Zebra Nail Wraps

I have to admit. I killed my nails this week. In a bad way. I was at the gym 5 days this week and I broke numerous nails getting back into some heavy lifting. Needless to say, my nails are really short right now because I totally destroyed them and bit them off.


So, as I was passing through Walgreens, I couldn't help but pick up these little guys, Broadway Stick-On Wraps:




I've seen lots of people trying foils and nail wraps and I hadn't had a chance to try them out yet. Since my nails were so short and I wasn't motivated to paint them, I said, "Why not?" 


When I brought them home, my Hunk said, "What? This is cheating!" It was really amusing. I explained it wasn't cheating, just easier! And trust me, it's not cheating when these are a pain in the butt to put on. Yep, I said it. These are cheap-o and lame. They're terrible with the application and they're coming up already. 


I began by applying a coat of Looks Wet clear polish topcoat first to help keep these on (it didn't help). I then applied the wraps one at a time and filed off the tips. I finished with 2 coats of Seche Vite topcoat to try to harden them up and keep them on. And that was it! Here are the pink zebra nail wraps:




These were super easy to put on, but they creased terribly. And they're all coming up by the cuticle. I don't recommend using them. But they sure are very cute!
