So I cleaned my nails really well.. took off my existing nail polish, cleaned my cuticles, manicured my fingers, washed with soap and dryed them, and then buffed my nails. Some say buffing your nails before applying the stickers helps rough up the nail bed and helps with sticker adhesion. I took out the stickers and there is this silver tab you pull to remove the sticky part and you can move on your fingernails until you get the right position. So the first nail I did came out really nice. The next one wasn't so good I wanted to just press the bottom more to get better adhesion when a piece came off. Next nail, I come to remove the nail sticker and it splits in half. No worries, I said...that was my bad, I wasn't careful! I look back at my already done nails and notice that the nails I spent ten minutes pressing down on to get a good stick are popping up at the sides again. And I presevered to the rest of my nails, only to notice the same thing happening to all fingers. Now on the packaging it says to simply bend the excess under your nail and it'll come off that easy! Lie! It doesn't come off that easy...it tears taking along more sticker with it. And I really wanted to love these because I thought How easy would this make my life!!
So here are my pictures : I present Exhibit A (takes a very serious look at the jury!)
