Hellooo!! Good morning or afternoon!
Long time no see. I finally managed to open the locked polish cabinet and as luck would have had it, my internet service was conked off for a few days. Life is seriously difficult without internet!!
Today I have on review, L'oreal Paris' Color Riche Le Nail Art Stickers.
L'oreal has recently released these 3-D nail art stickers here in India.
Here's a small snipet from their PR on these:
I loved the black and gold ones the most. These stickers are textured, hence the 3-D claim. Designs are nice and very wearable. you can check other designs here: Loreal's facebook Page
These Stickers cost: Rs 299/- for a single pack for 18 stickers. Adjusting for various sizes and fits of a person's nails, you'd get one wear out of these. They are sturdy material and wont tear when you remove or apply them.
However I find the pricing a bit steep for one manicure. But yeah considering if you are someone who goes to nail spa's for ur manis, this is a cheaper option.
I have a small pic demo if you are keen to try them: coz I found it a bit tricky to apply them cleanly.
1) remove the sticker from the package. Peel by holding the end of the sticker that will go on your tips. So incase you get a crease or fold, that end is extra long and will be cut off.
2) First place the tip of the sticker carefully over the base of your nails, aligning the sides in a straight line. See pic below.
3) now as shown press the sticker in sequence as shown, slightly tugging at the sides/ends to make sure there are no creases and folds in the centre and sides.
4) You can cut off the excess with a scissor or file it down as shown on the package. just be gentle when filing and do it in one direction from top to down. and you're DONE!!
I managed to place most stickers nicely except the pointer finger which got a bit creased at the tip and side.
Overall they r a bit pricey and tricky to apply. While id o like the textured feel, they didnt last me long. One shower and I had the ends starting to loosen up. I'd recommend these if you dont have the time to do a fancy mani and are really keen to spice up your nails for an evening.
Till I see you next! xx
