I'll try anything once (or in some cases, once in a while after it's been long enough to forget why I've only done something once before) and boy does putting nail wraps on my nails fall into this category of things that happen on a very rare occasion.  After milling around the Urban Outfitters next door after work waiting on a ride, I perused the sale items, one of them being these gemstone all-over print nailwraps by NPW.  They were originally $6 to which I'd pass up without a second thought but for $1.99 my temptations and desires blocked out past memories of the wars spent with nailwraps prior and I ended up at the checkout, nailwraps in hand.

As with anything, I put off applying these things for a matter of weeks (probably as my terror finally set in).  Finally mustering up the energy and having a day off I took what felt like hours and put them on.  For me, I have small thin fingers and nails.  These wraps are ridiculously wide for my nails, the smallest size fitting my middle fingers the closest.  So for me, I had to cut up most of the pieces and shape them a bit...I'm sure you might have to do the same.  This lead to a lot of imperfections but honestly no one better be eyeballing my hands close enough to notice the flaws!  As suggested putting a base coat on prior is a good idea to smooth out the wraps and give them a little something-something to stick to...and rub with quite a bit of pressure once you get them placed right.   Make sure to file the ends of the wraps off really well too and apply a topcoat or two.  I've had mine on almost three days now and they look untouched, so all that trouble may be somewhat worth it. But won't be seeing a post on nail wraps from me for at least another year.
