The wraps are priced at $12 a set and come in three designs: Bitch Planet – Non-Compliant, Bitch Planet – Comic Pattern, & Sex Criminals.

Preorders have begun and shipping is slated for July 1st. From the press release:

Coming this June, Espionage Cosmetics—purveyors of make-up for nerds and by nerds—is launching a new NAILED IT! nail-art collaboration with Kelly Sue DeConnick & Valentine De Landro and Matt Fraction & Chip Zdarsky, the respective co-creators of Bitch Planet and Sex Criminals comics. Three new nail-art designs in- spired by the series will be available online at www.espionagecosmetics.com, and at a comic book store near you! Preorders begin June 1 and begin shipping July 1.

The married writers were drawn to Espionage’s mission to make cosmetics for people who just want to have fun with their look and support their favorite fandoms… with more than another t-shirt or pinkwashed “girl versions” of merchandise. As Fraction said, “Kelly Sue and I admire the work Espionage does, and loved the idea of expanding the outreach of our titles through their products. Espionage connects to an audience woe- fully underserved by the boring old world of “comics merch” — people like our readers. We’re excited to get our stuff into their hands — well, onto their hands, anyway.”

NAILED IT! nail-art is high-quality, self-adhesive wraps that can be filed to a custom fit, and last for up to two weeks with a top-coat. Available in a variety of designs and finishes at espionagecosmetics.com.

About the Collaboration

According to an Espionage representative, when feminist icon and kickass comics writer Kelly Sue DeConnick initially contacted the make-up company about a possible collaboration, “first, we screamed a lot and posted cryptic excitement all over our social media.” After that important step, “there was a lot of conversation about whether a feminist comic would be a good fit for a cosmetics company. Bitch Planet is all about ‘non- compliant’ women who don’t follow society’s rules for how they live their lives.”

And Espionage? They’re not your typical make-up company. As the website states, “We create products for people like us: Recreational Users. Cosplay Creators. Self-proclaimed Artists or Amateurs… we believe there is no wrong way to wear make-up! Wear it for your fandom, your favorite color, your chosen style. Wear it to experiment. Wear make-up any way it makes YOU feel awesome.”

Or, as the tagline for this new collection proclaims: “This isn’t about beauty. It’s about self-expression.”

Espionage Cosmetics: NAILED IT! Bitch Planet & Sex Criminals

The Bitch Planet and Sex Criminals collaborations join a list of other exclusive, licensed nail-art designs from the Borderlands games, writers Clive Barker and Mira Grant/Seanan McGuire, and comic series Little Vam- pires and Girl Genius, available at espionagecosmetics.com. “We make it our business to target amazing properties we love ourselves,” states the Espionage website, “And now they’re starting to reach out to us!”

About the Nail-art

Bitch Planet by Kelly Sue DeConnick & Valentine De Landro—Welcome to Bitch Planet, an off-world prison that houses society’s most dangerous offenders: non-compliant women. DeConnick & artist De Landro co-cre- ated Bitch Planet in early 2014 as a feminist send-up of “women in prison” movies of the 60’s and 70’s. De- Connick is also the Eisner award-winning author of Marvel’s Captain Marvel and Avenger’s Assemble, Ghost for Dark Horse Comics, and Pretty Deadly for Image Comics.

The Bitch Planet NAILED IT! nail-art includes two different designs: the “Non-Compliant” design is a neon pink and black pattern inspired by the series and the “Comic Panels” design features illustrations from the comics with a glow-in-the-dark overlay.

Sex Criminals by Matt Fraction & Chip Zdarsky—Sex is just a word. Love is a sentence. And we’re all alone together. Fraction & artist Zdarsky’s sex comedy series explores relationships, what’s worth saving, and the age-old question, “what if you could stop time every time you had an orgasm?” Fraction is also the Eisner award-winning author of Marvel’s The Invincible Iron Man, The Immortal Iron Fist, Uncanny X-Men and Haw- keye, and Casanova for Image Comics.

The Sex Criminals NAILED IT! nail-art design is the “Quiet Effect” featuring neon, glow-in-the-dark bursts of time-bending color waves.
