NailBox Review

nailbox review

In our quest to find the best beauty boxes in the UK, we invite the glamorous ladies from The Dreamettes to open up the NailBox to see what we can expect from this monthly nail colour box.

​The Dreamettes are a Motown & Soul Performing Trio who tour across the country to perform at special events, parties and festivals. Check out the girls backstage to see what they think of the NailBox.

What is NailBox?

NailBox delivers 3-4 nail colours plus a handy nail tool every month for £15. You can cancel at any time or if you like the box you can commit to 3, 6 or 12 month subscription, this gives you a 50p-£1.50 saving per box respectively.

Elegant Touch Professional Cuticle Pusher and Nail Cleaner

Elegant Touch Professional Cuticle Pusher and Nail Cleaner. RRP : £9.50

​Whats in the Box?

​The May 2015 NailBox contained the following :


​Rimmel 60 Seconds Lucky Lilac - RRP £4.95

​Love this colour and it really does dry in 60 seconds. The brush also makes it super easy to apply as its just a little bit wider then usual.

Nicole by OPI Alex by the Brooks - RRP : £7.99

​This is pastel mint in colour and although we liked the colour, it did take 3-4 coats before we had a decent coverage. Bit thin and streaky compared to the Rimmel. 

Essie Status Symbol

Essie Status Symbol - RRP : £7.99

​This is a beautiful summer colour on both tips and toes. It is a gorgeous pink colour and applies well.

Orly Fiery Orange

Orly Fiery Orange - RRP :  £9.50

​Fiery Orange by Orly Color Blast is a stunning pumpkin orange polish bursting with differently shaped sparkly glitters .


​The RRP of all 5 items in the May box came to just under £40! The price of the NailBox is just £15, saving you £25 off the high street RRP price.


We found the NailBox great value for what you get. You might be able to find the colours at a similar price to NailBox if you shopped around, but our opinion is save your time and treat yourself to a surprise box every month without the hassle.

For an extra saving you could share the costs with a friend and share 1 box a month. However, having 4 colours just for yourself means that at least one colour will be out of your normal comfort zone, we think this is a good thing and would encourage you to play around with colours that you probably wouldn't have thought of buying before.
