Jinx stickers are jinxed [Challenge Post]

First thing first: I had a peeling nail that I noticed after taking off the hideous green on Monday. Thankfully, I had picked up Orly Nail Rescue kit at Sally's on Friday. It says it is 3 easy steps, and they actually mean it!

I brushed on the glue, dipped my finger in the powder, then did that process again. My nail was super strong! I buffed to make it smooth, and applied my Orly Nail Armor to smooth it out more. Then started painting...

I chose Shades of the Season (a generic set of polishes that came in a long tub, from CVS) "Pink Glitter" is what I call it, as none of them have names. I was, and continue to be super impressed with this polish. After 3 days of wear, I don't see much of a problem.

Now, I wanted an accent finger, but was being lazy, so I though I would use some of my nail polish strips. I picked Jinx "Pink Stripes" (also not named). Now, I have used the Sally Hansen strips before, and thought I knew what to expect. I was wrong. These were more "sticker" than polish in my opinion. I was not impressed. In addition to that, about half an hour after I was done taking pictures and doing my thing, THEY CAME OFF! They peeled right off. What the fuck? heck?

So, I reapplied, but this time I put a coat of the SotS pink on, and it looked even better than before. Guess what? THEY CAME RIGHT OFF AGAIN! So, by this time, I am fully annoyed, and tired of screwing with them, so I just painted my index fingers pink like the other nails.

Again, I am super impressed with the color and glitter factor of this "cheap" Shades of the Season polish! There are 6 or so more for me to use! Check your local CVS, they might still have some! Only $10 for 7 or 8 colors!

I'm not sure if I will repaint tonight, or just redo my index fingers (I didn't put a thick enough coat on, plus one of my fingernails peeled.) I guess we will find out :D

  1. Hi! I would like to open beauty salon. Does anybody have an experience in this business? There are too many options in different salon equipment. Could anybody give me an advise? What store is more reliable to buy White towel warmer and Nail salon towel warmer. I'm choosing between Advance-Esthetic.Com and websites.
