Oh my Gold!

Monday, January 20, 2014



I've been remiss with the blog lately, but to ease myself back into a proper routine, I blog bearing my favourite nail accessory of the week.

I've been wearing the Essie Sleek Stick in Oh my Gold! ($10.99) since the beginning of the weekend and I'm in love.

I cannot stress enough the convenience of instant nail art, especially for my clumsy hands. Oh my Gold is a gorgeous metallic and gold hexagonal pattern. Actually, it looks like a blinged out honeycomb. The geometric design is over a transparent base, which means you could layer it over any colour of your choice for an even more unique look. I just went with a bare nail, but it still looks far from plain. It catches the light beautifully.

 

This is only the third day of wear, but there’s no peeling / lifting in sight. I did have a bit of trouble applying the first strip though. It was entirely my own fault because I forgot I had applied cuticle oil to my nails. A tip: use a cotton swab & nail polish remover to clean your nails first. It will help the strip stick on much better.

 

I’d definitely recommend these, perhaps for a special occasion, or maybe to spice up your Monday Mani? I want to get another set so I can set it over a base color, I’m thinking a turquoise or a blue… maybe even get some metallic on metallic action going.

 

Let me know what you’re wearing on your nails today! x

  6. This is so unique and looks so cool! I agree that nail art stickers are an amazingly convenient/fast way to achieve a nail look that otherwise would've been complex and time-consuming if you actually painted it on with polishes and used nail art tools.

  9. I really must not be using nail strips right because I can never get them to look so smooth at the tips! I ALWAYS have creasing at the tips and I think I've tried nail strips like 10 times! These look fabulous on your nails!
