Spice up your nails with Nailbox

Are you lazy with looking after your nails and are endlessly using the same polish over and over again? Then this is a monthly subscription box for you. Having been an avid nail polisher and a manicure sucker for years, I like to think I take care of my nails and follow substantial routines to ensure they are in the best condition. There are, however, other steps and products I'm yet to use, and that's where Nailbox comes in.

The first products out of the Nailbox are these polishes. Two being some of my most loved nail looks, pastel ones, and am also a sucker for just all white nails. It's a massive trend! You see it all over Instagram and Pinterest and honestly, I could be very happy to just use white all day every day, summer and winter. Both of the Nails inc and angelica polishes in this box I've used a few times already after receiving my box as they are perfect summer colours. I find that the nails inc polish wins in terms of longevity and only requires you to apply two coats, where as the angelica one needs three thin coats.

I've been testing out the True Brit nail enamel polishe since the day the box fell through my letterbox and it needed a separate paragraph all to itself, as it's so flippin good. It really hardens my nails which is great as mine aren't the strongest at all. After doing a comparison and wearing a coat of this on one hand, and the other without, the nails with the coating were substantially stronger and harder to touch and no breaking occurred throughout a week unlike the hand without. So thumbs up from me! This is a hybrid polish and is a normal nail colour however like it alone and as an underneath strengthener. Basically a two in one product. Win!

I've always been a Sally Hansen cuticle remover gal and have sworn by it for years, using it at least once every two weeks. Because I'd been so stuck in my ways, it was really nice to try the Nailberry balm as it's a different style of product for this tedious job and just helped to switch it up a bit. I rubbed it into my nail bed which softened up the cuticle to allow me to push it back and remove it (gross). I washed my hands after to make sure there wasn't any left before painting them and the result was great. It worked quickly at softening the cuticle and wasn't that time consuming like some of them that you need to wait 10 minutes to break it down. And the handy pot is great for traveling!

Something I've never really been into has been nail wraps. I instantly think more time, more hassle and I just honestly can't be bothered (when I think of the time it'll take to do both of your hands). But never thought of doing it for just one finger on each hand before, creating an accent / signature nail. Its a good idea to spice up your regular nail look, especially if you're someone like me who sticks to what they know and love all too much. I'm really into anything dalmatian print at the moment, so this jamberry wrap will definitely be used and I'm thinking as an accent with white or nude.

If you're a big fan of everything nails, then this is definitely the monthly subscription box for you. Containing full sized products as well as samples I really feel its worth the £13.50 a month with free postage (sign up here). The toe separators and the nail wraps were the only things I'm not big on, but will definitely give them a go anyway. That's whats good about monthly boxes, it gets you to try out products you wouldn't normally go for.

Have you tried this box before or any products inside the July one? Is this something you would like to try?

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

A November Book Haul

contains pr products, *aff My obsession with books and reading is still going strong guys! Since my post way back outlining how I was getting back into ready ... I think was back in 2018 and here we are. I've smashed my Goodreads goal of reading 50 books this year, and I'm actually closer to achieving 100 books read. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself but, I'd LOVE to get there. Anyway, books are a huge part of my life now. And even though I like everyone go through slumps where I don't want to read anything, when I am in the reading mood I normally have a few on the go at the same time and have turned into a big mood reader. Which I've found actually helps me get through books so much quicker.  As a member of the Book Break Insiders Influencer group, I am lucky enough to be sent a selection of books every month. Which helps to keep my nose is a book that's for sure! Book 1: The Silence by Don DeLillo* A timely and compelling novel about what ha

Cruelty Free Beauty | Brands and Product Favourites

Good day beauties! So, you guys have been messaging me here, there and everywhere about sharing my top cruelty free beauty products and brands with you.  And because my cruelty free living post did so well, guess what you guys have today?  You've guessed right! And I'm super happy to share with you some top beauty products and brands I reach for, but first I'd like to just share with you why going cruelty free is good.  For me, having a cruelty free lifestyle means not using anything containing animals or their by-products, or using products where animals have been mistreated and used for testing them, and is the way I wish I had chosen to live my life a long time ago. Make up and skincare are products are materialistic in my eyes. We want these things and like them, so I think it's so unfair for innocent animals to be used, killed, kept in awful conditions and tested on against their will just so we could have that new mascara. There's just no need for
