I recently joined the world of twitter (@lyndsylee) and came across this amazing post by the always stylish Amber of Amber's Notebook. Her post was perfectly timed with my birthday party celebration (posting about soon) and I thought who needs a manicure when the look I want can be achieved at home and look so great?
On Saturday I frantically hit up various drug stores (thank you Brandon for your patience) to find Frock Star and wouldn't you just know, third time was a charm. I threw down my $11 dollars and walked out with a smile on my face.
Once I was home, I ripped open the package and got started. *Warning* it did take me close to an hour to complete this project, and I followed Amber's instructions on my IPad (reused some applications twice) and turned out with 10 sparkling nails.
Yes I realize, not the most flattering picture, but the blackberry captured the sparkly goodness pretty well I thought. I applied the
polish stickers (that promises to hold up 10 days) on February 5. I also went the extra mile and applied a clear top coat (thanks for the rec Amber!)
Drinking some Veuve with my new nails on February 5th. Picture does not do them justice at all!
And here's my nails today, February 15th, 10 days later still looking fantastic and not chipped one bit.
I am in LOVE with this product. It is one I will most definitely be purchasing again. I would say that if you are going to purchase this product I would advise to go for the fun designs over the solid colors. I have received numerous compliments on the polish (oddly enough - mostly from guys) and am just so pleased with the results.
I believe I will attempt to take the polish off this weekend with just plain nail polish and advise how well that works for me.
And just to leave you with a pretty picture of the results (instead of my sausage like fingers) please see Amber's results below. Oh so pretty!
Ugh..I hate to admit this since I REALLY love this product, but taking this puppies off was torture. It took my an hour to get them off all the way and was left with pruned up fingers and sore nails from soaking in nail polish remover so long. While I think I will use the product again and still stand behind the quality, I would advise seeing a professional for removal if you are going to use them.
