Nothing says “carefree” to me like a little bit of vanity. And after this hard week at work, I simply *need* my go-to manicure alternative. Enjoy!
We’ll see more of nail art alternatives (a new tag!) and more awesomeness here in August, but these sweet stickers come first – they have earned a place in my heart. And so the carefree weekly photo challenge post came in handy!
As usual, a warning: anything that sticks to the skin, like plasters or beauty patches (e.g. undereye patches, blemish cover-ups etc.) can cause allergies, so be careful. It’s FDA-approved and dermatologically tested. I must say I’m prone to allergies myself but since I don’t overdo these stickers, I haven’t experienced any problems yet.
Now let’s have a closer look!
You might have noticed that I haven’t posted anything since Sunday: I’ve had one hell of a week. It was all good, just immensely much to do.
So what better time than a Friday night to get out some glitter, right?
The sticker set you see here is called “Hand Kit”. It’s from the JARDIN DU NIL collection and comes in black, nude, silver or gold, consisting of four finger stickers and one for the back of the hand. I’m yet to try the crystal bra (gulp, it’s a bit pricey for a glittery sticker, non?) yet I have a couple more “skin jewels”, mostly black. Some of them have Swarovski rhinestones added to the glitter; one has a large emerald green cabochon – just the right thing to replace a glorious necklace I suppose.
Now I’ll let the carefree images speak for themself; instructions follow in the end:
The trickiest parts are peeling the sticker from its supporting paper (the sticker is very thin and soft, and if you don’t watch closely, it’s likely to start sticking to anything next to it… it’s very clingy ;)) AND placing it on your skin. But it’s no rocket science either!
