Nail Art // Gold Accented Nails with Julep Golden Angle Nail Wraps
These days when I have free time and I'm at home I always toss up in my head "Should I play Sims 4, or should I write blog posts?" And man, it's hard to choose sometimes. My compromise? I often write my blog posts while watching Let's Play videos of Sims 4 on youtube... Haha. Does anyone else still have an unhealthy obsession with the Sims franchise?! The games are just so addictive!
Anyway, from everything I've said so far you would think these nails have something to do with The Sims, but... They don't, at all. Haha. I just wanted to let you know how I felt when I sat down to write this post. :) So let's get into the info and pics about this look!
These Golden Angle Nail Wraps have been sitting in my drawer for over a year (I originally picked them up in my January 2016 box) so I finally decided to sit down and use them.
So I started out with a base of OPI Eurso Euro and then I sponged on a rough gradient with OPI Cosmo With a Twist and OPI Give Me Space. After applying my gold decals I sealed the whole thing with a layer of top coat, and then added a few metal studs for extra visual interest.
I'm always skeptical of full nail wraps but I have to say I was super impressed with these! They're very malleable and easy to apply, and the shapes actually fit my nails really well! For variety I put full cover wraps on most of my nails, and then cut some pieces up to make golden accents on my other nails. Both the ones applied to the full nail and the ones applied to part of the nail applied really easily. :)
I have a few wraps left and now that I've used them once I can say I will definitely be pulling them out to use up the rest at a later date. I was super impressed with them! So much that it's making me wonder if it might be worth it to try out some of the other Julep nail stickers and wraps that I have in my collection. I mean, I would have at some point anyway. But now I might do so sooner rather that later.. Hmm...
Have you tried nail wraps like these from Julep before? If so, what did you think of them?
