I've got a beauty box to review today (exciting)! Danielle from Vegan Cuts got in touch with me to review their nail beauty box and I mean who could resist?
Vegan Cuts is a beauty box that is dedicated in providing cruelty free nail products, all in which is bound together in a neat little package. You can visit their website here to see what they're all about!
Let's dig into the review of this beauty box - i'll start by visually unwrapping it all for you!
Everything came packaged neatly in this box stuffed with some awesome zigzag shredded paper and 2 business cards.
These are all the items in the beauty box. I'm impressed with the amount of nail products you receive in this beauty box. I have seen some others floating around with fewer nail goodies.
This beauty box included the following things:
+ 2 full sized nail polishes
+ 2 mini sized nail polishes (one thermal polish)
+ A set of nail wraps
+ Vegan Cuts nail file
+ Cuticle balm
+ Nail wipes
Here we have the mini sized thermal polish by Black Sheep. It is a baby blue polish that shifts to white when under high heat. In the pictures you can see a slight difference in colour, but when run over hot water, it becomes white. I had a bit of issues when applying this one - it was thick and gloopy, the kind that pulls off the nail when brushed over the same spot more than once. It was even-ish at 2 coats and required light strokes for application.
This polish would have to be my surprise favourite! It looked extremely ordinary in the bottle, but when applied is so bright and summery. This is the JRJ nail polish and it's a orange/red coral. This applied like a dream and was opaque after 2 coats. Definitely a winner for me!
This is one of the mini sized nail polishes which wasn't labelled with a name, but it has what looks like a 'C' on the label. Similar to the Black Sheep polish, this formula was also thick and gloopy and had the same application issues. Shame because it is a bright and beautiful pinky red jelly polish with gold shimmer. Pictures show 2 coats and a third for touch ups.
This polish is by 'adorn' in the colour Vive Le Coquette. This is a bit of a dusty barbie pink creme polish, with perfect application - applied like a dream! It's a girly colour that I think would suit all skin types.
Here I've used one of the nail wraps by SoGlossy on my ring finger to test it out. I'm not a huge fan of nail wraps because they are extremely difficult to wrap around my nails (if you aren't aware, my nails are curvy in all directions!). These nail wraps required some heating up with a hair drier before application, which I think helped it be more flexible. This applied OK on my nails, better than I expected, but still a tad wrinkly on the sides. Removal with the hair drier or warm water was extremely easy.
The nail file is a fun girly print and is gentle on your nails - it's not extremely coarse, so it won't damage your nails. One of my other favourite items was the Lip Glosserie cuticle balm - good god this stuff is amazing and smells amazing! It is not greasy and is so easy to apply. They say good things come in small sizes :)
Overall, I like this beauty box - you get 4 bottles of nail polishes to try out (all 5-free and cruelty free) and a bunch of other nail goodies to try as well. I love the concept of a beauty box for just nails! I have searched the web for any nail beauty boxes and I can honestly say that not all of them provide nearly as much nail products as this one. Definitely one to try out!
