This box is under their “classy” category.
Mini Essie Polish in Under the Twilight – size: .16 fl oz, value: $2.75
Mini Orly Laquer in Cheeky – size: .18 fl oz, value: $3.10
I’m already a huge fan of Essie polishes and their formula, so I was definitely excited to see Essie in my box. This polish itself goes on really smoothly and very opaque. However, I think that this specific shade of purple is a little too dark for what I like to wear in summer, so I’ll save this one until Fall.
This Orly polish is perfect for summer. You can’t see it too well in the photo, but it’s a pretty, light pink with a fine, gold shimmer. I think this will be going on my nails next!
The Verdict: I love that Nailette only sends you 3-free polish! I also love that you’re able to customize your own skin tone/style preferences to help them pick shades for you. Personally, I don’t even mind that they’re mini polishes – their website says that they’ll last from 8-12 applications and, considering how much polish I already own, that works great for me. I don’t think I have actually finished off a full-sized polish before it was time to toss it. As far as the pricing goes, I like the idea of getting two mini polishes for just about the price of one full-size one, but I didn’t see the actual value match up here: $9.99 for the box, and only $5.85 in product value. Maybe if they made the subscription include three mini polishes, I’d agree with the value more!
