Zombie Killer Nails

Traditional cosmetics and beauty product companies just don’t see geek girls as a target customer—so wrong. So... so wrong. Yes, we care about our eyeliner, our lips, and nails—we just have other things going on. Conventions to swarm. Raids to lead. Theses to write. Games to master. Computers to take apart and make better. Galaxies to learn about. You get the point. We have priorities. Just not typical ones.

High-quality nail wraps.

Nebula Nails
Nebula Nails

Ladies, these are 10,000 leagues beyond drug-store press-ons or those mutant claws you loved in 4th grade. Our self-adhesive nail wraps give you perfect nails without layers of paint, time to dry, and the inevitable sadness that it never looks like you want it to. Each set of nails comes with several sizes to ensure the perfect fit. Just remove them from the package, press and shape to your nail, et voila! The perfect home-manicure for people who don’t have time to sit around recreating another Pinterest idea.

Here are ALL of the glorious Nailed It! Designs currently unlocked!

Nerd-inspired, you say? 

NAILED IT! nail wraps rock the most amazing collection of geeky designs you’ve never seen before. 

UPDATE: International Shipping is now available! See the FAQ for directions and details!

Who is Espionage Cosmetics?

Team Awesome
Team Awesome

Espionage Cosmetics was founded by a professional Make-up Artist and a USMC Staff Sergeant, and is run by an all-pro, all-nerd team that is passionate about all of the geeky stuff in the ‘verse. Annnnnd, we love pretty stuff too! We are based out of Tacoma, Washington, but you can follow the glitter trail to find us at conventions and comic book stores all along the West Coast—and spreading!

What does your contribution cover?

Our goal will cover 8 different designs of nail wraps to be made, packaged, and shipped. Even more awesome, hitting our goal will allow us to compensate our very loyal and amazingly talented professional staff—makeup and hair artists, photographers, production designers, wardrobe, graphic artists, and ALL THE THINGS. They've been working for a year and half for FREE to make Espionage Cosmetics an indomitable force for niche nerd cosmetics and beauty products. It's payback time!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Espionage Cosmetics is already a functioning, successful, actively growing company—we are focused, accountable, and our entire Kickstarter Team are certified experts in GSD. Espionage has remained debt-free for its entire existence because of hawk-eyed attention to detail and flawless execution. In many ways, the NAILED IT! Kickstarter is just another product release… a huge, big-deal, extra-glitter-filled product release. What that means is, we've already tested and proven our design, production, and distribution processes, and we've triple checked to make sure we have back-up plans in place.

Will the nail wraps be high-quality? Absolutely. We experimented with several suppliers, and we chose the best of the best to produce our nail art. We all know how frustrating poor quality products are—ain’t nobody got time for that!

What if something falls through with the “best of the best” vendor? We already have an amazing back-up vendor in place and we have a back-up for that back-up. We’ve already built time into our delivery schedule to account for any unexpected mishaps or delays.

Shipping Notes:
-Within the US shipping is included in your chosen reward level.
-Shipping to Canada and Mexico will cost $10 in addition to your reward level.
-Anywhere else will cost $20 in addition to your reward level.
We looked hard into cheaper shipping options, but unfortunately just because the wraps are small doesn't mean the price to ship them internationally is as well.

Bottom line: This is not a Kickstarter where you’re funding a “Maybe.” Its almost like you’re pre-ordering a kick-ass product and supporting a small, woman-owned, all-nerd business with a proven track record, except that we can’t do this without you. We’ve taken this project as far as we can on our own, and now we need your help to complete it.

If we are funded, this is happening. Our word is our bond.

For the Horde!
