Product Review: Hot Topic Press on Nail Polish
|Product: Hot Topic Press on Nail Polish|
|Buy it: Hot Topic Stores|
Happy Friday Divas! If you're following me on twitter you've already seen a sneak peek of my uber cool mani from last weekend. Let's break it down and see what this Press on nail polish is all about!
Press on Nail Polish you say? Yes! If you'd ask this Addict about Press on Nail Polish a few months ago, I'd just roll my eyes and shake my head in shame. Because fact of the matter, I can paint my nails faster than fooling around with this little package. But, Hot Topic had me at Leopard!
This isn't your typical Press on Nail Polish...It's a gradient of neon colors with a Leopard style design! The nail art is a huge bonus. For me, it would be next to impossible to replicate this look without Minxing it. If your not familiar with Minx, it's a polymer nail covering that uses heat to adhere to the nail.
Think stickers for your nails. While Minx uses a heating process, these don't. Each package includes a total of 16 stickers, 8 different nail sizes. With the misfortune of my small nail beds, any pre-sized artificial nail or sticker usually runs ten times bigger. Needless to say, I had to customize each one with my handy cosmetic scissors.
Application is the most important step. The true enemy is air. When applying the sticker to your nail, make sure it's completely sealed with no air gaps. Flatten and finish edges with a nail file to take off remaining excess.
If applied correctly, the nail polish stickers may last a good 3+ days. To remove, remove gently by peeling from edge.
Check out one more swatch below.
Easy enough? Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I saw those on your twitter the other day and thought they looked amazing, I can\'t believe those are stickers. o.O I need some, hopefully these will show up on ebay because I\'m in Sweden and we don\'t get hot topic here.

Would the wear last longer if you applied a top coat over them, or would that not work.

That is really a sexy look! I've seen these type of stickers on a couple of other blogs. They look easy enough to do. Especially for the nail art challenged person.

The mystery revealed! These are gorgeous, I may have to check those out! I went hunting for faux nad plates at Hot Topic and saw these but I dismissed them. I really need to be better about just "dismissing" things. I miss out!
