Maniology Mani X Me Express Kit | May 2021 Stained Glass

Hey everyone! Just as I was posting April’s MXM manis last week, I received May’s box! This month’s theme was stained glass. Prepare yourself for some very detailed reverse stamping and 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

I have only ever 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!

May 2021: Stained Glass

May 2021’s Mani x Me Box allows you to reflect on your creativity with mosaic glass art designs, glistening new colors, and the gift of glass-like glitter.

For May we received two stained glass-themed stamping plates featuring a variety of animals and florals, plus loose silver holographic shard glitter! I wasn’t exactly sure how I wanted to use the glitter so I chose not to use them in these two manis. I’m sure I’ll revisit it in the future!

Mani #1

For this first mani I wanted to feature all of the floral designs on the plate! There really was a nice variety which gave opportunity for a colourful mani! I love the look of the stained glass on all nails!

Mani #2

For my second mani I wanted to do an ocean theme. Unfortunately there was only one stamp that went with this theme, but that sea turtle was so darn cute I just had to use it!

Final Thoughts

Stained glass plates can create such beautiful designs with reverse stamping, so this month’s box was a total winner for me! I already have a stained glass plate but these were still a welcome addition to my collection. I also love how versatile they are with such a variety of different animals and plants. I can see so many possibilities! The glitter included is also very beautiful, but just didn’t go with the designs I had in mind. I don’t use loose glitters very often but maybe I will find a use for it!
