Hey there Polish Peeps!! It's Thursday so the week is almost over and the weekend almost upon us!! It has been gorgeous here the past couple days but today is dark and dreary and it ALMOST looks like it's going to rain. I hope not, I love the sunshine!!
Today I have the nails I wore at my youngest's 1st Birthday party!! His party theme was the circus and even though this print isn't very circus-y, I just loved it!
I have to blame Stefanie of Fairly Charming for being the enabler here. Once I saw her Kiss Nail Dress-Comic Nail Strips post I knew I had to have them! I mean, come one, doesn't her post make you want to go out and buy them?! I found them at my local Wal Mart and knew they would be great at the party!! I had tons to do and not a lot of time to spend on my nails so these Nail Dresses looked like the perfect convenience!
I admit, I was a bit wary at first. I've never really used or been a big fan of nail strips but were pleasantly surprised with these!!
I love how they came with full and french options!!! Application was really easy and to extend the wear, I applied a matte topcoat. I really love NYC New York Color's Matte me Crazy!! Also, I have no clue why these are called Daiquiri since they look like the exact opposite to me. I just love the comic-strip, pop art feel to them!
Ignore the hair please! Didn't notice it til I edited AFTER I removed these. So much anger :-/
I also ended up getting in the same trip, a Fingr's Heart 2 Art nail gem kit and I definitely wanted to use those to give this mani a bit more pizzazz!! After applying the matte top coat, I applied a bit of nail glue on my index and applied a square silver stud I had in a little nail art grab bag and for the french tip on my pinky, I applied a black star from the Fingr's kit!
I was in LOVE with this!! I was also super surprised at the wear time on this. It actually lasted a few days! I really think it helps to top coat these nail strips. I didn't run into any tip wear or lifting.
Look! I has a thumb!!
Also, here is a pic of my darling baby boy getting into his smash cake and a smash cake before pic. I made the cake!! I'm not a professional by any means but I was pretty pleased with how it turned out!!!
Now he is a month older and WALKING EVERYWHERE!! Everywhere.
What do you think of these Kiss Nail Dresses? Have you ever tried any of the designs and did you like them?
