Happy Mani Monday! My July Pretty & Polished Beauty Box arrived last week and I was super excited because one of the polishes glows in the dark. I didn’t add on any additional polishes like I did last month but there are a ton of summer releases that I really want so I will definitely be using the 15% coupon code included with this months box. Every month there are 2 full-size exclusive polishes, 2 minis, and some extra goodies. Here’s what came for July:
Bioluminescence is a blue jelly with blue glitter that is beautiful on it’s own, but bonus – it glows in the dark! I wasn’t sure what to expect texture wise but it applied very beautifully and while I wasn’t a fan of the matte finish, I added a coat of Seche Vite and it didn’t affect the glow in the dark effect at all. Pictures are with 3 coats.
I had a really hard time photographing this one. Mintabie is a raspberry jelly with a ton of blue and purple glitter. It is extremely thick and was difficult for me to apply, I had a feeling it would look better over another polish and Refined and Polished proved that with her swatch. I’ll definitely give this another run sometime trying to use less glitter.
Hubble Trouble and Nova Say Nova
Refined and Polished has some beautiful swatches of these samples – both are gorgeous polishes, though they aren’t something I’d typically reach for in the summer – I look forward to trying them in the fall!
This month’s box also had a sample of Pretty & Polished’s soon to be released Vanilla Mint Sea Salt Foot Soak, a nail brush, emery board, 3d nail accessory, and some water decals.
Once again I am very happy with this box and I look forward to seeing what we get next month! All Pretty & Polished lacquers are cruelty free and 3-free (Free of Dibutyl Phthalate, Formaldehyde, and Toluene). If you are interested in ordering, all the information you need is here. at $22 USD within the USA and $30 for international (worked out to about $33 Canadian) including shipping it is a fantastic deal!
