I’m in sticker shock. I’ve never gotten more compliments on my hands than when I dress them in the hottest nail trend — nail stickers. From boutique brands like Inque to major players including Sally Hansen and OPI, nail companies are launching wraps that you simply stick on nails. As I’ve displayed in previous posts, they come in all kinds of fun patterns and colors that could take hours to create with a regular lacquer. The latest ones I applied (shown right) are the new celebrity-inspired leopard print designs from Broadway Nails.
Pros: Like most on the market, the Broadway Nail set comes with nail strips in a variety of sizes as well as a double-edged file that has a soft end to help the wraps adhere wrinkle-free and a rough end to file away excess material. They were easy to apply and even easier to remove. Just peel them off! If you’re wondering, they didn’t damage my nails.
Cons: Here’s my beef. The material of these stickers is a bit flimsier than other brands I’ve tried so it was trickier to get them on my nail completely crinkle-free. I also noticed that they started to look worn just after a couple of days.
Overall report: I’d wear them again. They’re chic, convenient and a magnet for compliments.
