May Nailbox Review with swatches - a beauty subscription box that's nails only!

Ok, so beauty subscription boxes aren't anything new and I remember when they first came out I found it really exciting but over time I realised I'm a bit too picky to ever subscribe to them long term. I tend to do a lot of research before I buy beauty products and I know the kinds of things I like which mean I ended up wasting or giving away product regularly.

But the latest beauty subscription box from nailbox is right up my street - 5 nail products delivered every month for £13.50-£15 depending on your subscription which is great value! They only launched in April so are pretty new and offer a range of different subscription types - month to month, 3 month prepay, 6 month prepay or 12 month prepay and obviously it works out cheaper the more you buy at once.

You're guaranteed to receive 5 mystery items and this will include 3 or 4 nail polishes and 1 or two nail tools. The other good thing is that subscribers get 15% off at if you want to order a backup of your shade or the same nail polish in a different shade. Y'know, just in case you didn't quite have enough nail polish at this point!

I received the May nailbox for review which included:

  • ORLY Fiery Orange Color Blast nail polish
  • Rimmel Lucky Lilac nail polish
  • Essie Status Symbol nail polish
  • Nicole by OPI Modern Family Alex by the Books nail polish
  • Elegant Touch Cuticle Pusher and Nail Cleaner

I liked all of the products I was sent, however the Nicole by OPI polish is probably one of my least favourite colours so I haven't even swatched that. Swatches are bwloe (ORLY Fiery Orange is work over Essie Status Symbol)
All of the polishes are full size and good quality, all of them were easy to use. Based on this box I'd definitely be happy to subscribe and receive polishes each month as it's really good value, particularly good if you're trying to build up your polish collection or are maybe new to blogging and needing some polishes to review. I think there is a colour for everyone there and the tool I received will always be useful.

The packaging isn't quite as glam as I've seen with other subscription boxes but it's functional and I guess it's a good lesson - it's what's inside that counts ha!

You can subscribe to nailbox here - the next box will be coming out on 21st June, you can peek at what's come here!

P.S. Nailbox are looking to recruit someone for what I think is probably the best job in the world - Nail Tester! You basically review nail polishes for a living...amazing!


  1. This is such a good idea because it gives you a chance to try out new nail products that you may never have heard of before!

  2. OMG I love your blog
    i'd love it if you could check out my blog and follow if you like it

  3. i love this idea
