November Nail Art Society Bag

If you haven’t received your bag yet, and want to keep it a surprise, you might want to stop reading at this point!

I received my November Nail Art Society Bag tonight, and I am pleased with it.  For $9.95 a month you get polish and nail art supplies/tools to try out new trends.  I signed up for this because I figured it would be a good way for me to try out some nail art (which I dabble in, but am not too good at) without buying a ton of supplies and then having them sit in a corner because it wasn’t for me.

Here were the contents of my November Bag!

First thing I noticed?  3 Postcard like cards in the package.  One was a promo like card for the polish brand LVX (which is the polish that was included in the bag).  It lets me know a little about LVX, they are a 5 free polish, Vegan and they don’t test on animals.  Second card is an instruction guide to do Feather and Sequence manis, including all the supplies you will need and some tips and tricks.   The third card I thought was a nice touch.  All to often lately we are seeing blogger photos popping up that have watermarks cropped out and no credit anywhere to be seen.  The third card had 6 images on the front:

On the back of the card you find a list of the bloggers who were featured on the front, a small blurb about the blogger, their website and their social media contacts:

Now onto the bag and it’s contents.

First item?  A black sequined cosmetic bag (or nail art bag?).  Very cute bag.   Doesn’t feel super cheap, but it doesn’t feel high end either.  All the sequins are intact though and none look like they are falling off anytime soon.

Next up, feathers to do a Feather Mani.  I have not tried one of these yet, so I was a little excited to receive this.  It looks like my baggie has 6 small feathers in it.

Then comes the striping tape.  I purchased striping tape off Ebay awhile ago, so I do have this already – but I see a lot of girls asking about it because they want to try it out.  Striping tape is fun once you get the hang of it!  Mine came in silver.

The last Nail Art item are Sequence.  There is a little pot of them in here to try.  Mine came in silver.  These should be fun to mess with as well!

I decided to add 2 more photos to this post.  The material Nail Art Society provided says “Feathers and Sequence” which is why I typed out “Sequence”.  I did wonder if they made an error and it should be “Sequins”, but since I don’t do much nail art I left as is in case it was just something I hadn’t used before.  A quick google search on “Nail Art Sequence” pulled up images of round glitter/sequins much like I received, so I went with it.  It could be numerous people misspelling it, I really don’t know.  Here was the material provided:

As you can see, “Sequence” is used on the cover and throughout.  Either way, the bag contained small, flat, round nail art items.

And now … the polish!  The polish included in my box was from the brand LVX in the shade Legendaire.  Legendaire is a greyish lavender (their website describes it as a unique muted majestic hue mixed with complex gray undertones).  The polish retails for $16.00 on the LVX site HERE and browsing through I actually found a couple polishes of theirs I liked.  I used 2 coats of Legendaire for the mani in the picture below and there didn’t seem to be any formula issues.  LVX is a chunky square bottle and a black square cap which comes off to reveal a smaller round brush handle.  LVX is 5 free, Vegan and does not test on animals.

 

Overall, I am happy with my first bag.  I felt that for $9.95 it was worth it and I look forward to future bags.  The value of the bag was worth more than what I paid, the polish alone was decent quality and retails for $16.00.  Hopefully Nail Art Society keeps this up, and I don’t regret signing up for the Nail Art Society subscription without knowing much about it.  This is their first bag sent out ever, so I had nothing to base it on like I did with MyGlam (now Ipsy) and Birchbox (which I have cancelled already… this was the Birchbox replacement).

 If you are looking to sign up you can go to their website HERE.  This is NOT a referral link, they don’t seem to have one, it’s just a standard link to their website.

I understand this monthly box may not be for everyone, especially if you are not into nail art.  But if you are into nail art, or would like to mess with it a bit – this is a decent box to start with.  I’ve been wanting to do more artsy nail things on the blog, and this is a good place for me to start.

Thanks so much for posting this! I wanted to see others’ hauls before signing up. :)

My pleasure Melanie! A few seemed interested in seeing before they signed up!

I didn’t know there was a nail art sub! I may have to cancel BirchBox and do this instead since I’m into my nails way more than the makeup BB has been sending me. (Keeping Ipsy/MyGlam, though!) Thanks for the wonderful and thorough review!

I found it a few weeks ago the day after I cancelled BirchBox (seriously my box last month was AWFUL). I love my Ipsy bag as well though and don’t plan on cancelling that at any point! :)

Very cool! I’m another who is glad you posted this as I’ve been thinking about signing up for it but wasn’t sure about it. I have Julep right now, but can afford this one much easier and get things to ‘play’ with too. :0) Thank you for posting and your opinion!

I’m glad it helped Angela! Hopefully this helps people either find a new subscription box or save their $10 and find one that interests them a bit more.

I was very pleased with my bag, the only difference is I got a pretty gold sequined bag. Ok, I know this is petty but it really bugged me to read “sequence”…it’s sequins for goodness sake. Enough of the grammar nazi! I love the dusky purple nail polish color but had never heard of this brand before. I’m giving this sub a few months before I decide to keep or not.

Sequence bothered me too Lynda – but when I googled it, it came up as being the nail stuff that was in the bag, so I left it as is.

I’m curious: did the package/bag read “sequence”? All my Googling reveals is people who seem to be using the word “sequence” when they mean “sequins.” Is Sequence a brand name? Is there a distinction between “sequence” and other nail sequins/stones/etc?

I want to know – not just to satisfy my inner language snob, but if there’s a great nail product I’m not familiar with I have to find out what it is!

All of the printed material included in the box says “Sequence”. I want to know as well Kate, since I don’t do a lot of nail art I didn’t change what the printed material stated in case it was something I just didn’t know about. It may be an error on Nail Art Society’s part, I’m going to include the image where it says “Feathers & Sequence”

Hmmm… interesting. Thanks for clarifying! I think it might be an error on NAS’s end, but who knows.

I just updated the post showing the card I received with the spelling so people could see why I typed it out :)

Yeah I noticed they advertise Deborah Lippmann and Butter London, so I do hope we get those in the near future!

“sequence” is definitely just a common mistake. I see it all over the internet and I’m a little sad to see a company further perpetuating it! I actually cringe a little every time I see it in print! In any case, it din;t stop me from signing up to get the next box!

Reply
Lisa November 16, 2012 - 10:01 am

Yeah I added the materials they sent so people could see why I typed it that way! I know in the past I corrected something similar and the company actually WAS right, and I just hadn’t heard of it before!

This looks like a really nice subscription plan. I heard of another box called Laquerous where you get 3 luxury nail polishes to try out, but then you have to return them :( For $18 I would hope to keep at least one. Anyway, I would definitely sign up to this one! And yeah, I feel the same about the Birchbox, they get you excited every month and every month is a big let down. Ziploc baggies, granola bars and hair ties in a “beauty box”? No thank you

I read about the Lacquerous box and that would not be for me. I want to keep something out of it.

I got like 4 hair ties, 2 zip loc baggies and he same perfume samples way too many times. Was time to move on!

I know it’s been awhile since you posted this, but I wanted to say a great big THANK YOU for blogging about this. I joined just after reading the first time and got my first bag in December. I’m still learning to do nail art and a lot of the time, don’t have the stuff that is needed and this club sure does help with that. So far, I love it and am wishing there were more like it. Thanks again!

I thought it was so interesting for the Grammy’s and Oscar’s that they have the mani-cam showing their nail art. Interesting…haa
