Static Nails

Fangirls, I have had my eye on Static Nails for almost a year now; lusting over them and thinking, I’ll never have a time to wear them, so I never bought them. That is, I didn’t buy them until I got a vacation to NY for a week when I knew I wouldn’t be needing to be doing any serious work (my job was packing boxes, now it’s putting papers in envelopes; neither is a great place for long nails). So I grabbed a set and put them on while I was in New York.

Espionage Cosmetics: Laura + Luci Nail Wraps

Fangirls, I love comics. I love reading about them, wearing them, supporting them,seeing them in movie form; any way I can take them in, I like to. Since I have a full time job with a strict dress code and don’t do much on my time off, ripping nerd clothes doesn’t happen as much as I’d like. But recently I found out about Espionage Cosmetics, a cosmetic company focused on all things nerdy. One of their specialties is nail wraps, so I became incredibly excited when I found their Laura + Luci and Baal + Inanna nail wrap sets. I started off by ordering just the Laura + Luci set, because they’re my girls, and it had been awhile since I read the comics, so they stood out to me more (plus the pink/purple/blue suits my wardrobe more).

NAC Nail Wraps

Fangirls, not only do I refuse to stop purchasing nail products, I honestly don’t think I can stop. I have a drawer full of nail polish (many duplicates), and I continue to buy more. And now that I know about, and kind of understand nail wraps, I keep buying those too. I had my boy (who has Amazon Prime, praise) order me some cute space themed nail wraps from NAC (Nail Art Club Inc), by way of Amazon. I love shopping with Amazon Prime because I get my stuff the next day, which is wonderful since I’m the least patient person on the planet. So I got my cute space nail wraps, and squealed a bunch over how cute they were. Then I got down to business, and applied the little dudes.

Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips

Alright Fangirls, this sucks. I hate when things don’t work, for pretty obvious reasons. That happened with these Nail Polish Strips. I went a bit bonkers after I had such great luck with the Personails strips, that I found some strips my mother had given me a couple years back, and ordered a couple different types from across the internet. I want to tell you guys what works and what doesn’t. Sadly, the Sally Hansen ones are a flop.

Personal Nail Wraps

Alright, Fangirls. Yesterday I raved about how pumped I am to be trying out Personail 100% Nail Wraps this past week, and I wasn’t kidding. These adorable little nail wraps have taken over my life, and I can’t get enough of them. I ordered 3 sets from Personail a couple weeks ago, and got mine in last week. I considered waiting awhile to put them on, but once I checked them out, I couldn’t leave them in their packages.

Warm Wishes Nail Lacquer Collection from Ulta Beauty

Though my hands aren’t the first thing you see when you meet me, I always try to make a good impression with them. That has led me to having a passionate love for nail polish. Much like lipstick, nail polish is something I need to not buy anymore, because I have so much of it. I think it’s a small thing that I can control in my daily life, and I need that little bit of control, the way my anxiety is.
