Maybelline asked me to try out their new limited edition Color Show Nail Stickers and I have to admit, I wasn’t too excited about trying out another press on nail applique… until they arrived! I unwrapped the package and my first thought was, this manicure will be PERFECT for New Year’s Eve nails!
New Year’s Eve nails should be fun and sexy, and I think black lace over nude nails with gold and silver crystals will have you ringing in the new year in style! In fact, the name of the fashion prints I tried out are appropriately named Midnight Lace! Maybelline has introduced 8 runway ready prints, just in time for the holidays.
There’s two things I look for in nail stickers, beyond style – I like the sticker to be firm enough that it’s not flopping around as I try to line it up on my nail, but still pliable enough that it doesn’t wrinkle as I smooth it on. This was probably the easiest nail sticker I’ve ever applied, including stickers and nail polish strips. The only complaint I have is that the nail file they sent really roughs up the tips of the stickers. This is easily fixable by using your own nail file.
So what are you wearing on your fingertips to ring in 2013? Do you have your New Year’s Eve nails planned out already?
