I’ve noticed these trendy little nail polish strips all over the place! I was skeptical but then I saw a couple of friends whose nails are gorgeous and colorful. They told me they were Color Street which are nail polish strips.
That caught me off guard, I love getting my nails done but I give them a break every few months. I feel better about myself when my nails are done, like I have my life together.
A friend of mine named Brooke decided to have a Facebook Color Street party, while browsing I couldn’t believe how affordable and cute they were!
I found solids, glitters, nail art, and even pedicure nail strips. I settled upon Glitterally Cannot as they are in the petite section, my hands are kind of small.
Look how pretty they are! The pictures do not do the color justice, I absolutely love the color. The glitter is throughout the entire nail strip and what seals the deal is the strips aren’t rough or bumpy like you’d feel with glitter nail polish.
The instructions are really simple too and they only take about 10-15 minutes from start to finish.
To get started use the nail prep wipe to clear your nails of any oils then get started! You’ll then start by picking the right size for the finger you’re working on.
Once you’ve got your strip measured up take off the protective layer, next you’ll want to tear the tab off your strip, apply the nail strip to your nail (you can stretch it a little to fit longer nails), I used the stick shown to help get the bubbles out if I saw any and to really get it into the creases of my nails. Finally you’ll want to get off the excess and you do that by using the fingernail file and swiping down until you can pull off the excess strip. I find swiping down helps to preserve the strip on the tips of the nail too. That’s just my personal opinion though.
Don’t place the nail strip over your cuticle or on skin.
I thought I did pretty good for my first time, applying the strips aren’t a pain in the ass either. Although in the picture it looks like my real nail is exposed but I think that’s just the lighting because they’re completely covered.
See how pretty they turned out? I can’t wait to see how long they last and for $13 you can’t really beat it!
You can layer colors, glitters, and nail arts too. If you have an awareness that is near to your heart there is also a section for those too.
I believe this method will be the one I use for a few months until I get my nails professionally done.
I’m a part time virtual assistant and I clean newly built construction houses part time too. So I touch papers everyday and I wipe off counters and fridges which makes my hands pretty dry which usually leads to my nails chipping or cracking.
listening to the great things I hear I’ll be enjoying the Color Street nails for at least 2 weeks!
