OMG Nail Strips Review and Tutorial

You know when you finish painting your nails with a detailed design only to scrape your poor finger nail and ruin your hard work? Well, that's what nail wraps are for! Not only for days when you're in a rush but also for the times you want an incredibly unique print on your nails without having to head out to a salon.

I admit that I have never used nail wraps before and this is the first time I've ever attempted it. I must say, I was impressed with how easy it was and how the results are fantastic! These are supposed to last up to 14 days too! After all, I'm a fashion designer and I do a lot of work with my hands. Here's a quick tutorial for OMG Nail Wraps:

The look we're going for; a detailed and sophisticated skeletal look without any fuss

What you'll need:
-Crossbones OMG Nail Wraps
-A Bowl of Warm Water
-Hand Towel
-Cuticle Pusher
-Cuticle Cutter
-Hand or Body Lotion
-Cotton Swab
-Nail File
-Top Coat

Soak your hands in warm water for 5 minutes. Dry hands.

Gently push back cuticles

Carefully remove any excess skin around the nail bed with cuticle cutter

Moisturize your hands with lotion and wait 1 minute

Using cotton swab, remove any leftover lotion from the nail bed, paying special attention to the sidewall, cuticle area and tip of the fingernail

Select the appropriate sized nail strip for each nail to ensure the nail will be covered from sidewall to sidewall

Cut out nail wrap. At this stage, trim shape of sticker to fit your nail if necessary

Peel off the clear coating

Carefully remove the nail polish strip from the sticker backing. Start by placing the round end of the nail strip along the base of the cuticle. Smooth the strips along the base of the cuticle and towards the tip of the nail.

Trim off and file away any excess nail strip by holding your nail file parallel to the surface you are working on

Apply a finishing topcoat and wait 5 minutes for it to dry completely. Repeat steps above for rest of your nails.

There you have it, easy as that! Now my spooky nails look amazing with my mini Crystal Head Vodka and Nightmare Before Christmas bat knuckle ring
