It's that time again...another Nail Art Society kit! This is March 2014's kit and it is called The Denim Blues and features Habit Cosmetics! The items in the kit came packaged in a branded Nail Art Society pouch (like the last few months) and denim tissue paper. This was such a cute touch...it definitely brought a smile to my face when I opened the box!
This month's kit includes:
- 1 Habit Cosmetics polish (Blue Velvet or Belle Epoque)
- 2 sheets of zipper water decals (silver and gold)
- Orange wood stick
- Info card
The star of the show here is the Habit Cosmetics polish. Habit is a new-to-me brand that I was excited to try. Habit polishes contain myrrh extract which acts as an alternative to chemical-based nail strengtheners. The polishes are 3-free, camphor-free, and not tested on animals. I love the packaging...the bamboo overcap and Forest Stewardship Council Certified box are eco-friendly! To learn more about Habit Cosmetics, check out their [website].
I applied two easy coats of Habit Cosmetics Belle Epoque. The polish had a nice and easy formula and went on well. Once that dried, I applied one of the zipper water decals in silver and sealed everything in with Out the Door. Let's be honest - I don't love working with water decals. They can look really cool, but they take a different kind of skill than the nail art I usually do! I'm just not patient enough I guess!
So for me, the Habit Cosmetics polish makes this kit worth it. These polishes retail for $18 each! I'm not a huge water decal fan (personally) so this wasn't my favorite nail art kit of all time, but I'm loving the polish!
If you're not familiar with Nail Art Society, let me introduce you! Nail Art Society curates a monthly nail art kit that arrives on your doorstep for $11.95+shipping each month. Every month features a different theme and different brands, so you never know what you'll get! I'll be honest, some months, I'm obsessed! Other months, it's not quite my style, but it pushes me out of my comfort zone in a way that is fun and helps me grow as a nail artist! Many of the monthly kits are available in the Nail Art Society A La Carte shop, so you can always wait and purchase them individually if you're not comfortable with a subscription.
