September MeeBox Unboxing & Swatches - Pumpkin Spice

Hello! Today I have Septembers MeeBox to show you. I have both my unboxing and my swatches in a single post, instead of separately like usual (I just have too many ideas for October!). If you missed August's 'Boho' box, you can find my unboxing here, swatches here, and nail art look here. Septembers theme was 'Pumpkin Spice', which got me very excited! Read on for a look at everything and for full swatches!

Before I get into the swatches, here's a quick look at everything in September's box.

The first polish is Lauren B Beauty 'Nude No. 1', a soft creamy beige. The formula is a bit thin, and it was sheer and streaky on the first coat. However I did find that it built up surprisingly well on the second. I added a third to cover some minor streaking, but only really needed to do so on one nail. I like this a lot more than I expected to! Below is three coats and topcoat.

Next is Crabtee & Evelyn 'Clementine', a rich orange with a soft shimmer. You can't have pumpkin spice without an orange! The formula was smooth and easy to apply, although fairly sheer and streaky on the first coat. It evened out  with two, but I needed a third to cover my nail line. The shimmer is subtle but definitely there - it also softens the colour nicely. Below is three coats and topcoat.

Lastly we have Leighton Denny 'Venus Desire', a brown base full of what are described as 'rose gold shards', although these look more coppery in the brown base. The formula was smooth and easy to apply. This was almost a one coater. I did need a second to cover some minor bald spots, but that also gave more depth to the sparkle. Below is two coats and topcoat.

We also received a Bundle Monster clear stamper and stamping plate. The stamper has a short handle which is much easier to see through, and also came with a large Bundle Monster scraper. The plate (BM-S207) is full of little pictures and phrases suited to the fall season, I love it!

What do you think? Another amazing box from the MeeBox ladies! The polishes are perfect for autumn, and couldn't fit the pumpkin spice theme any better. I have already done my nail art for this month. Spoiler alert, but I used both the stamper and stamping plate, as well as all three polishes. Look out for that in my next post!
