Nail Fraud Nail Decals

June 25, 2012

I tried out a different brand of nail art strips yesterday: Nail Fraud Nail Decals. I tried the Black and White Dots pattern…

Application was so-so. I still struggle with nail stickers like this. The perfectionist in me doesn’t like how the shape near my cuticle doesn’t match as perfectly as I would get it when using traditional polish.

I also don’t like that the “polish” doesn’t smoothy wrap around the edge of the nail. In the photos above you can see the very tip of my nails. My nails are generally really sharp so I like wearing polish on them to soften the edges. These nail decals don’t really do that since they don’t extend past the tip of your nail. :( And a day after I applied these, I can feel them lifting (and I even used a top coat over them). :(

Also, they’re not entirely smooth. As seen on my pointer finger in the pictures, they all have a weird “orange peel” texture. It’s strange.

So, all in all, they’re pretty cute, but I think I prefer regular polish and stamping. On the packaging it says they last up to a week, but I don’t think they’ll last that long. :)

    I could tell right away in the pictures that it wasn’t as smooth an application. I love that nail polish leaves my nails smooth. It’s still a cute design though!

    They are cute, but the texture would drive me crazy!!! I’m a Seche Vite girl as well, and can’t stand anything but a glassy finish ; )

    Have you tried the new Sally Hansen Magnetic polish yet? I tried it on a whim, and am loving the results. It works beautifully with the Seche Vite too!!! Added bonus.

    Hi Kristina,
    I’m having a hard time getting my nails done right, they end up looking not as smoth as I would prefer and lots of tiny little bubbles :(

    Hey Kristina,
    Any chance you can share some of your favorite nail blogs with us? It seems hard to find good ones … other than yours of course :o)

    They’re not as good as a professional manicure. But… My nails chip and peel after repeated applications of traditional polish. I liked these because they protected my nails as they grew out again. I applied a top coat of polish to bring on some shine.
