May MeeBox - Chelsea Flower Show

Hello! Today I finally have May's MeeBox to share with you. If you missed April's 'Material Girl' box, you can find my post here. The theme for May was Chelsea Flower Show, so I expected, greens, brights, and some sort of floral nail art items - and I wasn't far off! Read on for my full swatches and a look at everything inside.

First up for polishes is Zoya 'Jace', a slightly muted green. I did find this to be more of a sheerer jelly formula, and the first coat did try to run as it was a little thinner than I expected. The next coat applied fine though so it was probably my own fault for using no basecoat! I did need a third coat for full coverage. Below is three coats with topcoat.

Next is A-England 'Peaseblossom A Fairy', a deep pinky purple shimmery holographic. I was surprised to see such a recent A England! The formula is smooth and easy to apply. This was so close to being a one coater for me, except that I could very slightly see my nail line. A thicker coat would have done the trick. Below is two coats with topcoat.

Last for polish is Nails Inc Gel Effect 'Seven Dials', a classic yellow creme. This has been one of my go to yellows for years, so even though I already have this, I was excited to see it. The formula is smooth and easy to apply and quite opaque for a yellow. You could possibly get away with two coats, though I did add a third for some minor streaks. Below is three coats with topcoat.

For our extras this month, we recieved a packet of floral decals from iZ Beauty of London, and a dotting tool from Miss Cat Nails. I love iZ's decals, and I have been needing a new dotting tool - mines an old cheap one and this one is much nicer!

What do you think? This is definitely my favourite box compared to recent months. I don't quite know what it was about it, but it's the most excited I've been about a MeeBox in a while! I do love all of the brands, all of the items, and all of the colours - so I guess it makes sense. It won't be too long until the June boxes start arriving. I wonder what they have in store for us this month.

Hope to see you in the next post!
