DIY Chic Nail Prints
Sephora by OPI has created pre-cut design strips for your nails. It's a take on minx nails. These strips are said to last up to two weeks. Each of these packs come with 16 pre cut strips and will cost you $15. Sally Hansen also has their own pre-cut design strips called Salon Effects.
On Friday I bought both Sephora by OPI and Sally Hansen. I decided to give Sephora the test drive first.
Things that you will need:
Nail polish remover, nail filer, and nail clippers (I think nail clippers were easier to use then scissors to cut the strips)
Make sure to file your nails and to remove all nail polish and residue from your nails with nail polish remover.
Rub each strip and then peel to fit onto your nails. Then use the nail filer to file away the access strip.
The finished product:
Okay well they def. aren't perfect but this was attempt number one.
I'm not sure how these last for 2 weeks, it feels sort of weird at first sort of like if you have tape stuck to your nail. Anyway, I think the Sally Hensen ones might fit better on my nails since they have more of a bottom piece then the Sephora ones. We'll see and I will post the Sally Hensen ones as well.

Would you guys try doing the pre-cut strips yourself?
