OMG Nail Strips Review

Press Sample

Hello lovelies!!! Today I have a different type of review for you! Exciting right?!! I was contacted about reviewing some nail stickers from a new brand called OMG Nail Strips!! They offer a wide variety of very cute, fun, and easy to use nail stickers. I found the variety to be very appealing to many tastes and they are inexpensive! The application process is very easy, which helps when you are having nail fail attempts, are in a rush, or just want to try something different.

These are the instructions and a video tutorial provided by the maker:

  • Soak your hands in warm water for 5 minutes. Dry hands, then gently push back cuticles. Carefully remove any excess skin around the nail bed.
  • Moisturize your hands with lotion, and wait 1 minute.
  • Using a Q-tip, remove any leftover lotion from the nail bed, paying special attention to the sidewalls, cuticle area and tip of the fingernail.
  • Select the appropriate sized nail strip for each nail to ensure the nail will be covered from sidewall to sidewall. Using a nail strip that is too large for a particular nail is not recommended; rather, trim the strip the scissors to the appropriate width.
  • Peel off the clear coating, and then carefully remove the nail polish strip from the sticker backing,
  • Start by placing whichever end on the nail strip that works better for your nails at the cuticle and  apply it by smoother the strip towards the tip and your nail, smoothing out and bumps and ensuring the strip is tucked neatly into the sidewalls.
  • File away any excess nail strip by holding your nail file parallel to the surface you are working on, as filing the nail perpendicularly will cause tearing along the tip.
  • After you have applied all ten polish strips, take a cotton ball the has been dipped in polish removed with the excess remover wrung out, and swipe each nail 1-3 times, paying special attention to the sidewalls, tips and cuticle area. This step is especially important, as it melts the strip to your nails, allowing for longer lasting wear.
  • Apply a finishing topcoat, and wait 5 minutes for it to dry completely.

  • Although it may seem like a lot, most of the steps you probably take during your regular manicure routine. I have 2 different designs to show you. In order to prevent repeating myself, the following were true for both sets of strips I used: (1) Application was easy and quick (2) I did experience some minor tip wear over the course of the day and (3) Removal was easy. 

    The first set of strips are called Tiger Style Nail Strips. These create an interesting pattern, without being too flashy! I actually got away with these at my internship! Compliments galore, especially since they were so realistic that people thought I did the nail art designs myself!! HAHA! I wish I could!

     Unfortunately, my lighting made this one appear slightly bumpy; however, it was completely smooth to the nails in all areas, except one small spot.

    The next set of strips I have to show you are Psychedelic Zebra Nail Strips. These are really fun and the colors are the PREFECT combo!!
