DIY Nail Art with OPI Pure Lacquer Nail Apps | Review + Swatches

I may seem a little late to the nail app craze but trust me it's been on my radar for a minute now and I'm finally getting around to trying them for myself. There are so many nail company's that offer nail apps and OPI has recently jumped on board. Their selection is probably the best I've seen so far. They currently carry 14 different styles and each set comes with 16 nail strips. Each strip is made of 100% real nail polish and  best of all they're easy to apply and they remove just like normal nail polish with nail remover.

Glow: What I love most about OPI's nail apps are the beautifully intricate designs. They are super easy to apply, all you have to do is peel, stick, and file them into place and you're set. Once you've done 1 or 2 you pretty much get the hang of it. I really like the nail app trend in general because it makes nail art simple and far less costly. There's zero drying time and the wear is pretty good, I got about 5 days of wear out of them. The application also isn't messy which makes the clean up process pretty smooth.

Glare: There's a strong nail polish-like smell that hits you once you open the foil packaging but I'm assuming it's just from the nail apps being tightly sealed. The good part is that the smell goes away as soon as they hit the air. I was a bit disappointed with the initial peeling that I experienced within only a few hours after applying them. They peeled a bit around the top edges but fortunately since the design is so busy it's not really noticeable. Once they seemed to settle the peeling did stop.      

Would I Recommend It? Yes! I mean they're super cute and make do-it-yourself nail art a breeze. If you're into nail art I'd definitely suggest at least trying these out once. 

Where To Buy: Pure Lacquer Nail Apps are available at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, JCPenney, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and ULTA, for the suggested retail price of $11.95. To purchase or to learn more please visit opi.com.
