Color Me Monthly Janus for January’s polish of the month

Color Me Monthly Janus

Color Me Monthly Janus

What color do you think of when you think January? Some months are just so easy – February is pink and especially red; March is green and the more emerald the better, April brings us pastels that would be Easter Egg perfect, October is orange of course. But what about January? Maybe navy because of the darkness of it would fit. But charcoal? Who would think of charcoal other than the wonderful women who own Color Me Monthly.

If you don’t know about Color Me Monthly it’s time you did. This is a one polish a month subscription ($7) made by two sisters that is  Non-toxic & Carcinogen-free, Never tested on animal, Vegan, Eco-friendly, Made in the USA, Shipped FREE!

Each month they pick a color they think represents the month. And yes, they did choose charcoal. A charcoal gray jelly. This was chosen in honor of Janus, the god of beginnings, transitions, and door. He looks to both the past and the future so January is his month.

While you won’t be able to purchase this polish until it hits the VAULT soon ($9) you can be smart and order a subscription for yourself or someone else as a last minute Valentine’s Day gift.

Color Me Monthly polishes last a full week on me without any chipping or fading. While I can’t wear every month’s polish I certainly can wear most of them, especially their beautiful creams and jellys.

Color Me Monthly polish review and Black Friday special

color me monthly black friday

You’ve seen me write about Color Me Monthly many times. It’s one of my favorite nail polish companies for many reasons. Since it’s a subscription service you never quite know what color will show up in your mailbox but that’s a lot of the fun of it.

Color Me Monthly doesn’t have many sales but for Black Friday through Cyber Monday (11/27-11/30) they have 20% off everything they sell.

“Color Me Monthly is a fun and simple subscription service that delivers gorgeous toxin-free and cruelty-free nail polish to your door each month. CMM’s mission is to provide environmentally responsible products with the focus on delivering quality ingredients rather than flashy marketing. Our eco-friendly nail polish is made in the USA, never tested on animals, and shipped FREE. After all, nail color should be safe, affordable, and fun!”
Subscriptions cost $75 for a year and $40 for 6 months or you can buy it monthly for $7 each with free shipping. At 20% off with the code BLACKFRIDAY15 it’s a deal that can’t be missed. You could spoil yourself or a giftee 12 months a year for only $60. I’d be your friend forever if you wanted to spoil me that way!

Let’s look at some of Color Me Monthly’s latest shades that were sent to us. These are currently in the Vault for $9 each (but you’ll get 20% off).
Color Me Monthlly Incantation

Color Me Monthly Incantation

Incantation was the October color and it’s stunning. This is an inky dark purple with subtle gold shimmer within. The finish is very glossy. I can’t find my pictures of this when I was wearing it and I feel terrible for that but trust me it’s a beautiful winter shade and not just for October.

Nature’s Splendor is the November shade of the month and oh so fitting. It’s a burnt orange with gold shimmer and a glossy finish. It’s everything that you think of when you think fall.

Color Me Monthly Daily Grind

Color Me Monthly Daily Grind

Daily Grind was the September shade that Lisa absolutely loved. It’s a perfect office ready polish and especially great for those of you that like a cream finish and no glitz. Lisa’s review is here.

Americana is one of my favorites. It’s a brick red cream that’s not too dark. It reminded me of Old Glory.

South Pacific is my favorite teal polish. It’s an Ocean Blue with Colorful Micro-Glitter. This wore like a dream and was easy to remove like all Color Me Monthly polishes are.

One last one (it’s hard to choose!) is Seven Sisters. I adore this dark starry night blue with micro shimmer. It definitely is one of my top 3 from Color Me Monthly.

While you have the chance, take advantage of this once a year sale using the code BLACKFRIDAY15. This is available through 11/30/15. — Marcia

Loving the Daily Grind from Color Me Monthly

If you love nail polish, consider the Color Me Monthly subscription box. I am so happy with the shade Daily Grind from September I have to tell you about it – and luckily it is in THE VAULT.

Color Me Monthly Daily Grind

Color Me Monthly Daily Grind

Daily Grind ($9.00) is a shiny cream mocha shade that is perfect for fall. Sometimes I find chocolate shades to be kind of boring, especially cream polishes, but this one is lots of fun. It’s very flattering, not a ‘fade into the woodwork’ beige or a sort of depressing grey. I wore this for several weeks and got loads of compliments. Plus, Color Me Monthly polishes are the ‘cleanest and most eco-friendly polishes on the market’.

A subscription is $7 a month and you can easily cancel at any time.  It’s a great way to try new shades and their seasonal picks are always right on the mark. If you missed September, head on over to THE VAULT  and get the Daily Grind before it’s sold out.  – Lisa

It’s time for a little Mango Habanero via Color Me Monthly

Color Me Monthly Mango Habanero

Color Me Monthly Mango Habanero

Does this scream October or what? Color Me Monthly is a great subscription for nail polish. The interesting thing about this new shade called Mango Habanero is that this was their August color of the month. Color Me Monthly was ahead of their time with this color.

Color Me Monthly Mango Habanero

Color Me Monthly Mango Habanero

Mango Habanero isn’t just a Halloween shade, though it makes a perfect one, but it is/was a great pedicure and manicure color for the end of the summer. The first thing I noticed when I opened the box CMM sent was the brightness of this vibrant shade but then when I started examining it in different lights I could see the beautiful golden iridescence within.

Since August is over and the subscriptions are sent you’ll have to wait until this gem turns up in THE VAULT. I hope that they get this in there this month so that you can grace your nails with a little Mango Habanero. — Marcia

South Pacific by Color Me Monthly

The July color SOUTH PACIFIC is a stunning ocean blue that has micro glitter in it that makes this polish glisten. You really can imagine sitting on the beach on a South Pacfic island and seeing this exact color in the water.

I waited to share this beauty because I knew we had a Mermaid challenge coming up and this is so mermaidy to me – the scales of a mermaid’s tail and the ocean teal are a quintessential shade for this group of blogging fun. South Pacific is already in CMM’s Vault and you can pick it up for $9 if you aren’t a subscriber. But why not subscribe? CMM nail polish is cruelty-free and does not contain toluene, formaldehyde/formaldehyde resin, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), or camphor. And for $7 a month you’ll have a polish that wears beautifully.

Americana is the Color Me Monthly choice for June

as  the flag billows

our folklore and heritage

makes one nostalgic

Americana

Color Me Monthly created an absolutely perfect nail polish to stand out in the sea of red, white and blue for the holiday. We’ve seen some beautiful shiny reds for the season but what we haven’t seen is the color of Old Glory, that is until Color Me Monthly created it for their June box.

Color Me Monthly always seems to be right on target for the month or season but at the same time they have a slightly different take on everything. That’s one of the reasons it’s such a unique company.

This is considered by CMM to be a brick red but when I look at it I see the color of the flag in its Old Glory-ness. It was chosen as the June 2015 shade because it was nestled between two very American holidays – Memorial Day and Fourth of July. It embodies the essence of both while celebrating what makes America special.

  • Non-toxic and carcinogen-free
  • Never tested on animals

Eventually most polishes end up in The Vault so you can find some of my favorites there for $9, but I love the idea of these beauties coming each month. The wear of Color Me Monthly Lacquers is terrific. I’ve never had chipping, fading, or lifting with any of the shades I’ve received. They last me a full week without a problem.

Take a chance on a week ($7) or save and try a 6 month subscription ($40). You’ll be delighted and see why these nail lacquers are favorites of mine. — Marcia

April’s Pixie’s Parlour from Color Me Monthly is a pop of spring

Color Me Monthly Pixie's Parlour

Color Me Monthly Pixie’s Parlour

Color Me Monthly has delighted me once again by sending me the April polish, Pixie’s Parlour. I love Color Me Monthly polishes and think they have a fabulous subscription program. For $7 a month you’ll get one of the best and longest wearing polishes for your collection. Whenever I open a CMM box I’m excited to see what’s inside.

Color Me Monthly Pixie's Parlour

Color Me Monthly Pixie’s Parlour

Pixie’s Parlour is their newest addition and it’s a beautiful purple with tiny multi-colored shimmer. It’s a polish that makes me smile just like the beautiful blooms that are just starting to pop up in the garden.

Color Me Monthly Pixie's Parlour

Color Me Monthly Pixie’s Parlour

The name Pixie’s Parlour has a little story behind it. The color reminded the owner of something whimsical and she kept thinking of fairy dust. That didn’t feel like the right name so she dug into the history of fairies and found something called Pixie’s Parlour which is a cave that all pixies were banished to outside of East Devon, England. Voila she had the name and we have a polish that I’m happy to be banished into.

Like all Color Me Monthly polishes, this wore like a dream. I get a full week out of their polishes without a problem. I say that every time I get the opportunity to write about them because it’s true. My nail tech is always happy too when I walk in with CMM because she knows there will be no application problems and no staining.

May I suggest Annapolis for a deep blurple, Seven Sisters for a fabulous medium/dark navy, Chiffon for a perfect lavender cream, and Just for You which is one of my favorite red polishes ever.
