Nailed It!


Confession: I am a hoarder.  I have more nail polish than any one person should be allowed to accumulate.  Luckily, the bottles are small enough that hundreds can be contained in several shoe boxes placed under my bed.  This wouldn't make for a good television so my family and friends have been unable to get A&E to agree to an intervention.  I am always searching for something new to try, and I came across DesignFX a new nail applique.  Having tried the Sally Hansen Salon Effects and not being entirely thrilled (they were so hard to get off!), I was skeptical.  This was until I read through the application process.  Unlike the Sally Hansen skins these are applied and then a gel is brushed over the applique to seal the edges.  Then you place the nail under a UV lamp to cure for 2 minutes.  If you want to see the application process they have a great video on their website.  I will do a full review after testing but I was just so excited about this I wanted to share it with all of you!  Please let me know if you have tried it and what you think.

Carnival

Look Don't Touch
Style Infection
These photos are of the DesignFx 'Bling' collection.  As you can see, they are 3D embedded bejeweled designs.  They do also carry less flashy prints and colors.  To me these put a classy spin on bejeweled nails and look more sophisticated than the french manicure acrylics with rhinestones that were popular years past.  Enjoy your weekend!
