Hi All, the nail art accessory that I have for your help today is extremely simple to use and affordable also. They are ‘Nail Art Stickers‘ . To be frank, I always route to them when I am out of ideas and out of time. I hate carrying bare nails so I need to have something or the other on them. And if my nails are just plain painted before I leave home, I throw in a sticker pack in my purse and simply peel them off to beautify my nails while traveling to work in my car. Don’t worry, my husband is on the driving seat. 😛
What is a Nail Art Sticker and How to use them?
One doesn’t have to be a pro to enjoy a Nail Art Sticker. They are pretty small designs on a sheet All you need to do is chose a design, peel it off the sheet and apply it on your nail. Press it firmly so that it sticks well to your nails. And finish it with a top coat. Viola!! you have a pretty design on your nails in seconds.
This is one of the nail arts where I used these stickers. Forgive me for picture quality 😦
They come in form of small cut designs ,long laces, and whole nail sticker. And I have all three (Yuppiee 🙂 ). The laces are longer and you gotto cut them as per your nail size. The whole nail stickers cover the entire nails and are usually 16-18 in a pack. You have to chose the correct size to fit your nails. You can file off the extra length of the sticker. I am yet to use mine full nail sticker :(. But the instruction says one should wash hands and nails properly to wipe off all oil and dust. Then peel off the correct sized nail sticker and lay them on the real nails (with no creme or base coat). Press it and smooth it on your nails.
Where to buy Nail Art Stickers?
If you are in Mumbai, you could head towards beauty centre to get your nail art stickers. The designs are almost repetitive but I am sure you would find few to suit your taste. I bought all three types of stickers there. As far as I remember, the cut flowers and laces were approx Rs 30 while the full nail sticker was Rs 50. Again, you would mostly find floral designs,ordinary laces and few patterns for full nails but they are good to begin with. So for first time it is good but if you want variety and choice for the second time, you may be disappointed!
Or if you could easily procure one from flipkart or other online stores. The cut designs should be priced around Rs 70-80 and full nails would be expensive (not sure about the exact price) .But you will get choices like flowers, hello kitty, angry birds etc. I have never purchased one from there because after purchasing my cheap ones from beauty center at Rs 30, Rs 70 was expensive.
The other option to get both variety and pay less is our own Born Pretty Store. They have more variety of nail art stickers than I have seen anywhere else. To be frank I can spend hours browsing their nail art collection. I am going to order some soon (although I have not even used half of my existing stock 😦 ).
