Golden Overboard

So this post is some combination of wrong and weird. I was sent some golden mirror nail wraps to review from Lady Queen Beauty…and this is what happened!

My initial plan was to use the nail wraps on all but my accent nails (which were to be painted black and get some gold decorations). However, that didn’t quite work. I applied the wraps to three of my nails, and they kept bunching up! I didn’t even add base coat, in hopes that they would stick better. I have a photo below of what they looked like, and they ARE wonderfully mirror-y, but I couldn’t wear them. The material was just too stiff to bend around my nails!

I pulled them off every nail but my pinky (which looked passable), and went to town cutting them to pieces and putting them over a black base (Sinful Colors – Black on Black).

I really have no idea what I was thinking here. Black! Gold! Shiny things! My pinky does look awesome, but it is already peeling up as I type this (I’ve been wearing it for maybe 3 hours). Who knows if it will last through a shower! Even two coats of topcoat weren’t enough to adhere the cuticle edge to my nail.

I ended up painting black lines and dots on some of the gold pieces on my nails, and I actually liked it better without the additional designs. Oops!

If you have flatter nails and you want to pick up these shiny wraps (or just want to use them for weird nail art like I did) my code is BPLC15, and you can find these for $4.74 at Lady Queen Beauty! Hope you enjoyed🙂
