Sephora by OPI Nail Wraps

To wear or not to wear... Nail sheets with pritns on them! Would your claws approve? Sephora and OPI are hoping you say YES, as their collaboration has just launched CHIC, an innovative line, which creates customized nails, featuring a myriad of patterns and prints including anchor, stars, checkers, tiger, fishnet, chrome lace, black & gold geometric, or skulls.

My friend Stacey Bendet of Alice + Olivia was sporting some fierce design on her nails. She said they were some new form of manicure - not polish - but a wrap that sticks to the nail. Interest piqued, I decided to investigate online.  That's when I stumbled across Chic Print for Nails.

Personally, I'm having a flashback: colored Lee Press-On Nails. Oy.

How to use:

"One set of Chic Print for Nails contains 16 nail patches of varying widths, for a one-time application to fingers or toes. The nail patch is a solid-film material with an adhesive back that is heat activated. Applying heat creates conformability, allowing the patch to fit over the compound curves of your nails and seal onto the nail bed. The patent-pending material removes easily with heat."

As trends go, this is yet another way to accessorize the claws. But I like it... it's got pizazz. And if their number of facebook friends means anything (1,234), these nails are the new "it" manicure must-have!

PRICE TAG: $15.00 for a set.

Has anyone tried them? Do they work?

They do work! But you must use a firm file for the ends. (glass works best). They last for a long time and they look just as flashy on the nail as they do in the package. great for vacation or any event!
