The BeautySouthAfrica team spent a lovely afternoon with the ladies from FoxBox. Here are their reviews:

Finding the time to have my nails done is close to impossible. I hardly ever take lunch because I’ve usually got a lot going on, so the idea of having someone come to me at the office was very exciting, not to mention extremely convenient! The Foxers arrived promptly, were very friendly and professional. It was a perfect 20 minute mani + a Vinylux paint (Asphalt) which left my hands looking great and loads of time to get back to my work without feeling like I’d been away from my desk for too long. I’d definitely recommend FoxBox to anyone wanting to make use of a mobile nail service.

What a great idea – portable services for having your nails done! I was so excited when I heard that FoxBox was coming through to our offices to do our nails. It’s exactly what I needed, a pamper session right at work! The setup was beautiful and very sophisticated. The ladies were very professional and accommodating, which made me feel right at ease. What I loved the most was that once my nails were completed they dried very quickly as I have a tendency to always ruin them. One week later and my nails are still looking great! Thanks Foxbox!

When it comes to my nails, I tend to care for them at home and seldom go for a professional manicure. When I heard that the lovely FoxBox ladies were going to be paying us a visit at the office I was excited as I have only heard good things about them. When they arrived they transformed our boardroom in no time with their portable manicure tables that gave the whole experience a very professional feel. The two ladies who represented FoxBox were very friendly and a pleasure to sit and chat to while having my nails painted. I was pleased to see that they would be using CND Vinylux as it is supposed to last chip free for up to week. My nails were lightly filed down, cuticles treated and after 30 minutes I had a gorgeous coat of fresh nail polish on my nails. I was impressed with the service and I definitely think that it is the perfect treat for a midday office break and pamper.

The FoxBox team is very professional and swift. A two-person super-team completed personalised, impeccable manicures for the seven of us in less than two hours, without breaking a sweat, and whilst ensuring that each of us felt pampered. Their very attractive mobile manicure station is set-up within five minutes and this includes all of the essentials for a traditional manicure. They offer a wide variety of colours – from adventurous brights to neutral greys and deeper hues. I selected the gorgeous Rubble colour, which suits my winter wardrobe perfectly, and is still in good nick 24 hours later – a first for me. I would definitely recommend FoxBox to any of my fellow colleagues or family for both corporate services and events.

Up until now I have never come across a travelling nail company before, and what a clever idea it is! I love the fact that you can have them come round to your house – it’s so convenient and the perfect excuse to get the girls together for a pamper session! I had an express mani and Vinylux Polish in Fedora (a dark red-brown). I was so impressed by the whole setup and the variety of products and colours on offer. The ladies were professional and super friendly and they did a great job with my nails – the polish looks perfect! I think this would be perfect for a hen party or even a birthday party with the girls.

I love painting my nails… I love it even more when I have a professional manicure done. But with crazy work schedules, I never seem to get around to spoiling myself to spa treatments. FoxBox popped into our offices and we were treated to an express mani – what a treat!  My nails were filed and buffed to perfection and then I was treated to a hand massage. What a treat for a midday mani treatment. I chose the colour “Ashphlat”, a beautiful dark grey colour – perfect for winter!  The ladies from FoxBox applied two coats and then a magical quick drying top coat, which ensured a glossy finish! The nail varnish was supposed to last for up to 7 days, but by day 5 I had to remove the nail colour.  All in all, Fox Box offers a great service – a real worthwhile spoil.

I never paint my nails so I jumped at the opportunity to have them done professionally. The beautician started my manicure off by cutting my nails, shaping them and proceeded to buff them and pushed my cuticles back, leaving me with a perfectly rounded finish. I was then treated to a lovely 5 min hand massage which was just what one needed at midday in the office. I chose the colour “Fedora,” which was a dark berry colour, which is great choice for winter as it matches easily with everything. She finished off with a top coat which left me with a smooth gelish finish.Thanks FoxBox, I enjoyed the treat.
