NCLA Nail Wraps & Julep Fiore

Wednesday, December 11, 2013

Hi guys!

Sorry about being kind of nonexistent the last week -- I had a bunch of extracurricular stuff going on (I still do, sigh). It's all fun stuff, but it leaves me with almost no time for nail art :( 

However, I did have time to do a design using nail wraps! (is that cheating?)

NCLA x Peter Som nail wraps & Julep Fiore
One of my family members gave me these nail wraps. These are part of NCLA's collaboration with famous designers -- this one is a collaboration with Peter Som. This design comes in a packet with a dark version of the same design, I'm going to have to try them together one day! 

I paired it with Julep Fiore, which I bought on Black Friday for $1!! They were having a Black Friday sale and I just couldn't resist -- $1 and free shipping?! I'm just surprised I restricted myself to one polish. Did you guys take advantage of the sale too? 

This design looks good from far away, but it looks kind of blah in these macro shots!

I feel like my nail wrap application could've been better. For some reason I thought my pointer fingernail was a lot wider than it really was, so I ended up having to tear a couple mm off the edge of that wrap; and the middle finger just looks funky. And then I only did two thin coats of Fiore -- definitely could've used a third.

Yeah, it does look better from farther away.
Well, I have to go prepare for an English seminar, so that's all for today! (wow, I feel like this blog post was jumping around all over the place)

Thanks for reading & be sure to let me know what you think!

  1. Oooh, those wraps are gorgeous! And I love that Julep!

  2. Beautiful job as always! Sometimes we all need to take time to get things done offline, it happens! I think the nail applique looks great, Probably better than my attempt would have been haha :) I don't own any Julep (not so much out of choice) but for $1?! That's crazy good :) Good luck on your English Seminar! xx

    1. Thanks so much! I think applying nail wraps is harder than it seems :) It was an amazing deal!

  3. The design on those nail wraps is so pretty! I love it paired with Fiore. :)

  4. Cool mani! :)

  5. They really had $1 juleps?? No way! I've never tried julep before

    1. Yep, it was really suprising -- I hadn't tried Julep either before this, $14 for 8 mL of polish seemed a little steep! Definitely worth $1 though :)

  6. This is so cool! Really like it:)


I'd love to hear what you're thinking!
