Espionage Cosmetics Nexus – August 2016

Espionage Cosmetics Nexus – August 2016


This  month’s theme was, “Bedtime Stories,” and yet again, they find the neatest little corners of the theme to bring to life in two spectacular nail wraps.  I had a feeling from a little spoiler earlier on that this shipment would probably include  the Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland, but you really never know exactly how it’s going to be executed which is part of the surprise.

  • Paint The Roses Red – A glossy nail wrap  with  splashes of red painted on white roses, a nod to a song from Alice and Wonderland, designed by the marvelous Sam Skyler.  In case you need an earworm, here you go!  I do have a fondness for the somewhat more subtle nail wraps because I get a kick out of finding fellow fans at the weirdest times, much like how I found out that the gal who sells me vegetables at the farmers market is JUST as into Ghostbusters as I am when she saw my Ectoplasm nail wraps last weekend and we had a little nerd-out moment together.  It’s like being in a secret, awesome club of glitter and geekery.
  • Emerald City Attire – Blue and white check sets the field for red poppies and a ruby-red glitter accent nail wrap.  I don’t think I even need to go into how well this fits with the Wizard of Oz theme – it’s just perfect!  Dorothy’s dress, and the field of poppies, and ruby red slippers, OH MY!

The nail wraps usually cost $10 each on the Espionage Cosmetics website, so the value definitely exceeds the cost of a month-to-month subscription at $15 per month.  Subscribers then vote for their favorite of the two, and the winner goes on to regular sale on the website.  That means Nexus subscribers get a super limited edition nail wrap that will never be produced again!  I don’t think the September theme has been announced yet, but I’m psyched to see what they’re up to for next month.  In case you’re thinking about subscribing and want to send me some love, hit up my  referral link!
