A while ago we got word that a Finnish company started making custom nail vinyls. I of course had to try out their online "nail studio", where you can adjust backdrop color and add elements, such as images from your own hard drive, to make my own design. Tuomas at Inni kindly sent me my own design for review.
I made this pretty design with the dancing day of the dead like image I once found somewhere on the dear ol' 'net.
This is what the online studio looks like:
As you can see, if my nails had been longer, I would have had more of the french like style the full vinyl stickers opted for, but it is what it is, and this way the design covered my entire nails instead.
The vinyl stickers were easy to apply, as usual with the sometimes slight difficulty of filing them off neatly, but personally I solved this by leaving a tiny bit of an edge and wrap my tips with it, then filing the edges off. Unfortunately, my nails are rather curved, and no matter how I stretch (but gently to not stretch the image out of proportions), I always end up with the little pockets along the cuticles. For anyone with a less curved nail, these probably work out just fine.
There are plenty of nice designs made by previous guests, if you don't feel like making your own, and they can be yours for $8.90 at Innis site!
