I fell in love with this mirror-effect trend for nails, so when I found Maybelline New York’s new Color Show Fashion Prints Nail Stickers in Platinum Standard at the store, I had to give them a go!
Now the package reads, “up to 10 day wear”. I put these babies to the test and here’s my review:
On day 1 they looked great! I was totally in love, and my kids thought that they were really cool!
Day 2 was another story! The mirror finish was wearing off at my nail tips just after one night’s sleep! By the evening, they were looking pretty shabby. The stickers were also starting to peel slightly at the tip of a couple of my nails. I was really tempted to peel them all off, but I wanted to see what they looked like on day 3.
By the next morning, the finish was almost completely gone. 10-day wear? Not even close!!! I am so disappointed.
For about $8, the package only comes with enough stickers for one application and were only good for one day. For the same price, I could buy a decent polish that would last three times as long! However, the look for that one day, is unmatched by any nail polish. I would recommend these for a SPECIAL OCCASION ONLY. I’d also recommend prepping your nails well! I cleaned mine well and wiped them down with nail polish remover to get rid of any oil or soap residue. I’d also recommend trying a base coat. (I did not use a base coat, because the package says to apply to “bare nails”. However, I think I might opt for a base coat next time to see if it extends the wear. I even wonder if you would use a clear top coat.) If you’re looking more for an everyday look, SAVE YOUR MONEY!
