Another month of Espionage Cosmetics Nexus has arrived! This month’s theme was, “Keeping Track,” and I honestly had no idea where that was going. The spoiler image teased a set of tally marks on a chalkboard, but you really never know until the shiny black mailer shows up in the mailbox. Both wraps are definitely right on track with the theme though and make for awesome designs, and I’m going to have a hard time picking a favorite for voting this month!
- Tally Marks – These feature a clear background on glossy nail wraps so you can layer your favorite color nail polish underneath. They also have a glow in the dark feature beyond the black tick marks, and as usual, these glow crazy bright.
- Abacus – This is a glossy nail wrap with a foil accent on the abacus bars. I just love the bright colors on these and how the foil accent makes them really stand out.
I like the black and white simplicity of the tally marks, but the colorful abacus is so neat. I’m still torn! The month-to-month subscription cost is $15, and since each wrap goes for $10 on the website, the value definitely exceeds the cost, plus, subscribers get first crack at new designs. Subscribers then vote on their favorite design, and the winner of the Nail Wrap Battle Royale goes on to be sold on the Espionage Cosmetics website while the loser gets locked in the vault. Next month’s theme has already been released, and it’s, “They See Me Trollin'” which you know is just going to be amazing, coming from the geniuses at the EC team.
I have one extra note since today is a big day at Espionage Cosmetics for makeup. Preorders have launched for the anticipated Colovaria Collection and RPG Collection! The company started with loose mineral shadows and now they are releasing pressed eyeshadow palettes. This is huge for the world of #NerdMakeup.
If you’re a fan of Harry Potter or The Magicians (or anything magical), definitely check out the Colovaria Collection. If you’re more on the gamer side (World of Warcraft, League of Legends, Dungeons and Dragons, etc.) you’ll definitely be partial to the RPG Collection which is packed with super pigmented colors. Or, you know, grab both of them because they’re both made of awesome.
You can check out the preorder launch and find out more information on the palettes at espionagecosmetics.com/nerdmakeup.
