I’m pregnant. For that reason, I’ve been avoiding anything with fumes (and just stinky things in general). My nails, though, have been sad for months. I saw these stick-on wraps the other day and thought, what better time to try them? At about $6 why not?
As I lay in my pregnant lady pillow fortress last night I was happy that I finally found a way to do my nails in bed without asphyxiating myself or my husband. I followed all the directions, and my nails came out looking very chic. I was so excited to show them off the next day.
Come morning, the tips had already started peeling. Now, if you ask my husband, I’m a pretty active sleeper, but I don’t think that should result in tip wear. I tried to salvage the tips with a coat of clear polish, but to no avail. After my morning shower, one whole nail had just peeled itself off, and the others had started to follow it’s lead. Having OCD, I can’t walk around and just wait for my nail polish to peel off by itself throughout the day, so I just removed them all (not hard since they were all peeling off anyway) and chalked it up to just another bad product experience. One that YOU can learn from!
I don’t recommend this product. The stickers simply don’t stick, and can’t even last through 8 hours of me sleeping! In my opinion you may as well eat your $6.
