Over the weekend I picked up a few nail applique sets from Sinful Colors at my local Walgreen’s. So far this is the only set I’ve tried. I’m not the greatest at doing french tips so when I saw this set I knew I had to try them out! What a great price too! Only $1.99 per set! I was so excited to try these you cant even imagine lol.
The instructions are pretty straight forward. Simply place the nail applique over the tip of your nail and fold the excess over the edge and then at an angle file away the excess. No mention of base coat or top coat.
Since I do my nails pretty often its force of habit to apply both. I got started with my base and then went on to applying the tips and removing the excess. It was so easy and they looked awesome! When I was done I applied my quick drying top coat and I was good to go. Super fast and so cute! I’ll insert the pic of the finished product here.
I loved the color and the way they looked. Unfortunately they started to lift in the corners and most had peeled off by the end of the day! What a bummer! I’m not sure if it had something to do with the base coat being applied or not. The cool part is is that there are actually two sets of appliqués in one pack. I’m going to give it another go sans base coat in a couple of days and see how it goes. Hopefully that was the problem and not applying a base will help them stick better. We shall see. I’ll report back after I’ve done a re-do and let you know how it goes.
Have any of you tried these and had a good or bad experience?? I’d love to know your thoughts! Leave me a comment below and let me know!
