What I'm Currently Wearing...Revlon by Marchesa 3D Jewel Appliques Silk Rosette
Happy 4th of July everyone! I hope you enjoy the day, the fireworks, and stay safe. As for me, I'm not doing anything special. Will be hanging out with my sisters at home, grilling a good meal, gossip, and watch TV...Oh and I am off work for a week and I haven't figured out what to do with myself. Yeah, it was sort of a last minute decision. Fail. I don't mind sitting at home doing nothing but I don't like feeling like I'm wasting it.
I purchased these Revlon nail appliques months ago at CVS because I had some rewards bucks to use and I got them for a pretty sweet deal.
I'm wearing Milani High Speed Fast Dry White On the Spot as my base color and once dried, I applied the stickers. Yes, they are stick on nail designs.
You probably won't be able to find these in store anymore but who knows, you may find them somewhere.
The design is absolutely beautiful. I really love how they look on the nail but I find the application kind of a pain cause you have to be careful when positioning them during application. They are very sticky and if you have to re-position them, it can make them less sticky. I also had to trim them a bit so that they fit the contour of my cuticles and the edge of the nails. It's a meticulous process and takes time.
Another issue I came across is that they don't all stay flat on the rounded edge of my nail bed. So if I wash my hand or use lotion, the sticker gets a bit loose on the edges. It's so annoying cause I am itching to peel it off.
Have you tried nail appliques? What brands? And what do you love or hate about them? I love the beautiful design but hate the application process and the fact that I'm just itching to peel it off soon after I have them on.
I don't know, perhaps I'm not applying them correctly or there is a trick I don't know about. I have a few of these I have yet to use but not so inclined to reach for them. Do you have any tips or tricks?
