Hi there & welcome to BdaKiNE.com 😁
I used to be obsessive about my nails to the point that I would drive 2+ hours from San Diego to Los Angeles once a week to get them done. After a while, the acrylics started to damage my nails so I stopped, plus the LA traffic was killing me anyway.
Chipped polish is one of my pet peeves and I’m hard on my nails so regular manicures didn’t last long. The frustration wasn’t worth it, so I went au natural instead. When Shellac came onto the market – heaven!!! Unfortunately, my day to day schedule became rather unpredictable so it was impossible to keep a regular appointment. I tried doing them myself and that was of course a disaster.
Recently, I discovered nail stickers and now I have a new addiction!! I love all of the colors and fun patterns and best of all, it’s super easy for me to do myself. My favorites are by Incoco and Sally Hansen. My nails grow really fast so I usually switch them out after a week or so. I think the key to their staying power and shine is that I put a coat of clear shellac over them. See, it wasn’t a total waste buying the shellac polish and CND dryer! So far, so good; the stickers/clear shellac don’t damage my nails and they remove pretty easily with acetone nail polish remover.
Some of the patterns are probably a bit young for me but they make me smile so who cares! I love my nail stickers; they bring me JOY and they BdaKiNE.
Thank you for visiting BdaKiNE.com & have a grateful day 🌞 Hugs, Lori 😘
