Good Morning guys! Today I have for you guys one of the Essence Studio Nail designs. These just recently started showing up at Ulta's around here.
Before I get to talking about them I have to rant for a moment about the horrendous Ulta cashier that checked me out when I bought these. I was at the register buying these (and all the other Studio Nails from Essence) along with a Nail Fraud package that was on clearance. The girl comments on the Essence stuff and I say how I'm excited to find them, they are so cheap blah blah blah. Then the girl goes into a big old speech about nail decals are HORRIBLE for your nails and how it destroys your natural nail when you remove them. My, I'm standing there with a horrified look on my face going o.O. Just to clear up any confusion about decals like these ones from Essence, Nail Fraud, Sally Hansen etc... they do not damage your nails when you take them off, unless perhaps you are not taking them off correctly. I kind of wanted to smack that stupid girl at Ulta for spreading lies like that. If you're going to go on a rampage about how awful something is at least do some research and see if there is any truth to what you are telling people./rant
So back to what's today's post is actually about lol! These Essence Studio Nails just landed at Ulta, they retail for $2.50 each and there are 6 designs to choose from. The design I have for you today is called Drama Queen. It's colorful, I like it! I did have a few issues with these. I had trouble getting them to smooth out, no matter how much I tried I could not get rid of some of the wrinkles and bubbles :( You can see my issues in the pictures. Despite that I really do like these, especially for the price! I should mention though that if you have large (wide) nail beds these might not work for you. There were 2 options for the thumb and both were too small for my nail bed (and I have small nail beds!)
Also, in case you haven't seen this on another blog yet...Zoya has a brand new collection out for pre-order today! The Touch Collection, consists of 3 nude shades with a slight shimmer! I can't wait to get my hands on these!
