Coloristiq Nail Polish Rental Box Review

Another month another Coloristiq box. This is my 5th box and if you haven't heard Coloristiq is a monthly nail polish rental box. It's a great way to try out some new shades or brands without shelling out on loads of nail polish.

The box is £14.99 a month which is brilliant when you see the brands available. In this box I received all China Glaze polishes but they also stock OPI, Essie and Morgan Taylor which are all high quality brands with a great selection of colours and glitters.


The way it works is-

  • Create a Wish List of shades you like. Even prioritise the ones you'd like to try soonest.
  • When your box arrives you can try out each shade up to 3 times each  -that's 2 coats on each nail. 
  • After 30 days make sure the bottles are clean and packaged nicely. 
  • Use the postage stickers provided to send your box back.
  • Another box with new shades will be through your letter box and you start again.

It's all very simple and a really great way to save money if you are a nail polish addict like me!

Here's a look at the shades I received this month.

Passion For Petals is a pink toned red. It's a really lovely shade and unlike any other pink or red I own. It makes me think of Summer cocktails! It applies brilliantly too, you could actually get away with only one coat of this one.


Pack Lightly is a really new release from China Glaze, it's from the 2015 'Road Trip' collection so you can see there are some really current shades to choose from. It is a light peach which verges on the neon side of things. You know I love a bight nail!  Like last months Dashboard Dreamer this has a slight shimmer to it too but is only really noticeable in the right light. It's a gorgeous shade for Summer.


I was surprised by this one, I thought I was going to love  Towel Boy Toy as I love a vibrant blue nail but the finish wasn't for me. It felt a little thin and I'm not a huge fan of the satin finish. This is why the rental box is such a good idea. Normally I would have picked up that bottle and wasted £5 on a colour I didn't actually like wearing. But with Coloristic I tried it out and I can send it back safe in the knowledge that it's not for me and I didn't end up adding another shade to my collection that will just gather dust.


I think Pack Lightly is my favourite of the lot and I think I'll have to purchase the bottle for myself soon.

I love bright nails, if you have a favourite bright shade share it with me so I can check it out (and no doubt add it to my collection!)

What are your thought on a nail polish rental box?
