Hey guys! So pleased to have had some lovely responses to the blog so far 🙂 and very excited to finally get writing about some beauty products and not just rambling on about random things. I was also wondering if anyone could help me? How do I get my INSTAGRAM on the side bar there? Still new to the blogging scene so may need some help from time to time haha!
So, I’m going on a night out tomorrow night and I always have to make sure my nails look good. Is it just me who doesn’t feel completely ready for a night out unless their nails are looking perfect?
I’ve had acrylic nails for a while now but recently removed them as I find them hard to type with and with a huge amount of essays to be getting on with for university I thought it would be easier to just stick to the nail paint. The only things is, I’m terrible at painting my nails. I put it on and within minutes its chipped or cracked.. And working in bars doesn’t help either, as my hands are constantly in water when washing glasses and cleaning.
I came across these nail stickers and had to give them a go! They were only £1.00 and can be found in Primark. Now I am sure you’ll agree that’s such a bargain considering I normally pay around £30 – £40 for salon perfect nails!
I started by removing my
old nail varnish and buffing my nails to get them nice and shiny. For this I would seriously recommend the nail buffer block from The Body Shop. It’s fabulous! It is so easy to use – just follow the 1-4 steps on the buffer itself – and leaves your nails looking so shiny; it looks like you have a coat of clear nail varnish on. And at £4.00 it’s a bargain that can be used again and again!
Then it’s time to choose the sizes of the nail stickers. As you can see from the photo above there are plenty of sizes to choose from so you could even use these on your toes if you fancied a nice look for spring or summer whilst wearing your sandals 🙂
All you have to do is cut each nail into squares, peel off the plastic and then gently peel the sticker off. Be really careful as they can split quite easily.. (They are only £1 after all!) Then stick the sticker on the nail and cut around the excess material. Its that simple!
I love this look, I think it looks so professional and is soooo easy to do at a fraction of the price it would cost to have your nails done in a salon. I also heated mine for a few minutes with a hairdryer to set them. I think they result in a minx sort of style!
They also come in a range of different colours and designs, so girls get yourselves down to Primark and take a look at the different designs! 🙂 You could always experiment and use nail varnish and stickers to create so many different styles! Get creative!
Lots of love, Jessie. xox
