I Can't Paint My Own Nails

It's true.

I can't.

I'm pretty sure I have an undiagnosed fine motor issue.  It would explain why I always sucked at art, why I currently have craft anxiety, and why I can't paint my own nails.

I mean, I'm thirty years old.  I should be able to cut in a straight line, draw simple items, or slap a little nail polish on for that matter.  Can't do it.  Any of it.

Which is why I was thrilled when OMG Nail Strips contacted me and asked me to try their line of nail polish strips and nail foils.  Finally do-it-yourself nails for the artistically challenged.

Nail Polish Strips in "Cheetah."

I'm obsessed with these nail polish strips.  I tried cheetah and it looks adorable, even on my little nubs. Applying these babies couldn't be any easier.  If you can peel and stick a sticker than you can do this.  Peel, stick, push down along the end of your nail and rip off the excess.  The end.  It took me less than five minutes to do this people:

I love leopard.
I guess what they say is true:
"You can take the girl out of Jersey, but you can't take the Jersey out of the girl."
This is my attempt at the "Blogger Nail Polish Pose"
I look part orangutan don't I?

Now the nail foils need to actually be cut, so while they looked cute, I (being the spaz that I am) had a hard time cutting them to fit.  Granted I can't really cut anything so I'm not blaming the product.  I'm pretty sure if you have 3rd grade level artistic capabilities and reasonable intelligence, you should be able to apply these no problem.

Me and scissors just don't mix.
And this photo is upside down.
Clearly me and cameras don't mix either. 
End Result:  cute and festive (Christmas Lights)
And the gorilla hand pose returns...

So what have we learned today?

Even I can apply OMG Nail Strips Nail Polish strips, and I'm sure 99% of you can apply the foils.  These are a great value at  $4.29 - way cheaper than you can get comparable products at the drug store and boatloads cheaper than the nail salon.  Did I mention that they offer free shipping on all orders over $20?   They do.

For value, easy application, and an adorable end result,  I give OMG Nail Strips two gorilla orangutan thumbs up.
