I'm currently sitting on the in-laws-to-be's sofa up in Liverpool (a little break between stuffing our faces for breakfast and stuffing our faces for tea) and thought I'd write a quick post!
I was recently send some products from Nailtopia to review, so that's what I'm showing you today :) I have three sheets of very cute stickers to show you!
Each pack consists of one sheet of stickers. The stickers are really thin, but they're almost a rubbery sort of material, so I didn't have any problems with them tearing or anything like that, and they happily laid flat on my nails.
First up, the tropical parrots! These are so bright and lovely, that they just NEEDED a bright gradient to go with them. I've run out of acetone though, so apologies for poor clean up! This sheet has a lovely mixture of sizes, colours and parrots facing different ways. You could do some cute nails with parrots sitting on branches and things :)
For the gradient, I sponged Max Factor Bright Orange over Rimmel Sunshine.
Next up, safari animals! I do love an excuse to do animal print nails... These stickers are all white (also available in black), and there are lions, giraffes, elephants, rhinos, kangaroos and some of those like deer-type things that you're not actually interested in seeing when you go to the zoo. It didn't occur to me until I started sticking the stickers on though that white stickers don't show up on white polish...d'oh.
If you want to see the polishes I used, or tutorials for any of the nails, check out this post.
Lastly, silver glittery stars! These are similar to the pink ones I reviewed from Born Pretty Store a few weeks ago, but thinner with that rubbery feel. I did waste a few of these though as I was trying to peel them off the sheet, because they're so thin some of them creased up. Otherwise they were easy to use though.
I used China Glaze Man Hunt and Barry M Blue Glitter for my super-sparkly base, with plenty of Seche Vite on top to make it all shiny.
All in all, I found these really easy to use. They were sticky enough that they didn't move once you'd put them on, but you could still peel them off without tearing them if you needed to reposition. They're also thin and flexible enough that they don't stick up from your nail.
You can take a look at these stickers on the following links: Tropical Parrots, Safari Animals and Shining Stars. Each pack costs £2.99 and delivery was super quick!
