Painting your nails is one of the most obnoxious grooming experiences. First, there’s the ridiculous amount of precision involved, lest you get polish all over your cuticles. Then, there’s the preposterous amount of time spent waiting for the polish to dry so you can keep living your normal life. And, of course, after all that, there’s the fact that you usually end up smudging them or f*cking them up anyway.
It’s a shame, really — because decorated nails look cute as hell.
So, what are we sloppy manicurists supposed to do to get fancy nails? Why, just use some tricky nail wraps, of course.
It’s a brilliant solution! Like wrapping paper for an ugly cardboard box, except the ugly cardboard box is your fingernail! And the best part is that there is no (or very little) nail polish involved, so you won’t have to worry about your cuticles looking like victims in a paintgun war.
Here are some handy wraps to get your imagination rolling. No more nail polish messes for you! And, bonus: everyone will assume you have your nails done professionally all the time, like some sort of boss bitch.
