Fun & Easy Nail Art

Good Morning everyone! 

I just got back from Sweden yesterday and it was a beautifully wonderful trip.  I got to spend some time with my good friend who lives there.  She is American, speaks English, her husband plays basketball, and travels with her hubby!  If you are a fellow expat, you completely understand how much those things mean.  If you aren't, let's just say, I don't have too many English speaking friends here in St. Etienne.  

Now before I left, of course I had to get all girlied up.  Aside from my sweet little Tae, who always notices when 'mommy looks pretty,' most people 'round these parts don't really notice.  I particularly liked these pretty little nail decals because I rarely do my nails.  I can't do them nicely, they take too long to dry, and inevitably I always mess them up!  I also have big, ugly man-hands, but that's another story.  Enter in these beauties:

They are so easy to use.  I must admit, I was a little skeptical at first, but I thought I would give it a try.  Glad I did!
 You just peel the sticker off, which is a type of nail polish sticker or something, and press it to your nail.  If it isn't perfect you can lift it up and apply again.  It won't affect the stickiness of the decal.

Once you have it one the way you want it, you can tear off the access and voila!  You just painted your nails! With pretty bows at that!

 No smudges, no mess ups, no redos, and no messy left hand!  Does it help the man-hand problem?? #notsomuch

What do you think, would you rock these?  They have quite a few options, french tip, polka dots, flowers.  As a matter of fact, if you keep and eye on our Facebook page today, you could win a pair!! (Giveaway closed)

Linking up to all the parties in my link page and some other great ones here.

Happy Friday!

That's a cute pattern. I've been meaning to try something like these but just haven't gotten around to it.

I have been wondering about these! How long did they stay on? And can you wash your hands and do everything just like normal??

Saw those once and was really interested - I can't do my nails well either and since I work with tools & fire, what's the point? Do you really just "tear" off the excess? How difficult is it to get a clean edge? On my way to your fb page now ;-)

I got some of those recently! I still need to try em out. :)

Allison said...

These are darling! I am so not coordinated enough to do that.

Oh my gosh, this is quite possibly the greatest invention ever! I never have the patience to let my nails dry. And, for the record, I don't think you have man hands at all!
