NAIL ROCK NAIL WRAPS- First attempt

I have seen so many disaster attempts of nail wrapping that I wasn't surprised that my first attempt didn't go too well :) I started with my pinky and it looks quite good, my ring finger is ok too, but the rest of my nails don't look good at all. Obviously I need practice, because I have seen many beautiful nail wrap manicures and they were perfect.  The design I got would be perfect for a festival or as a fun manicure for a party.
NAIL ROCK RAVE NATION NAIL WRAPS* £6.70 link
"Rave nation nail wrap collection featuring a selection of on-trend bright yellow with smiley faces, the nail wraps have a new adhesive backing to ensure for an easy application. Simply peel off the backing, trim to fit the nail if necessary, press firmly onto the nail and file away any excess"  

I really need more practice with nail wraps, I have got two other designs and I will be updating you soon with my next attempt. The set comes with 16 nail shaped wraps to fit different nail sizes, a nail file to trim the excess wrap, a wooden stick and a wipe to prepare your nails. The application took me 10 minutes and the two nails I actually managed to do properly are still in perfect condition and look exactly the way they looked yesterday. I will let you know how long they lasted on my nails in my next post. It says that they can last up to 10 days if done perfectly. 
Don't take me seriously, please :) haha

there is one tiny crease on my pinky but I managed to smooth it out later.

  3. I've always wanted to try nail wraps but i'm scared that i will apply it horribly and waste the whole thing. Nail wraps are a cool idea but i don't think it will ever replace the conventional nail polishes :p hehe. Thanks for sharing and i hope your next attempt would turn out better now that you've had experience on applying them~x

  4. I bought the Sally Hansen wraps, and they did not work:( I may try them out again, but I am afraid I will just waste my money because it was such a failure the first time. Yours look really nice though!

  5. These wraps look so cool! I agree, they would be a good look for a festival. I'm too scared to try wraps because I know even if I practised I would be horrible at it! Xo

  9. My attempt at nail wraps went so horribly wrong that I threw them away in frustration! I really want to try some Sally Hansen or OPI nail wraps as they look thinner and are made of actual polish, so I imagine they're easier to work with x

    1. Only if I managed to do all the nails properly... The pinky looks perfect after doing the dishes and house work. I think that it will stay on for a couple of days.
