Maybelline Nail Strips- Are They Worth It?

This is a review on the Maybelline Nail Strips that I purchased with my own money. I have been fascinated with doing my nails a lot lately, and have been purchasing nail polishes, and tools out the behind. I had been noticing that everyone was giving these nail strips a try, and for the most part they said they liked them. Me being me was like I’m going to buy me a pack and test them myself, before I tell all my readers about them.

Here’s the ones I purchased at Walmart for about $5.99Maybelline Nail StripsContents

18 Nail Strips

1 Emery Board

1 Plastic Stick (to make sure the sticker goes on smooth)

 

Pros

Fast design for when you’re heading out, and need your nails done quick

A lot of different designs to choose from

Great for a person who can’t paint their nails worth a lick 🙂

Great for someone who constantly want to change up their nails without buying a ton of nail polishes

 

Cons

The price

18 strips! Not even enough for two applications!

Instructions not as great as they could be

DO NOT LAST LONG FOR NOTHING!

 

Bottom Line

I will not be spending my hard-earned money on these strips again. In my book for as much as they charge for these things I should had got 20 strips, not 18. The other thing that upset me is that they don’t say not to apply to nails if you have on a base coat. If you do be prepared for your strips to not lay correct, and they will start to peel up almost immediately. I’m lucky that I noticed this when I did my first nail, and was apprehensive on taking my base coat off. Sucking my teeth I went ahead and applied them to my now naked nails. The sizes they give you do not match with the correct finger you would think it would, so be prepared to match up strips by turning them upside down to actually cover a whole nail. Once I got that together I was happy with my results.

These strips lasted a total of three days before the paint on the strips started coming off, then they started peeling around the edges. Hmm. I’m a mom so I have to do odd jobs around the house, and deal with two hyper toddlers, did they not think that perhaps more moms would be buying these fast manicure fixes? Um No! Couldn’t had. I’m sure placing my hand in water is what helped with the peeling also, but who doesn’t put their hand in water almost everyday? No, this product did not make it onto my summer must haves list. Maybe you all should give it a try and tell me how they worked for you, I’d love to hear.
