OMG Nail Strips : A Review

Hi there, my darlings! I was recently contacted my OMG Nail Strips about possibly reviewing their products and after taking a look at their website, I knew I couldn't refuse! I was asked to pick two designs that caught my eye and believe me, that was hard enough! They have a HUGE selection of nail strips to choose from and a wide range of designs. After a bit of thought I chose the Intrigue and the Black Peppermint sets. Take a look to see what I came up with!

Once I had these sets in hand, I realized that they would pair fantastically together for a quick, easy, gorgeous nail art look! From your response to my sneak peek on Instagram, I'd say you agree!

I followed the directions for use to the letter, except the second to last one which I seem to have forgotten :
  • Soak your hands in warm water for 5 minutes. Dry hands, then gently push back cuticles. Carefully remove any excess skin around the nail bed.
  • Moisturize your hands with lotion, and wait 1 minute.
  • Using a Q-tip, remove any leftover lotion from the nail bed, paying special attention to the sidewalls, cuticle area and tip of the fingernail.
  • Select the appropriate sized nail strip for each nail to ensure the nail will be covered from sidewall to sidewall. Using a nail strip that is too large for a particular nail is not recommended; rather, trim the strip the scissors to the appropriate width.
  • Peel off the clear coating, and then carefully remove the nail polish strip from the sticker backing,
  • Start by placing whichever end on the nail strip that works better for your nails at the cuticle and apply it by smoothing the strip towards the tip and your nail, smoothing out and bumps and ensuring the strip is tucked neatly into the sidewalls.
  • File away any excess nail strip by holding your nail file parallel to the surface you are working on, as filing the nail perpendicularly will cause tearing along the tip.
  • After you have applied all ten polish strips, take a cotton ball the has been dipped in polish removed with the excess remover wrung out, and swipe each nail 1-3 times, paying special attention to the sidewalls, tips and cuticle area. This step is especially important, as it melts the strip to your nails, allowing for longer lasting wear.
  • Apply a finishing topcoat, and wait 5 minutes for it to dry completely.

IMPRESSIONS : I love, love, LOVE how quick and easy these were to use! Ten minutes and I had a gorgeous mani done which would have taken me hours if I had created it myself. The designs weren't too over the top, allowing me to wear them comfortably to work and I got so many compliments on my nails that day. The only challenging part for me was the filing the excess off part--this doesn't really allow for wrapping the tips which I'm pretty insistent on doing. I did forget that final step which they mention is the most important step *facepalm* so I did see the strips lifting up along the sides after the third day. Next time, though, I intend to follow the directions to the last letter, despite the fact that I don't wear a mani more than 2 days! =P

So there you have it, my darlings! If you would like to pick up a few OMG nail strips for yourself or a loved one this holiday season, you can find it at HERE for the price of $7.99 for an eighteen pack set. A great price for a quick, DIY mani in the comfort of your own home!
