Today I’ve got some 3D lace nail stickers to show you. I was sent these from Born Pretty Store to review. I’m not a huge fan of 3D stickers, as you may know already, I prefer water decals. However, this product caught my eye, and here the stickers are – on my nails:
The 3D stickers came without packaging, just like this:
There are two different shapes on this sheet. Being a practical girl, I counted all the stickers %) If I’m not mistaken, there are 86 triangle lace stickers, which means it’s enough for at least 8 full manicures. Also there’re over 40 long chain-like stickers that I’m yet to try. This generous sized pack will last a long time for sure.
A close up of the nail stickers:
The 3D nail stickers came with no directions for use, so here’s my own way of applying and wearing them:
- Paint your nails with a color of your choice and wait for them to dry really well.
- Pick the sticker that you want to use and lift it carefully from the backing using a sharp ended instrument – I used my own nails %)
- The glue on these is not very sticky so you need to use a clear polish or top coat to glue them. Put a little bit of polish on the sticker’s back side using a thin nail art brush, and then press the sticker firmly on the nail.
For the background I chose Orly GoGo nail polish, which is an off white creme with fine silver glitter. After applying the stickers I didn’t top coat the design, because I wanted to keep the silver lace 3D effect, and the top coat would have smoothed it all out.
While wearing the manicure, it felt as if I have some sort of fine medieval armour… on the tips of my nails :)) and I liked the look!
Next day, after 2 showers and some housework, the shine dulled down, probably because I didn’t use top coat. Overall, I can say that if you’re pressed for time and need to have your nails ready for a party or any other event, these 3D silver stickers can definitely help you to achieve an elegant and edgy look.
