Scratch Nail Wraps Love Letters mani

Hello, everyone!

I am super excited about the post I have for you today. You all know that I am a huge fan of nail appliqués, and see me post about them all the time. I was super excited to find out about this new company called Scratch, based in Los Angeles, that provides a monthly mani subscription box of nail wraps. I made sure to do some research about their nail wraps, as I prefer to use ones made from nail polish (these are the only kind that lay completely flat on my curved nail beds). I visited the Scratch website, and was super impressed with the designs I saw. The company works with artists and nail bloggers to create designs that are super unique and artistic; you definitely will see nail wraps that are unlike anything you see from mainstream brands. The one-of-a-kind designs and the fact that they are made from nail polish were enough to convince me to sign up for my first box. Each box includes three nail wrap sets, a nail polish, a nail art goodie, a surprise gift, and a bottle of seche vite topcoat (with your first box).

The first box I signed up for features designs from Alice from One Nail To rule Them All blog. I had a hard time choosing which design to use first, but after lots of pondering, I decided to go with the clear Love Letters wraps to layer it over my first holographic gradient attempt. Let's just say I'm obsessed with how my nails came out here!




I'm not sure words can describe how happy I am with this look. First off, I started out with two coats of Jade "Irresistivel" and sponged on "Deja Vu" and "Vermelho Surreal" (also from jade) a couple of times. This was my first time ever attempting a gradient of any kind, and though its not perfect, I thought it came out fairly nice; and the process of creating it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. After that dried, I layered the Love Letters wraps on top, and was blown away. I absolutely love how perfectly flat these lay on my curved nail beds. I also found the idea of clear nail wraps genius, as you can wear them alone or over any nail polish color you like! I followed the nail wraps with a coat of top coat to protect the mani. 

I can go on forever about how amazing these nail wraps from Scratch are, but I would probably bore you to death. Lets just say the company has a new, loyal costumer for life! I cannot wait to continue to show you the amazing artistic creations this company is bringing forth, and what next month's box will include! If you are interested in Scratch and want to learn more about their monthly mani box subscription and how you can purchase individual nail wrap sets, I highly recommend taking a look on their website. They are also on Facebook and Instagram. Next month's box will include nail wraps designed by Britney Tokyo, and from the little I know about her so far, I can tell her wraps will be amazingly fun! I'll see ya next time, and I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I did!
