Hitched MeeBox: Nail Art and Review

What makes you feel like you've treated yourself? As I'm currently down with the flu, I have to say a massive pile of sweets is doing it for me! But what else? Some girls like to take a nice bath, have an online shopping session or have lunch with friends. And then some girls get MeeBox. If you got your hands on this month's 'Hitched'* themed box (and I know a few of my followers did because I'm a stalker;) then I think you'll agree that the MeeBox girls have outdone themselves this time! I couldn't believe my eyes as I kept pulling out treat after treat and my voice was getting strangely high pitched (I totally blame it on my sore throat).

'Hitched' MeeBox* had so many goodies inside I struggled to cram it all in one picture! For the record, I am very comfortable having these kind of problems :D As I kept rummaging for my treats in the beautifully wrapped box, my eyes were just getting bigger and bigger! All the products work so well with the 'Hitched' theme. I don't care if you're attending a royal wedding this summer, this box has everything to get your nails ready whether you're a bride, a bridesmaid or a guest! Let's have a look!

Leighton Denny 'Breakfast in Bed''* (RRP £11)

It's a lovely rose nude with a golden hue that's visible when the polish catches the light. It applies very smoothly and (bearing in mind it's a shimmery polish) it leaves no streaks. Here I'm wearing two coats for full opacity. It reminds me of OPI 'Humidi-tea' but thanks to the hint of rose, this polish works so much better with my skin tone.

Mavala French Manicure Kit - Pink (RRP £13.50)

Whether a French Manicure is your thing or not, I think we can agree that it has and will be the number one nail design chosen by brides all over the world until the end of time! I have recently done it myself and I have to say I wish I had waited and done it with this pink set! The pink base gives my nails a really healthy look and the colour itself (Riga*) wasn't streaky at all. I was a bit surprised by the White* as it was very opaque and there I was, expecting something rather sheer! I've created a delicate bridal design using the entire set (including tip guides* and a Minute Quick-Finish top coat*) and a lace stamp from the Bundle Monster plate*.

Bundle Monster + Elleandish plate* (RRP £3.50)

This plate has my name written all over it! It's absolutely stunning! It's an XL plate so it should work for you even if you have very long or wide nails. It features 12 patterns, mostly geometric, love and lace designs and I just adore them all! I ALMOST bought a lace plate the other day but I stopped myself just before I clicked 'buy'. Don't look at me like that, I was so proud of my self-control! I then proceeded to add it to my wish list for later. Well, that's just bloody typical.

Anyway, I hope that explains why I've done another lace design! I created a negative space half moon using Leighton Denny 'Breakfast in Bed'* and French tip guides*. I stamped a lace design over it with Mavala White* as it's very opaque and perfect for stamping!

Clear Jelly Stamper (+ two scrapers)* (RRP £7.99) 

I just died and went to nail heaven! I've said before that a clear stamper was the best nail art invention ever, and if anything, this Clear Jelly Stamper* only reinforced my view! It's perfect for positioning your stamps exactly where you want them on your nails so the design possibilities are endless. It's also a lot firmer than my current clear stamper from BPS* (reviewed here) and I'm really happy about it. I find firm stampers easier to work with. I used it for all the stamping done in this post and it has become THE stamper for me. Thank you, MeeBox! <3

I have also, for the first time ever, used a soft, credit card-like scraper*. I'm sure there was a reason as to why I never tried it before? Anyone? Nope, no idea, but I'm definitely a convert. It's a lot larger so I can just use every side for swiping as I go and clean it up once I'm finished. Perfect!

Miss Cat Nails Stickers* ( + a discount code) (RRP £1.99)

Last but not least we have some silver metallic stickers. The sheet features swirly lines and damask patterns. They are very easy to work with and stick very firmly to the nail. Another great thing is that they don't dissolve under a layer of top coat! I was worried they might become glittery as opposed to metallic but I can report that they have not changed. I used them in my last design along with French tip guides* and Mavala White*. I'm really into the negative space thing at the moment!

So there you have it, a full content of the recent 'Hitched' MeeBox* worth a whopping £37.98! A one off box will cost you £20 so you do the math. No seriously, you do the math as that has never been my strongest point! All I know is that this, in my opinion, has been the best MeeBox so far and I'm so happy that I got to try it! 

What do you think about it? Did you get your hands on this one? If you're interested in previous MeeBoxes here are my reviews of the Kawaii*, Red Carpet* and Blackberry Margaritathemes.
