Pretty & Polished Beauty Box - June 2016

Disclosure: This is a press sample, all opinions are my own.

What is Pretty and Polished?: Pretty and Polished is an indie nail polish brand that also sells bath & body products, nail vinyls, and this Beauty Box! This is a box that you get to choose which months you want to get, rather than a subscription that you have to cancel or skip. Just remember to buy it each month if you want to continue!

How Much is Pretty and Polished Beauty Box?: Pretty and Polished Beauty Box is only $22.00/month! Each box contains a coupon that could be 10% off or $5.00 off to use in the store as well, which means you can get more polish and products from this amazing maker. You can buy for 1, 3, 6, or 12 months at a time, and the boxes are cheaper at 6 months!

There is less than a week until this box closes, so grab it before it's gone!



Extras included a Mani Melt and vinyls from YouPolish. I admit, I'm hoping for a mermaid box to get some more mermaid vinyls from her!

This box also included Pretty & Polished's Stick Em Up Base Coat. I love trying out different brands' treatments, so this is a great addition!


Somerset - A purple creme full of glitters, including yellow, green, red, and blue of different sizes.


Shown is two coats of Somerset. The glitters in the first coat do get mostly covered if you do a second layer. It's entirely possible to use only one coat, I did at fist and added the second to see the effect as a crelly - which I learned it isn't.


I added a single layer of glossy top coat, but it will take more than that to smooth out all of the glitters. I'm not one that minds texture, so it isn't a big deal to me.



Just Green and Bear It - First, love the pun! This is a green base with holographic microglitters. 


I just can't find the words to describe how much I love this polish. It's one of the best I've ever used, plain and simple. I used two coats to add some depth (and maybe because it's so gorgeous I needed more than one coat).


There is texture in this polish as well, but it's definitely worth it! I used one coat of glossy top coat to add a ton of shine!

Overall I loved this box beyond belief. It's the perfect polishes and I'm still wearing Just Green and Bear It! The Stick Em Up Base Coat is great to hold your polish on for even longer (and to block staining)!

As always, let me know what you thought of this box in the comments!
