Nail Art is really popular right now. Sometimes you don't have to ability or patience to get the look that you want. My answer is always nail stickers when I am in a bind. In July, Avon will come out with a unique bunch of nail stickers called AVON Nail Art ($10.00). Probably the most intricate designs that I've seen in a while.
• Create salon-style nail art at home with no dry time!
• Dress up your nails with the hottest new appliqués.
• Easy on, easy off nail fashion.
• Won’t smudge or rub off.
• 18 nail strips.
I fell in love with a nail sticker called the Bows For You. It's a deep navy blue with little diamonds which form a bow. Out of all the appliqués I've done, this one gave me the most compliments because of the details. I would be in meeting and I'd have to stop and explain my nails because people were staring!
Let's get started on the application:
All the stickers are on a clear background and you have to put your nail underneath the measure which sticker would work for you. I prefer my nail stickers to be individually wrapped because I feel like its easier to measure which size fits my nail. I usually cut around the sticker strips off in to little blocks so I can determine which size works best.
On to the removal:
When I removed the stickers for the first time it was very tricky! They pretty much rolled up on me and I didn't know what to do. Patience is definitely a virtue with these because if you go fast you'll end up messing up a full hand. When filing your nails, I would recommend using a file that is pretty dull. If the file is fresh, it's rough on the tips. Please see below- First hand the sizing was off.
They lasted a long time. The only thing that I had was some wear on the tip which I expected.
Really easy! All I did was peel them off and soak my nails. I looked underneath and it did not take any of my nail enamel with it which that is a really good thing.
I wish that I had gotten the hang of these earlier. Next time I'm definitely going to go slower, use a dull nail file and measure up each nail ahead of time so I do not mix of any sizes.
