LIT[ERARY] AF Manicures

espionage-cosmetics-nail-wraps-dracula

I soleomly swear by Espionage Cosmetics’ nail wraps when it comes to making my nails look fancy. Ever since I started wearing nail wraps, I can’t go back to nail polish. I mean, I have a few times, but nail wraps are sooo much more fun and last longer.

I’m especially very fond of Espionage Cosmetics’ literary inspired nail wraps, and was super delighted when I saw that they have an “Ultimate Bibliophile” bundle! It comes with 6 literary inspired wraps including Pride & Prejudice, Sherlock, Frankenstein, Dracula, War of the Worlds, and a new variation of their Literary wraps with gold accents! These manicures last for up to two weeks, but if you apply a top coat every now and then they can last a bit longer. Whenever I remove them, I always used nail polish remover to get rid of any sticky residue left behind, but I recently found out you can use coconut oil! I highly recommend going with that route because it also moisturizes your fingers too ūüôā

The Frankenstein and Dracula ones were perfect for the month of October, and I got so many compliments on them! And did I mention the Frankenstein ones glow in the dark? Because they do!

Espionage Cosmetics: Nexus Literary Wrap Battle

I’m excited to officially announce that I am now a Nerd Makeup Ambassador for Espionage Cosmetics!

EC offers a couple of neat subscriptions called¬†Boom!Box and Nexus. With Boom!Box, subscribers get a new makeup item, a set of nail wraps, and other fun goodies. Nexus subscribers get advanced access to two¬†different nail wraps based on a theme, and they get to vote for which one they like best. Whichever design wins will be made available for everyone on their website, while the other nail wrap becomes an exclusive just for the subscriber. And for just $15 a month, that’s a steal considering that one nail wrap set retails between $10-$12!

I received August’s Nexus subscription which was literary themed and involved two of my favorite stories: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz. Okay, I have to be honest… I’ve never actually read the Alice in Wonderland books. – hides face in shame – I KNOW! I know! Buuuut, I just downloaded an audiobook with Christopher Plummer narrating both stories, so I’m looking forward to reading along with Captain Von Hot Damn Captain Von Trapp. If it’s any consolation, I know most of “The Jabberwocky” by heart. ūüėõ

Both designs were really cute, but at the end of the day I gravitated a bit more to “Paint the Roses Red,” which pays¬†homage to the cards painting the white roses in the Queen of Hearts’ garden. That one was actually the winner, so you can pick up a set for yourself on EC’s website now! I haven’t used either set yet because I’m waiting for the perfect occasion, especially with the “Emerald City Attire” since I’ll never be able to buy another set again. O__O

If you’d like to get¬†Nexus or Boom!Box, click here to subscribe. And don’t forget to watch my¬†unpacking video to get a peek of the Boom!Box exclusive item that EC was kind enough to send to me too! ūüôā

PS: You’ll most likely have leftovers or scraps after you use your nail wraps, but you don’t have to let them¬†go to waste! I upcycled¬†some extras from the “Computing” wraps I got at SDCC by cutting out hearts and sticking them on top of my painted nails. There was also enough left from the pinky wraps to place over my whole pinky nail again; all I had to do was trim it so it would fit the lining of my cuticle. Waste not, want not!
