meebox nail subscription box review furious filer moyou

Happy New Year! Did you all have a good night? I'm pretty sure my neighbours spent a year's worth of wages on fireworks so I had a pretty amazing view. Now that you have (hopefully) cured your hangover, let's talk about some unfinished business from 2016, the December Meebox review! This time the goodies in the box were inspired by the Wizard of Oz and we got 7 products as opposed to the usual 5, just in time for Christmas! I think I need to confess something before I start with the review....I might be the only person on the planet who hasn't in fact watched the Wizard of Oz. I kinda get the idea now (thank you, Wikipedia!) but surprisingly, googling the Wizard of Aus didn't get me anywhere. Yep, I know, clueless! Now that that's off my chest, let's have a look at the box's contents.

Leighton Denny Jailbird*

An absolutely stunning turquoise with an oil sleek finish. I was somehow expecting it to be sheer but it was almost a one coater. Here I'm wearing 2 coats and a top coat. The formula was a little tricky but the picture exaggerates the streaks because of the super intense brightness in my light box.

Zoya Goldie*

A yellow gold shade that is slightly on the sheer side. The finish is similar to Jailbird's* but a with a lot more shimmer to it. In the picture I'm wearing 2 coats and a top coat.

Kure Bazaar Pigalle*

This is the first time I came across Kure Bazaar and I have to say, I'm very happy to see a glitter polish in the box as I don't own many. This red glitter consists of small and bigger round pieces suspended in a very delicate red jelly. The glitter distribution was very even but I sponged it on for a full coverage. I applied 2 layers of top coat for a smooth finish. Tap the red shoes and you can go home, right?! Yeah, back to Australia, I mean, Kansas.

NCLA Gingham Wraps* 

I must say, me and wraps don't *really* get on. I can't help it, my nails are just too curved! Having said that, I tested these out on one of my nails and there was only one small bump right at the tip where my nails curve the most. They were super easy to use and I am no expert in any way when it comes to wraps so it's saying something. They also come with a small file to get rid of the excess product. The gingham pattern is adorable and don't take my word for it but *I think* it's supposed to represent...the girl's dress? What's her face, um, Dorothy! Oh, this is not going very well. Bad, BAD Ambassador!

'Ard as Nails Cuticle Oil*

My nails took a battering this winter and I have been oiling like crazy trying to salvage the situation. As you can imagine, a cuticle oil in the box was music to my ears! I really like the packaging and the lip gloss applicator. It's so much easier to keep it in your bag without spilling. I find the oil to be slightly more 'dry' than some other ones I've tried but it makes it perfect to use on the go because it doesn't leave your hands greasy. I can't quite figure out what the scent is, but it's kinda sweet and reminds me of candy.

MoYou London Fairytale 12 Plate*, Stamper* and Scraper*

This plate has, according to my very limited knowledge, everything you need to create a perfect Wizard of Oz mani! It has the Emerald City, all the main characters and even the flying monkey. Bet you didn't expect me to know that last one, did you! It is right though....right? <nervous laugh> On a serious note, MoYou London are my absolute favourite stamping plates. The stamps transfer well and I love the patterns and themes they come up with. It's so awesome to see MeeBox teaming up with such an amazing brand! The stamper is soft but not marshmallowy so it doesn't 'spread' and distort the image when stamping. The scraper is actually my favourite of all time. I lost one of these a while ago and I have to say, none have really come close to this one. It's amazing! I love the 'handle' as I always know where to pick it up without leaving polish all over my hands. This seriously usually drives me up the wall!

Gradient Nail Art 

Time for nail art! I feel like I haven't done any gradients in a while so I combined the two shades and topped it off with a bit of stamping. I am soooo in love this design!

What did you think about the box? I thought it was amazing, not to mention the girls have really treated us this time with box of goodies worth £65! Btw, if you haven't heard of Meebox (seriously?!) it's a subscription box for all of us that love nails. Every month a box is delivered to you with 5 nail products; 3 nail polishes and 2 nail accessories. All the goodies correspond with a theme which have been pretty awesome so far!

  1. Loved reading this review & it was made all the more amazing because of the fact you hadn't seen The Wizard of Oz. I have to admit to only watching it once or twice when I was younger, it's been many years since I saw it & im in no rush to do so again. I loved your nail art, it looks like a tattoo!
    Happy New Year lovely.

    1. Thank you, Vicky! I am probably the only person alive who hasn't seen it haha!

  2. Your nails are stunning! I wish I had that much control! Sadly my nails are naff... but my mum who has amazing nails would love to receive one of these! I think you may have just helped me out with her birthday present! Thanks!
