Morning! Today I have some cute nail wraps from Nail Rock to show you! These are a new to me brand that I was excited to try because I love stuff like this. I am not good at most nail art so this is as close as I get to it! The design I'm showing you today is called Furry Cheetah, a fun cheetah print wrap that looks like it has a little texture to it!
These are applied much the same as all the other kinds of wraps/decals/polish strips on the market. If you want to read full instructions they have them on the Nail Rock website here! Application wise these were not the easiest to work with, at least not on my first try. They were not as pliable as the other products like this that I've tried. I had some issues getting these smooth, I smoothed and smoothed and repositioned them and it just didn't seem to help much. Since these wraps are more like stickers they are a bit thicker than something like Sally Hansen which makes it a little easier to reposition it if you need to. The bad thing about the thickness of these wraps is that the edges don't look good after you file the excess off. It wasn't easy to actually file it off then when I finally got it off the edges looked all raggedy. I also had issues with the wraps not wanting to adhere very well to the nail on the edges, especially after filing off the excess. You can see it a little bit in the photos but it wasn't as noticeable in real life.
Just wanted to mention that I do not have a top coat on over these...I am holding a bottle of CND Super Shiney but I don't actually have it on :)
Wear wise I didn't have a great experience, it says on the packaging they can last for up to 10 days, I fully intended to wear test these but they were trashed after about 5 hours. I took a shower and that was the end of my furry cheetah nails :( It might be better if you used a top coat but since the directions didn't say to I didn't.
That said, I do love the results even if I only got to rock it for 5 hours. If you want something that will last you a few days I'd go with Sally Hansen Salon Effects or Incoco but it you want something fun for a night out or a special event I'd go with Nail Rock. I also have these in their Metallic Gold design so I'm hoping I have better luck with those!
Nail Rock wraps are available at a few retailers including Nordstroms, for $8 each. I've also seen them at CVS (in store!) and they were around the same price! You can also purchase them on NailRock.com but I think it works out to be cheaper from Nordstroms or CVS for those of us in the US!
