Beauty: DIY Nailart

As you may have gathered by now, WhatSheWears is a big fan of nail art.  It seems that we’re not the only ones with Kelly Rowland et al rocking out endless nail art creations on TV to mix up their looks.

The influx of nail art experts has helped the trend really kick off here (The Alpha Nail and WAH Nails) being two of my favourites but now brands are offering a DIY version to get the look at home.

One that I tried this weekend was the “real nail polish strips” by Sally Hansen, Salon Effects, in “wild child”, i.e. zebra print. And the proof is in the picture (above).

For someone whose not particularly adept at painting my own nails, these were easy peesy to apply – you just stick ‘em on and file off the excess.

Taking them off when I made a mistake was not so easy, as they really do stick on hard, but with some elbow greese and lashings of nail polish remover later,  I was ready to reapply.

One packet will do a set of nails and there are 9 shades to choose from , ranging from patterns to metallics.

I’m lining up the leopard print and hounds tooth pattern for when this one wears off…

Will you be trying this trend at home?

Availability: €8.95 from selected pharmacies, department stores and grocery stores nationwide.
