Ello ello lovely ones, hope you all had a fab weekend & aren't feeling those Monday blues much! I myself spent most of this weekend in a pleasantly doped up state having finally admitted defeat to the blasted bum flu that decided to welcome me back from holiday. Fun times! Seems the bugger still wants to linger so today will involve more bed rest, sweet foodstuffs & some heavy self medicating whilst trying to avoid succumbing to comfort online shopping...FYI...I've failed already o_O
Now I'm sure that it'll come as no surprise when I tell you that when it comes to nails, polish is my one true love! Those little bottles of prettiness just make me happy, you know how Scrooge McDuck has a huge vault of his moolah that he likes to dive into & swim around in? I have a similar recurring dream except instead of coins its endless bottles of polish!
However there are other quick & easy ways of getting fab looking nails nowadays, one such being nail wraps. I find myself having accumulated quite a few different ones lately so decided to on occasion give the polish a miss & try a nail wrap instead. The ones I have to share with you today are the OPI Pure Lacquer Nail Apps which I found on sale in Fenwicks & could resist picking up.
The thing that makes these particular nail wraps/appliqués differ from others out there is that they are in fact made from 100% nail lacquer, which means they are super easy to remove with a bit of polish remover. There also seem to be a nice range of pretty designs to choose from, this particular oriental red dragon design which I just love was a part of their James Bond Skyfall collection I believe.
Each pack comes with 16 appliqués in different sizes so finding an ideal match isn't too problematic though you can always trim them down to accommodate the size of your nail.
Each applique comes with an attached tab which makes for easy gripping when peeling off the back & applying on to the nail
I found that these were very delicate compared to other nail wraps as you can probably tell just by looking how flimsy they are, therefore a bit more attention is required when applying & I definitely need to practice my nail wrap application!
As I was saying...will most definitely work on my nail wrap technique! Haha! I was a wee bit too vigourous with a few & ended up tearing them a tad however I managed to get all 10 nails done without too much drama & was pretty happy with the finished result.
Especially loving the glossy finish & pretty design! Compared to other nail wraps I've tried so far, after getting past the initial fiddly application, I really do like these ones, especially with their easy removal & there are some really gorgeous designs to have fun with. The OPI Pure Lacquer Nail Apps retail for around £13 which is a wee bit pricey in my opinion however they can also be found on Amazon for a fraction of the price so are worth checking out!
Thanks for reading dolls! Are you a fan of nail wraps?
Lotsa love to ya!
