Giveaway: Sephora by OPI Chic Prints for Nails!


This week I’ve had the worst cravings for makeup, nail polish, and all things beauty. That’s a lot considering I don’t normally wear makeup and my signature staple look is a clean face with a subtle red lip. I visited Sephora last weekend and have since returned a good 3 to 4 times. What can I say, I’m hooked. The newest item to hit the sales floor is the Sephora by OPI Chic Prints for Nails design appliques.

Nail Design for Dummies

When it comes to painting my nails often my hand is shakey, unsteady and the nervousness usually gets the best of me. Instead, I’d rather spend the time being serviced at a spa. The 1-2-3 step process took a total of 20 minutes and was a cinch.Warm, smooth, file and go!

The process: Start with bare nails. Clean with rubbing alcohol to remove oils. Choose the best size for each nail. If strip is too wide trim with scissors. Rub the strip to warm. Peel off strip and apply to nail with rounded end close to the cuticle. Rub strip over nail starting from the center. Press material over edge and use and ultra fine crystal file to file off excess. File in vertical downward motion. Rub strip again to ensure adhesion and to remove any bubbles.


The downside?

While my new nail designs succeded in tricking the eye to appear to be the expensive yet coveted Minx, the style is only temporary lasting 1 to 2 days. Great for a night out and if you generally love flicking your wrist at people just to say you’d have to kill them before you’ll ever reveal the secret.


I love my Chic Prints and would definitely try it again. Each packet comes with 16 precut strips for $15 at Sephora. As a gift to my readers and just so you can see for yourself why I love them so much, I’ll provide 3 readers with their own trial pair.

Rules– Tell me your favorite summer nail color in the comments, or on the wall of the La:Dolce:Vita Fashion Fix Facebook page. Must be a U.S. Resident. Contest ends next Friday June, 11th at 6:00 PM.
