Pink checkered nail stickers for accents

I think I’m starting to fall in love with all kinds of nail wraps and stickers. Today I’d love to show you a simple nail design done with 2 nail polishes and a set of pink checkered nail wraps that I got from Born Pretty store for review.

Pink checkered nail wraps

This is how the nail stickers set looked like when I opened the package:

Pink and black checkered nail wraps

There are 12 pink & black checkered strips of 6 different sizes, the widest strip is 25x15mm and the smallest is 24x9mm. As for the application, I chose 2 strips of the size I needed for my accent nails, and I applied the stickers directly on my naked nails. I didn’t need any correction near the cuticles line, and on the tips I filed off the excess. However, the application itself wasn’t as easy as it sounds. The stickers didn’t want to stretch properly over the curves of the nails, and I had to do tiny cuts to make the wraps fit better. Finally, I applied a coat of a clear top to make the surface more shiny.

I cannot say anything about the wear time, as I did my nails yesterday before going to bed, and I was wearing them all day today. The removal was easy – I held my hands in warm water, and then I simply peeled the stickers off the nails.

The polishes I used to complete the checkered nail look:

  • OPI Shorts Story – pure pink creme
  • Cult Nails Nevermore – black creme

Overall, the quality of the wraps is ok and they are wearable, but I wouldn’t recommend them for those who never tried nail wraps before, because the application process requires experience, patience and time. I was actually glad I decided to do just 2 checkered accent nails, because I was sleepy and tired.

      Thank you Ina :) The combo is quite simple, I didn’t want to make the look too bling-y decorating the rest of the nails with studs and rhinestones since the checkered pattern is eye-catchy itself, but if to aim for a glam/party look I think a few golden studs can add to the design :)

  2. Sometimes water decals and nail stickers are very convenient when you want to get a beautiful manicure very quickly! :-) Nice design, perfect manicure! :-)

  3. I like it, this decal is really nice and it would be a little too much for me for a full manicure :)
