Bondi - New Subscription Box (MERGED) - Page 7

post #181 of 213

I really think it's all about chemistry.  I never have trouble with any polish no matter how cheap or expensive.  It just stays and stays without chipping.  My sister, on the other hand, can't go 2 days without wrecked polish.  We tried the exact same manicure one time just to see if it was the polish, base or top coat.  Mine lasted over 2 weeks until I couldn't stand wearing the same colour anymore.  Hers had chips by day 3.

Do you swipe your nails with remover before applying polish (this is after polish removal) to remove any residue/lotion/etc? Did you use a base coat? You can use I'm Vers as both a base coat and a topcoat, which is super handy.

 

I've also learned that some polishes react better to their own brand of base/topcoats and will peel/flake sooner if you use a different brand basecoat or no basecoat at all.

Ha ha! I did like the Jackson Pollock effect, that's one of the reasons I grabbed my camera before grabbing the nail polish remover. I just had to laugh that the thing ended up on the floor after all the drama just trying to get it to me!

My realtor is going to cry when she sees the stained grout though. That's original 1930s tile and it's coveted in older homes in this area. I'm going to have to get on my knees and do some major scrubbing this weekend.

I agree. I'm looking forward to at least trying Bondi out. If their formula works well for me, then I will for sure end up switching from Julep to them. While I really love the Julep colors, the formula just will not last on my nails.

Been wearing it a couple of days. It is an awesome color. I am shocked that there has been hardly any wear on it. Just barely on the tips. My nails peel horribly so polish flakes off really bad where it is damaged. This seems to be staying put. I am beyond thrilled.

This is the best polish I ever used like it more than zoya it just does not chip on me ever amazing

To the person who was nervous abt a new sub after FFF, I wouldn't worry, Bondi seems like an amazing company with top notch service. I think people will be dropping Julep like mad once they find out abt Bondi.


Is Sephora X 5 free?

I believe Sephora x is probably not 5 free. I own two polishes from Sephora X collection. I checked on their sit and don't find anything.

Really? I never notice that. That must be like a long time ago or was that a short period of time that they did that?

Hi! Sorry, I had to create a new thread for Bondi NYC subscription because I saw this thread was created but it's incorrect format. It's placed under "General Beauty & Fashion", "Nail Talk', Bondi. It's supposed to be in a correct group format under "Subscription & Sampling Programs". I'm sorry if I cause any confusions. 

 

Here's the new thread in a correct category:

It is actually kind of pretty, in an abstract makeup and beauty sort of theme...=)  Maybe consider going into business with your cat?

Okay, just read through this thread, and you all have completely convinced me to sign up for the Bondi Box!  I love some of their colors and will be excited to see what I get in my first box.  Julep's non-inspiring August box options were the other motivation for me.  (I hit "skip" the second I finished browsing through the August open window.)

 

I have to wonder if Julep will try to make some more interesting and unusual options available now, so they can pull back some business that might be migrating over to Bondi.  It would be horrible and wonderful simultaneously if both boxes ended up being great on a regular basis, so that it became hard to choose between them.

I think it would take losing a large percentage of subscribers for Julep to do anything differently. Even if they were to suddenly "get interesting" they would also need to fix their goopy formulas and seriously up their customer service game to come even close to competing with Bondi in my eyes. Two great boxes to choose from in the same month? I would choose Bondi every time.

You make great points, MissTrix.  I haven't ever tried Bondi polishes yet, so once I do I will probably be in your camp completely.
