THINGS have a way with me. No, really. They do. My heart is so fickle when it comes to something brilliantly convenient and cute; it's always love at first wear. Allow me to share with you Dandies my newest obsession: NAIL WRAPS.
If you haven't already tried them -- you should. If you've no idea what on earth they are --omgZ let me tell ya!
Essentially, nail wraps are nail-shaped stickers that are 'ready-to-apply' to the nails in place of nail polishes. I know your first thought is only the horror you could imagine with trying to smoothly apply a sticker to your nail...flattening out the bubbles and wrinkles...yadda, yadda...
I felt the same way, trust me. I avoided nail wraps as long as I could because, as someone who already has trouble trying to paint a smooth coat of polish to my nails, nail wraps just SEEMED like they would be annoying and srsly too intricate a process for these hands of mine that lack any sign of dexterity. I was pretty steadfast in my belief that nail wraps were the sloppiest idea ever created in the world of the invention of pretty things. I'd even tested out a few different (hideous) designs that I picked up from my local Dollarama. All efforts were foiled.
Now, I'll confess that my growing dislike for nailwraps was mostly due to the fact that I had NO idea how to put them on. I was going at it blind. Slapping them on, and then attacking my fingernail with scissors. Bad. Just. Bad.
A few months ago I watched the NCLA x Little Black Bag nail wraps tutorial, and my face was all like 'OHHHHHHHH!...oh. That makes way more sense'.
Anyway, recently my mother brought be a slew of cheap nail wraps from Daiso in Korea. I was ready to give this whole nailwraps thing another go. And OMG people. OH-MY-GAWWWWD.
As soon as the first nail wrap was flawlessly applied, it was like the angels were singing, and I swear there was a bit of a white light shining down on me in my puny bachelor apartment. Oh. My. LAWDY. Love.
Anyway, the long and short of it is (or just the long...because clearly I just always have too much to say) GO TRY NAILWRAPS!! They are way simpler to apply than nail polish, and there is no dry time! Srsly. I am fully converted. Throw all my nail polish into the dump for all I care. Nail wraps all the way!
I'm thinking about filming my own simple nail wrap tutorial. Would you Dandies be interested?
Have a happy weekend!
