In January of last year, Scratch nail wraps caught my eye. They were releasing a zodiac collection, and I was really excited. If you don't know, I am a proud Scorpio. If you look up the traits of a Scorpio, I am the textbook definition. But really, I love all astrology, and I even have a tattoo of the signs I most resonate with. Sadly, I had to wait until November for them to release the Scorpio wraps, but I scooped them up right away.
But November meant broken nails for me. Actually, my nails were in bad shape for months. It wasn't until this past summer that I was finally able to grow my nails out enough to wear them. Posting Scorpio nails in the summer though? That doesn't work for me. So I decided to save this post for the month of Halloween nail art. The first day of Scorpio was yesterday, so it was the perfect fit!
These wraps came in a set of 16. They are decorated with lots of sharp angles to match the scorpion's stinger, and in black and red, to mimic the darkness and passion of a Scorpio. There was a whole write up explaining all of the symbolism in the wraps and how it fit in with the themes of Scorpio, that was really cool! They also came with a gold midi ring with the Scorpio symbol, an M with an arrow.
I love the colors and designs of the wraps, perfect for Halloween and Scorpios, and I loved the cute little scorpion. They were easy to apply and lasted a full week. However, the designs were so big and my nails are so little. I had to cut quite a bit off the cuticle side of the wraps so that I could get the important parts of the designs (i.e. I had to cut the arrows on my index finger in half).
Also, I need to just give up on midi rings. As you can see the ring fit perfectly..,as a regular ring. Fail. Still cute though! I really want all of the other sets now too, they are so pretty and I would love to have a full collection.
