The Ultimate Birchbox Manicure: Nailing It

Operations associate, Loren, has a thing for nails—and we can’t blame her. 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.

There’s been a lot of buzz around the Zoya Birchblogger Collection and with such delicious shades, who can’t help but fall in love with them? This trio of jellies each works fantastic on its own, but they’re also great layering, color blocking, and doing all kinds of cool nail art. I got inspired the other day and thought I try the ultimate Birchbox manicure. Click through for details!

Eleventh Gorgeous Shows Us How to Color Block With Polish

Affordable fashion and beauty blog EleventhGorgeous is always a source of inspiration for us (living in NYC, we’re on a serious budget!). But we especially like that the site is run by a dynamic sister duo, Tracy and Stefanie Barton. The stylish siblings created a custom color for our Birchbox Blogger set—check out how they plan to wear the shade all season long below. 

Right now, we are loving color and lots of it! Just recently, we started color blocking our nail polish and the combinations are endless. There’s no right or wrong when it comes to pairing shades. That’s why we’re especially excited about the Birchbox Blogger nail polish set that we helped to create. The colors all look great together as well as on their own. Our favorite way to wear this trend using these bright shades is to apply Coraline to three nails, apply Kate to two nails, and then a sheer layer of Belle as a topcoat. 

Have you ever tried the color blocking trend on your nails?

How Kate of The Small Things Wears Her Custom Zoya Color

We were thrilled when one of our favorite bloggers, Kate of The Small Things, decided to create a mood board earlier this spring and enter our Zoya Custom Polish Sweepstakes. As soon as the voting started, it was clear that her gorgeous grapefruit shade was a fan fave. Now you snag this on-trend shade for yourself—grab the limited edition collection from our Shop! Here’s how Kate wears her new hue. 

I am so excited about the Kate nail polish by Zoya! It matches my mood board (below) perfectly and is a great color for spring and summer.


I love to wear my favorite scarf with this nail color because they compliment each other so well.

The Wait Is Over: Shop Our Limited Edition Zoya Polishes Now!

Fina-freakin-ly! Our Zoya Blogger Collection is now on sale, but only while supplies last. If you’re not up to speed on this limited edition trio, here’s the deal: each shade is the creation of a blogger we know and love. We’ve got a stunning coppery pink courtesy of Capitol Hill Style, a gorgeous grapefruit from The Small Things, and a to-die-for tangerine thanks to Eleventh Gorgeous

Not only are these the “it” shades for spring and summer (trust us), but the jelly formulas are incredibly versatile. A few coats produces a semi-sheer color, but we also plan on using these lacquers to layer over other opaque shades to really punch them up.
