Nail the Mail September box review

Here's something you don't see on my blog every day: a review! When I was invited to try out one of the Nail the Mail boxes, I got to know the company and awesome lady behind it a little bit. I knew I had to feature this box on my blog! Click to see more!

See, Nail the Mail focuses on European indie brands. Since I'm a European girl, and I know how hard it is to get your brand to take off in this neck of the woods, I'm all for showing off some amazing European polishes and getting you all to say YES to Europe!

Every month, there's two new boxes: an indie box with two indie polishes, and a mixed box with three polishes (indie and main stream). You won't know what's in them before you receive them! That's the whole fun of getting a surprise!

Each month has an extra, and this month I found a lovely glass nail file in my package.

I wouldn't be me if I didn't spruce up each swatch with a little bit of nail art :) And each of them has its own video tutorial!

Paws by Eddie - Da Firenze

This is a box exclusive for the September Nail the Mail box! The only way to get your hands on it (or under it, so to speak) is to buy one of the LAST boxes remaining!

Paws by Eddie is Dutch (like meeee!), and I've worked with this brand before, so I'm familiar with her impeccable taste in polish.
The first coat was a bit streaky but it came together so nicely with a thin second coat! I'd classify the holo as a medium strength holo, it's not a full on rainbow explosion in the sun but it's definitely visible.
And oh. My. Polish gods. This one is a STUNNER in matte! Look at that! The holo disappears but it leaves a beautiful soft, delicate finish and I just want to.... AHHHH.....

Oh and aren't we totally in love with that little kitty charm on the bottle that also functions as a little swatch? SO cute!

Appeal 4 - Lucky Robin

Another European brand, and one I must admit I'd never heard of before this, is Appeal4. It's a Danish brand that has happily surprised me! This polish is very opaque, and it was already nearly opaque with just one coat. Now I'm not one for reds, but I must say it's starting to win me over.
How super romantic is this couple <3 It looks like they're standing in the rain, under a street light, sharing an intimate moment with warm fuzzy feelings, hihi ;-)

I loved experimenting with more detail in my silhouettes. I really feel like it adds depth to the otherwise standard black figures.
This is just a deep, warm red polish that has me in the mood for fall. And speaking of fall, you will want to see the amazing stamping match-up that Greedy Nails did with Lucky Robin, trust me, you'll love it ;-)

Have I got you hooked? You won't regret it! I would only put my faith in a sub box if I knew it was handled with the utmost care and professionalism.

Now go on and order your Nail the Mail box(es)! You can buy a one-time box, or sub for multiple months, whichever you prefer. You can choose the indie or mixed box, or go totally crazy and order both! The two different boxes don't have polishes in common so if you order one of each, you'll have 5 different polishes. I LOVE this idea so much!!

I received the Nail the Mail September box as a press sample for an honest review. Opinions expressed are 100% my own and not influenced in any way other than the quality of the product itself.
