Maniology Mani X Me Monthly Express Kit | Minimalist Galaxy | Two Manicures!

Hey everyone! Today I wanted to share with you two nail art manicures I created with a new subscription box, the Maniology (formerly Bundle Monster) Mani X Me Monthly Express Kit. This is a subscription service that I stumbled upon a couple months ago, only to find out that it was only offered in the US. Well no more! They recently opened it up to some international countries, including Canada, so I jumped on it!

The Mani X Me Monthly Box is a subscription service that delivers you Maniology nail art goodies every month. There are two different options: The Monthly Club and the Express Kit. 

Monthly Club ($25 USD per month)

  • 2 Exclusive Stamping Plates – Just for members!
  • 2 New Coordinated Stamping Polishes
  • A Surprise Gift Every Month
  • Free U.S. Shipping
  • Free Stamper & Scraper Set with your first express kit

Express Kit ($18 USD per month)

  • 2 Exclusive Stamping Plates – Just for members!
  • A Surprise Gift Every Month
  • Free U.S. Shipping
  • Free Stamper & Scraper Set with your first express kit

I decided to sign up for the Express kit since the only difference is that you don’t get the stamping polishes, and I’m mainly interested in building up my stamping plate collection! With shipping ($4 USD to Canada), in CAD the price turns out to be just over $30 CAD, which isn’t so bad.

So let’s get into this month’s box!

January: Minimalist Galaxy

January’s Minimalist Galaxy theme is full of beauty and reverence for our mysterious universe. Get ready to gaze into the stars and explore the unknown.

This month’s express kit comes with two spaced-themed nail stamping plates, and a set of four metallic gold nail sticker sheets.

Also, because this was my first kit it came with a stamper and scraper set. The whole point of these clear jelly stampers is to make it easier to visualize where you are placing designs. They are awesome, and this one seems comparable to the others I have been using so far.

Manicure 1

When I saw the space-themed stamping plate, M001, I knew I needed to use the constellations and the moon phases. Really, there are so many cool patterns on this plate, I was thrilled to get it in the kit. I think this matte black manicure with white details really goes with the “minimalist” theme of this kit.

Manicure 2

On the converse, I feel like this manicure is the exact opposite of “minimalist”. More, space glam! At first seeing the stickers, I was super impressed that we got so many! Four whole sheets! But I didn’t think I would use them, just because I am less interested in stickers. But I surprised myself and used them anyways, and they look great! I think I’m mostly impressed with them because once applied, they don’t look like stickers. They are very thin so they blend into the mani well.

Final Thoughts

So far I am super impressed with this subscription kit. Firstly, it got here in a reasonable amount of time! I have had some bad experiences with subscription kits in the past arriving so annoyingly late, that this was a nice surprise (and it’s coming from Hawaii!). While I haven’t used both of the plates yet, the one space one performed really well and I’m excited to use the other patterns. And the stickers surprised me by adding a really nice touch! Lastly, the fact that this subscription kit starts off by coming with a free stamper and scraper is awesome.

Have you ever tried stamping or thought about getting into it? Have you tried Maniology products before? Let us know!

  1. I think the box is quite a good deal for what you get! Definitely a worthwhile subscription for people who like nail art.
    Love both of the manis, as always! The second one is my favourite – I’m always so mesmerized by manis that look like the galaxy!

    1. It’s definitely not too bad in price! It’s not an incredible deal or anything, but it’s reasonable! And thank you! I think that one is my favourite too. I’ve always liked things extra after all!

    1. Yes me neither until a couple months ago! It’s pretty new actually. And I agree! The stickers totally blended into the mani. I think that’s why I wasn’t that excited about the stickers at first, because usually they look obvious on the nails, but these ones worked out really well!
