Goodmorning! Today I have OMG Nail Strips to review. OMG Nail Strips are made out of real nail polish and don't require any heat to apply them.
Each package comes with 2 sheets of 7 different sized nail polish strips.
|Here's the instructions that come on the back of the package.|
Here's my 1st attempt with the nail strips. I followed all of the instructions. I did end up trimming some of the strips because they are quite large compared to other nail strips I have used in the past. I used Seche Vite Quick Drying Top Coat as I always do with my manicures, and the polish strip disintegrated. At first I didn't realize it and thought I got some garbage on my nail, so I went for a 2nd coat on my middle finger and finally realized what happened.
After realizing the strip was made out of nail polish, I removed the first set and tried again with this 2nd set. Instead of trimming the polish strips, I used a clean up brush with polish remover to fit them to size perfectly. I also did an extra, optional, but recommended step and used polish remover on a cotton ball to go over each nail a few times to allow them to adhere better to the nail. In addition, instead of Seche Vite, I used the only other topcoat I own--Konad Top Coat. Results were better, but the strip looked bubbly and not shiny. I felt like I was wearing stickers and not nail polish.
|I ended up doing a full mani to test these out for a few days.|
|Be careful if you decide to run polish remover over the nail for better adherence to the nail, you might end up removing some of the strip like I did on my thumb.|
|Here's what it looked like after 3 days. Tip wear was not great and if you click to enlarge, each nail with the polish strip shows large cracks.|
|Minimal tip wear on the corner of my nail with regular nail polish.|
|Here's my other hand after 3 days. Again, poor tip wear and cracking shown with the polish strips and minimal tip wear with regular polish.|
Overall, I was not pleased with the OMG Nail Strips. They're so large that I had to end up using the same size on my ring and pointer finger so that means I run out of that size before I can even get to the other hand, making it difficult to do a full manicure. Also cutting them down to size disrupts the shape of the strip. After I cut mine, I found it difficult to align with my nail bed. The polish strips also don't seem to work well with both of the topcoats I used as one disintegrated and one appeared bubbly and dull. Wear was not great after just 3 days. If you have larger nail beds and have a topcoat that works, you may have a better experience than I did. You can purchase these polish strips here for $6.89. You can also purchase 4 sets for $20 with coupon code “4pack” and 10 sets for $45 with coupon code “10pack.”
