MINI PENNY: You've Got Nail 49 // Scratch Mini Mani Box July

You've Got Nail 49 // Scratch Mini Mani Box July

The set I received in my Scratch Mini Mani Box is one of my favorite designs so far! I was able to create three different manicures from this box — at ten bucks, that's a steal! Check out the three manicures I made with these wraps.

For starters, I normally get really great service from Scratch. My wraps are shipped quickly and they always are responsive on social media. However, this month was really disappointing. I had really high hopes to get these wraps to quench my banana-leaf-obsession, but weeks after the money was taken from my account, they were still nowhere to be seen. It took multiple tweets and emails to even get them to ship these guys, let alone provide me with my tracking number. It was weird considering they are normally on it. A month later, they finally came in via damaged packaging. The strips were undamaged, thankfully! I'm hoping that I have better luck next month.

In this month's package, I received:
Fruit Basket Nail Wraps
Small bottle of (bright!) lime green nail polish [similar]
Two gold strawberry nail charms from Daily Charme

The biggest selling point for me on these is the leaf pattern. I'm indifferent to the fruits and was unsure how I'd use these, but found the opportunity to make a leaf set of nails and a fruit set!

The lime green nail polish is very pigmented! This is one coat of it on a white nail. It almost has a satin-matte finish. As much as I wanted to dislike this polish (because... it's so bright!) I actually love it! The gold strawberry is adorable, by the way.

Here are the three looks I created with this kit:

Banana Leaves
I used the Beverly Hills Hotel as inspiration for this set — banana leaves, pink, and gold! The strips are pretty good, but slightly thicker (and more sticker-y) than other wraps I've gotten from Scratch in the past. Regardless, I was able to use some green, white, and yellow polishes to fill in where the wraps didn't cover all the way to the edge.

Fruit Basket
For this set, I used all the fruit patterns from the set! Watermelons, pineapples, lemons, bananas, and the Strawberry charm!

Neon and Gold
Finally, I had to use the lime green polish for a set! I think the fluorescent and gold is such a great combo for summer.
