Galaxy Nails

Hey guys! Thanks for stopping by. Today I tried some nail art. I have been seeing and hearing a lot about galaxy nails so I gave it a shot. I used mostly Sally Hansen and Wet n Wild for the design. Enjoy :-)

Kiss Kiss

 Welcome ;~) I have a popular brand on the scene of nail apps. Kiss Nail Dress is getting attention from celebs and blogers alike. I have reviewed a design by this brand before (here). I picked these up at my local supermarket for $6.99. You get 28 strips!!! 14 different sizes. The most I have seen sold yet for such a good price. 
 Kiss Nail Dress had no name for the design just a serial number. This was a hot pink cheetah print with simulated colored rhinestones atop. These are stickers when I applied top coat they fell apart. You do not need nail polish remover for any part of removal. I filed these a little too close at my tips. After about three days of wear I had some peeling and lifting near the tips.
 My hands are sooo ashy, lmao, sorry. Enjoy

Winter Nails

Quick post. I don't do nail art. I used my one lame doting tool for everything. Enjoy.

Why Am I Painting My Nails?

Omg! I am loving nail apps! I picked up a pack of China Glaze's new line in Cherry Blossoms. I am in heaven. I paid around $6 with change at Sally Beauty for 16 sealed real nail polish appliques. China Glaze has about a dozen designs. I also picked a feather style. For a few dollars less than Sally Hansen Salon effects you get a comparable product.
 Cherry Blossoms are delicate flowers with brown stems set atop a cream base. To be real nail polish I found these a tiny bit thicker than the Sally Effects. Because of that I was able to just peel these off. It did leave a sticky residue that remover cleaned right up. Application was still a breeze. Peel, stick, smooth and file. Love it. I applied top coat, but it did not add or take anything away from the look. For my accent nails I used China Glaze last season's Poinsettia which is a bright jelly red. 
 I just take pictures guys, lol. I want you to see the real product in action.

Sally Hansen Salon Effects

Hello and welcome. Thank you for supporting, reading and following me. Today, I have nail apps. These are Sally Hansen real nail polish strips. They come in over two dozen designs and colors. I purchased mine from Wal-Mart for $8 and change. If you buy them any place else you will pay $9.99 and up. They are $12.99 at CVS, ah yeah right. Do the right thing people. On with the review!
Love Letter is just what its called. Words compose a letter of sorts, who knows what it says, but it looks cool. There are 16 nail polish strips. Eight in two sealed packets.  In order to get a bang for my buck I only used one packet. I cut each of the eight strips in half and did two accent nails. I have wide nail beds and short nails, for work. I found application simple and it took less then an hour. I did use top coat to seal, Seche Vite. The TC added shine in addition to the sealing.
 Day Three. I crackled my accent nails to spice things up. I got tired of looking at them but could not bring myself to remove them. They still looked sooo good.
Day four. I started peeling them off but to my surprise they didn't move. You need nail polish remover because these are real nail polish. I recommend the foil method. I believe they would last 10 days and I am buying more ;-) Thanks. Enjoy
