SO MANY ‘S’s… ANYWAY. This month I subscribed for a small UK beauty box called YouBeauty which is £6.95 including postage and you choose your two main products and get some small samples too. I have been wanting to try a subscription box for a while and this one happened to be within my budget. I am not reviewing the box today as such but I will say that I really enjoyed receiving mine, the process was quick and simple. Can’t wait for next months.
One of the items I chose for my box was an Essie magnetic polish from their snake/reptile collection. I initially hoped I would get the green one (which I believe is called Crocodilly) but I actually received a lovely berry hued one called Sssssexy. I had heard mixed reviews about these polishes and the magnetic trend seemed to be over and quickly as it started but even if the magnetic didn’t work out I thought this was a great colour.
Application was lovely and buttery and as you can see there is very little in the way of brushstroke issue.
These aren’t quite perfect but I found the magnetic ok to work with although it is not the best designed in terms of preventing you from dropping it onto the polish. I did find the pattern came out strongly and quickly – I love the vampyness and the depth of this snake skin effect. I didn’t feel the need to start again on any of the nails. The finish is smooth and glossy but as ever use a healthy coat of topcoat to protect your mani!
These polishes are currently on Fragrance Direct for just £2.50 each so I will definitely be stocking up on the rest of the collection soon 😀 love them. So quick and easy, yet so eye catching!
Personal note: sorry for the lack of posts this week things have gone a bit crazy here with lots of projects on the go and my juggling skills are being put to the test. Hope you’re all well!!
