Boy, it's already March 11th! Zebra sticker nails!

Yeah, I'm a little shocked of this. It's March! It was just January!

Anyways, I did some shopping the other day. I had heard of these before but couldn't get my hands on them earlier. 

Sticker nails. Isn't that cool? :D

These are by Wild & Mild. I got two different kinds. Silver-black zebra print. And pink/orangeish leopard print. Haven't tried the latter ones out yet. I put on the cooler ones, the silver-black zebras.


The stickers come in a paper slip like this. The more square looking ones I had already used. Thought that I can reuse them later. They are all silver and black. Not black and gold or anything even thought it might look like that on the left in the picture. 

You can click on all the pictures and see them in a greater size.



 The instructions say: Remove previous nailpolish, and push cuticles back, apply a base coat, choose a sticker of the right size, apply the sticker with the adhesive side on the nail, file your nails with the nail file that came with and lastly apply a top coat. BIG MISTAKE!!! Whatever you do, DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT add a top coat. Your nails will end up looking like this:


The crackle effect is achieved when you do not want it.

I left these on and put the stickers on my right hand's nails and they look way better. 

All the stickers weren't that good in size compared to my nails, so there are gaps here and there. Or the sticker looks like it's gone beyond my nail onto my finger.

So now I have crappy looking nails on my left hand, and good ones on my right. Soon I'm gonna go take  a shower and see how these babies handle the heat, I'll report back after that. 



In the meantime, how are you all doing? :D



Edit. March 11, 2011 6.57 PM. Nails are still on. Hot water, shampoo, hair conditioner, body wash, body lotion did not change the appearance of the nails. They are still in place, the corners look good. Nothing happened even though I put them through the ringer. Okay, I still could test them when I wash dishes, but I don't know if I'm doing that today or asking someone else nicely to do them. ;)

  2. Marie, they were really easy to use! :D I didn't expect it. I totally thought I'd mess up the first couple nails at least, but I didn't.

  3. I have been looking at these and wasn't sure how easy they were to use or held up. Thanks for the info. Now I may have to give them a try...

  4. Krista, I've had them on for 24 hours now and I'm quite satisfied. The sticker has worn off a little from the tips of may nails, but not more than regular nail polish does, I feel. On my nails at least regular nail polish has worn off a little in 24 hours.

    I found they were very easy to put in place. I don't know what they'll look like when I remove them. They were 4 euros about so to have awesome looking nails for a night out is good. They stay on fine for at least 24 hours...

  5. I would never have expected them to actually stay on!
