July MeeBox - Rio

Hello! Welcome back to another MeeBox unboxing. If you missed last months 'Splash' box, you can see it's contents here (you can also find my swatches here, and nail art look here). The theme for July is 'Rio', inspired by the city's carnivals, beaches, and the olympics. My first thoughts were bright greens and yellows - and we got both! Read on for a closer look at everything inside.

First up is Models Own 'Luis Lemon', a blinding neon yellow from the Ice Neon collection. I do already have a bottle of this but shamefully (as with 'Gloriana' last month), I haven't actually worn it yet. I'm interested to find out if this needs a white base or not.

Next up is Morgan Taylor 'Later Alligator', a bold green creme. I think I only have two other Morgan Taylor polishes, although I've always been interested in them! I've also been really drawn to greens recently so I'm looking forward to trying this out.

The last polish this month is Trust Fund Beauty 'Denim With Diamonds', a deep blue full of light blue shimmer. This is a completely new brand to me which is always fun! The bottle itself is massive, holding 17ml of polish.

Our first extra is a Tweexy nail polish holder. I've always been intrigued by these - I'm not sure I'd use it all the time, but it will definitely be fun to have a play around. I also like to think that the lovely MeeBox ladies specifically got blue ones to fit the Rio theme.

Last up are some nail decals from another brand I've never heard of, IZ Beauty of London. We received a sheet of the 'Pastel Paradise' design. The colourful flowers fit this months theme really well, and I love the birds!

What do you think? As always, MeeBox have treated us to high quality brands, and the value for money is amazing (the Tweexy on it's own is £15!). Everything definitely screams Rio to me. All three polish colours together make up the Brazilian flag - how more on theme could you get?! I already have ideas for some fun Rio manis!

Hope to see you in the next post!

  2. Ooh - I can't wait to find out how that neon yellow goes on. If it has an even halfway decent formula it looks like a must have!
