Kristin’s ‘QUICK TAKE’:

I would have to say the thing I like most about the nail strips is that you can get nail designs that you could never do yourself and would take hours for a professional to do (if you can even find someone with that talent)!  It’s so easy to do once you get the hang of it and saves a ton of money!  I recently learned you can use each strip twice and do your toes too!  I get compliments like mad on Checkin’ It Twice and I’d have to say it’s my favorite because a) I love houndstooth patterned anything and b) I saw Gwen Stefani wearing it on her nails!  See pictures of Checkin’ It Twice below.

So all in all it’s a great and easy way to get an expensive nail design/pedicure and get at least a little bit of Gwen Stefani’s coolness!

Kristin’s Tips:

Only use the light pink smoother part of the nail file it comes with and gently file to get the excess strip off to keep it intact and then re-use on your toes!  It’s kind of a pain to take off so use nail polish remover pot that will allow you to soak each finger in the remover first since you are taking off polish and glues at the same time.  Takes a little longer than regular nail polish but it’s worth it!  Also, if put a coat of clear nail polish on when you’re done to make it last even longer!
