OPI Nail Apps: Pink and Black Lace

Hi guys! Today I have one of the designs from OPI's new nail apps to show you called Pink and Black Lace. It's pretty much exactly what you would expect it to look like given the name, it looks like black lace on a pink background. I was excited when I heard that OPI would be putting out a whole line of nail apps, it's no secret I am a huge fan of things like this. For those like me who pretty much fail at nail art this is easy to do and it looks awesome!

Application was a breeze, I didn't have any issues with these being wrinkly or hard to smooth out! The package of nail apps comes with 16 strips (2 each of 8 different sizes). I didn't have a problem finding the right size for my nail beds but if you do have narrow nail beds you will most likely need to trim these because all but 1 strip is on the wide side. Since these are made from real nail polish they will dry out, I find that I can get all 10 nails done with 8 strips. Because these are mail with real nail polish they will dry out if you leave them out. I wish that OPI had included a way to save the other 8 strips, maybe give us a re-sealable pouch to put them in or something.

Just a note, I have not had a chance to wear test these yet. I have a couple more designs and I will be seeing how long I can get out of them so be on the lookout for those reviews in the next couple of weeks! All photos below are without top coat and in the sun. These were very easy to remove, you just need regular nail polish remover...nothing fancy!




Overall I really like these, I love the range of designs OPI has and they are easy to use. Like I mentioned, I do wish they had come with a way to save unused strips so they don't dry out but that's my only little con with these!

Pure Lacquer Nail Apps are available at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, JCPenney, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and ULTA, for the suggested retail price of $11.95.

  5. These are lovely! In your opinion, which do you think would be easier to use for a first timer: OPI or Incoco's? Also, I typically wear Perfect Formula nail gel as a base coat; can you wear it under these apps? Thanks for the great info, tips, swatches, etc!!!

  8. do you think putting the leftover strips in a zip lock sandwich bag would preserve them or do you have to use them all at once to prevent them from drying out?

  10. Unless you could somehow get it air tight I don't think it would work. It's a one time use kind of thing, unfortunately

  14. I'll have to make a trip to JCP and get some to try out... I tried the SH ones and liked them.  I think had a problem with the KISS brand though.

    Just something to try...I am addicted to the Sally Hansen strips and have found a few ways to keep them. Well, first of all anyone could use the extras on their toes. Don't waste the money for the pedicure ones from Sally Hansen...they're the same thing. Unless the pattern is not available for the finger ones. I put my extra ones in a cleaned out prescription bottle. These bottles are fairly airtight because they have to keep the pills dry and protect them from light. You can't keep them in there forever, but it lasts at least a few months or so. If they get a little dried out, I found a solution that works fairly well. I bought the OPI polish thinner, which comes in a dropper type bottle. If the strip seems stiff, put one drop on the BACK of the strip, the paper that the polish sticks to. Let it sit for about 5 minutes, most will evaporate but it will make it pliable again. Downside, it won't last as long as they do right out of the package, but you don't waste them either. I have used the bonus ones cut into pieces as "french" tip like things and other nail designs weeks after I used them originally. Better than tossing them out! :)

  18. If you have one of those food-saver things, I'll bet that would work.  I might get these just to test!  Also, I'll bet this would be cute over something with a small glitter, or I'm thinking I have Sinful's Pinky Glitter/Top Coat/Lace strips....
