Whew..say that title 10x fast..LOL.
Yep.... I paid $10 bucks just to see if they really do wear as well as everyone says they wear, and YEP they did!
Oh look what I received as part of my receipt....Essie is coming to Walgreen's..but since my Walgreen's gets everything months later, I'm sure this wont happen till Easter..LOL! :)
I choose "Bling It On", a very pretty shiny glittery pink.
The instructions were super easy...
On a clean nail, apply the sticker that best fits the nail, slap it on, smooth it out, and file the excess off.
After filing some of the stickers a little too close (creating instant tip wear), I got the hang of it and it was really easy! They are smooth to the touch, and very shiny. I love this idea! :)
The above pics are Day1...so here is Day 5...
A slight more tip-wear, but seriously amazing after 5 days, these salon "stickers" could have easily gone 5 more days, if it weren't for the fact that I am a "nail-head" and needed to desperately see another color on my hands....don't laugh...I know I'm not alone..... LOL.
They were just as shiny and perfect as the day I applied them :)
I even started to pick at it, to make it chip, to justify a nail change...hilarious..I'm certifiable, seriously!
Seriously, here is my advice on application...do what the instructions say. Then also do this...
1. Make sure your hands are warm and your nail beds are clean of all oils.
2. Once you open the "nail foil" packet apply the nail decals, at that moment. Once they have been exposed to air, they harden and do not apply as easily and they loose their "stickiness" (if that makes sense)
3. Apply them at night, so they have ample time to form to the nail.
4. Don't be fooled, putting them on was easy, taking them off is a PITA...remember ya'll they are glitter..same rules apply.
That's It! Definitely gonna grab more when they go on sale, and I will be using them for my next trip out of town :)
