I was extra excited when these came in the mail a few days ago. I hurt my back and shoulder doing who knows what and I just didn't feel like doing nail art. But with these I could have pretty nails and no back breaking labor!
First I have Top Down, Volume Up, a colourful abstract design. Two things I LOVED about this. 1)While there is a lot going on in the design it works perfectly without being obnoxious. 2)In the past I have seen nail wraps with fantastic designs, but were ruined by the fact that it looked like an old printer running out of ink printed them. These do not :)
Each pack contains 2 sheets with 22 wraps(so 44 in total...MATH!) You could use these 3 or 4 times as full manis. Not bad eh? Each pack also comes with a NCLA nail file. All the instructions are on the back. 5 simple steps. I followed most of these steps.
The nails cleaning went dandy, and I used a coat of base coat. The sizing is where I hit my one snag. My fingers are long and narrow so out of the 22 wraps only 4 fit my fingers(ring and middle) without modifications. The rest I had to trim because they were too big or in one case was too round for the base of my thumb nail. This was easy to do. As they aren't custom made for one person, I would rather have them too big than too small. Next don't worry if your placement is off, these are resilient. You can peel them off and place them again. I did this to my pinky finger maybe 10 times and it didn't get any less sticky(but it's probably best you do it less then 10 times :P). Then I squished out all the air using my fingers. Next I filed off the excess in a downward motion, and made sure the tip was perfectly flat by pressing down again. Finally I made sure to wrap the tips, and added 2 coats of top coat. I always add 2 coats when I place something that isn't polish on my nails.
Light box. The rest are natural light.

So far I love these. It's a great way of having fantastic nail art but not have to do any of it. Also it was super easy to use and really hard to screw up. I can not wait to use them again! Stay tuned for my second part to this post later this week!
