Review of Beautifully Disney Nail Wraps

On a recent visit to Walt Disney World I decided it was time to try out the nail appliques by Beautifully Disney.  Currently there are two design choices that retail for $12.95 each.

The first is from the Curiouser and Curiouser collection themed for Alice in Wonderland.  This collection offers bright colors and classic icons from the film.  My personal favorite is the Bread and Butterflies (in green, top row).

The other is a more recent release called Tangled Web, inspired by sinister Disney Villains.  These stickers featuring Maleficent, the Queen, Cruella, and Mother Gothel are in a more simple color palate of black, pink and purple.

Each set comes with 16 nail appliques made of DINP, polyethylene, non-toxic ca/zn stabilizer, processing aid, cphosphite antioxidants, 2-ethylhexy acrylate (that's science talk for thin plastic).

The instructions to apply are very simple.  First be sure to push back your nail cuticles.  This will help the stickers to adhere to your nails better.  Next, line up your nail underneath the clear plastic backer to the appropriate sized sticker.

Peel off the backing and apply to your nail pressing firmly to create a stronger bond. Be careful to not let the sticker touch the skin or cuticles.  Trim with scissors if necessary.

After you have applied the sticker, fold the excess over the nail tip and use a file to remove the excess.

Here is my first attempt!

As you can see I did both hands.  The process was very simple and I decided to use a clear polish on the very tips to ensure water didn't seep under the stickers.

They lasted about a week in good condition.  Towards the end of the week, the ends started to pull back from the tips of my natural nail exposing the underneath.  Nothing major, but enough to make me want to pull the set off.  Which brings me to the removal process.

To remove the stickers, gently peel from any loose corner.  Any leftover sticker residue can be removed with nail polish remover.

My natural nails underneath looked perfect!

A week later I tried out the Tangled Web collection but this time as accent nails and not all ten fingers.

I love black nail polish on short nails.  I used Sally Hansen Diamond Strength no chip nail color in Black Diamonds and only accented two nails with the appliques.

Again, I am very happy with the look and feel of the stickers. 

Overall I would recommend these to anyone interested in trying them.  While I have not used the popular Jamberry product currently flooding the market, I like not having to use a heater to apply the Beautifully Disney appliques.

If you are interested in ordering either of the above sets, just send us an email to shopthemagic@gmail.com.  We'd love to help!
