September Nail Art Society!

Once again Nail Art Society has proved their awesomeness by sending me the September kit. It was a total surprise.  They went out late but they are so good I don't think anyone will mind. Also they didn't use the bubble mailers,it was a small box and everything came in a velvet bag.  So swank! Even though I got this for free, all my opinions about the contents are my own.

First things out of the box were the cards. First card (which I didn't shoot) was a little announcement that Nail Art Society has opened it's own store and the card featured some of the colors from Jessica.

The other card (pictured above) was the Nail Inspiration Guide and shows different ways to use some of the items in the kit. It also talks about this month's featured guru, Stacie Clemons. Stacie is a member of the Facebook group World of NailCraft which has hundreds of members from all nail art skill levels.  I will have to check that out, I bet the designs they show off are amazing.

Here's a shot of all the products in September's kit.

The first item in the kit is a full sized bottle of Jessica nail polish in Cinnamon Kiss.  It's a really pretty deep red/rusty color and it's perfect for fall.  I used two coats and  it came out perfectly opaque with no streaks.  I might have to check out the other Jessica colors available in the Nail Art Society store.

The next two items are Cala Nail Decoration 3-D Nail Art Decals.  The royal one is very pretty but I think the first one is my favorite because of the skulls and bats. Halloween is coming up you know,

The next two things out of the bag are from adoro. They are golden colored rhinestones, which are fairly big and some huge diamondesque tear drops. I used the rhinestones for the nail I did to show off some of the kit but I'll save the tear drops for something really special because they are gorgeous.

The last two items are gold and silver foil/flake. I have no idea who made them though.  They are so pretty but the gold I used was a little hard to work with.  The nail inspiration guide gives a few tips on how to work with it but I totally didn't see that till after I was done taking pictures.  I should pay more attention to things.

The last picture is just some nail art I did really quickly using four of the things from the kit.  I used the Jessica nail polish, one of the crowns from the Cala nail decorations, the adoro rhinestones and the gold foil.  I have to apologize for the quality of the last picture but it's hard to take pictures when your hands shake.

September's kit was amazing and I love everything in it.  If you would like to get your own kit starting in October then go to Nail Art Society and use the code OCT10 to get 10% off your first kit.  Check out the new store while you are there.
