Bondi New York Nail Polish Monthly Subscription Box Review – August Box

by Lisa Heath

***Bondi is no longer available.  While I had no issues with payment and such, several lost money to their company***

I am always on the lookout for new monthly subscription boxes, so when I saw Bondi New York was offering one – I jumped on it!

I previously reviewed one of their polishes and it was fabulous!  Of course it was only one, so I wasn’t sure if it was a fluke or if their brand was really as good as they seemed.  To check out my previous review, click HERE

Here is the box I received:


I received 3 Bondi New York polishes and a lip balm.



First up is Fuchsia-istic.  This is a vibrant fuchsia creme.  I only needed 2 coats for this photo and a glossy top coat.





NYPD is my favorite!  This is a  medium blue creme and it’s PERFECT!  I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat.



Brick Road:


Brick Road is a pretty medium yellow.  This is one of the few shades of yellow I can wear.  The first 2 coats went on fairly streaky, but the third leveled out nicely.



I also got a clear lip balm in my box, but I wasn’t thrilled with the scent at all, so I’m not using it – but let’s face it… I got this box for the Bondi New York polishes!

Will I continue this subscription?  Without a doubt!  I am happy with the 3 shades I got.   Much like The Limelight, these 3 had great pigmentation, full opacity in 2-3 coats and if you look at the pic – the polishes look flawless when applied.

Sound like a sub box you want to sign up for?  You can sign up for Month to Month ($19.99), every 3 Months ($49.97 – save $10.00), Every 6 Months ($99.95 – save $19.99), or 12 Month Subscription ($199.90 – save $39.98)

To check it out – head over to the Bondi New York Subscription Page

Here are some more perks to subscribing to Bondi New York:

3 full sized polishes (worth $37.50)

A deluxe beauty product (we aim to get a gift with every month, subject to availability)

25% off all purchases of nail polish from Bondi New York (excludes subscriptions)

Free Shipping (even for international customers)

More Info on Bondi New York Subscription Boxes:

Your boxes will ship on the 1st and Bondi will send you a confirmation email with tracking.

Bondi’s debut box (August 2013) is a mystery box.  No set colors and each box will be different

Each month from September on you will be able to preview the colors.

Your credit/debit card will be charged on the last day of each month.

Not loving that months colors? You can skip by sending Bondi New York an email, calling  or starting a chat on this website. (Even customers who have pre-paid subscriptions can skip!)

You can cancel at anytime by sending us an email, calling us or starting a chat on this website.

Doesn’t sound too bad, and there is flexibility with each box.  I think I’ll be happy with my new Bondi New York Subscription Box and it will probably be replacing my Julep box (I will be trying both boxes for a few months before I decide which to keep)

What do you think about Bondi?

I can totally see what you’re saying about the pigmentation. Plus, I’m a sucker for creams. My hubs will kill me if I do another subscription box so I’ll have to live vicariously through you! :)
