A style that sticks.

photo-6This past week my mother sent me a care package containing a set of Sephora’s Nail Patch Art stickers. I figured I would give them a try. This was my first time using these stickers. They are really easy to apply and not to mention really pretty!

Before removing the backing from the sticker, fit the sticker to your nail bed. Then separate the sticker from the row. Next, start at the top and peel back the white paper backing, holding the gray part located at the top.photo-8

Place the sticker onto the nail bed. I found it helpful to start at a corner in the bottom half of the nail and slowly smooth the sticker out over the rest of the nail. If you do mess up on this step, it is simple to peel the sticker off and fix the placement.

After placing the sticker on the nail peel off the clear plastic seal on top of the nail sticker.

You will notice that there is a lot of access product. This is fine, using your finger nail on the opposite hand or a cuticle pusher to push the remaining product underneath the nail. At this point you will notice the extra sticker will start to slowly break. Gently tear off the extra.

To finish this simple look, file down your nails, and that’s all there is to it!

These stickers are easy and take about five to 10 minutes to apply. The stickers will last a long time. I left mine on for a week, and they were so difficult to take off, which could be a good or bad thing. I remind you that I play Division 1 volleyball. We are in our off season where we have practice and weights every day. Let’s just say I use my hands a lot! The fact that these nail stickers stayed on for that long is impressive!

These stickers are a good buy and extremely cute!
