Holographic laser stickers

Contains products sent for review

I fall into the trap every. single. time. I see some nail wraps or some stickers that look cool and think, ‘Hey, what an easy way to spruce up a mani when I’m in a hurry’. When will I ever learn that the end result is never what you want it to be?

These holographic laser stickers from Born Pretty Store were no exception.

They were exceptionally thin and hard to work with, and I ended up tearing off corners (and sometimes halves) when I went to remove it from the backing paper. Furthermore, I was unable to apply them evenly, because they stuck to my fingers (or tweezers when I tried to use those), and once even a corner had stuck to the nail, I could not remove them for replacement without tearing them. (Do you see the flecks of gold on my thumb? Yeah, that’s pieces of sticker that I could not for the life of me get off again.) That left me with an uneven application and air bubbles that not even top coat could conceal.

Lastly, the thing with stickers is that – even if you can apply them without being able to see the transparent film – they peel INSALE quick. A couple of hours were all these lasted me, even though I was careful to seal all edges with top coat.

Also, can you see how they lose their color around the edges? Yeah, that happened when I applied the top coat.

I think, I am done with stickers. The end result is just not what you want it to be, and the application is not as easy as hoped.

    I fell into the same trap some days ago, damn it. Not as handy as one would like!

    I find stickers a hit or a miss! I much prefer full nail water decals for a quick mani

    I can understand you. The first and only time I used any kind of water decals was a completely fail! Maybe one day I will try them again.

      Water decals usually work just fine for me after a little practice 🙂
