A little late coming to the party with this post, but I really wanted to show just how amazing the Coloristiq Monthly Manicure Boxes are!! They are truly a delivery of little presents 😀📦
I managed to snag the June box during the sale so I was lucky enough to pay just £11.99 for mine, although there was a delivery charge too.
Let’s cut to the chase, manly because I’m just to excited!!
My box arrived like this
So what did I get in my box. Well the theme was Festival & I really did get the epitome of festival colours. A blue, green & purple!
I’ll be honest when I first seen the colours I was abit disappointed anyone who knows me, knows my favourite colour is pink & in general I just love the girly things in life so these colours were abit of a shock…. And then I remembered why I bought the manicure box 💅
I’m currently OPI obsessed & quite brand loyal so I’ve decided now is the time to branch out & try other brands. However, if it was down to me I’d probebly just go out & buy only the pinks & glitters and that’s not really the aim of the game. Having the manicure box delivered to me with no control over its contents is the perfect solution. As I also try & do some form of nail art based on each colour it gives me a chance to try & stretch myself on colours I wouldn’t normally choose 😀 See, all around, thumbs up 👍
So this is the contents of my box
I still have yet to use these or have a reason anytime soon to wear them, in fact looking at them again they remind me of Christmas jumpers, roll on December because now I have a use for them. So unfortunately I can’t comment on their use but when I do try them out I’ll be sure to let you know.
Next we have a combined base/top coat
In my teenage years Sally Hanson was my go to for my problem nails! Their Nail Strengthener was amazing, spending £6 of my hard earned pocket money was a sacrifice I was willing to take for long nails – FYI, I’m a 90’s kids, £6 was ALOT back in the mid to late 90’s especially when you consider your average chocolate bar was around the 25p mark!!
I’ve heard great things about this base/top coat & a girl at work swears by it! I’m currently the owner of copious amounts of Nail Envy which I love so because I know I won’t be using this at least I know a good home it can go too 😀
Onto the colours… First up the China Glaze Colours. From the Electric Nights Collection I received ‘DJ Blue My Mind’ & ‘Violet Vibes’ I love both these colours!
Although it was only mini’s I received, A – they are the cutest thing ever! & B – it’s a good way to sample both a new brand & colour. I don’t hold anything nearly as bold as this currently in my vast polish collection. Which is a good point C – easy to store!
So what do they look like on?… Well here we are 😀
As you see they are glorious colours on the nail.
Up next was ‘Green Fields’ from the Models Own Festival Collection.
Lastly was an OPI glitter. This is meant to be from the Spotlight on Glitter Collection but I don’t have this??…. And I own EVERY OPI released last year including the majority of American releases!!
Turns out this is actually just a rename of Save Me from the Nicki Minaj Collection – bonus for me!! One of the reasons I nearly didn’t buy the box was because, as I said, I own the Spotlight on Glitter Collection, so the fact that what arrived was an OPI I didn’t own was a HUGE bonus!! 👍
Unfortunately I don’t have an example of this on my nails, it is after all glitter & we know what a pain that is too get off, plus I was too busy creating designs using colours only & specifically from this June Manicure Box.
So will I consider the July Box, absolutely! If my pennies allow…
I’ll leave you with my designs from this months colours, & if you did purchase the June box I hope you got just as excited about it as I did 😀 x
