July Rio Meebox Review

July Rio Meebox Review

Did anyone watch the Olympics Opening Ceremony last night?? If you’re wondering why I’m asking July’s Meebox was Rio themed! I was really impressed with last months box and I am also with this month but the colours aren’t as wearable for me personally – they’re great don’t get me wrong, I just wouldn’t have picked them out usually.IMG_0146

Again this month we got 3 full size polishes and 2 other items to go along with them. Let’s start with the Tweexy! I haven’t actually used mine yet but I’m curious as to whether it’s going to help with my application! A Tweexy would normally cost you £14.95 to buy from Amazon.

Deco It: Pastel Paradise nail decals – RRP £4July Rio Meebox ReviewI love the theme of these, with Meebox obviously trying to incorporate the Brazilian rainforest into the box. I have yet to try these yet either but I can’t wait to use some of the flowers, especially the mint and purple ones! I have had a little peel of one of them though and they seem pretty thin so probably won’t feel awkward on the nails.

Models Own: Luis Lemon – RRP £4.99July Rio Meebox Review

This is from the Ice Neon Collection and it is SUPER bright, it’s hard to capture. This shows 3 coats and it’s still a little sheer but I think it would really pop over a white base! A colour perfect for tans too I reckon.

Trust Fund: Denim with Diamonds – RRP £11July Rio Meebox ReviewA gorgeous sparkly a blue number with 2 thin coats still showing the smile lines, 3 would have been perfect. It applies well but I’m not a huge fan of the shape of the bottle as it means the brush ‘stem’ is really long and a little awkward to work with! I’ve never used or even heard of Trust Fund Beauty though so it’s nice to discover a new brand. I can’t seem to find this polish on their website though but they have a lot of other colours on there.

Morgan Taylor: Later Alligator – RRP £11IMG_0136

Sorry for the dodgy cuticles, I’d done a lot of swatching/nail art this day and they’d gone a bit dry! Anyway I quite like this green polishes, as far as greens go! This is 2 coats but it was almost a 1 coater.

I used these 3 colours to create a ‘Rio’ based nail art for the Olympics this year! I was inspired by the little info card that was in the box and by the Brazilian flag. I haven’t done a step by step this time but it’s pretty self explanatory as I just sponged on the 3 colours and then painted the Brazilian flag using detail brushes.

The RRP total for this months box is… £56.94 and I only pay £20 for my subscription! I can’t wait to see what next month has to offer. Meebox gave us a hint with the theme being Boho!

  1. Lovely post and I think your nail art is so good. I love the pink finger, it’s such a cute look. I love these colours and def agree that Luis Lemon looks better over white.
    Next month should be exciting, I wonder what they’ll post us?!
