Nail Stickers: Maybelline & Donna Michelle

Now here's a blast from the past. A few months ago, I got a great deal on some nail stickers from the Dollar Tree. One brand was Maybelline, and the other was Donna Michelle (the dollar tree brand). My only regret is that I didn't put enough effort into the Maybelline stickers to make them last longer than one day.

 
  
Remove the nail sticker from the plastic
  1. Align the appropriate sized nail sticker to your nail. 
  2. Gently fold over the free edge and tear off the excess.
  3. Repeat steps 1 & 2 for all nails. 
 These only lasted for the day because I didn't bother to put a coat of clear polish to make them stay. I'd say for $1, these are great if you want to quickly change your nails for a night out. They definitely
aren't made for prolonged wear.

CON: The nail stickers weren't wide enough for my nails. I found myself having to use the excess sticker to cover the sides.

So for the Donna Michelle stickers, I applied those slightly differently.

 

Remove the nail sticker from the plastic.
  1. Paint a white base coat on the nails (I thought the stickers were clear). 
  2. Align the appropriate sized nail sticker to your nail. Gently fold over the free edge and tear off the excess.
  3.  Apply a Gel top coat and cure under LED or UV light. 
  4. Repeat steps 1, 2, and 3 for all nails. 
So these did last a bit longer, I think it was about 3 days before they started to come off.

All in all, nail stickers are great if you want a quick and temporary change to your nails.
