My Mani Box Review - A Tangled Web November 2018

Press  Sample

Hey there!  Oh should I say Aloha since I'm currently enjoying my Maui vacation.  Everyone else is getting a good night's sleep to prepare for our Road To Hana trip tomorrow (which, as far as I understand it, is a full day drive around the island).  I get crazy motion sickness but I put an anti-motion sickness patch behind my ear and have a purse full of drugs so I'm hoping I won't be getting sick on the side of the road tomorrow.  But before that, I have another My Mani Box review for everyone.  My Mani Box is Beautometry's nail art subscription box, always with an indie polish, 2 MoYou London plates and more.  This box was packed with goodies.  Let's take a look!

Maniology Women's Empowerment Stamping Plates

Affiliate Code

Hey there!  I'm currently sitting in the airport waiting for my flight to Maui (woohoo!) and I thought it'd be the perfect time for a Maniology review (since they are lucky enough to be based in Hawaii).  They recently released two Women's Empowerment plates.  Our nail polish community has a ton of great women in it (and some great men as well).  I think it's lovely that they designed two plates to celebrate us.  Since there are so many wonderful indie maker women, I thought it'd be nice to focus my mani's on them as well so I used all polishes made by some powerful women.  I wish I had enough time to do manis with all of the great women makers but I could only focus on a few for this post.  But in case any of you are reading this, we appreciate you all!  And for anyone who is interested in purchasing any Maniology products, please use the coupon code COPY10 to save 10% (or $5 off your first Mani X Me box)

My Mani Box Review - Fantastic Beasts (October 2018)

Press  Sample

Hey there!  Hope everyone had a great weekend!  Mine was busy but fun.  On Saturday I tie-dyed shirts with my family, went to a potluck at my friends', spent some time with another friend and on Sunday I met another friend's brand new baby and went and saw Captain Marvel.  By Sunday evening I was so tired!  I didn't even get any nail stuff done.  Luckily I have a few posts worth of stuff done already so I won't go AWOL this week.  Today I have a quick look at what was in October 2018's Fantastic Beasts My Mani Box.  This is the perfect time for me personally to be checking it out since I'm finally putting in the effort to watch the Harry Potter movies.  I got through the first two in the last few days so I expect, if I keep at it, I'll be watching Fantastic Beasts soon enough.

The Digit-al Dozen does Books - Romeo and Juliet

Hey there!  We're at the end of the week and that means my final book mani for The Digit-al Dozen's theme this month.  I won't even pretend like these were particularly inspired.  I bought this Romeo and Juliet plate knowing this theme was coming up and because my sister teaches Romeo and Juliet in her English class and I thought she might like to use it one day.  I did read Romeo and Juliet back in the day (for fun, not even for school, that's how big a nerd I am) but this is another instance where the movie wins over the books.  I have probably seen Baz Luhrmann's rendition of Romeo and Juliet 50 times.  What can I say, just like for The Great Gatsby which I did the other day, his movies are really exciting versions of pretty dull books.  Not that Romeo and Juliet is dull, but old English just isn't my thing...

The Digit-al Dozen does Books - Watchmen

Hey there!  For my fourth Digit-al Dozen book mani, I have my one and only freehand design this week.  Today I did Watchmen.  When I was trying to come up with book ideas, I was talking to my friend who normally takes zero interest in my nail art but he came in handy this time!  He said "does a graphic novel count?" and I immediately knew what he was thinking.  This was a book I read way back in the day, before the movie was released.  I remember ordering it and seeing it was a graphic novel.  In my mind a graphic novel was a novel, with a few pictures.  Little did I know it was a giant comic.  I've never been a comic fan but this book was great!  I should probably re-read it before the HBO show comes out!

The Digit-al Dozen does Book - The Great Gatsby

Hey there!  For Day 3 of The Digit-al Dozen's Book Week, I did a book I absolutely hated, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.  Now, it's bold of me to say that since it's a classic but I more or less detested every character in it.  That being said, it's one of my favourite movies.  I love how Baz Luhrmann adapts stories to movies.  Plus the soundtrack is amazing.  So my nails are a mix of the book cover plus the movie, with it's art deco motifs.

Maniology Spring Occasions Bundle

Affiliate Code

Hey there!  I'm back for a second time today because I don't want to wait to share this fun little nail art set from Maniology.  They have a released a mini Spring Occasions Bundle which contains a stamping plate, a polish, 2 sheets of nail stickers and an ice cube stamper that is currently only $15 USD.  Or, if you don't like the bundle, each item can also be purchased separately but the bundle is certainly a better value.  I spent my weekend playing with all the items and can happily say I had no issues.  If you're interested in any Maniology products, or the Mani X Me box, please use the coupon code COPY10 to save yourself some moolah!
