My friend Glam Mandie gifted me a “Nails Inc. Bling It on Bow & Crystals – Romance” set last year and I haven’t opened it up..UNTIL NOW!
I don’t know why it’s taken me an entire year to open this sucker, probably because I was intimidated by 3-D sparkly gemstones sticking out from my nails. However, the whole 3-D nail trend has been red hot so I thought I’d attempt to fit in with the cool kids and give it a go.
The nail glue included within the kit is seriously NO JOKE! It sticks those gems and bows on like super glue (is it actually super glue? I wouldn’t be surprised). The day I placed them on my nails I made guacamole, emptied the dishwasher, did my laundry, cleaned my room and took a shower – NOTHING FELL OFF! (Side note, can we acknowledge how productive of a day I had?)
Which brings me to my main concern…
NOTHING FELL OFF!
Not too sure how I’m going to remove them but, we’ll get there when we get there. Ugh, the downfall of having pretty, sparkly nails. If you’ve ever painted your nails with pure glitter polish you know that deep regret, turmoil, cotton pads and remover you go through to get them off. This will probably be the same situation, only, I have to be careful to not pull my entire nail, finger or arm off or something.
Whatever, it’s all worth it, right?
How can I stay mad when every time I go to text, I get to admire pretty sparkly bows!
As a base coat, I used Essence nail polish in Peaches & Cream, which is like, $3 at your drugstore and it’s honestly one of my favourite shades of all time.
Let me know what you think! Do you love?
