Supplies used...

Modicure nail strips

Here are my Valentines Day nails! A few weeks ago Modicure had a sale on Fab so I scooped up these heart stickers as well as a black and white striped design. I'm always excited to try new nail stickers. But sadly, I'm not quite 100% impressed with the quality. The stickers reminded me of the texture of fruit roll ups, they just kind of stretched when handled. The packs come with twelve stickers which, obviously, should be enough for your fingers but the sizes were all a little off and right off the bat I ruined two of them. So to do all of my fingers I would have had to make the rest of them perfect, which would have been nearly impossible. Luckily I had no plans of doing all my fingers to begin with.

I've had the stickers on about a week and they're starting to chip a little. But it's no worse than the regular polish on my other fingers so I suppose they do stay on pretty nice. They lasted through doing dishes, a bubble bath, some baking and lots of typing.

Nail sticker issues aside, I LOVE these. They're so much fun!
Hope you have a lovely Sunday.

  17. You inspire me so much to do fun and creative things with my nails! I just started posting some of them on my blog since I finally sort of got the hang of it and like how they turn out. I love the pink and red together!

  18. Ooooo...pretty! I love pink and red together. I used to do my nails every day and you inspire me to try and start doing that again (with a new baby, I may just have to do my toes for now)....I need to find pics of my V-Day mani from last year to reminisce....

  19. So cute. Any tips on taking photos of your nails. Is there special lighting etc. I always try to get a good shot in, but I never seem to get them as nice as yours.
