It looks interesting and a good value but I'm trying out Square Hue currently. I'd like to keep an eye on it and see what they come out with.

I really don't need another nail polish sub! I'm already subbed to 3 (4 if you include Julep which I skip alot). I'll be interested to see what they have though!

I bit the bullet and signed up. The only nail polish sub I have right now is Julep, which I skipped this month. The confirmation email said I'll get my first box in about a week. I'll post when I get it! You can never have too much nail polish or too many shoes, right? smilehappyyes.gif

When it comes to a nail polish sub, for me, it has to be a sub directly with the polish-maker, like Square Hue and Julep. If this was a Cult Nails sub, I would be there in an instant. But it looks like they're sending Essie and Orly, which are good brands, but they're not brands that I would be interested in seeing in a sub like this.

I signed up for this since I'm trying to find a replacement for Julep, who has been a real snooze for me lately. I'm mostly curious to see what tools they send.

I already received a tracking number!

Wow, I ordered on Wednesday, it shipped Thursday and I got my box today!

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


The colors are Tart Deco, Turquoise and Caicos and Come Here! (they're all Essie and they're all still $8 on Essie's website).  The other items are Essie Base Coat (says it's a special gift for June subscribers), Mash Tweezers, a little jar of gold studs and KM nail glue.  This box was only $14.99 since they were offering your first month 1/2 off, so all in all I am pretty happy.  I like the colors and I will definitely have fun coming up with a design with the studs.

I think I will get another month before deciding whether or not to cancel.  The info sheet it came with says they want you to email them with your feedback and what colors I want to see next month.  I appreciate that they care what people think :)

I subscribed too after seeing what Lolo22 got :) Love the colors and the extras!

BTW the 50% off your first box promo is still active.

I'm still waiting on my box. Stupid USPS hasn't updated since June 13! Looks like a good one. And it will be my first Essies!

Here's my mani using the polish and studs from the box.

I'm surprised they went with this name considering there is Cult Nails. I wonder if Maria knows about this.

Yeah, when I originally googled it, that was the only thing I could find.

My box shipped yesterday. I ordered it Thursday night! That's amazing! (:

I ordered this Monday and it shipped Wednesday. I was noticing there seem to be several different boxes. Hoping I get this one since I love these colors. Looks like it should be arriving Monday.

I received mine a few days ago. Love it! I'm wearing Turquoise & Caicos (ring finger has Tart Deco dots) right now. The colors are beautiful!

Did everyone get the same colors??

I received the same as the ones shown in Lolo22's spoiler. I have seen variations with different colors and different brands (including Orly). Some didn't include the Essie basecoat either.

Yes the 50% off was worth it! I'd be happy with Essie or Orly or pretty much anything! (:

I just canceled my julep for July & signing up for this box- looks awesome!! So worth $15 ;-). Luv luv u enablers
post #24 of 45

I think it was a great box for the price (1/2 price), but my expectations will definitely be higher for the next box at $24.99.  I emailed them to ask a few questions about the sub and figured I'd post what they said since the website doesn't say much:

 

Thanks for your detailed email! First of all, I'd like to thank you for your feedback and input on future boxes, and let you know that I've passed the suggestions along to our product director.

Regarding the subscription service, we don't have a page for your to manage your billing information yet. We're working on that and you'll get a notification as soon as it's available.

The cancellation process just involves emailing
support@cultcosmetics.com and we'll remove you from our billing system. Again, as soon as the account management area is ready, you'll be able to do that from there.

We've had a number of questions about Paypal, but as of yet, we don't have any plans to offer that payment option. They're surprisingly difficult to work with, so it would be a big investment of time to add that, but we'll make sure to let you know if and when we do. I want to assure you, however, that our payment processing is secured by the highest-grade encryption available.

Thanks again for your excitement about Blackbox, and let me know how else I can help you! Happy Polishing,

 

I also replied back asking what day of the month boxes ship out and they said they ship the same day you paid each month, rather than a certain day for everyone.  They replied to both my emails very quickly and hopefully they get the account management page up and running soon because that's a big selling point for me to stick with it.  I think their response about Paypal is kind of odd, but I really dont know much about that.  A couple of suggestions I gave them for next month were more bright summer colors, Color Club holos, dotting or stamping tools, and anything for putting a spin on french tips.  I said that I really did not want to see any glitter pots (I saw a couple of their kits had them).

I got a completely different box then what was posted, including colors and everything! I'd update with a picture later, but this is what I got

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

3 Essie polishes in Under Where? Knockout pout, and Avenue Maintain. I got gold and silver studs. Purple Glitter. Nail Glue. The tweezers. And a really pretty bracelet. I'm happy considering the 50% off, but I don't think I'd pay full price.

Really from Essie's website it still costs $8? Maybe it's a shade they brought back?

Tart Deco and Turquoise and Caicos from the box you received are both from 2010 collections, only Come Here! is from a recent, 2013 Spring collection :)

 

Actually, all three polishes I got in my box were from years ago, too: Tart Deco is from Spring 2010 like I mentioned, Funny Face is from Summer 2009 and Color Club Almost Famous is from Spring 2010.

Well that's annoying lol.  I guess I cant complain too much because I do really like the colors and honestly I might need to pick up Knockout Pout for 2.99 too.  But still, kind of lame.

I love your box! (: This is a sub that seems like it could cause major box envy.

 

Does anyone know what I'd use plain like art glitter for? I got some in my box and I have no idea.
