Hey everyone 🙂 today I have some awesome nail stickers to show you which I was kindly sent to review from Nailtopia. I’ve seen Nailtopia a few times in Sally’s and occasionally bought some nail art supplies but I never realised you could buy them straight from their website. I adore nail stickers and today I have some really pretty ones to show you. Sometimes I buy them and feel like I can’t ever use them because they are too pretty so having to review them is a good way to get me to branch out! I enjoy these because they are so easy to use, and like the packets claims, it is ‘instant nail art’. These are called ‘Real Photo Art Nail Stickers’, meaning that the highly detailed designs are more realistic.
I was a little overzealous with how many stickers I applied but I honestly wanted to try them all, lol! I have a couple more packs to review so next time I think I’ll try to incorporate them into a proper nail art design. I also underestimated the dry-time of the base colour (Illamasqua Nudge… omg I love that colour so much…) and so the apparent unevenness of the stickers is actually where I’ve tried to smooth them down and they’ve sort of become imprinted into the polish rather than sitting on top because the polish wasn’t quite dry. See, even I make amateur mistakes!
My camera seems to have picked up the lighting difference on the clear bits of the stickers around the designs but this is basically invisible in person, especially with topcoat.
Application is fairly easy, they recommend using tweezers but in the absence of tweezers (I can never find mine = all too hairy eyebrows!) I found bending the little piece of card the stickers are attached to in such a way that the stickers gently detach is just as effective. Of course putting the sticker down on the nail is a bit more clumsy when you’re using your fingers but it’s not a disaster. So ideally, use tweezers. The stickers themselves are very adhesive so sticking isn’t a problem. They are also very flexible which makes application to any part of your nail all the easier (no corners coming unstuck). Finally the stickers are very thin so they aren’t obvious when sitting on your nail so can be easily incorporated into some hand-painted nail art. They lie flat on the nail and once you add a topcoat the nail is totally smooth. Apparently the stickers are made of rubber which I think enhances the flexibility of them 🙂
The pack gives you 26 butterflies in pink, blue, yellow, green and white in assorted sizes and shapes, and 7 pink flowers in assorted sizes. I think this is a good number for many uses because if you are modest with your stickers (unlike me) and use about 5-7 a time that’s at least 4 manicures. I love the combination of butterflies and flowers too.
I think this is perfect for young girls and mature ladies alike, I know when I was a lot younger I’d have loved these pretty nail stickers, I remember only ever had some freebie ones which I wore religiously on my nails for days! The Nailtopia Butterflies and Flowers Nail Art Stickers retail at £2.50 and are available from their website. They have so many stickers designs on the website I feel like I could spend a fortune there; I have a special penchant for any sea creatures and there are plenty of sea-themed stickers for my delectation! I feel like pretty much anything you want is on there: cats, flowers, fish, ladybirds… all sorts! I also personally think £2.50 is very reasonable for good quality stickers with a potential 4 different manicures 🙂
What do you think? Are you into nail stickers for easy nail art? Everyone who saw my nails with these on loved them 🙂
