Every now and then, I like to dabble in nail wraps, mainly because I'm rubbish at doing any kind of nail art myself and wraps are just so much easier and less time consuming to apply.
I've tested out a bunch of different nail wrap brands since this trend came onto the market some years ago, and I've found that most of them are relatively the same. The main variations seem to be in the designs of the actual wraps, price points and how long they stay on the nails for.
That said, when I was recently introduced to DinkiBelle, the one main thing that I noticed was that their nail wraps are 5-free (no formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, toluene, camphor or formaldehyde resin). The only other nail wrap brand I can think of that are also 5-free are Jamberry, but they're almost double the price, so these are a much more budget friendly alternative to try instead.
DinkiBelle currently have 20 different designs available and I chose to review 'Spring Blossom' - a cute cherry blossom print on a turquoise base which is definitely helping to get me into the Spring mood. It's one of those prints that you catch yourself looking at and admiring, plus I've already had some compliments from friends and family asking where they are from.
Applying the nail wraps was super easy (just find the right size for each nail, peel, stick on and file off any excess) and so far I've had these on for 8 days with only minor tip wear showing up. I'm not sure that they would last for 14 days but they're hardy enough to stay put for at least a week in my opinion. A quick and easy way to have some nail art fun without the hassle!
