Color Me Monthly April Review

Beauty and fashion are some of my biggest loves. One area that I have always been interested in but never been very knowledgeable about is nails.

I always see people with gorgeous nails that they did themselves, and it makes me super jealous. I have always wished I was better at not only applying polish, but also knowing which products to use and which nail colors are "in".

I have done some looking into nail polishes and found that many brands contain harmful toxic chemicals. That is crazy, I don't want chemicals on me, especially mot my fingers which contact my food, my skin and even my kids. Not cool.

And worse still, some companies test their products or ingredients on animals. That is incredibly cruel and so very sad.

So what is a fashion lover to do? Should you wear bare nails to avoid all those flaws? No, all you need to to is find a better product. But that could get expensive.

You want high quality, long lasting, beautiful color that is safe, Eco-friendly and cruelty free. And supporting our country with products made in the USA would be nice too. That is a lot to ask, and for you get all this AND have a fair price is a long shot.

Fortunately Color Me Monthly, rises to the challenge and makes it look easy. They give you all of these amazing qualities EVERY month for only $7 a month(less when you buy 6 or 12 month subscriptions).

That is unbelievable. Not only are you getting all the quality, safety, value and performance, but you even get the fun of getting a new color each month that is hand picked based on the hot trends. They are carefully reviewed and voted on to bring you the most gorgeous color possible.

I love how much care goes into selecting the colors. Many monthly box subscriptions just throw in random items, (whatever they have) and don't really care if the color is flattering or not.

I knew that I had to try Color Me Monthly and experience these wonderful polishes for myself. This seemed almost too good to be true and I wanted to make sure it wasn't.

I just got my April color, and I love it!

Fittingly enough, this color is called Clear Skies Ahead. Not only does that fit perfectly with this color, but also with the season. The warmer weather is rolling in and although there have been April Showers, May flowers(and Clear Skies) are just ahead.

I love the line "Courage us earned from Struggle." That is so true. It is so nice to have a little word of inspiration along with your beautiful nail color each month. Just upon first sight, I knew that I would love the Color Me Monthly service.

Once I tried the polish, I was even more impressed.

The color is so gorgeous! It is the perfect sky blue.

So great for spring, plus blue is my favorite color. Even better, April is Autism Awareness Month, and a huge part of that is the "Light It Up Blue" campaign which uses blue lights, clothing and accessories to show support for Autism Awareness.

I have seen tons of Blue For Autism Nails on Instagram this month, and I have been dying to do some of my own. Now I have with this amazing soft blue.

Now please keep in mind that I am not any good(whatsoever) at painting my nails. My 18 month old could probably do a better job, so please excuse the sloppiness, but look how amazing this polish looks on.

It is smooth and rich. The color is very true and does not come out too light or translucent. It only takes one coat to cover nails completely without any streaking or unevenness.

It is not to thick or too runny, perfect consistency for a quick easy application.

It dries quickly and has a beautiful glossy finish without being to glassy. I did not use any base or topcoat not did I buff my nails or push back cuticles or anything, and it still applied very well(except for my horribly precision).

It stayed without chipping or peeling even through dishes, bathing kids, scuffing them against everything in the house.

This scent of this is much less harsh and chemical-smelling than most polish.

All in all, this polish is incredible. I am so beyond pleased with this. The color is amazing and so different. I love that it is bright and fun unlike most dark and neutral colors I would chose for myself.

The quality is outstanding and I love that it does not have to be harmful to perform just as good as premium brands. I could not be happier, and I cannot wait to see what next month brings.

If you are a polish kind of girl(or know someone who is), Color Me Monthly is perfect. And with Mother's Day knocking on the door, a 12 month subscription would make an unbelievable gift(that keeps on giving).
