First swatch. Fail swatch.

Aloha! :)

I was recently contacted by Born Pretty Store to review a couple of their products of my choice. If you scroll down, you'll see I picked some Ferrari nail stickers. The question you should be asking yourself right now is: "why?" ("wtf" and funny faces are also accepted as good remarks). I have no idea! I thought it might be fun, I guess. And it has been so, but in a different way than I imagined...

First off: this is what you get if you order this item in number 103 (they're on sale right now, in case you're still on to take this amazing trip to nonsense-land after this post). Two ranges of 8 different sized stickers, with different patterns. The main question of this post, you'll have noticed by now, is: WHY? And again, I have no idea!
As the offered sizes didn't match my nails and I was way too lazy to cut the stickers in the right shape I decided to do a simple accent nail with it. Thumbs up ;)
Now my comments are the following: (i) this is a VIP sticker; you nail has to be freakin' huge for the sticker to fit completely. (ii) it has not been designed for curved nails; you can easily see how the sticker could not lay even and smooth. Hence the fail. Keep watchin'.
This is the final result of carefully applying the sticker on my thumb, after pulling (and thus slightly deforming) the sticker. Yuck.
Sorry, you can't un-see now! 
I decided to give it a second chance, on my middle finger this time. Slightly better, but still shameful. I mean, honest, would you walk out the door with this on?
Needless to say this product was sent to me for my honest review; I think I've been the original M. you all know, no sugar added. I wouldn't repurchase this. BUT if your nails are flat you will probably be luckier than me with them.

Take care y'all!

  1. The only way to do this sort of thing on curved nails is by using a water decal or real nail polish strips (like salon effects) - the stickers will fail miserably every time regardless of where you get them. They don't stretch and mould to fit the shape of the nail bed.

  2. HAHAHA Vaya odisea eh? Bueno, aunque estos chinos tienen cosas a buen precio pues no dejan de ser cosas baratas, está claro... a nosotras el polvo de terciopelo nos funcionó super bien... seguro que al mismo nivel que cualquiera de esos que venden tan caros. Pero estas stickers es que no hay por dónde cogerlas...

  3. Haha the pictures are pretty funny. :P Yes, they are definitely not designed for curved nail beds. Such a shame, cause the pattern is cute. :-)

  4. Bummer!! Good to know though, I don't think my nails are flat, so would fail as well!

  5. I like the Ferrari pattern you chose! Too bad they didn't work out for you.

  6. LOL that really looks terrible, but I can imagine it would have been fun in the right size!

  7. But... but but but WHY???
    Sorry, I found this post to be extremely funny and a most wonderful mood raiser! Just love it!
    And I totally agree with your opinion although I do have one question: do you know anyone who's nails are not curved?

  8. Companies just always neglect curved nails... sigh...

  9. Lol! Too funny! Why......out of all the things you could have chosen, would you choose that? Lol that's the first thing i thought when i saw the first picture! I'm in between flat and curved nails so im not sure how these would work for me.

  10. I love this review! Thanks for being honest! I had the same bad results with Jamberry.

  11. great post!

  12. oh i'm sorry to see the result!!! :D did you try doing it on your whole nail? i work with nail stickers and they hug nails well

  13. LOL!!! Same thing happened to me with my Halloween stickers. I was so beyond frustrated!

  14. Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Chrome.
    I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know.
    The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon.
    Many thanks
