Manicure Monday - Formula X Nail Wraps with Accent Nails

Okay, you know it's been a crazy Monday when I am writing my Manicure Monday post this late and I'm using nail wraps (this is why I have a big supply!). So, sorry it has been a crazy day. 

Now to me, the best part of nail wraps is that it looks like I spent a lot of time on my nails when I don't have any time to spare! Today I am trying Formula X nail wraps with an accent nail!

Here are the products I used for this week's Manicure:

  • OPI Top Coat
  • Formula X Nail Cleanser and Base Coat
  • Ciate #43 apple & custard
  • Formula X Real Nail Lacquer Appliques
  • nail file


I am looking forward to trying these wraps - there are 2 things I really like about these wraps: 
  • My favorite thing is that they are removable with nail polish (honestly, the best quality a nail wrap can have so it doesn't damage your nail during removal!)
  • They are double ended and each end is a different size (this means you have a better chance of having a great fit on your nails!)

Here are the steps I followed for this week's Manicure:
1. Nail cleanser 
2. Remove clear cover of nail wrap:

3. Then remove the wrap from the backing by lifting the silver piece:

4. Place wrap on nail:

5. Form the wrap on nail, using fingers to smooth out any bumps and make sure it is tucked nicely in to the sides of your nail.

6. Fold remainder over the top of nail:

7. Use a nail file to file off excess wrap

8. Complete on as many nails as you wish (I did 3, so I could have 2 accent nails)

9. Accent nails: Base coat and 2 coats of polish 

10. Let dry and Top Coat (nail wraps don't usually need top coat, but I put a thin layer on all mine this week!)

Here is my final result:

I used a little green since we are close to St. Patrick's Day and I think it turned out to look really great with this pattern! 

Happy Manicure Monday!!
