Happy Tuesday, all!
As you know, for a while I was really into the whole nail art thing. My Pinterest boards were flooded with new ways to do my nails. I loved it! It was so much fun! I was obsessed with it for a hot minute.
Then, I got lazy. My nails were very sad.
But this weekend as I was rummaging through my extensive collection of polish, I found a Christmas gift from my sister:
So I thought: I should try these bad boys out!
I’ve been seeing things like this at WalMart, Target, and Walgreens for months now, but I haven’t really given it much thought. Mostly because I thought it was the “lazy girls way to do nail art” and I was getting pretty good at designs! But, alas, with my energy levels super low, I need all the help I can get.
Enter nail stickers.
The instructions looked pretty easy: place stickers on nails, fold down the excess, file off the excess. Ta da! You’re done!
If only it were that simple.
First, the little buggers are really hard to get off the clear strip. (And, if you drop them on the carpet, they get little fuzzies stuck to them. Not that I’m speaking from experience or anything…cough, cough.)
Anyway, so as soon as I matched up the adhesive size to the nails I thought they would fit, I did what the instructions said to do. I folded down the excess–which again, was difficult. There was so much excess that the adhesive on the nail started to get lumpy. After I folded it down and tried to file the excess, it chipped the ends of the adhesive strip! Needless to say, there was a lot of choices words being thrown about in my mind. I really hope babies aren’t telepathic in utero.
When I finally got all of the adhesives attached, I was pleased (mostly because it was over) but I did like how they looked!
Have you ever tried the nail adhesives? Did they work for you? What did you think?
