My Fight with Nail Strips

Hey y'all. Today I want to talk to y'all about some nail strips. Some really, really, really frustrating nail strips. You see, I received these in my Influenster Varsity VoxBox. I thought that I would give them a more in depth review about why I didn't like them, instead of the short shrug that I mentioned before. 


I cleaned my nails of all trace of polish that I could find on my nails (and you know, I get into the nooks and crannies whenever I paint my nails). Then put some lotion of my hands, and then removed the lotion from my finger nails with some nail polish remover on a cotton ball. 

Afterwards, I took a look at the packaging. It was a kind of daunting task, especially since I had only ever dealt with nail strips one time before. I was kind of put off as I pulled them out of the packaging because they were gold. See, I'm really cool toned and the thought of wearing anything gold makes me quiver. I decided to give it a shot anyways, because why not. 

I found the nail strips that fit my nails the best, and then put them on one by one. I didn't have as much trouble with the nails that only had the jewels down the center, but the jewels all over the nails gave me so many issues. The ends didn't really look right because they had to be filed down. It seems like there could be an easier way? I'm not really sure. I'm still not too sure what I think about them 100%. How do you think they look? Either way, I'm not sold just yet. 

Short Review: I didn't like these nail strips because I had a ton of trouble applying them. The sequins didn't really help because it's insanely difficult to cut the strips where the sequins are. I didn't like it, but I wouldn't write the entire brand off. Hopefully they'll make something more my speed that I can try out. 

 Do you like to use nail strips often? Which is your favorite brand?

    1. Aw, thanks! It took me a hot second to get used to them, but after putting them on they weren't terrible. I'm just such a silver person!

  2. How long did they last on your nails?

    1. Honestly, I took them off ASAP. I didn't like the way that they felt on my nails. BUT the other nail strips that I've used before have stayed on my nails for two weeks without chipping. I like to put a top coat on them as well and it also helps them to not chip!


Thanks for saying hello! I love hearing from all of you & reply back to everyone as quickly as I can! xoxo
