Coconut Nail Art

If you read my post about the summer walmart beauty box then you know it had the Coconut Nail Art in it. I put them on and wanted to show how it turned out!  

 These are the ones I got (I got the same print in the trendsetter and classic box). Seeing these in the box I wasn’t a huge fan on the print, but figured I would try them out anyways. So in the box was the polish strips, instructions, and a little emery board (for trimming off the excess). You should know I don’t regularly paint my nails I just think it takes to much time and they never come out smooth and nice looking for me. I’ve also never used any kind of nail strips like this either. At first it was kind of hard to get them on at the right angle, but after the first couple it got easy. In the instructions it says to gently pull at the polish to stretch it if it’s not big enough, I tried that and it did not work. Silly me I didn’t realize until I got to my thumb (I started at my pinky) that there is six strips! So for my nails I shouldn’t have used the little one at the end, because then I went down the row and the rest where a bit to small. Oops, at least the second hand I used the right sizes.  

 This is how they turned out! I actually liked the print a lot once I saw it actually on the nail, I liked that it was very simple and pretty. You couldn’t see the spots where I used the too small strips unless you looked real close. I really loved how they turned out! I put them on on a Sunday night, and on Friday they looked like this: 

 Very little amount of chipping, the only problem for me was where my nail had grown out I could feel the edge of the strips and it was too tempting to pick at them, so Friday night I ended I peeling them off. I have to at they held on better than I had thought. I loved how easy these where to apply, I’ve read directions for other brands of nail strips that said you had to apply heat and different stuff that just sounds like too much work. I looked at these at walmart and they have probably about 10 different style prints, and cost like $4.88 I think (so basically almost the whole cost of a walmart beauty box!) for me personally that’s not an amount I would spend for 5 days of nail wear on a regular basis, but I sure would buy them if I have an event I am going to or just want to have cute nails once in a while, because I hate painting my nails! I definatly recommend checking these out!
