Monthly Mani Box by Scratch Subscription Box Review – December 2015
The Monthly Mani Box (MMB) by Scratch is a nail wrap subscription service. Every month Scratch collaborates with different artists to curate the MMB.
“Our wraps are screen printed on a thin adhesive with 5-free polish inks. They go on smoothly and last like real nail polish. Unlike other nail wraps, ours look like genuine nail polish when applied. Win-win!”
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Box: Monthly Mani Box (MMB) by Scratch
The Cost: $30 per month (+$8 for international shipping)
The Products: 3 sets of 16 nail wraps, accents & extras and a surprise gift
Good to Know:
Scratch also offers two subscriptions every month, the MMB and the Monthly Mani Kit (MMK)! For $10.00 a month, choose one of the three unique designs featured for the month plus you’ll receive the nail tools and extras!!
This month’s theme is BUNDLE. Our insert card says you’re going to “bundle up” with some hot cocoa and Scratch’s cool nail wraps. Design inspirations are drawn from plaid patterns, snowflakes and cozy sweaters.
Sweater Weather Nail Wraps – Value: $8.00
So cute!! I love sweaters and all things long-sleeved no matter the weather. These are creme wraps with designs in grey that give off a crocheted appearance. Scratch never lacks in the creativity department.
Wrapped Up Nail Wraps – Value: $8.00
Considering I hate wrapping presents ( I’m a gift bagger!!) I think these are so pretty and girly. I wish the bows were just a little bit smaller or came in big and smaller sizes. I wanted to cut them out and add it to Abigail’s manicure, but again…she’s just so tiny. Oh well, it’s the thought that counts.
Winter Wonderland Nail Wraps – Value:$8.00
All I think about when I see these wraps is this song! I can’t help it. I think these are a tie favorite with the sweaters. I haven’t decided if I want to save them for “summer” or wear them now. Either way, I hope it’s not the last time we see these.
Cuticle Pusher/ Accent Tool – Value: $1.00
Mini Nail File – Value: $1.00
Every month we receive a cuticle pusher and nail file to help finish the nail wraps.
Nail Art Flat Comb Brush – Value: $3.50
My first nail brush! Too cool. Abigail is always down for volunteering to get her nails done. I’m going to test this out on her tiny self. My only gripe is the cover. I tried to put the bristle protector back on after taking photos and it’s a pain. I keep bending stray hairs backwards so I’ve tossed it to the side until it’s time to clean the brush. Maybe I can squeeze it back on when it’s wet.
NYE Accent Wraps – Value: $2.00
I couldn’t find the full set online for sale. Our insert card tell us these are accent pieces for New Year’s Eve! I think they are very pretty and could be used for an accent for any special occasion.
Verdict: This December, the Monthly Mani Box has an estimated retail value around $32.00. The value barely covers the cost of the box, but I love all the wraps this month!! Scratch also did a good job staying true to the “Bundle” theme.
