Product review: the nail patch

I have been meaning to try out the sephora nail patches for some time now, so today I sat and peeled off each and every stick-on polish patch and tried my best to make it work.

It took me 15 mins. Et voila! Granted I'm not very good at precise hand work lol I think its good for when u don't have time for a quick swing at the nearest nail station (or, if ur in dubai, the place is fully booked). Another advantage is that it needs zero time to dry, and to me, that kinda eliminates alotta hazards (lambskin related).


But its a do it urself kit kinda thing, and the finishing isn't perfect. Maybe it works better with a solid shade.

i never got it right, but then again i was trying to use it on my little cousins..

their nails are tiny and those patches are just too big xx

i'll stick to normal manis, love how the varnish brush slides off one's nails.

Delly: yeah I guess they would look more professional if it was just one shade x

Baroque: they ARE too big! I tried cutting em from the sides.. Kinda messed em up lol but they're good for a quick fix, what with traffic and appointments and everything u need as much convenience as u can get over here xx
