Howdy and Happy Friday! Today I'm excited to share with you a new US nail polish subscription service called Nailette! Unlike other nail polish sub boxes I've seen, these have mainstream polishes. After the jump I have the swatches of the 2 I received and a little overview of the sub box!

Nailette Sub Box

Nailette offers a subscription of mini nail polishes from Essie, O.P.I. and Orly. You can choose from either 2 mini polishes for $7.99/mo or 3 mini polishes for $10.99/mo. Nailette brings you a choice of 3 nail polish styles:
  • Simple and Subtle
  • Sophisticated and Classy
  • Bold and Edgy. 
Can't choose just one? Choose "I Like To Mix It Up!" You can see examples of the styles on the website. What I also like about this sub box, is you can choose your style to match your skin tone as well!

I bet you're wondering - why the mini polishes? I personally am not a fan of mini polishes, but I know some people are and I can understand why. As Nailette's website states: "we believe that your money is best spent on more colors, not unused polish".

Onto my polishes!

I kinda "lol"ed when I saw this polish, I've given it as a gift and in giveaways. I've always wanted to try it for myself, but never did! :P NOW I finally got to try Orly Royal Velvet, a "deep purple blue shimmer". And oh my stars how it comes to life in the sun! The duochrome isn't very obvious, but that's okay - it's there.

I did 2 coats of Orly Royal Velvet, no top coat. It ended up being a lot more opaque than I thought it would be. It didn't give me any issues with application or dry time.

O.P.I. Magazine Cover Mouse is a Liquid Sand polish! Magazine Cover Mouse is a medium red shade with pink and gold shimmer in it. It's a really pretty color! The gold and pink shimmer really make this polish awesome and brings the textured polish to life.

I did 2 coats of Magazine Cover Mouse, with no top coat and then 1 coat of AGO Top Coat. It didn't give me any application issues, I haven't ran into any with the Liquid Sand polishes. The dry time was also good when you wait between coats to allow for dry time :]

I think Nailette is a neat little sub box. It's a nice way to try out some of the top brands without having to totally commit to an entire bottle of polishes. In the end, it's not for me because I do not like mini polishes, but this would be great for someone who does like them! Heck, it would make a cute gift, too!
