MeeBox Galentines | Swatches, Nail Art and Review

furious filer meebox ambassador galentines nail subscription box review

Ah, Valentine's Day! The day where all the lovers in the world shower one another with gifts and spend the evening eating a romantic dinner by the candlelight. Yeah, who cares! This year, MeeBox invites you to celebrate Galentine's Day and I'm in! The January edit has everything you need for an epic pamper session with your girlfriends. Think painting nails, indulging in treatments and cocktails all day long. The latter, sadly, not included in the box. ;)

NCLA Friends Forever Duo* RRP £23

This box simply couldn't happen without a red polish in it. However, in this clever little set from NCLA, we also got a red jelly glitter with heart shapes in it! There is one condition, though. The girls at MeeBox made it very clear that this one is meant to be a gift for your bestie. I kind of have no choice anyway, it's a glitter so if I try to hide it from my mum, we *might* have a domestic.

In the pictures, I'm wearing 2 coats of the red 'Friends' and a layer of 'Forever' on top. There was no need to dab the glitter, it applied well just as you would apply any nail polish but I had to fish for the hearts. I used an orange stick to arrange them on my nails and sealed the look with a top coat.

Nails inc Hyde Park Place* RRP £11

A nice concrete grey. It was opaque in two coats and the formula was easy to work with so pretty much what you would expect from Nails inc. In the picture, I am wearing a layer of top coat.

Models Own Chrome Rose* RRP £4.99

I am totally in love with the entire chrome range so this is a nice addition to my collection. I usually use my chrome polishes for stamping and to be honest, I don't think I've ever worn it alone! Not that I don't like the look, but let's face it, most metallic polishes are streaky so I actually wasn't too keen on swatching this one, until...

Ta-dah! No streaks and the finish was so smooth. Absolutely loving this one! Just remember to shake the bottle well so you mix all the pigment together. Here I'm wearing 2 coats and a top coat.

Cuccio Milk & Honey Butter Blend (travel size)*

What's a girls night without a little pamper session, ey? MeeBox has you covered. This tube of body, feet and hand butter is perfect to sooth dry hands on the go and the nozzle makes it ideal to apply to your cuticles. I actually have a tub of this Cuccio butter at home and I have to say, it's been amazing for my hands in this cold weather we've been experiencing recently. I find it very moisturising and it leaves my skin plump and smelling amazing.

Lauren B Polishing Hand Scrub* RRP £15

I was first introduced to Lauren B polish in the September's Pumpkin Spice Latte box so I was excited to try their hand care range. The scent of this scrub was lovely, very 'botanical' and it reminded me of the Liz Earle skincare that I use regularly. Now, the beads are what I want to talk about. As we all know, scrubs exfoliate and remove dead cells with the gentle help of granules such as oatmeal or sugar, to name a few. But this scrub contained OIL beads that were dissolving as I was massaging the product into my hands! It meant that the whole process wasn't scratchy and it left my hands feeling supple and pampered. Loving this scrub!


'Metallic Ruffian'

The colour palette in this box made me feel like going for something classy so I free handed a rose gold ruffian onto my red nails. I love this design, it's so elegant.

'A Heart or Two'

Let's face it, the Galentines edit wouldn't be complete without at least one heart or two. Or 20. I couldn't help it and I love the metallic outlines too!

I am totally in love with the box this month and what a cute idea to get an extra gift that you can pass on to your bestie! This winter has been deadly for my hands and nails and I am seriously looking forward to a much needed pamper session. I may have to say bye-bye to the glitter but girls night or not, I ain't sharing the rest with anybody. Soz, mum!

What did you think about the box this month? The February theme is 'GATSBY' just in time for the award season! If you want to get your hands on the box, make sure you head over to MeeBox's website  and subscribe.
