I’ve never tried nail-polish strips before. Have you? What has been your experience with them? Do they last as long as a regular manicure? I’m curious like a cat!
All these questions were sparked because of the press release that PR sent me about the new OPI Pure Lacquer Nail Apps. They’re pre-cut nail strips made of actual polish. You can put them on and not have to wait for your nails to dry.
I’m not sure if I’ll ever try nail-polish strips because I enjoy actually painting my nails. And if I want nail art, I tend to freehand or stamp it myself. That being said, it’s great for those who aren’t so polish obsessed like I am or who don’t have an arsenal of nail-art products. Plus this seems like a fun way to test-drive an intricate design.
Official press release sent to me by PR:
Precut Designs Offer Easy, Instant Nail Art
OPI Announces NEW! Pure Lacquer Nail Apps
May 2012 – OPI launches Pure Lacquer Nail Apps for instantaneous manicures and pedicures created using precut nail strips made of 100% real nail lacquer – providing a high-gloss finish, long-lasting wear and zero dry time. Offered in both cream and shimmer finishes, Nail Apps are available in 14 different styles – ranging in design from edgy snake print and fishnet to feminine gold lace and floral.
“Nail art has become increasingly popular, with both consumers and trained professionals,” says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director.
“Pure Lacquer Nail Apps provide the perfect way to get a one-of-a-kind look that simply cannot be replicated by hand. Each nail strip is made of 100% real nail lacquer for a flawless final look with easy application.”
Combining base and color in one convenient product, Nail Apps adhere to nails in seconds and can be stretched for a perfect fit. Each pack contains 16 strips to ensure perfect sizing for all finger and toe nails. For best results, this product should not be finished with top coat. Simply remove with an acetone polish remover like OPI Expert Touch Lacquer Remover before trying a new design.
“To make Nail Apps last even longer, upgrade your service by having your manicurist cure the nail strips with a GelColor Top Coat. With this addition, Nail Apps will last up to two weeks,” explains Weiss-Fischmann. “If you chose at-home application, place each Nail App carefully, trimming where necessary. Top coat is not recommended. Within minutes, your nails will be uniquely designed like never before!”
Pure Lacquer Nail Apps will be available this month at Professional Salons and Spas for the suggested retail price of $14.95.
