NPW Nail Art Decorations

August 4, 2014

I bought two sets of NPW Nail Art Decorations last year from Topshop in their Christmas sale for £1 and only just found them last week. I thought I would give them a go and do a little review. The two packs I bought were the “Assorted” collection (Bows, Hearts, Stars and Cupcakes) and “Creatures” (Cats, Birds, Ladybirds and Butterflies).

First of all, I emptied them all into a little box and painted my nails with Tanya Burr’s Little Duck. The instructions told me to put a blob of clear coat on my nail and place the decoration onto my nail. These decorations were quite small, so I used some tweezers to help me out. They really needed pressing down on to the nail as they just didn’t want to stick down. After all the decorations were in place, I applied a top coat which did make them more secure on my nails.

I really think these decorations could be a great product but they are just too thick and bulky to be put on the nails. As you can see I put several on one nail and it just didn’t look right so I placed the bows on my other hand and they looked a lot better. I noticed that the brand does Nail Stickers which I presume would be a lot better than these and maybe easier to apply.

These weren’t the best product I’ve tried out but not terrible for only £1. I wouldn’t mind using them again to do the bows on the tips again as they looked quite pretty. The other thing was they didn’t last longer than 24 hours. So they’d only be good if you were wanting something short term. Let me know if you’ve tried this product or the stickers (which I’m curious to try out to see the difference!)

  3. I agree, I think stickers would be better, but I do think the bows are very pretty.
