Orly - Glam Rock, and nail stickers

APPLICATION: Smooth, but had to be applied quickly as it dries fast.
COATS: 2
TOPCOAT?: After adding stickers, yes
SOURCE: Nail supply store
COMMENTS: I think I liked this mani more before the topcoat. The matte effect is lovely. With topcoat it turned into a color that I'm just so-so about on my nails.

  1. It looks pretty cool with the topcoat. :) But my matte loving heart agrees and likes the matte one better.

  5. Ohh am loving this, both ways! But maybe you can use a matte top coat on top of the shiny one if you liked it better that way?

  6. Bregje makes a good point! Also, I like it slightly more with the gloss topcoat. I think it makes the gold stickers stand out a little more.

  7. I like it both ways too.
    Question regards removing nail stickers, I find it really take ages and a lot of scraping, how do you take off stickers?

  8. Thanks for the comments!

    @pkbmum: You're right, with most stickers, especially really thick ones, removal is a pain. These are a little thinner. I saturate my cut up pieces of cotton wool with remover (acetone with a bit of glycerine and essential oils) when I place it on the nail. That way some of it can get under the sticker to facilitate removal. I also place a piece on every nail first and wait a few minutes for the remover to penetrate before sliding the cotton off my nails.

    For really stubborn stickers I remove all the surrounding nail polish, use tweezers to peel off what remains of the sticker, and finish off the rest of the polish with remover.

  12. Thanks for the reply to my question. I too saturate but it is not acetone remover, perhaps I need to invest in some, do you recommend any?
