Light up Nails..
I was so looking forward to doing this review on the OMG LED Nail Strips. Special little chips that you apply to your nails, that light up by using the NYC setting on an Android phone. I was sent one for use with normal nail polish, and one for gel or acrylic nails.
Once you have the NYC setting turned on, and you hold the chip on the back of your phone, the tiny little light flashes.
So you can imagine how awesome this would look on nails!!
I was also going to use the pink rose sticker, and have the light shine through the centre. I painted my ring finger with Nails Inc. New York Noir, and the rest in Avon Revel Rose.
This is where the fun started! I carefully pealed the led chip off the plastic backing and applied to my ring finger as per the instructions on the packet. I held my finger on the back of my phone and....nothing. I was dubious, I mean how will the NFC beam penitrate through my finger. So I carefully took off my nail and reapplied the other way round. Still nothing! The video I found by Robin Moses on youtube, she applied the led light to a false nail. By this time, even though I had removed it from my nail for a second time, the sticky was gone and I was unable to try on a false nail.
The other floral stickers however are really pretty, so I carried on and did the mani I was planning with the light.
So pretty and such a shame I was unable to get the led light to work. Sadly I can't try again as I only had 1 to try with. But still happy with this finished manicure.
Have you heard or tried these OMG strips yourself? I'd love to know how you got on, and if you managed to get it to work on natural nails.
Till next time, stay safe and much love...
