Chocolate Vanity Nail Stickers

     Hey there ladies! Today I will be sharing a first with you: my first time using nail polish stickers. Actually, this was my first time since my first time. You see, the first time I got nail polish stickers I had acrylic nails and the sticker wouldn't adhere correctly, plus I had no idea what the hell I was doing so it got pretty ugly. After that I shied away from using them and stuck to just regular ol' nail polish.
     Not too far back I won a giveaway and a company called Chocolate Vanity provided some of the prizes. Originally, I was only supposed to get two stamping plates, but these guys loaded up the package and surprised me with a bunch of nail polish stickers and decals and all sorts of goodies. I figured it was about time to get past my bad experience with nail polish strips and test these bad boys out. 

     I had a couple bad breaks on my right hand so I knew I wouldn't be photographing it, so that's where I started applying these stickers. I didn't use a base coat because the directions advised to use a clean nail, I'm not sure if that's really how you should do it since I'm a complete idiot when it comes to these. The first nail came out pretty atrocious, I will not lie to you. But I got a sort of technique down by the time I got to my left hand. 

     Not too shabby, eh? If my nails were longer this would be way cooler design-wise. The adhesive on the bottom of the strip was sticky but not too sticky where you couldn't re-position the sticker.

     I got a little aggravated because the strips were a little too wide for a few of my nails but as these are nail polish strips, that issue was easily fixed with a little acetone and a clean up brush. 

     Overall, these things were pretty neat. As you can see, even a novice like me could apply them and they didn't look half bad. I really have no complaints except for the fact that there was so much yellow in the design (really not a complaint, I just hate yellow lol). What did you guys think of these? Have you tried any of Chocolate Vanity's products, if so what did you think of them?
