It seems that pretty much everyone is turning out nail strips these days and I'm more than happy to try out each and every pair I come across. When perusing the lacquer wall at my local beauty supply shop, I spotted a new addition--a display filled with Nail Bliss strips. I only let myself buy one set so I chose this fun pink and purple gradiation design and applied it on top of Essie's Cocktail Bling.
So what did I think? Let me break it down for you!
Pretty decent! I found something that worked for each of my nails. The only trouble is you have to choose a size that is smaller than your nail so you can seal it in. As you can see by my thumbnail, that makes for a bit of a gap. B
Super easy! It was great to just pull them off the plastic sheet and place. They are thick so you don't have to worry about ruining them before you even put them on. If you misplace you can gently lift off to adjust. A
As I mentioned earlier, the gap between the edge of the applique and my nail is mildly distressing, but what can you do? Filing of at the end of my nail was more difficult than any other strip I've tried, but that was simply because of the thickness. Not a deal breaker. B+
Here's the thing, I generally don't leave a manicure on my nails for more than two or three days, so I don't ask for much. By the end of my mani attention span (read: three days) the edges were starting to lift. While this isn't a problem for me, I would not recommend these for people hoping to get a week or two out of these strips. They would be super great for a special occasion though! A-
So would I try this brand again? Absolutely! In fact, these are the two I'm thinking of for next time!
