One of my favorite parts about working at Birchbox? Painting your nails at your desk doesn’t automatically brand you a slacker—it might mean you’re just doing your job. Case in point: Last Friday in the spirit of product testing, I sat down to paint my nails with my boss, Jenny. (Hard work, I know, but someone has to do it.)
When two coworkers share a nail polish, they are forever changed. And I’m not just talking about the mind-altering fumes. Manicures can be a legitimate bonding activity, one that breaks down professional barriers while also providing a much-needed break. At the very least, booking a salon appointment with a friend sets a date to sit down, relax, and catch up. Nail polish: keeping friends close since 3000 BC (give or take a few centuries).
In this spirit of sharing, Birchbox is offering a special deal. Refer a friend, and if that friend is one of the first 10 people to sign up for a Birchbox subscription, you’ll win a free set of designer nail lacquers—the RUFFIAN Crowdsourced Collection, to be exact. Each of these runway-inspired shades was voted on by our subscribers. Bonus: These lacquers are impressively longwearing. (Fox Hunt is on my nails as I type this. One week into my desk manicure, and there’s not a chip in sight.)
So do your friends a solid and send them our way. (Not a Birchbox subscriber? Click here to get join the fun.) If you’re the first of 10 people to get a friend to join Birchbox, we’ll return the favor by gifting you RUFFIAN’s knockout collection. All we ask is this: If you do happen to win the polish, don’t go it alone. Block off an hour with a dear friend, bust out the cotton balls and the acetone, and get to reconnecting.
