Nail Polish Subscription Box Review – Cult Cosmetics Black Box
The Cult Cosmetics Blackbox Nail Club is a new nail polish and nail art subscription box designed to send you everything you need for the latest nail looks. Each box includes new on-trend nail polish shades and tools for fun nail art designs!
I found out about the Cult Cosmetics Blackbox Nail Club about a week ago and decided to sign up since they were offering the first box at half off! (Thank you again to Larkin for letting me know about this new nail polish subscription box!) Good news – I just checked their site and the 50% off offer is still available!
The Box: Cult Cosmetics Blackbox Nail Club
The Cost: $19.99 plus $5 shipping ($9.99 for first month with current offer)
The Products: 3 full size polishes, 2 tool/accessories plus video tutorials for 3 different looks.

Essie Nail Polish in Play Date – Value $8
Essie Nail Polish in Maximillian Strass Her – Value $8
Essie Nail Polish in Pansy – Value $8
3 full-sized Essie nail polishes in beautiful summer colors? I couldn’t be happier with the nail polishes they added to this box! Plus, just with these items, the value of this box is already over what I paid for it!
MASH Nail Design Pen in Black – Value $6
This nail pen has good reviews, and I like that it’s in a basic black color. I’m definitely new to nail art, so I think this is the easiest way for me to start embracing the trend!
Sponges and Glitter – Value $4?
They included a note recommending that you use these sponges for creating ombre and glitter effects. I have always liked the ombre nail polish effect, so I now have zero excuses not to try it!
Believe it or not, the glitter pot is completely shut and didn’t arrive loose. I don’t know how this glitter got everywhere! Glitter seems like it’s impossible to completely clean up, so you may see a speck or two of gold glitter in upcoming subscription box review pictures! Plus, since I have lots of glitter polish (and just added some 4th of july glitter polish to my collection) I don’t think I will be using this glitter pot anytime soon. If there’s a benefit to using loose glitter over glitter polish – let me know!
Verdict: I’m really impressed with the value and curation of this box. I really like the Essie brand for nail polish, so those colors were spot on for me. I’ll also use the nail pen and sponges. If I could change one thing about this subscription, I would love if they either included tutorial cards in the box or a link to video tutorials on cool nail art designs using the items in the box for that month. I’m definitely a newbie when it comes to nail art and need all the help I can get, plus I just like step-by-step videos even if my final result is never as great as the ending on the video! It looks like Cult Cosmetics does have video tutorials on some of their nail polish sets, so hopefully video tutorials for subscription box sets will happen soon!
