ArtClub Glam Nails Review... FAIL

I'm honestly embarrassed to even post this.

This was my first attempt at "nail stickers". The ones from Sally Hansen and Sephora were pricey, so I always passed. While China Glaze hauling at Sally Beauty I came across ArtClub Glam Full-Fashion Nails in an Instant. First of all... in an instant my fanny. It took longer to get these things on and file them down then it does to actually paint my nails up with 3 coats.

It just looks a hot mess. It's not sticking well at ALL. I actually didn't think it was TOO bad until I saw the photos. EEK. It WAS my first time with ArtClub Glam Nails... but the fact that they're not even laying on my nail bed doesn't bode well for the longevity of this product.

This product doesn't come with any tools like the Sally Hansen have, which is probably why they were so cheap. I do NOT recommend this product at all. If you want to do it, do it right and get the ones from Sephora or Sally Hansen. I will definitely go for the SH when I need them for a special occasion, because I think the concept is really cool.

I bought these awhile ago, I believe the retail was $4.99. Unless you're REALLY good at applying these, I would pass. It's more trouble than it's worth.

i dont know if its just me but i actually dont see anything about it! no pealing or anything. i do like the pattern though. but thanks for the heads up!

If you enlarge the pic by clicking on it you might be able to see it better. Maybe I just zero in on it because I know where the imperfections are lol

I'm excited to try other brands versions of this product, though!

I was not a fan of these either, I much prefer other brands version of this product. Like you, I couldn't get them to stick or curve with my nails. It was awful. And they smelled funny lol.

I like em! But it would drive me crazy if it was pealing right away!!

I tried those for about two seconds and tossed them, the sally's are definately the best for the money, especially if you hit Walgreens. I've gotten them twice there on a BOGO deal.

Jen - it makes me feel better that it didn't work out for you either. They made me feel inadequate lol

Kat - I literally submitted this post, sat down to watch some DVR and peeled them all off. I couldn't take it anymore! LOL

Emily - I will check that out! I have a coupon too so hopefully I can hit for both at the same time lol
