Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh why didn’t I listen to my mum’s sound advice of never picking up items from a clearance bin? Maybe because she’s never uttered those words as she loves a good bargain about as much as I do! Damn it, I had such high hopes for these nail stickers because 1) they’re called Rock Beauty and I’m a rock chick 2) they were only $7.50 from Priceline’s clearance bin and 3) I just like things to be odd numbers and I couldn’t leave it to only two points *shrug*
Actually I can think of a third point – while I was in Sydney earlier in the year, my friend Daphne and I went to the Mardi Gras Harbour Party and we bumped into a rep from Rock Beauty who was down from London. He gave us his two minute spiel about the company and how they were expanding into stick on eye make-up, yadda yadda yadda. So since bumping into him I’ve wanted to try the brand. Good enough third point?!
This is a gift set with three different nail art wrap designs; Tribal Gold, White Dots on Red (which really sold it for me) and Jade Quail – and I can safely say all three were big fat DUDS! I thought they’d be like Sally Hansen’s Nail Polish Strips, which are just fabulous and ever so easy to use. The Sally Hansen stickers are super tacky and adhere to your nail immediately. These Rock Beauty wraps are sooooo bad they barely clung to my nail for me to shape them and then as soon as I tried to apply a top coat to them, thinking that it’d stick better, they completely fell off! Sheer nail-fuckery!! I feel so duped 😦
I would NOT recommend using these wraps to anyone – and I hate giving bad reviews, but you know me dollface(s) – I don’t want to bullshit you! Lesson learnt; stop sniffing around the discount bins!
