I got these adorable nail wraps (among other awesome things) from Espionage Cosmetics when I won a giveaway from Nerd Out App and received a gift card to use in their shop! You can see my full review below!
When they arrived I was super eager to try them. The packaging was adorable and I was pretty curious how they actually worked! So for National Sticker Day (January 13) I did some festive nail art.
I have tiny fingers, so the first thing I noticed was that a few of the stickers wouldn't actually fit my nails. So I started with the pinky and trimmed the edges to fit. I had to trim a few other nails but I got them to look pretty cute!
The process to apply them was pretty easy. I just ripped off my selected nail from the pack, peeled off the plastic from the back and stuck it to my nail. It seems to be very thin and stretchy, and it also didn't stick too much that if you accidentally touched it to your nail but needed to adjust, you could.
After I rounded the sticker on, the top plastic was easy to peel off since I couldn't peel it off while it was flat! The last step was to fold the sticker down and file it off. I hate filing my nails so i was dreading this step, but because it was such a thin material it basically fell apart really quickly and didn't take too much work!
It has an optional step to add a clear coat, but I wanted to see how long they would last on their own.
Turns out, I don't work well with things on my fingernails and I pick, and touch, and rub, so the first nail came off about two hours later. LOL. To be fair, I did have a shower in this time, so it survived an accelerated amount of regular wear and tear.
From what I could tell, the quality of the adhesive was very strong and sticky, and I feel for a normal human, these nails could last about 3 - 7 days, depending on your daily routine, and wether you choose to do a clear coat or not!
Overall Thoughts ★★★★☆ (4/5)
Ease of Use ★★★★☆ (4/5)
It's fairly easy to do, the instructions included are pretty straight forward, but it's definitely not a one size fits all product.
Longevity ★★★☆☆ (3/5)
As mentioned above, I wore them out in a few hours, but with regular routine and a clear top coat, they have potential for long term wear.
Cost ★★★★★ (5/5)
The nail wraps are regular $10 which is a pretty great cost for the amazing selection of designs they have available, plus the wear length you can get out of them. They do offer some discontinued designs for half price!
Style ★★★★★ (5/5)
I love the theme Nostalgic Nightmare. It's adorable and creepy all at the same time. Plus their website has a gazillion different choices and themes and designs. You are guaranteed to find something you'll love.
This is not a sponsored review, I bought the nail wraps with a gift card, but I did win it fair and square! xD All opinions expressed in this review are 100% honest and my own.
