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.
This is how the nail stickers set looked like when I opened the package:
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.
If you are interested to try the pink checkered nail stickers, you can find them here at Born Pretty webstore. The pattern is KK-27, but there are 19 more designs to choose from, and currently each of the sets costs $1.99 with free international shipping. Also, feel free to use the code MARIX31 to get 10% off any other product there that is not on sale.
I have one more nail stickers set from Born Pretty store, so I guess you’ll see more nail stickers designs soon :) and for now – thanks for looking! I hope you liked the accents xxx
