Blotched Decals

May 11, 2013

I gleefully stayed in tonight. I think CC wanted me to join him out, but I had a few things to do and I frankly just wanted to stay home. He went out with K downtown. I hope they are having a lovely time. It’s too hot and I could easily move to the ocean right now if the opportunity presented itself.

While cleaning up the constant mess that “decorates” my desk, I found some Design FX nail decals. I guess they changed their packaging and I got this pack for free because CosmoProf got all the new packaging in. Rather then throwing out the old packages, they made them samples. I hadn’t tried this brand before, but I have tried decals in the past. I do really like the decals that OPI made, I don’t even know if they are still out or if they still make them. Those are easy to apply, remove well with polish remover and look really fantastic. I have been wanting to try the China Glaze ones, but I think they are over priced, even with my professional discount. I want to have nice nails for tomorrow, so I figured I’d give these a whirl. Here’s a picture of the packaging:

Here’s what they look like before you apply them:

Simple enough right? Well, it was hard to file the excess off the free-edge of my nail. They also wrinkled and weren’t smooth. They were hard to trim anyway and the excess made them “bubbly” on the side.

They are ok, but not great. I took them off. Polish remover didn’t dissolve them and thankfully peeling them off didn’t screw up my nails. I guess I will be painting them in a bit.
