Meebox Born This Way swatches and review

Hey guys! Hope you had a great bank holiday weekend. It's always nice to have that extra days isn't it? I spent it relaxing and catching up on my blog posts and it feels so good to have some scheduled now :)

On to today's post and we have the most recent Meebox from August, Born This Way. This is an extra special box as it's Meebox's 2nd birthday so a Lady GaGa themed box is ideal. We are all born the way we are so why not celebrate that?!

So inside the box we have 3 polishes, some custom made decals and Meebox's own nail varnish remover. 

First up is Pure Energy by Color Club. A bright blue with a lovely subtle shimmer. I got this opaque in two coats and minimal brush streaks.

Etiquette by True Britt London is a stunning pinky/purple iridescent polish. It is a more sheer polish and it was opaque in three coats.

Last but not least is the amazing I Love You Hunny Bunny from 'Ard As Nails. This really makes me think of the song Lady Gaga sung with Beyonce, Telephone! It's a stunning deep purple holo and is opaque in just one coat.

I went out the day I had this polish on and I didn't know if I would be back in time for the sun to be in the right position in my house for a good sun shot. So like any other nail addict I took the polish out with me haha! So as I was sat in my Grans car waiting for my mum to hop in I grabbed a quick sun shot lol got to be done as this is a stunner! 

The "Grape" Escape is a acetone free, scented nail varnish remover by the girls at Meebox. To me it still smells like nail polish remover, which doesn't bother me, and it works just the same. I soaked a cotton pad and held it onto my nail with some pressure and after a little while, pulled the pad towards the tip of my nail. As you can see it removed the polish down to the nail so I just needed to clean the rest in the same way. 

So I had this vision in my head of some accent nail with shards of polish to mimic the shards of colour on the theme card but is just turned out crap haha! I think I did them a bit thick unfortunately but it was tricky to cut them! I also stamped Girl Boss as I wanted to do a little dedication to Gaga and also the Meebox ladies! As each one of them is a Girl Boss and they are awesome. Sorry ladies that this mani turned out rubbish but the thought was there :)
I also used a unicorn from the Rockin Claws decals. It was really easy to apply and stuck the the nail well.

As I wasn't happy with my nail art mani I created with all the items, I tried again and I loved these!! I used a MoYou London plate that wasn't in the box, Minimal 02, and stamped some images and then coloured them in with all three polishes. The base is Blanc Out by China Glaze. 

The purple and blue just looks awesome together don't you think?!
