Nail Stickrs is a company based in the USA but they DO ship to the UK. Shipping is cheap too, $2.50 which works out at around £1.49
I was sent a pretty big pack of stencils and stickers to play around with so expect quite a few designs with these babies!
Okay so today I decided to try the straight lines and the arrow type ones first. I am in love with all things geometric at the mo!
The polish needs to be proper dry before using these so I recommend waiting a while after base colour application. I didn't use a fast dry topcoat so waited about an hour. I have tried to use a topcoat to speed up this process before but I actually don't think it works too well. It makes you think its dry when its not, sneaky!
First I picked up a bunch of the stencils and the placed them on my nails. This way I can ensure they are straight and equally spaced.
Then I removed every other sticker. I found using tweezers made this part easier.
When I was happy with the positioning I used the end of the tweezers to push the stencils down into the sides of the nail to make sure there are no gaps.
And there you have it. The smallest tutorial of all time! The base is Manglaze Mayonnaise. A matte shimmery white. Takes 3 coats for opacity.
I then used a sponge and OPI Nein Nein Nein Okay Fine and Mentality's Scoundrel to create the gradient.
The triangle shape was also made using Nail Stickrs but this time I used the straight lines.
I did make some mistakes with these though. Some of the polish leaked under the stencil. I found using a little brush with some nail polish remover on cleaned it up a bit. I don't think they are bad at all for a first attempt!
Matted it all, again. I mean I just love matte!
What do you think of these new Nail Stickrs? I love them and whether your new or a dab hand a nail art these have a use for everyone.
