Monthly Mani Box by Scratch Subscription Box Review December 2015 - 1

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).

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.

Surprise Gift

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.

Accent

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.  

What did you think of the Monthly Mani Box?

    • Here are the “Winter Wonderland” wraps on (pinkie and index fingers and thumb):

      I wore the other set above about 6 days before taking them off. Because you can seal with a topcoat, I was able to keep them protected.

  1. I need to get a picture the next time I put them on, but if you are familiar with Espionage Cosmetics “Nailed It!” wraps, the Scratch ones are very similar. My only complaint is that they are a bit wider than my nail beds, so I have to carefully trim them down before application or they would overlap and peel back.

    They also offer a $10/mo mini version of this subscription if you’re hesitant to dive in big-box first. I got the December version (and the one prior to that) – the December mini had your choice of 3 nail wrap designs (I picked the snowflake ones above), a nail art brush, and a bottle of Color Club polish in “Pure Energy”.

  2. Can you take a picture of what these look like applied? How long do they last?

    • I agree pictures would be great if you ever do them. Jamberry nails are too difficult for me. haha
