Sparkle skins for your nails!

13 Mar

While I was in Tahoe, Emily was showing me her awesome gold sparkled nails and I just loved them.  I try to paint my nails but with horse back riding, playing my guitar, and other hobbies not conducive to cute nails, I have a hard time keeping any sort of color on them.  She has shown me what can work for me though and I just love how practical they are.

Sally Hansen Salon Effects come in the above packaging and are supposedly only one manicure but I got a full stretched manicure out of only one set of stickers (box comes with two).  They are very easy to apply and they really latch onto the nail lasting through all the wear and tear.  I chose the vibrant sparkles since we were heading to another monster truck show 🙂  There are probably about 20-30 different varieties of patterns to chose from though, including solid colors.

Here’s mine and Em’s gold nails.  Emily suggests that you put a clear coat of nail polish on after you have applied the nail skins to really hold it on.  I keep forgetting to put that on but mine have still been going strong!  These are a great way to feel feminine even for the most active girls.  I can’t wait to try all of the other colors.  I got mine at CVS and I’m sure you can also find them at Target’s and other drug stores for about $10 a pack.

    are these easy to apply? I always see them around but I’m skeptical that they will stay on or be difficult applying them in the first place!

    Should I try? hmm

      You know, I thought they were going to be difficult but they come with little sculpting tools!! I am pretty clumsy when it comes to stuff like this but I was able to do it so I say try it 🙂
