Bondi New York August Subscription Box!

Special post alert! I received my bondi NY subscription box today in the mail, and I put down the books for a moment to swatch all the polish! =D

WAHOO!
The box came nicely packed, and all the polishes were safe and sound. The polishes I received were Fool's, Blue Skies, and Central Park Blossom. Also included in the box was a nicely-sized all-natural volumizing hair mousse - I'll try that out and get back to ya ;-)

Onto the swatches! First I want to show you my favorite of the bunch: Blue Skies: a gorgeous sky blue (duh) creme! Application was absolutely flawless. Shown below is two coats of Blue Skies with topcoat.



Next up is Central Park Blossom: a lovely pale pink semi-sheer creme that you can build up to opacity. I used three coats for opacity, and to even out any streakiness. Swatches below are with topcoat!



The third polish I received in the box is Fool's. Fool's is a pretty metallic gold that sparkles in the sun! Swatches below show two coats of Fool's with topcoat. Application was very good for this type of polish - I didn't have any problems with dragging, etc. Check it out!



All in all I am SO TOTALLY THRILLED that I signed up for Bondi's subscription service! I am very happy with all three of these polishes, and I am SO looking forward to next month's box!

Have you signed up for Bondi's sub box yet? If you haven't, what are you waiting for!? =P

    1. Fool's is one of my favorite colors. It's great as a Summer evening party color as well as a cold Fall/Winter color

  4. Lovely swatches! It makes me kind of glad I didn't get the box, though. The nude pink and gold wouldn't work with my skintone, and that hair product is also not my thing. I just couldn't commit to the $20 box when I don't know what I'm getting and one of the items is a beauty product I may or may not even use. I wonder if they'll ever switch to a model like Julep where you can see the colors ahead of time and choose which box you want.

    1. Hi Cathy, thanks for the feedback. Our first box was a mystery box purely because of the lead time to produce nail polish (approximately 6-8 weeks). After the debacle that was "Glossy Gate", we decided to turn around a subscription service within four weeks as many of our customers reached out to us requesting this. We took the colors for the first box from our existing collection. The colors in this review are one of eight color sets which we put together so we hope that customers find value with what they received.

      From the September box onwards, you will be able to preview and skip if the colors are not for you.

      Hope this helps clarify. My team and I are always available to answer questions so feel free to stop by the website and start a live chat or send me an email richard at bondinewyork.com :)
