With flashy nails enjoying a moment in the sun, polishes, tools and accessories for creating cool nails are everywhere. Unfortunately, all the inspiration in the world won’t help if your hand isn’t steady with a nail brush.
Enter Nail Rock. These super adhesive, nail-sized decals look like polish when applied, but help you to avoid dry time, smudging and poor handiwork. After a little buffing and scrubbing with an acetone wipe (provided with each set) to prep the nails, the strips are easy to apply. A small pair of nail scissors works best to trim the excess decal from the end of each nail.
We tried the British brand’s Valentine’s Day-themed nail wraps, available for a limited time at ebeauty.ca. We love the tiny black hearts and the way the metallic gold gleams.There’s also a set with a graphic multi-coloured heart for each digit.
