November Nail the Mail box review & nail art

I made some fall themed nail art with each of the polishes from the November Nail the Mail box :D If you like what you see, be sure to grab yours soon... Right now, there are still boxes available but they won't be there for long! Click to see more!

 Sorbet Seams

So let's look at this nail art I made using this month's polishes! This Sorbet Seams polish (which has no name btw) seemed perfect for some fall themed nail art.

I started out with a base of Aliquid Lacquer Dogged and made a casual kind of glitter gradient using the Sorbet Seams polish. You can see this in action in the video tutorial below.
I added these little acorns with acrylic paint & my Roubloff 00 detail brush from Adnails Manucure. I have NO idea how the texture in the acorn caps turned out so cool! It was an accident, but at least it's a happy one!
The formula of the Nail the Mail box has changed a little bit from this month forward. Where there used to be two boxes: an indie and a mix of mainstream & indie, there's now just the one box. This makes things much more accessible and doesn't give you that nagging feeling of 'I should have picked the other box'. This also means there's a little bit more in my box each month!

Each box contains 3 - 4 polishes from European indie & mainstream brands, plus a little nail related extra :) Not sure what piCture pOlish is doing joining the party since it's Australian but hey, I'm not complaining one bit! We're all one big happy family!

Appeal 4 - Midnight Green

Aaaand the second polish of today is.... this stunner jelly from the Danish brand Appeal 4! I paired this one with a bit of China Glaze Fairy Dust which I sandwiched between layers of Midnight Green.

I went with a tissue box with tissues flying out of it because flu season is here! Yay! *dripping with sarcasm*

Yeah I hate the cold. Cold makes me sneeze, but then again sun makes me sneeze too, as well as pollen. Tissue boxes are my best friends, year round :)

I painted the box & flying tissues with acrylic paint & my Roubloff 00 detail brush from Adnails Manucure. The tissues make me think of a tissue trail in one of the Scooby Doo games, you had to use a magnifying glass to follow the trail to find Sergio, hihi!
You might have noticed that there are 3 polishes in the box but I've only shown you 2 today. I'm showing you the last one, piCture pOlish Scarlett, tomorrow with a video tutorial!

I received the November Nail the Mail 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.
