Native War Paints: Monthly Subscription-July 2015

Hey friends!

How’s it going? I’m out of town this weekend celebrating a milestone birthday for Mr. Danger, (I won’t say how old, he’ll be mad. But it rhymes with dirty.) Anyway, I wanted to leave you guys with a Nail Polish Subscription Face-Off this weekend!

No. Not that Face Off. I give up. The caffeine has gone straight to my head.

Any chance to use this picture.

I’m cutting down on subscriptions lately to save some cash, and I decided I had to choose between either Rainbow Honey’s Mystery Bag or Native War Paint’s very new monthly subscription. I mean, I only have 10 fingernails, (20 if you count my toes), there’s only so much polish I can use at any given time.

So for today, let us examine Native War Paints. Tomorrow we will look at Rainbow Honey. And then a decision will be made……!

So check it out!

Native War Paints July Subscription

 

Informational Stuff:

Native War Paints is a nail polish and indie beauty company. This is their first time offering a subscription, and since I can’t really afford their normal $9-$11 nail polish, this sounded like a great way to save money and try something new.

The original release was very limited with about 15 boxes, but more slots were opened in July, and I believe there is not a wait list at this time. If you want this guy, you can go to the website and sign right up. (At the time of this writing-don’t be mad at Past Rebs, if that changes).

I paid $17.50 with shipping for this subscription, and each month we are supposed to receive at least one full size polish and 1 mini. Considering their normal polishes are about $10 each, this seems like a pretty good deal to me.

I was charged for the subscription on July 1, it shipped July 9th, and I got it July 11th. So it was a pretty fast TAT. Everything arrived safely wrapped in bubble wrap and a mailer envelope, so I had no problems with receiving my order!

Good Stuff: The theme of this month is mermaids. Because mermaids are awesome and everyone knows that.

Native War Paints Monthly Subscription JulyAgain there was no informational card, so please enjoy my lovely handmade descriptions of each nail polish.

Enchantress of the Seas- Blue jelly with blue and green glitterNWP Enchantress of the SeasIf you’re into a dramatic, deep blue glitter polish, this is a pretty cool color. The glitter chunks are a bit annoying to work with, (as glitter chunks often are), but after about 3 coats I finally got a nail swatch I was happy with. This is definitely a nice aquatic looking nail polish.

Mermaid Kisses- A matte glitter polish with blue, green, and purple glittersMermaid KissesThis is my favorite polish out of the three in the bag. I don’t typically like matte polish, but I really like this combination of glitters. This is a little darker than I like for summer colors, but I’ll definitely be wearing it this fall.

Beautiful Ocean Home, mini- Blue jelly polishBeautiful Ocean Home

I think this is a jelly, but I could be making it up. It’s a very thin polish that has a blue/green sheen to it, and needs about 3 coats to reach opacity. The thinness of the formula makes me think it’s a jelly, but I’m just making these descriptions up, so who knows.

Overall: I like that this month each polish had a different finish. I would have probably preferred lighter colors for summer, but the blue mermaid theme was pretty fun.

Native War Paint Subscription In General:

Pros: Nail polish has had really nice quality, and the themes have been fun.

Cons: This is really a grab bag. You never know what size, texture, or color you’re going to get.

Love,

Rebs!
