Nail patch fun! Plus How to Maximize the Usage

by xin on August 29, 2011

A while ago when ParisB and Connie posted the Sally Hansen nail patch review, they reminded me of my pack of Sephora nail patch given by a friend a year ago, and I totally forgot about it!

Sephora Nail Patch 1

Hello nail stickers!

A pack contains stickers for both hands and feet.

Sephora Nail Patch 2

Most of the Sephora nail patches are in fluorescent shade.

And it does not come with a nail buffer or cuticle stick. But it’s fine also because you don’t really need it.

Enough for both hands and feet, and you will even have extras!

Sephora Nail Patch 4

According to the instructions, you need to remove the transparent film first. But I find that it is easier to work if you remove the base first.

Stick on your nails like this. It is okay that the surface looks uneven now.

Sephora Nail Patch 6

Remove the transparent film carefully. Be careful not to tear the nail polish.

You can just smooth the surface by pressing it with your thumb.

Then, just press it against your nail and peel the access off.

For the excess around the nails, you can simply scrap it off with your fingers.

It will look something like this when done.

Repeat this for all your nails and you are done! But, I have tried a way to help you maximize the use with a single pack ;)

This is what the excess looks like after you have torn it off.

Now, use a pair of scissors to slightly cut the corners round.  You gotta work this quick before the polish sheet withers.

Then quickly place it on another nail and press the excess away.

And all toes glamorously completed!

I can still use my packet for another time for toes since I still have 50% left.

However, it seems that it is not advisable to keep the strips open for long, probably that the adhesive will wear out after exposing to the air.

So the best is to share it with someone ;)

You can add a top coat if you wish, but I did not.

I admit that I struggled a little for the first nail, but overall it is quite easy to use once you get the hang of it.

Availability: All Sephoras

Price: RM36.90

Honestly, I don’t think I can part with my money for this as it is quite pricey, almost the price of a OPI nail polish at 20% off ;)

Will you give it a try? ;) Oh, they have the designs for French art too.

They look incredibly easy to apply yet I failed +__+ Like you, I tried to ‘recycle’ the sticker but I ended up ruining nearly every single nail. :s I’m too clumsy for my own good! =( Thank you for sharing this with us! =)

That looks very pretty! I tried using stickers recently but they kept breaking off and ruining most of the nails. :(

I do wonder if you can still draw some art on top of these? Or are the top potion too smooth for anything to stick? :)

Oooh, did I read right that they have it in the French manicure type too? That would be awesome…I would be curious to see how this works out.

Wow! A pack’s enough for both hands and feet? At least they’re more affordable than the Sally Hansen ones though the designs are limited.

yeah a pack of sticks are meant for both hands and feet ;) quite a bargain compared to sally hansen, but also, it doesn’t come with any other tools like the buffer and the stick
