With the ever growing popularity of polish boxes, I’m sure if you’re like me, you have a hard time keeping them all in order. Who and what’s included? When do you order? Where do I order? Well, no worries, you’ve come to the right place because I have taken all the guess work out of finding your perfect beauty box. If you’re new to polish boxes, let me just say they are a perfect way to try new indie brands and support those ones you already love. Many boxes include little goodies from some of your favorite nail related brands like cuticle oil/balms, nail vinyls, etc.
This will be an constantly evolving list of any and all boxes that are on the market. Be sure to check out FB and/or IG pages/groups for swatches and any month to month changes.
