Review: OMG Nail Strips | Geometric & Houndstooth

Hi loves!
It has been AGES since I last posted. Too many things have happened and I have been so caught up with life that blogging was one thing I neglected, unfortunately. Anyhow, that is for another post. Today, I want to share with you lovelies a review on some OMG Nail Strips* I received a while back!




What is OMG Nail Strips and what does it claim?

OMG Nail Strips is an online sitw which sells nail strips made from real nail polish because they can stretch and have a unique resistance to chipping, tearing and wrinkling.  They are easy to dry, last up to 10 days, and also dry instantly upon application.

If your looking for the best nail sticker / strip on the market you have found it.  With over 100 designs and our inventory constantly growing we are sure you will find the perfect nail appliques for any occasion!

Houndstooth Nail Polish strips

Here's the instructions on how to apply these babies:-




Application/Texture/Consistency: These nail polish strips look and feel somewhat plastic-y and are made of slightly thicker material compared to some other nail polish strips I have tried. However, that does not make application of these strips any less difficult. Most nail strips pretty much fit my nail size and I found that they stretched quite well in order for me to fit them exactly to the shape of my nails.

These strips are single-ended which is fine for those with long nails, but I have rather short nails and hate wasting product, so I do my best to cut the strips into half so that I can use them for two nails - hee!

I applied the nails strips according to its instructions which are really helpful as they are so detailed! I think it would have been lovely and probably made application slightly easier if there were pictures to accompany the instructions so that I can picture how to apply the strips. However, it's only a teeny issue so I am not fussed at all - just have to use my imagination! Removal of these strips were easy-peasy - just use nail polish remover and everything comes off!





Design: I absolutely love the designs I received! I have always wanted to try Houndstooth nail polish strips and when I put these on my nails, they looked so pretty and chic that I could not stop staring at them. The Geometric design is equally as unique and the lines in the design made my nails look so edgy and futuristic. I received so many compliments from wearing these strips - so I can tell you these designs are definitely showstoppers!

Durability: This is where a topcoat becomes essential. I tested applying topcoat on one hand and leaving the other side without a topcoat. The nail strips with topcoat felt smooth to the touch, looked very glossy and lasted about 12 days before there was significant chipping. The 12 days exceeds the 10 days claim so I was rather impressed! The nail strips without a topcoat looked matte; the surface of the nail strips felt slightly sticky and tacky and only lasted approximately 4 days. Interesting part? I could peel off the strips which did not have topcoat (although I do not recommend this as it is really bad for the nails)!  So always apply a topcoat with these strips to ensure that your digits look glossy and last long!


Here are some pictures to give you a rough idea of how I applied the strips:-






Look at how pretty the strips look on my nails! Sorry for the slight chips and tears in some nails strips. I was a bit rough applying them that day. Hee!
