31 Day Challenge: Gold

Thursday, 3 January 2013

Really pleased with todays mani :) I'm not usually a huge fan of gold on me but I rather liked the results of todays efforts! It was the first time using this brand of nail wraps - Nail Rock. Haven't been impressed with other brands but these went on real easy, even with the distinct curve of my nail beds! Will definitely be trying out some of their other designs now!!! I first buffed the nails and wiped with an acetone wipe (both in the pack) to prepare the nail, placed the stickers on and rubbed really firmly with both my thumb and a hoof stick (also in the pack); finally tucked over the ends and filed off the excess. Took 5 mins max! I then painted the two remaining nails in a shimmering gold.

For this look I used:

  • Nail Rock - Designer Nail Wraps Kit
  • Models Own - Gold Rush

  2. The nail rock stickers are pretty cool. I've tried their metallic gold one (the plain metallic gold) and it looked just like awesome minx nails. I could see my own reflection!! I have a silver set as well :)

  6. Your a speedy rabbit with those things, aren't you! I tried the Sally Hansen ones one time and they took me forever to apply and only lasted 3 day! I really like that you did three nails with the wraps and the other two with polish.

    1. Well I must say that's 5 mins per nail but they were really easy to use! Had similar experiences as you with other brands but these worked much better. They were done in after a bust water filled day though! Didn't cap them with clear polish, I heard this helps?! :)
