March MeeBox Unboxing & Swatches - Miami Nice

Hello! Today I have my unboxing and swatches of March's MeeBox to share. If you missed February's 'Gatsby' box, you can find my swatches here, and nail art look here. The theme for March is 'Miami Nice', bringing us some brighter colours as we head into spring. Read on for full swatches and a closer look at everything inside!

First up is Floss Gloss 'Wet', a bright turquoise creme. I've heard good things about this polish, so was excited to give it a go. It applies smoothly although is a bit streakier than I expected. I still had some minor streaks after three coats, but not enough to justify a fourth. It did even out slightly as it dried. Below is three coats with topcoat.

This is much more green-toned in person, it photographs very blue.

Next is Lauren B Beauty 'Coral Canyon', a bright coral peach creme. The formula is smooth and easy to apply, but being a pastel it is a bit streaky on the first. I still some streaks after a second coat, so applied a careful third one to even them out. Below is three coats with topcoat.

The last polish is Nailberry 'Extravagant', a rich purple. This has a lovely smooth formula. It is a little bit patchy on the first coat, but has great opacity. A second evens everything out and deepens the colour slightly. This dries fairly glossy, but really comes to life with topcoat. Below is two coats and topcoat.

This is a bit brighter than it photographs.

One of our extras this month is a mini Leighton Denny crystal nail file. The MeeBox ladies let it slip that this would be included, and I just couldn't wait to recieve mine. I've heard nothing but good things about the Leighton Denny files, so I'm happy to finally own one!

Lastly, we also recieved two little nail art goodies from Charlies Nail Art - a sheet of silver holographic nail foil and a bag of rhombus glitters. I'm not too sure how well I'll get on with the foil as I've never used any before, but I'll give it my best shot.

What do you think? I'm definitely feeling the brighter colours this month, I was so happy when I first opened my box! The only thing I'm unsure on is the Floss Gloss - being only 5.5ml I consider it a mini, and unfortunately I didn't get on with the formula. I've read reviews where it's been a two coater though, so maybe I should give it another go. My Miami Nice nail art should be in my next post!
