My DIY trick is to use the paper enforcers (those white circular stickers for 3 ring binder paper). They come in cheap packs with a bunch and they work the same way. Also, there is less pressure to get them to stick the first time because when you mess up you just grab a new sticker!
I love these stencils. You can do so many hot nail looks with them and the price is not bad! I will definitely buy them again, I love the look. You could use hole protectors for the same thing but these are perfect.
Difficult to use!
Truthfully, I love the idea of these, but I found them tricky. There didn't seem to be a perfect time to pull them off--it always seemed too early or too late, meaning the wet polish smeared or it was dry enough that the rings pulled at it, making it chip or stretch. It's a bummer, because it could be so great if they were more (less?!) sticky.
These took so much effort to stick to my nails, and would not deliver the clean line I wanted. Will not purchase again.
Love these stencils!
I'm not a fan of paying to get my nails done, and I love that these stencils are a simple way to jazz up my manicure without a whole lot of effort.
My one complaint was that the adhesive on the sticker peeled off the base coat on a couple of my nails, but I was able to quickly and easily re-apply that.
I like that they come in a variety of different sizes so you can mix and match depending on your nail size and shape.
