Stick-On Star Nails

starnails3This post has been slightly delayed because I was SO TIRED after working all last weekend at a hair and beauty trade exhibition. Luckily, as well as being a journalist extraordinaire, I had 20 minutes to run round and buy a few beauty bits at discount prices. This included these dinky little rainbow-coloured stars, and some nail glue to fix them on.

For the base coat I used Models Own Mellow Yellow, which I left to dry before painting on the glue and applying the stars randomly with tweezers. It’s quite fiddley because everything ends up getting stuck together – just like when you’re trying to fix something with super glue and end up getting your fingers stuck to the tube/table/your face. However the benefit of this ultra-stickiness is that the stars stay in place really well – I thought they might all get knocked off quickly but they were fine.

When it came to removal, however, things were TOUGH. That glue is like the mother of all top coats and getting through it is an almighty challenge. In future I would use the old PVA as a base coat blogger trick to help me out!
