First, a little announcement: you may have already caught on, but Memebox is no longer shipping to Canada/internationally. As a result, the Memebox Nail Shop #3 Vivid Pop* will be the last review you see from them on Writing Whimsy. It’s really unfortunate, but maybe someday they will ship to us again.
Now, onto the Memebox Nail Shop #3 Vivid Pop Box itself. This was actually a super affordable, nail-focused option at $18 plus shipping, and I believe it even went on sale for $12. I hadn’t received any nail polish from Memebox before, but I was very impressed with how it was packaged. The bottles were all individually bubble wrapped.
Memebox Nail Shop #3 Vivid Pop Box came with five polishes, all from one brand, as well as four glitters, all from one brand. It would have been nice to see more variety in the box, but the shade selection was great.
The Memebox Nail Shop #3 Vivid Pop Box included the with shan Nail Lacquer shades (from left to right) Blue Violet, Red Grapefruit, Neon Green, Pink Lady and Neon Purple. These are really bright, neon colours that fit the theme well. The polishes contain 10 mL of product, which is less than the average polish, although I never finish polish anyway. The with shan polishes included in the Memebox Nail Shop #3 Vivid Pop Box have a strong scent, but apply nicely. I used two coats of each. However, the purples (both pinkie and thumb nail) could get away with one coat, while the green in particular was still quite sheer and would benefit from a white “undie”. I do find that pink can stain, so, as always, I recommend a base coat.
There were also four SARACEN Fluorescent Glitters in the Memebox Nail Shop #3 Vivid Pop, which is pretty much standard hexagonal glitter in Gold, Black, Blue and Silver shades, great for adding a little something extra to your nails. According to Memebox, these retail for $24 which is way more than I would ever pay for glitter, but considering the actual price of the box, it is still a great value overall.
It’s definitely bittersweet to be sharing the Memebox Nail Shop #3 Vivid Pop Box. I have discovered some great products through the service, and although this isn’t the most exciting box I’ve gotten from them, the sale price in particular made it a great option. I really love those purples!
I’m still interested in trying out more Korean Beauty, so definitely let me know your favourite place to shop for KBeauty that ships to Canada. For now at least, goodbye Memebox!
