Today, I have something really exciting to share with you. Nailbox, the online nail polish store, is launching a new quarterly TrendBox subscription and they asked me to curate their very first box!

With a range of boutique and international brands to choose from, I selected four shades that best represent the trends of the Spring/Summer season and I hope you all love them as much as I do!

Narrowing down all the gorgeous colors sold on Nailbox to just four was a challenge but these polishes stood out for their on-trend and unique hues and finishes. You can read more about my selections and why I chose them on

SS ’14 TrendBox Colors

Face Stockholm Athena – Who doesn’t love a fab holographic polish? I mean, when the sun is shining and those intense rainbows appear on your nails, it’s hard to look away. And trust me when I say that the silver-based Athena is even more prismatic in person. The bonus… the formula is kick ass! No aqua/quick-dry base needed. Just make sure your regular base coat is completely dry.

JINsoon Cool Blue – I seriously can’t get enough of this color, you guys. It’s THE shade of the season. And the chance to get it to you at an amazing price? I couldn’t resist! Even though JINsoon isn’t carried on Nailbox, yet, I HAD to include it for you all. I just put it on my toes last night and, gah, is it gorgeous.

LVX Roux – Is my perfect kind of hot coral creme. It’s the ideal mix of hot pink and red with just a hint of orange. It’s poppy and rich and the formula is spot on. This will definitely be my next pedicure color.

NCLA Mint Condition Candy Coat – Texture is still alive and well but I know that hardcore textures turn a lot of people off. What I love about the Candy Coats is that the texture is pretty minimal. Even more subtle than the PixieDusts. And you can cover it with a glossy top coat and all but eliminate its tactile quality. This mix of metallic gold shimmer and lime green in no way matches its minty name but it’s unique to the world of texture and will look fab with a faux glow.

    The Trendbox colors are perfectly chosen. I want one. Now.

  2. That is SO awesome! Congratulations! The colors are perfection for Summer!

  3. Gorgeous picks! I love them all, but that silver one is to die for! How fun!

  4. JenniferO says:

    Wow! This looks great! I’ve been underwhelmed by the nail sub boxes I’ve seen (either the value is not good or the brand is totally unknown). Grabbing me a year sub now :-) GREAT picks for the box you curated. Good brands, great colors, and the value is excellent!

    • JenniferO says:

      Grr, getting an Internal Server Error. I’ll keep trying! Do you know if I subscribe for the year if I will get your curated box? Because I really want it!

      • Medusa says:

        Hello! I would also like to know the answer to this question!

      • Nailbox says:

        Sorry for the server error on the website, it was caused by a spike in web traffic. Refreshing the page should usually fix the problem.

        If you sign up for the TrendBox now you will receive Michelle’s SS’14 box. We usually ship in 1 business day.

      • Mary L says:

        It took me a while to be able to order my Annual TrendBox subscription, but with the help of a really nice person at NailBox, I did it. I got error messages, too. My Visa bank wouldn’t let the transaction go through. They don’t take Discover, my usual on-line shopping card. I saw that they take Paypal, but there wasn’t a link. So I sent an email to the “contact Us” and someone got back to me right away. I was able to use paypal and my 1st box should be sent tomorrow!! So excited.

  5. Kellie says:

    The polishes are really pretty but for someone like me who is disabled and on an extremely low fixed income the price is way out of my range. =/

  6. Allie says:

    When do they send the orders out? They say these are quarterly but they don’t give details as to when in the quarter they ship out.

  7. Lisa N. says:

    Wow how cool! Congrats on the opportunity. Your box looks amazing.

  8. Tricia says:

    I want JinSoon Cool Blue SO bad! It is such a gorgeous shade of blue! The rest of these are really pretty, too! I love that green/gold!

  9. Abbi says:

    Excellent picks! Great value too, considering the cost per individual bottle. Nice work!

  10. Mishi says:

    Wow!!!!!! Great picks!!!!

  11. VALENTINA says:

    I wish I could have the chance to subscribe to this nail polish box! Unfortunately, I’m in Italy. Do they ship internationally? I do not know anybody in the USA ….

  12. kel says:

    i just want that holographic polish!!!

  13. Kristin says:

    LOVE that blue one and coral one!! They are gorgeous!

  14. Amber Janel says:

    I love the silver holographic polish and the blue. I’ll have to pick this box up. Great job!

  15. Oh man, I am soo tempted!

  16. Lark says:

    Nice choices! And of course they would choose you to curate their first set! I mean, duh, who’s more qualified? ;)

    I actually don’t own any Jin Soon (don’t slap me). I’ve had Epidote, Obsidian, and Cool Blue in my Sephora cart for months now. Lol! I just can’t quite pull the trigger – it’s that $18 price tag! Ouch!

    I guess the bafflingly high price is more of a marketing ploy, or “pricing strategy,” versus a reflection of the actual cost to create the product. And I’m definitely not the part of the “luxury” demographic being targeted! #WhiteTrashArmedWithCoupons

    But, really – congratulations! This has to be a super-exciting opportunity! You have a great site, and are basically building an enviable resume with all of the cool things you have done throughout the years. Before long, I bet we’ll all be obsessing over the upcoming ALU collection! :)

    • Aww, thanks Lark. You’re so sweet. I get it about the $18 price tag. It’s hard to pull the trigger when there are great brands selling for much less. That’s why I wanted to include JINsoon in the box. To give people a chance to try it for a reduced cost. I love the polish and the colors but it’s a $$$ commitment.

  17. Jessica says:

    Pretty nail colors indeed especially the mint condition. I have never tried to subscribe to beauty boxes for many said that most of the products in it are disappointing. I rather try goods that are tested by many.

    • I’m leery of subscription boxes as well. Especially when they cost more than $20. I like the Nailbox concept though because it’s not a house brand of polish. Instead you get established boutique, indie and commercial brands and you know the guaranteed value of the box. It’s a great deal.

  18. Lynn says:

    Beautiful colors!

  19. Kelly says:

    My box shipped last night! I’m curious, though. How do JinSoon Cool Blue and Blue Iris compare?

  20. LanieB says:

    Is the website functional? Every time I try to get there, it gives me an error message.

  21. myrrhm says:

    I took 1look at this and bought a subscription! If the future choices are any where near as cool as these colors I can’t wait to get them!
