August @NinaNailedIt Monthly Mani Kit

Hey everyone! I just wanted to give you a quick look at the manicure I did with the August @NinaNailedIt Monthly Mani Kit by Scratch. Last month I did a review of their Monthly Mani Kits, which you can check out here for more information, including the manicures I did with the June and July Monthly Mani Kits.

If you don’t already know, the @NinaNailedIt Monthly Mani Kit is a monthly subscription kit that is offered through the company Scratch. Each month this kit includes an exclusive and limited edition set of nail wraps designed by @NinaNailedIt, plus two other handpicked nail art extras to accent your manicure! The price of this subscription service is $10 USD per month, plus shipping and handling ($4.99 USD for me in Canada; they ship internationally).

I have been putting off using the August kit because about half way through August I had to cut down all of my nails very short. I had played in a softball tournament where I played 5 games in 1.5 days, and I broke virtually every nail because they were pretty long. Therefore, I wanted to wait until my nails were a decent length again to use this beautiful summery kit. I thought now was the perfect time to use them, to celebrate the very last days of summer.

In this months kit we received:

  1. Beach Please! Nail Wraps: Transparent nail wraps with palm trees, popsicles, stars, sail boats, life rafts and anchors.
  2. Iridescent Loose Glitter that is really interesting. The glitter looks almost like 3D bubbles that reflect purple, lilac and greeny gold.
  3. Triangle Makeup Sponge: To be used to create a gradient design on your nails.

For the most part I’m pretty happy with the August kit, the nail wraps are adorable and the loose glitter is gorgeous. However, I feel like receiving a makeup sponge is a bit of a cop out for our third item. This may just be because I already own like 100 makeup sponges and they are so cheap and easily accessible.
