Playing with some nail bling

What do you think of my zebra nails?

On lips MAC Viva Glam Nicki
 
I'm not sure they're really me. While I admire nail art on others, I prefer sticking to my usual pinks and corals and reds. And mint... I love mint green polish.

These were actually nail stickers, Fing'rs Flirt Nail Bling, which were sent to me a while back for review.  I've seen them sold at Priceline with prices ranging from $9.99 - $13.99. They were very easy to apply. Just peel them off the sheet and place the sticky side over the nails. You are meant to apply clear top coat over them, but I was feeling lazy so I didn't.

I applied them on Saturday over my already painted nails (with Essie Mint Candy Apple) but by lunch time Sunday they were starting to peel off. If you look at the above pics carefully you can see they're starting to peel off... they were taken on day 2. I don't know how long these are meant to last, but I didn't mind as I wasn't exactly planning on wearing zebra nails to work anyway.

It's not something I'd buy, but it's a good way of experimenting with nail bling quickly and without hassle.

How do you feel about nail art? Yay or nay?

  1. I'm just like you! I love nail art on other girls but I'd rather go for my usual shades :) xxx from Italy :D

    1. It's just much easier sticking to usual shades that we know will suit, I guess. :-)

    1. It kinda grew on me after a while, but it's not something I'd attempted to actually paint on.

  3. It actually looks really good! Great for a night out or something short, sharp & sweet like that :)

    1. Agreed, they're good for quickly blinging up the nails.

  4. I love the design! Looks so pretty on your nails :) I haven't tried nail art stickers yet, but I want to pick up the Sally Hansen ones that everyone raves about.

    1. Give them a try, they're surprisingly easy to apply and lots of designs to choose from.

  6. Nail stickers definitely aren't my thing. I prefer painting my nails myself! The star of your post for me is your MAC Viva Glam lipstick, lovely. :P x

  8. Did you mean Viva Glam Nicki on your lips? I love that first picture! Those nails are pretty darn cool. I like nail art as long as it isn't too OTT (having a million different charms glued to them). lol

    1. Oops, thanks! I DID mean Nicki... all corrected now. For nail art this isn't too bad and OTT so I don't mind, but yep like you I'm not into ones with too much happening on them.

  9. Hee! I have two sets of similar products, one of which i'm finally reviewing. I didn't like the first but I've gotten much better at these. I applied top coat to one but not another so i'll let you know if it really makes a huge difference or not. I love nail art! When it's easy to do...not so much when it involves tears of frustration D:
