Weird Wednesdays ~ Nail Wrap Fail

Hello Dahlings!
So with this crazy family filled week I thought doing some nail wraps would be good for a quick mani change & with all da cute Halloween sets available,
da biggest prob should have been picking which one I wanted to wear.
I should have known it wouldn't be that easy. LOL
 Da line up: L.A. Colors Energy Source 656 & Sinful Colors Glow In The Dark
 Plus these cute nail wraps from Kiss! Each pack comes with 28 wraps in diff sizes...that's enuf for a mani/pedi or 2 manis with leftovers for accent nails for only $7. (I was just in Walgreen's today & da Halloween wraps are now 25% off!)
 This is 2 coats of Energy Source. This is a pretty decent white polish for only $1.99 (or $1 if you have L.A. Colors at your local Dollar Tree!) & it stamps too.
Please pardon my fried cuticles! I love October for da cooler weather & Halloween fun, but my nails & skin hate the weather change. Last year I got lucky & survived October without any breaks. Not this year. Blerg. My nails have finally grown out from a pinkie nubbin on my left hand  (I trimmed them all back until da shorty grew out) & now I have a patched peelie chunk on da corner of my left thumb & a patched diagonal crack on my right ring. I miss my long nails & will now have to wait even longer to get them back. Waaaa!!!!
 OK, enuf whinging. LOL After I applied da Energy Source I added a coat of da Sinful Colors GITD, then da wraps. So far so good...until I added a coat of Seche Vite! I had a few lil wrinkles around da edges of da wraps, but no big deal. My beloved SV caused those lil wrinkles to become worse & gave da whole mani an antiqued crinkle look that wasn't noticeable from a distance but just felt wrong to da touch. Not what I wanted!
At least the GITD under the see thru cats & stars on da wraps worked. 
Note to self: next time, no top coat!
I know that's your hand under there Paw & I will chomp it!

  1. I think we are brainwashed by SV.........not giving it up though

    1. Not brainwashed, just devoted! LOL I've tried other top coats & kept coming back to SV cuz I usually like how it performs.

  2. Those wraps are completely adorable! I need to find myself some. :)

    1. IKR? I got mine at Walgreens, but any store that carries Kiss nail art supplies would be worth checking. While you're at Walgreens, you can pick up the Sinful Colors was the best of the one's I tested.

  3. Very cute!!! I think its just in the quick dry part of the top coat that does that to wraps and foils. It you were to use a basic clear polish or non quick dry I think you'd see less to no problems.

    1. Alas, I have a wait problem. LOL Tho' I will keep your tip in mind next time I wrap my nails. Thanks! <3
