You may have seen my review of the July Nailbox last month, my first subscription box and I was very impressed with it. Around the same time I saw a new one (Nailbox UK is also still pretty new I believe) called MeeBox. Well I had to give this one a go as well so today I had the lovely surprise (well ok it wasn’t a surprise but shush) of getting both my August Nailbox (to be reviewed shortly) and the very first MeeBox. I will do a comparison post but for now I just wanted to get the contents out there and show just what MeeBox does.
As with the Nailbox, MeeBox is going to be despatched once a month in a limited supply and will contain 3 – 4 polishes and 1 – 2 tools. The box is sent out for around the 22nd of each month so a lovely little surprise will appear shortly after! You can sign up from the first of each month when the theme will be revealed (but not the contents). I’ll update this post when I can with the subscription rates as it’s not currently showing on their site; I went for the one month one this time around which was £20.00 (just spotted you can do 3 months for £54.00). From what I can work out buying everything in here seperately would be around £25.00 plus you get a tracked parcel that you can view on the Hermes courier website so it has worked out as a nice saving.
So on to the haul! Quite a nice little mix here, the black squares are actually 30 palm tree vinyls/stencils though you can’t make that out on the photo. There are 3 swatch sticks – I would have used them to swatch the 3 polishes but I prefer my swatches on hands, something never looks quite right on the sticks. The small bottle is a sample size of CND Solar Oil, a nail and cuticle oil that my friend has recently tried the Intense version of and she is loving it. Finally we have the three polishes – Color Club’s “Disco Dress”, Model’s Own “Turquoise Gloss” and China Glaze’s “Flip Flop Fantasy”. I got some quick swatches done, please excuse any lumpy bits as the latex I use for easy peel swatches has glitter in it and I was in a rush too!
I can’t wait to get doing some proper nail art with these, I may have to put the palm trees on over this Turquoise Gloss. A very promising start from MeeBox. Has anyone else received one? Let me know what your thoughts are on the box.
