My mom bought some at Christmas as a stocking stuffer. The brand was Piggy Paint and the style was the flower style. I, of course, couldn't wait to try them out!
I was able to use them shortly after the Holidays combined with some Acquarella's nail polish—in the color Fightmaster with the Conditioner as a topcoat.
In order to first prep my nails, I cut, filed and, then, washed them with soap. I would have loved to use a buffer because I am under the impression it does help the polish last longer. However, I don't own one.
I then applied two coats of polish and allowed them to dry a little before applying the stickers: one on each of my thumbs and ring fingers.
Because Acquarella is water-based it does get ruined in water—this only happens when I paint my fingernails and not my toenails.
I was very pleasantly surprised at how long the flower stickers lasted. I did have my hands in water many times and this did not cause any damage for a week before they started to peel. I must preface that when I say water, I mean water and suds—as in doing the dishes.
Also, you must understand that I am far from careful when I have my nails painted. This tidbit of information implies that one week, for me, is quite significant.
I am so pleased that I do plan on buying more patterns.
The available styles are listed below.
Here are the pictures of my nails after I had finished them.
