Very time consuming
These took we me a long time to get right, and were at points really frustrating! However, once they one on, i loved them! They stayed on for a long time and didn't damage my nails underneath at all.
What the heck?
This was like Special Olympics of nail application. Total fail. I consider myself pretty product-savvy... yet I was so awkward with this product... it barely resembled nail polish when I was done!
I ended up throwing half of them away and donating the other box I bought to Goodwill!
Fun and colorful.
These are fun, easy to use and so colorful! Love the prints!!! Makes nail art easy. They are a little pricey but last for over a week and I'm very hard on my nails with work so I was pleased with them. The shape made need trimming. Not all nails are the same out there. I recommend at least a base coat so when you remove them, they don't damage your nails.
Not quick to put on, but great results
It was very fun to have flowery fingers for over a week! It wasn't that easy to apply, but at least it's not as smelly as regular nail polish is and they give you extras in case of mess-ups. If you have some stickers left over at the end you may be able to keep them, but the ones I had weren't sticky after leaving them out in open air for a day - maybe would work in a ziplock.
The pre-cut shapes didn't really work with my nail shapes and it was a bit of a mess trying to place them on my nails without the sticker crumpling around the nail bend. Also im not ambidextrous so using my left hand to place it on my right hand was super difficult! Eventually I got them on my nails looking somewhat ok but they start to peel off pretty quickly. Better to stick to nail polish / gel nails ladies!
LOVE LOVE LOVE!
I actually just wrote a post on my blog about this product...again! I love this product so much! It's super easy to use and has lasted at least 7 days each time I've applied. It's great that they have so many new prints and colors now. This product definitely lasts longer than a regular mani at the nail shop.
These are the best!
Quick, easy and completely durable! The first time I tried them I was watching my friends puppy for the weekend and, to my pleasant surprise, not even the tiniest chip! Even after lots of little puppy nips! I'm sold and completely addicted to them - had one set that lasted over 2 weeks!
I decided to give these a try, they were on sale at a local store. The pre-cut shapes just did not work for my nail shape and curves. I found that instead of just cutting off the end of my nail, it kind of stretches and doesn't break off. The texture of the finish on your nail is just odd. Somewhat, sticky? I don't know. And when used with a topcoat, it just bubbles. Plus once you open the package, you can't keep the strips you didn't use =[
I'd rather spend the time on my nails!
Not a fan
I tried the Yellow & Black Checkers and I hate it. However, I did receive a lot of compliments on my nails. But to me, it looked like stickers on my nails or the cheap nail polish you wore as a kid that you can peel off. It was quick and easy. I think I picked a bad color and allowed my 8 year old niece to pick out the color too lol. Mine did chip after awhile too. But it doesn't appear to damage nails and you can change it whenever you feel like it without all the extra work.
I'm very impressed with this product. I was skeptical at first but wanted my nails to look really fancy before I leave for Europe. After reading the instructions carefully, several times I understood that you need to make sure you wrap it over the edge of your nail, otherwise it wouldn't stick. Usually, my nail polish will start to peel off at the edge the next day on my pointer finger, but these strips lasted on the beech, playing, packing etc for the whole three weeks I was on vacation (except there was a gap between the strips and my cuticles since my nails grow fast).Where ever I went people would compliment or stare at my nails (since they don't have this product in Europe, I think) and they thought I had it done at a salon. I will definitely buy this product again some time. But it is kind of expensive for a one time use.
