So the lovely peeps over at Meebox kindly sent over their latest box for me to review. This month's box was inspired by Rihanna, who is probably one of the most famous people to sport nail art on the regular.
As per usual, the box contained 3 polishes along with some studs from Sparkly Nails, cuticle tattoos from Rad Nails and a mini bottle of OPI Nail Envy! The three polishes in this month's box are Zoya Leah (a satin finish cement), Wah London Love My Team (a deep true red) and Danglefoot Polish Higitis Figitis (a charcoal grey with holo/micro-glitter). All three brands are new to my stash, although I've followed them all for ages. I'm so glad I get to try them out. This is the great thing about subscription services like this, you get to try out stuff you've always wanted to, or didn't know you wanted to LOL
I tried to put together some nail art which incorporated all three polishes and would be something maybe Rihanna herself might sport. I haven't used the studs or the cuticle tattoos in this one just because I think they might have overwhelmed the look but I'll definitely be putting them to good use this festival season!
For the nail art I used Zoya Leah as my base. It took three thin coats for full opacity. It's a cool neutral shade, quite grungy but too dark. I like its semi-matte finish but of course you don't see it here because I applied a top coat. Next, I painted the half moon shape with Wah London Love My Team. Love My Team is a classic red shade, something Rihanna has sported many a time. I'm so glad I've finally got my hands on one of Wah Nail's polishes. My local Boots doesn't have a stand and I'm saving my points to buy some from the website. Although I didn't get using it this time, I reckon the long brush will make application really easy. Lastly, I use Danglefoot Polish Higitis Figitis to outline the half moon and add the additional stripes. I did this with a long striper brush. I love the subtle holo and shimmer of this polish. I can't wait to have it on my nails by itself. I sealed everything in with a customary lick of Seche Vite and here we are!
