I think nail polish strips are a fun way to be creative and have your nails done without the need to wait for the polish to dry, try have a steady hand to draw something on them, or go to a salon and spend too much money. And it wears off using a nail polish remover.
Also, it says it holds up to 10 days, For me, it holds up wayyy longer then a regular nail polish! As I'm typing this, it's been like 5 days and it looks as it was the day I've applied it!
I got No 480 - I Love Lacey
The little box contains 16 strips, A mini file, a wooden cuticle stick, and directions
You want to start with clean and nail-polish-free hands. Measure and choose the right sizes for your nails (*if you have short nails, you can cut the strips in two and use then 2 times)
Push cuticles back with wooden stick (I used the other side of the stick, but accidentally took a picture of the wrong side ha ha)
Shape free edge of nail with the hot pink side of the file
Smooth out the surface of the nail with the white side of the file
Peel off the clear plastic cover, then the strip itself from the white backing paper
Break the silver tab of the strip, choose the side of it that suits your cuticle best, place it on the nail, against cuticle, starting from the middle, lightly stretching the strip outward
Press strip to nail, then run flat side of the cuticle stick along the edges of the nail to firmly bond strip to nail
Smooth access over the edge of the nail, forming a crease, then gently file off the rest using light pink side of the file
Annnd.. there you go :)
And it doesn't even look like stripes! :)
