This month’s theme is “MELT”. The wrap designs are from Scratch founder, Chelsea Kent. The insert card says that the wraps are inspired by the summer heat and how desert heat waves play tricks on our eyes.
Bee Happy Nail Wrap – Summer Sale Value: $8.00
These are so cute!! Last month I figured out a way to cut the wraps down to put on Abigail’s toes. It was really cute. I’m going to save these to dress her little piggies. I think it will be super cute and unique.
Shape Up Nail Wrap – Summer Sale Value: $8.00
This wrap is my least favorite of the three. I’m really liking the see-through wraps, though.
Desert Dreams Nail Wrap – Summer Sale Value: $8.00
Call me crazy, this is my favorite wrap this month. There are endless possibilities with clear wraps and I’ve got all sorts of ideas for these.
Ginger+Liz Protect Nourish Remove Nail Lacquer Remover Wipes – Value: $9.00
I’m so excited to try these out on Abigail. Sometimes she has little cuts on her fingers and the acetone polish remover stings. Online it says these prevent your nail beds from splitting and are great for expecting mothers because of it’s light fragrance.
Honey Bee Key Ring – Value: $10.00?
Aww! It’s so cute. I don’t know the actual brand, but I found a variety of the same charm on Etsy around this price range. Side Note: I’ve been stung by a bee, and still run from bees, but still think character bees are cute… is that weird or what?!
KM Nail Glue 2g- Value: $1.00
I believe that this is for acrylic nails only. I could be wrong. I’ve never used glue like this before, so I think I will pass this along to a friend with acrylic nails just to be safe.
I wish this item came with instructions.
Nail File – Value: $1.00
Cuticle Pusher/Accent Tool – Value: $1.00
Nail Accent – Value: $1.00
I wish that there were a few more in the bag just in case I mess up, lose one down the sink or drop it on the carpet and then can’t find it. (Who’s done that before?)
Verdict: This month’s box had an estimated value of $47.00. I really enjoy this subscription and the curation. You can really see that Scratch really thinks each box through and finds the coolest gifts that tie everything together. The application process is fairly easy for adult fingers; and there are a ton of tutorials available on the Scratch website for those that want to take it to the next level.
