Many of you have made numerous comments about my leopard print nails from this post. Bella from the Citizen Rosebud made a fabulous suggestion, and I decided to go with it! So, (drum roll, please): here is my DIY Tutorial on how to apply these awesome nail polish strips to make your nails look like so much fun.
Note: V from Grit and Glamour asked some very valuable questions that I left off of the video (my mistake!) Here are the answers:
1. Do you put a clear coat of polish over the top once you’re done? No, you don’t! Once you are all done with them, that’s it!
2. Do they harm your nail
bed at all when you remove them? No they don’t. They are exactly like nail polish, so if you peel it off, it is like peeling off nail polish that was painted on. It actually states on the box that the strips are real nail polish in strip form. I have peeled these off (out of boredom), and they did not remove any layers of my nails (as shellac would).
3. Do they come off with acetone remover? Yes. They come off with any type of nail polish remover. I have used the non-acetone polish remover, and it does remove them. You do have to work at it for a while, but they will come off! (It’s like removing nail polish that you have 3+ coats on, it takes a little bit. It removes in layers, so it looks kinda funky while you are removing them!).
I hope you all enjoyed my tutorial video! Sorry if the lighting was a bit off, my webcam on my laptop can be a bit finicky at times. Let me know if you have any questions, I am always happy to help!!
