Introducing Nailbox: The UK's First Exclusively Nails Subscription Box

Nailbox Subscription Review

Nailbox is the Nail Polish Addict's answer to those popular beauty subscription boxes that you never really felt were made for you. They seem to be cropping up everywhere but I've never seen a nails only one in the UK- until now. Nailbox only launched last month so it's all very new and exciting! I've been lucky enough to get an early look at May's Nailbox before it goes out to subscribers on May 21st.

Il Etait Un Vernis: Once Upon a Time Collection Swatches

Once Upon a Time Nail Polish Collection

Once Upon A Time is the debut collection from Il Etait Un Vernis, the indie brand launched by two fabulous french nail bloggers - Vernis en Folie and De tout et de Rien. The brand launched in late 2014 and has gone from strength to strength with 2 further colour collections and a nail care range added to the roster since. What really draws me to this brand is the fascinating finishes and 'something for everyone' approach to each collection.

Every polish from Il Etait Un Vernis is 5-free and vegan. Designed in France and manufactured in Australia, I can safely say this is one of the most stunning collections I've ever seen. All 5 of these shades took my breath away when I first laid eyes on them. There are 4 scattered holographic polishes plus a sparkling gold (also holographic) glitter. The holos all have a jelly-like consistency which makes them incredibly glossy and smooth to apply while the glitter is dense enough to provide full coverage or perfect worn over another shade as a topper. Let's take a closer look...
