I've always been curious for nailfoil and nailstickers. When I go shopping I always seen them in a little corner of the shop just whispering my name(haha). And two weeks ago I bought two pair of nailstickers. I bought the silver and pink-armyprint stickers from Essence for 4 euros total. Essence has 14 different stickers you can choose from.
The packaging says 'no drying time, easy on/off, no chipping and lasts up to 5 days'. Time for me to try them out!
This is what the rest of the packaging say:
Your nail design will last up to 5 days! Can easily ben removed by peeling them off like a sticker. For a shiny finish seal the design with an essence top coat. Also applicable on artificial nails, gels and acrylics.
Here's how: Perfectly styled nails within seconds!
1. Be sure that your natural nails are clean and greaseless, if necessary push back cuticles.
2. Select correct size strip for each nail.
3. Apply the predecorated nail fashion stickers onto your nails.
Important; Place rounded edge against cuticles line, but still leave a little space between cuticles and nail fashion sticker.
4. Press sticker onto nail while flatten the surface through rubbing.
5. Smooth excess over nail edge, gentle file off excess of the sticker with essence special fashion file.
Then I tried Drama Queen, the pinkish stickers. The application was easier. Not just because I've applied the stickers before but because the stickers were so much thinner than the Light Forever ones. But still the wrinkles didn't go away after rubbing. Too bad, I really liked the print of the stickers.
How long did the stickers stay on my nails? Maybe 5 minutes. I took them right off when I made pictures. It's a real sticker that you can easily get off your nails.
My experiment with this nailart is.. how can I say? Not very positive.
Would I buy this again? No, but it was fun to try them out. Maybe I'll try the nailfoils sometime.
