Ok this was my second ever Birchbox. I can't seem to find the images from my first Birchbox, so we'll talkabout this box. I was slightly pleased with this box. It wasn't anything that just totally jumped out at me. I received the Yogini by Harvey Prince sample and it just wasn't my type of fragrance. I ended up including it in an order.
The one saving grace to the Rainy Day's box was the Color Club white polish! I absolutely LOVED this polish!! I actually ended up spending my "Birchbox" points ordering the full set. This box definitely helped to renew my love of painting my fingernails!! Before receiving this box I NEVER painted my nails and since it's become a regular ritual. I don't know how many times I have "instagramed" my nails LOL.
This Color Club set is definitely a fav. I love the pastel colors. The color goes on very well. I can't pick a favorite, because I honestly am obsessed with them all. In this box you have: gold, white, blue and green. These were perfect for springtime and are still awesome summer colors. I predict that I will be wearing these colors for many more moons!
Here is my instagram pic of my nails painted. The only color that I didn't use in this pic was the gold. One day soon, I will definitely take a pic with my nails painted with all of the colors!
Overall, that second birchbox, I keep typing birthbox LOL. Anyway, it was definitely a success. It helped me to rediscover my love of painting my nails and ultimately lead me to make my first nail polish purchase in umpteen years! Am super stoked that I chose this set! Along with the Color Club set, I also purchased a full size of "That Gal" by Benefit Costmetics. I have fallen in love with Benefit, but that's a whole other post to come ! I also picked the mystery pack as my "bonus" (Although I could have added another bonus, but was too excited that the mystery pack was actually in stock LOL) and I got the Inika eyeliner in green. Which was an awesome surprise! I'm not one for colored liners, but as I have green eyes, a green works well for me. If I'm gonna use color it's plum or green! Here's a snap of the goodies I received with my circa box points!
Well, if you have made it to this point in the post, I obviously didn't bore you to tears, so another brownie point for myself. Yippie! Stay tuned for other beauty blogs!
