I posted this pic yesterday on Instagram of my new Lace Appliqué nails by Essie. I absolutely love them and knew I had to share a tutorial on how to properly apply them.
Click the "Read More" link below to find out how!
Push back cuticles with tool provided.
Find the size of appliqué that fits best.
Place appliqué on nail from cuticle to tip.
Using the flat end of the cuticle tool, press down and smooth down
After pressing, use the file to file downward on the nail.
Only file downward as to avoid tearing the appliqué.
Continue filing around the whole nail.
Then continue on with the rest of your hands.
I really love Essie's Appliqués. Sally Hansen makes some great ones too, however, I think their colors are a little more wild while I enjoy more simple designs. Sephora has plenty of great options too. The cost is fantastic as well, usually around twelve to fifteen dollars, the price of a manicure. Also these last much much longer and they don't chip and they don't damage your nails like Gels or Acrylics.
Sally Hansen has fun ones as well.
Hope you enjoyed this tutorial, and let me know if you end up trying any!
