I've got another subscription review for you! This one is actually much simpler then any other I have tried, which I very much appreciate. It's called ColorMeMonthly and promises to deliver one high quality polish to your doorstep every month for seven dollars including shipping based on current color and fashion trends. Color me intrigued!
First up is the packaging. It's simple, understated, and focuses on the polish in the box. I, a lover of packaging, actually really appreciated this. I know that the company is solely focused on what I want: a great color every month. Additionally they respond to the popularity and put colors in the vault to purchase at full price. This is a perfect example of a well executed subscription. Surprise, product at a discount, and ability to repurchase later should I need another.
Needless to say I was DYING for it to arrive and headed over to Pantone to peek at the Spring Fashion Report. I had my hopes high for a highly pigmented creme in one of the gorgeous tones and, lo and behold, this month was Chiffon. It appears to have everything in common with Violet Tulip.
In order is indoor with indirect light, the pantone swatch, and outdoor direct sunlight. I forgot base coat, did two coats, and no top coat.
I really love it. My only thing is that chiffon is a light and airy cloth so I might have gone with a different finish or a different name. Regardless it is happiness!
To be clear I have no idea if they intentionally chose a color from the 2014 Spring Pantone Fashion report, BUT it seems a pretty interesting coincidence.
By the way is it May yet?? You have until the end of the month to get subscribed so what are you waiting for?
