nails Inc. I tried to create a subtle gradient with the glitter, varying the amount of pressure I used when applying the polish but if I was using it normally, you'd get full opacity in two or three coats, which is pretty darn good for a glitter. I used Feel the Burn for the scalloped tips. It's a warm, slightly dark red which will probably pop up again on the blog. I used a striper brush to create a chevron tip for each nail. Once I filled in the tip and made sure it was opaque, I used a dotter to create the scalloped edge. Then, using Porn-a-thon and a smaller dotting tool, I dotted inside the red dots to create a cut out effect. Finish the look off with the gold square studs in the middle of the tip and top coat.
If you're into nail polishes (which I assume you are if you're on this blog!) then give Meebox a go. This month's theme is Kawaii (which will be awesome!) so if you're a fan of all thing Japanese, check out the subscription plan here. You'll always get back the money you pay for the box and more and if you get any duplicates from your stash? Be a great friend and give them to someone, share the love!
