Maniology Mani X Me Monthly Express Kit | Hocus Pocus

Hey everyone! Today I wanted to share with you two nail art manicures I created with September’s Maniology Mani X Me Monthly Express Kit. September’s theme surprised me in that it was very Halloween-y, so I decided to wait until October to actually use it. Make sure you check out my past reviews of this subscription box here.

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

So far I have only gotten the Express kit. With shipping ($4 USD to Canada), in CAD the price turns out to be just over $30 CAD, which I think is fairly reasonable. One of the things that I love about this box is that you are given spoilers of the next month’s box a week before so that you can decide whether you want to skip a month or not. You can easily skip a month on the Maniology website without penalty. I love the flexibility that this subscription has!

So let’s get into this latest box!

September: Hocus Pocus

This witch-inspired box is brimming with tricks and treats so easy to use, you’ll swear it’s pure sorcery.

September’s kit came with two cat and witch-themed plates and a fine detail nail art brush that has a beautiful handle filled with purple crystals.

Mani #1

For this mani, I wanted to create a girly but spooky manicure with all of the cat designs on the two plates we received. I just love the black cat theme!

For this mani I started with a glittery pink to charcoal gradient and used a variety of designs from both plates. MXM015 has a big selection of full-nail designs, so I used two of those to do some reverse stamping, and then some other designs to stamp directly on the nail.

Mani #2

For my second mani with this plate I wanted to focus on more of the witch designs, of which there were plenty!

For the next mani I ended up doing a similar sparkly gradient base, except this time a green to purple gradient. I then stamped a variety of the more “witchy” designs in silver onto my nails. Who’s the baddest witch in town?

Final Thoughts

Who doesn’t love a glam Halloween mani? September’s box was definitely a winner for me. At the time, I was sad because they seemed to skip Fall and just go immediately to Halloween, when it was only September. But now that I have used the box, I am super happy! The fine detail brush is also a great addition to my collection.

Watch my video tutorial below to see how it was done!
