August 2013 Bondi Box Review

Hey girls! Today's post is going to be a review of what I received in my August Bondi Box. Bondi is a brand new subscription box, that gives you 3 full size nail polishes and a beauty extra for $19.99 per month.(Mine with exchange rate came to $21.23) Also, subscribers receive a 25% off code every month to use towards purchases of their other polishes. If you would like a whole breakdown of what to expect with Bondi, please see my brand review here.

If you would like to sign up for your own Bondi Box, you can do so by visiting their website www.bondinewyork.com. Also, don't forget to check out their Facebook page.
In August subscribers received 1 of 8 different Mystery Boxes, that contained polishes from their current debut collection. Subscribers could also purchase additional boxes for $15 each, in order to build up their own collection of Bondi polishes. If you ordered extra boxes Bondi made sure that you did not receive duplicates. Because I received my August Box for free, in exchange for a review, I wasn't eligible to receive the extra boxes at a discounted rate.

In my box I got NYPD, Fuschia-istic, and Brick Road, and my beauty extra was a Suki To Go sampler kit.


Is a true blue polish. It is opaque in one coat, however I like to use two coats in order to get the true colour. It dries to a glossy finish on its own, with no streaking. I love blue polishes so I was really excited to see this colour in my box. It is going to be perfect for anytime of the year, as it is bright but not too bright. I cant wait to do some nail art using this colour. I think the first thing I am going to try is stamping with it. I can see myself wearing this a lot.


Is a bright fuchsia pink that is perfect for summer. I found this polish semi-opaque in one coat. I definitely needed two coats for full opacity, and true to bottle colour. As soon as I saw this colour I knew I needed to do a pedicure with it. It is so bright and beautiful, and I smile every time I look at my toes. There was minimal streaking and quick drying times for this polish as well.

Brick Road

Is a golden yellow. I love the name of this polish as it is from the Wizard of Oz, which is my favourite movie, however, I don't really love this colour. Don't get me wrong it is a beautiful colour in the bottle, and I could stare at it all day, but with my skin tone yellow polish never looks good on me. I traded this polish with a fellow Bondi lover for Uptown Girl. This is a purple polish, and I will add a swatch when I receive it.
My bonus item was a sample kit of Suki To Go products. This sample came at the perfect time as I am going away this weekend and need some sample size products. Compared to what some other girls got I am kinda underwhelmed with this product. I like that in September we will all be receiving the same beauty gift.

Overall, I am extremely impressed with the Bondi nail polishes and customer service so far! The quality of these polishes are amazing and I would definitely recommend them. Right now they have 10 polishes on sale for $8 so hop on over and check them out. I purchased Blue Skies and The Limelight.

**September Spoilers**

  • This box will be supporting a specific charitable cause and be co-branded.
  • Subscribers will be able to pick 3 colours from the Fall Collection.
  • Everyone will get the same beauty gift in their box.
  • The box will be tied into a bigger transformation of the Bondi brand, supporting this charitable organization throughout the month of September with contests, etc.

Disclaimer: I received this box as a PR sample in exchange for a review. I am not being compensated for this review. My opinions are 100% honest and my own and are no way influenced because I received this box for free.
