Oh Models Own, when will you stop being so awesome? Fresh from delivering us a great collection of speckled nails, blogger favourite Models Own are launching these fab little nail art kits this March. Available in three varieties, each pack contains a polish and a sheet of stickers that can be added to nails in seconds. You’ve got the option of white polish with colourful paint blobs, lilac polish with delicate floral designs, as well as red polish with corresponding batman inspired cartoon bubbles. Although the polish is nothing special, the devil is in the detail of the cute stickers – there’s no need to faff around creating intricate nail art designs when you can wack on a sticker and get the same effect in no time at all.
Unlike many other nail art adornments which are clunky and have trouble sticking, these are sticky enough to attach right onto a polish nail with ease – no top coat required! The sticker is really thin and the transparent edges ensure there’s enough of it to hold on to, making these a great treat for nail lovers. The stickers really do stay in place until you want to remove them, with no flaking, curling or catching on tights… In fact they take a little effort and some scraping to remove from the nail once you’ve soaked it in nail varnish remover.
The sticker sheets come in a strange ‘L’ shape, designed to fit around the pot in the cute packaging, which does make them look a bit odd and a pain to store away. However, you get plenty to create at least two full manicures – more if you use them to adorn just a few nails for a statement look. I’m actually in love with these stickers and hope they release them as a stand-alone addition to their nail range; it’s a pain to have to keep re-buying polish when all you want is the stickers.
I personally think the stickers all look great over white nails (which are so hot for spring,) which also helps to blend the design and hide the transparent edges. However, you can of course mix and match polish colours and be as creative as you’d like. At £6.00 a set these don’t break the bank either, making fab intricate nail designs achievable rather than just a dream. What do you think of these cute new kits?
The Models Own ‘Sticky Nails’ collection launches this March into Boots and Superdrug, as well as their Bottleshops and online. Priced £6.00 per kit.
