Your May 2013 Unboxing Videos!

June—and summer—are finally here, which means your latest Birchbox will be in your mailbox very soon! We’ve found that taking a trip down memory lane is the perfect distraction while we (not so) patiently wait for our new boxes.

We love reading about new finishes and fun techniques, so we thought we’d give her a weekly slot on our blog to wax poetic about all things manicure (and pedicure!) related. Check back every week for Nailing It, Birchbox’s dedicated polish series.

Here on the East Coast, May is not off to such a flowery start. No matter, I have just the polish to keep things sunny: Amchoor from the Thakoon for NARS Collection. This brilliant yellow creme is perfectly on trend and is one of the hottest colors of the season
