Lilian Eve: “Champagne & Peonies” – May 2015

If you’re a regular reader then you know I have a slight polish obsession, (you say excessive, I say adequate, let’s meet in the middle). In any case, I was super psyched when Lillian Eve, a polish sub, sent me their May box to review.

Lillian Eve offers a monthly sub box featuring a duo of artisan nail polishes without harmful toxins (5-free), animal by-products, or animal testing. for $12.99 (with free shipping). They offer trendy seasonal colors and if you’re interested you can sign up for a free Welcome box. Lilian Eve also offers their polishes for individual sale. They have an awesome range of colors along with manicure basics like topcoats and cuticle oils.

A cute square box arrived on my doorstep to reveal…

Description: Sheer Finish Ivory Polish
Verdict: Hit!
I have a few white polishes but most are on the thicker opaque side. I like this sheer white because I think it will be the perfect backdrop for some really fun topcoats. White is also a chic color choice as we head into summer.

Description: Lavender Creme
Verdict: Like
Back when I was a maid of honor for my sister’s wedding, my dress was actually very close to this color so I find this polish to be aptly named. This is a very sweet shade of lavender. This season I’ve been into pastels and sheer polishes so I’m sure I’ll have some fun with this color. The formula also applied quite easily.

Verdict: Hit!

I love polish and this duo felt seasonally appropriate and cohesive as a set. I received this box for free, but the cost is only $12.99 per month. That’s a great value in a sub box and a great price for two vegan/5 free polishes. Even drugstore polishes would cost me more, so I was thrilled with this box. I find polish a great inexpensive way to jazz up your wardrobe for the seasons. If you’re looking for some fun new polishes at a bargain, consider signing up for a Lillian Eve sub.

Do you wear polish regularly? If so, do you find you change colors seasonally, or stick to your faves?

Once upon a time, long, long ago, Lisa attended Syracuse University where she studied singing in a giant castle surrounded by ice and snow. After she earned her music degree, she headed to the island of Manhattan, down to the West Village, to a place called the New School. There, she earned another degree in the great art of writing stories for children. She currently works on that same island trying to help real people, while making up stories about imaginary ones. Her first book, “The Ice Maiden’s Tale,” a fairy tale adventure, was released on May 30, 2017 and is up for sale on Amazon. In the meantime, she keeps herself occupied by obsessing over subscription boxes and home renovations.

    • They are a great value and a portion of their sales goes to charity. What’s also nice is that you can stop and start your subscription online via your account. So you can sign up for a few months and then take a break if you’re getting too much polish.

    • I haven’t had mine too long, so I’m not sure about how long they last. They definitely didn’t have a strong odor and if you’re used to drugstore brands (like Essie) I think you will definitely notice that these have a much lighter scent. I hope you enjoy your polishes!
