Nail decals are becoming more and more popular. In fact, there are companies that are devoted to this trend and you can even have parties in your home to sell the product. While there are a number of benefits to nail decals, there are also a few disadvantages. Is this the right beauty option for you? Let's look at the pros and cons of nail decals.
Variety of Cute Styles
One of the best things about nail decals is the variety of styles to choose from. Whether you want a solid color or want a cute design that you could never create on your own, you'll find something to jazz up your nails. Because I've always been a bit shaky, I love this option. It allows me to have cute nails without all the mess.
Nail decals won't have every design you can think of. If you want something unique, chances are you'll have to create the design yourself. If you're good at painting your nails, you can create some truly fantastic looks.
Easier to Apply
Think of nail decals as stickers. You don't have to worry about getting nail polish everywhere, you just peel and stick. Some brands do require the use of clear nail polish on top, but at least you're saving time.
While nail decals are easier, they aren't foolproof. This means that you may end up with a decal that is wrinkled or crooked, this is especially true when applying decals that have designs. All you can do is read the instructions and hope for the best, but practice does make perfect.
The absolute best thing about nail decals is that they are safer to use than nail polish. You don't have to worry about toxins leaking into your nails. Even those made with real nail polish put a coating between you nail and the polish. This alone makes nail decals the best choice for decorating your nails.
Of course, you will pay for these benefits. Nail decals can cost a lot more than nail polish. Instead of paying around $2-3 for several applications, you're paying the same price for one.
While you may be paying more, nail decals will last longer. In fact, some brands look great for several days. When's the last time you applied a nail polish that lasted that long without chipping?
Nails decals do have a few disadvantages, but they are still the best option for accessorizing your nails.
