December Mani Of The Month Box Swatch and Review

Greetings and Nailutations,

What happens when 3 of your favorite brands combine together to create a Mani Of The Month box? I jump up and down and make sure to get one!  I was able to snag the December Mani Of The Month box which feature products from Heather's Hues, Dream Polish and Nails Redesigned.  Each box features a full size polish, a mini glitter topper and assorted extra glitter from Heather's Hues, a base coat, top coat in mini size and a nail care item from Dream Polish and an assortment of nail vinyl decals and Swarovski crystals from Nails Redesigned.

Now let's get to some swatches!

First up are the two polishes from Heather's Hues Tonight We Celebrate and "Bling" In The New Year.  Tonight We Celebrate is a black glitter jelly with assorted silver holographic hex glitter.  The best part is that it is THERMAL!!  Cold state is black and warm state is light grey.  It was very sensitive and just applying it, I could see the thermal transition.  Photos show 2 coats with Gem Glam Top Coat from Dream Polish.

The second polish is a mini glitter topper called "Bling" In The New Year and it contains black, silver and gold glitter hexes and shards.  Heather's polishes also came with a bag of star glitters for placement.  Photos show 1 coat and star glitter placement over Lavish Polish Vivacious topped with Gem Glam Top Coat from Dream Polish.

Four sheets of vinyls/decals from Nails Redesigned were part of the Mani Of The Month Box.  It came with a sheet of martini glasses, champagne glasses toasting, spirals and a sheet of single chevron-esque design and a bag of light blue Swarovsky crystals.  The glasses are meant as decals while the spirals and chevron design are meant as removable pieces to block where color should not go.

Photos show Tonight We Celebrate (thermal) with pointer and pinky adorned with Swarovski crystals, ring finger has star glitter placement and middle finger has the martini decal.  I have small finger nails, so the martini glass just barely fit and the champagne glasses are a bit wide.  Top coat used here is Gem Glam Top Coat from Dream Polish.

Next I used the chevron-esque decals and used them to create the gold tips.  Photos show 2 coats of Stunning from Lavish Polish stamping using Orly Luxe with MoYou Princess Plate 14, Nails Redesigned vinyls all topped with Gem Glam Top Coat from Dream Polish.

The last mani I used the spiral vinyls from Nails Redesigned.  I started with Lavish Polish Alluring, let it dry, then applied the spiral vinyls and Drip Drop Nail Paint Tighty Whities and removed the vinyls.  This was all topped with Gem Glam Top Coat from Dream Polish.  They reminded me of peppermint swirls.

The other products that are part of the Mani Of The Month box are from Dream Polish.  A mini top coat and base coat in a new unreleased scent of Strawberry Champagne were included as well as a a cuticle balm stick in the same scent.  The scent is delicious!

Loves:  Full size polish, mini glitter topper, a mini base and top coat AND 4 sheets of nail decals/vinyls AND crystals??  All for ~$33!  Yes please.  When I travel, I love to have minis, so they are great to have on hand.  I also like that I can try out new scents from Dream Polish.  I love the fun designs and manis you can create with this box!  The combinations are limitless!

Wishes:  Right now it is a pre-order program, so you pay and wait a few weeks to get your box.  I wish it would be on hand with a set amount, so paying for it vs when you receive it isn't so spaced out.  It would also be nice to see exactly what you are getting prior to purchasing, so it isn't a mystery....especially if it's a scent you LOVE or a color of polish you NEED in your life or some decals that WANT to be in you next mani!  :)

You can order the Mani Of The Month Box from any of the 3 brands above!  January's box is themed Winter Wonderland and is available for pre-order now until December 16th.

Happy Polishing,
Kristi aka @BeginNails
