Of course I wanted my nails to look utterly fabulous for Christmas, but spending loads of time on them was not an option this year. Luckily one of the nail wrap sets from Scratch’s December Monthly Mani Box had a Christmas-y look to it, so I wore them to this year’s Christmas Eve and Christmas Day gatherings.
The Tartanium nail wraps were designed by textile designer Emily Wagner, and they feature a red-based plaid with metallic gold accents. The set contains four different wrap designs of different sizes that can be mixed and matched, allowing the user to customize the look of the manicure to some extent.
The Scratch nail wraps are a little thicker than some other nail polish strips that I’ve tried, an advantage of which is that they can be moved around and re-positioned without tearing, which is not always possible with thinner wraps. I did not use a base coat with these polish strips, but I did apply a top coat (in part because it is recommended by Scratch in the directions for use).
Aren’t these nice and seasonally appropriate without being over the top? (Not that there’s anything wrong with over the top, don’t get me wrong.) I was told that my nails looked like wrapped Christmas presents today, and I totally agree! Love these.
