For this mani, I used the Envy Wraps Bling in Nail Armour for a fun 3D "mirror ball" effect:
I've gotten so many compliments on my nails and I seriously can't stop staring at them - they're so fun!
Since this was my first time using nail wraps I was a little worried about how the application would turn out, but it really is quite simple. First, you apply a base coat and let it dry. Then you pick whichever size stickers match your nails and stick them on firmly. The instructions say to file down the edges, but I found it easier to first cut off most of the overhanging sticker so that there was less to file. Once that was all done, I used a blowdryer on each nail for about ten seconds since the heat is supposed to help with adhesion before setting it all with a top coat.
Because the nail wraps are texturized, filing the edges of my nails was a bit tricky and I wasn't able to get them completely even. Probably due to this shoddy filing job, my nails started to show tip wear by day 3 but it wasn't actually that noticeable unless you looked super close due to the glistening effect of the wraps. I also liked that there was no drying time (other than the clear top coat) so your mani is good to go almost immediately! However, application is still time-consuming with all the trimming and filing.
In addition to the Envy Wraps Bling line, Elegant Touch also has a regular Envy Wraps line. The Envy Wraps Bling feature unique 3D designs like the ones I've posted here (I also really like these ones), while the Envy Wraps come in mirrored animal prints.
Envy Wraps in Silver Bengal Metallic and Envy Wraps Bling in Nail Armour
Interested UK readers should be able to find these products fairly easily, and US readers can now find Elegant Touch at Ulta stores and Ulta.com. Hopefully they will come to Canada next, as I think they're a more unique alternative to the Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips.
