Here’s the deal:
- Cult Cosmetics offers a monthly nail art kit called Black Box. It’s $24.98, but you can get your first month for $14.98. ($19.99 plus $4.99 Shipping and Handling.)
- All their formulas are “5 Free” and that is a good thing, because it’s supposed to be better for you, the environment, etc.
- You get three full-size nail polishes and a nail art tool of some kind nail art tool in every box.
But, is this nail art kit worth 25 dollars a month?
Well, let’s take a look at exactly what you get…
When you open the box, (Cookie helped me open mine. He wanted to eat that crinkled paper SO BAD) it’s super cute. You get a shiny full covered card with nail art tips on the back, everything is REALLY well packaged so it doesn’t break in transit, and I was initially impressed.
In November’s Cult Cosmetics Blackbox, you get full sized of Cult Brand Nail Polish in Runyon, Mulholland, and Rose Bowl, and a black Color Club nail art bottle with a striper brush. The colors were fantastic, and I am impressed so far with the wear. Three days in, and I don’t have any chipping. That’s pretty good for me considering I usually have chipping within the first hour or so!
BUT– The nail art tutorial that came with the kit leaves a lot to be desired.
Basically, it’s like– here, draw these things on your hand and you have nail art. It reminds me a lot of this:
Would I buy this kit again? Yes, I am going to try it for one more month and hope their nail art tutorials improve, but for $25, it’s a little overpriced right now. This kit would be a steal at $20. (Which really means they should just give you free shipping.)
It’s not a terrible kit, but hopefully it will get better! And, I did try the nail art tutorial, even if it was kind of blah.
