This month contains 1 polish, two 2 oz wax scent shots, and 3 cuticle oils. 

These are all available now and there's a 20% off sale going on now on new releases ending at 11:59PM on 2/16. Use code: FEBNR20 at check out. Shall we get a closer look at all these products?

Pretty Beautiful Unlimited Heartbreaker (3 coats) ($11)

The February POTM is Heartbreaker which is a teal base with green/turquoise/blue multichrome pigment, scattered holographic and micro holographic flakies, blue/green/gold and silver/pink/aqua crystal chameleon flakies. This one is super shifty and I absolutely adore the strong green to blue shift depending on the angle. I used 3 thin coats for my photos, but you may get away with 2 if you use thicker coats or have shorter nails. The formula was perfect and it dried with minimal texture. 

Cuticle Oil 

Dark Chocolate ($6 or 3 for $15): A rich, slightly bitter aroma of gourmet dark chocolate. Very nice chocolate scent that is very true. I was worried it would be too bitter or sweet, but this has a really nice balance. 

Chocolate Covered Cherries ($6 or 3 for $15): Sweet maraschino cherries smothered in milk chocolate, with a dry down of French vanilla. This isn't very cherry-forward in case you dislike cherry scents. It's slightly sweeter than the Dark Chocolate, but with more depth from the sweeter, fruitier additions. 

Passion Kiss ($6 or 3 for $15): A playful fragrance with top notes of raspberry, blackberry, and fresh strawberries. Followed by mid notes of coconut milk and freshly picked roses. Ending in bottom notes of Egyptian vanilla and amber musk. I'm a huge fan of fruity scents, so this one was my top pick. I can definitely pick up the berry notes, but the rose adds some complexity to keep things interesting. 

IngredientsGrape Seed Oil, Argan Oil, Sunflower Oil, Hemp Seed Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Avocado Oil, Babassu Oil, Jojoba Oil, Pumpkin Seed Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Safflower Oil, Rose Hip Seed Oil and Fragrance
Squeeze bottle - 10ml
I am a huge fan of the bottles and with the fine tip you can get great precision for placement of the oil. The brush pens are fine, but they don't hold very much product, and I feel like they become unsanitary after several uses. In terms of the oil itself, I have finally found an oil I'm happy to use during the day! It is very nourishing, but so light and fast-absorbing that I can use it during the day. My nails and cuticles thank you Virginia! 

Pink Daises & Goji Berries ($3 or both for $5): Spring is in the air with top notes of pink grapefruit, goji berries and lemon.  Middle notes of apple & pear blossoms, spring daises and meadow lily and rounded out with cyclamen petals, musk and blonde woods. I have no idea what goji berries smell like, but apparently I really like them! This one is a beautiful mix of fruity and clean scents to my nose. This is my first time trying the Pretty Beautiful Unlimited wax and I am very impressed with the intensity and throw! 

Rose, Honeysuckle & Jasmine ($3 or both for $5): Green foliage blends with sweet jasmine flowers with notes of rose petals intertwined with blooming honeysuckle in this garden blend and finished off with musk and sandalwood. I had my husband smell this one blind and he correctly identified 2 of the three flowers! The three flower scents blend well together, but you need to like floral fragrances to enjoy this one. I happen to love it, and it also has a great throw. 

I am so lucky to have been able to review this because I will definitely be checking out this "box" in the future! I mean, it has all my favorite things: nail polish, cuticle oil, and wax! What else could you ask for? Again, these are available now, and don't forget to use code FEBNR20 through 2/16 for 20% off the new releases.
