Hey guys, the March 2018 MeeBox had a sweet theme in the form of everyone’s favourite treat; DONUTS!
The box included four polishes and two accessories so let’s take a closer look at the goodies that lay within:
This polish is the perfect base for any donut design! It’s got a nice formula that is opaque in two coats.
A perfect mint green polish. I find this formula slightly more tricky to work with as it’s a peel off formula, but it isn’t bad at all, definitely still workable and worked well enough with my nail art!
The perfect name for a beautiful polish – it absolutely reminds me of cake fondant! A really lovely formula and opaque with two coats.
A great formula for adding detail to nail art. Super opaque and a great idea to have a brush as well as a pen to work with.
A generous amount of nail pearls that are a great size for more intricate nail art designs.
NCLA Donut Nail Wraps
A good variety of easy to apply nail wraps, perfect for this box’s theme!
For my nail art I HAD to do a delicious drip design to imitate the donut glaze coating the donuts when they’re fresh baked! I started with two coats of Cappuccino and waited for it to completely dry as I was using nail vinyls next.
I grabbed my drip nail vinyls and stuck them to each nail one at a time before adding a coat of either Cake or Ripple and them removed immediately so that the design would stay as crisp as possible.
Once they had dried, I used the nail art pen to add some white lines, to mimic sprinkles, and then alternated with some of the nail pearls on the other nails to create a different look and texture.
Once everything was done, I gave them a coat of Seche Vite to keep everything all sealed in nicely.
I really quite enjoyed the nail art I managed to create with this box, I had fun doing it and these are polishes I definitely feel I’ll use again, especially as I feel they are summer colours!
The only disappointment in this box for me were the nail wraps as they’re not something I use very often, so I’ll be donating those, but everything else was a hit so, overall, a great box!
