Essence Studio Nails - Nail Fashion Sticker - Catwalk!

New Essence stuff have finally reached our stores, yaay! One of the things I wanted to test were these Nail Fashion Stickers. I picked Catwalk! for my first test. They cost 2,19€, you get 14 stickers in one package.

Instructions on the back of these sticker are:
1. Be sure that your natural nails are clean & freaseless, if necessary push back cuticles;

2. Select correct size strip for each nail;
3. Apply the predecorated fashion sticker onto your nails - leave a little space between cuticles and nail fashion sticker;

4. Press sticker onto nail white flatten surface through gentle rubbin
5. Smooth excess over nail edge, gentle file off excess of the sticker with essence special fashion file - ready!

Essence recommend their special fashion file, but any file will work I guess. I'm using a glass file and I didn't have any problems. I filed down the excess of the sticker in one direction.

So first I was trying to select correct sizes for my nails, if you failed with any sticker you can easily pull it off and pick another one!

I didn't have any problems with placing, just the wrinkles at the side of my nails going me crazy but I pull them off and on until I apply them without wrinkles. That wasn't a good idea, because stickers didn't stick anymore on my nails when I pull them off and on a couple of times. I still have some tiny wrinkles, but I was happy how I put them on.

They really look very nice but I was so sad when I came to my pointer and thumb. I had to pick smaller size of sticker for my pointer, because all were too big and The largest sticker isn't big enough for my thumb! I was trying to put it on my thumb but it was a disaster, because there was still to much space left.

I add a coat of TC, because without they looks so plastic and I don't like it.

Picture were taken on the SUN, I can't believe it cames out but just only for a few minutes, I really miss sunny weather! sedih

I totally forgot that you can heat the sticker to make it bigger, I read this on other blogs, maybe I'll try this next time, but I'm not sure if I will buy them again. It looks cool but I'm such a perfectionist when it comes to my nails!

After one day wearing them I change my mind, because the tips were starting to lift and when I touch my face or anything else it scratches so much! They are maybe good for special occasions or something like that, but for wearing them all days I don't think so.

What do you think about them?

  5. Čudovito ti jih je uspelo nalepiti. Nohti s temi nalepkami izgledajo že skoraj nadrealno. =) Sama jih pa ne bi kupila, ker vem, da so samo potrata denarja. Raje si lak kupim za to ceno. ;)

  6. OMG, res si jih super gor nalimala, upam da jih bo meni uspelo vsaj pol tako lepa =).

  7. @KONADomania: Hvala! :)

    @nihrida: Hvala! Imaš pa prav, bolje se splača investirati v nov lak. :) Mislim, da jih sama tudi ne bom več kupila. xD

    @colorfulbottle: Držim pesti! :) Sama sem jih tolikokrat odlepila in zalepila, da na koncu sploh niso držale več kot bi morale. x) Ampak nekako je šlo, samo so mi še vseeno bv.
