Manic(ure) Monday: Christmas Nail Patch


Today it's Christmas Eve and you're probably all having your outfits ready for tonight or tomorrow but do you also have your Christmas manicure ready? I sure do as I just applied these gorgeous nail patches I bought at Hema some time ago. It was the first time that I applied nail patches so I thought I'd just share this experience with you and show you the result:


You'll need your nail patches, a nail file and nail polish remover. Clean your nails with the nail polish remover.


Take your nail patches...


...and choose the right size for your fingers.


Apply the nail patches and smooth down the surface. 


File off any excess from the top down.


Et voilĂ !


Conclusion: It was really easy to apply the patches and didn't take a lot of time. I didn't manage to apply the patches without bruises though but I think that the more you practice the better your manicure will turn out. The only bad thing about these patches is that the smallest patch was still slightly too big for my pinkie. It still looked good in the end but if you have extremely narrow nails you might have some problems with these. The packaging doesn't say for how long the patches will stay on your nails but it says that they can easily be removed by peeling them of starting from the side corner of the cuticle area. So I'll have to see whether they stay on for a long time or not and tell you next week.
Did you already make experiences with nail patches? And what is your Christmas manicure this year? I wish you and your families a very merry Christmas.

  13. I saw these in a magazine but my nails are too short now to do this, they all broke off from too many gel manicures. I got some press on nails at the Lucky FABB blog conference and I think I may try them for New Years Eve.

  14. I've seen these around for a while now but been sitting on the fence about them. One, is it idiot proof for someone like me to do (LOL) and two, do they look ok! Well you have convinced me to finally try them out! Though I do have slightly narrow nails too so I don't know how it will turn out for me :o(

    Merry Christmas!
