This is day 7. You can see the little flaw there on my pointer finger, but overall, these nail decal things are outsatnding. I have worked them hard all week and only on the 7th day did they show any signs of wear. I'm on day 10 now and they look not so perfect, but I think the pattern hides a lot. If they were a solid color they'd look much worse. I ordered mine from Mod Cloth, they are made by Nail Fraud.
This pack comes wth 20 stickers so I can get 2 applications with a set. And, if I am clever with the scissors, I can fit my girl's nails in there, too, becasue the stickers are so long. They take a while to fit, trim, and put on, but it was so great to not have any drying time or creepy smell. I am sold on these. This set is going on for the July 4th weekend.
*Update. The removal is a bit, sticky (ha!) it takes some elbow greasy to get off the glue under the pattern. Afterwards my nails were really dry, so I rubbed oil on them and am giving them a good 4 days to air out. I think these are still excellent, but wouldn't have them on all the time.
Unrelated and even more exciting than striped nails:
The new Gillian Welch is out and I bought and love it. Here's a great interview with Gillian Welch and David Rawlings over at American Songwriter, and here they are on Conan (from last night) and I can't wait to see them in Portland in 2 weeks.
