Hedy's Body Shop - Gel Nail Art

While browsing in Rite-Aid the other day,
I came across these
Bejeweled gel nail art stickers, by Hedy's Body Shop.





Never seeing anything quite like it before, I decided to pick 
a package up and give them a go.


The aren't decals, or stickers in the basic sense, 
but rather a thick gel with the image embedded in it. 



Each one is has a basic oval shade, with sizes ranging
from small to large to fit every nail.

I really thought they might be too thick, but once apply to the nails,
they lay down nice and smooth. 

I did cut a few of them down since I decided to 
caddy-corner them on my existing mani.
The adhesive is very strong and no top coat is needed.


My only gripe, 
though I know the camera isn't picking it up, 
is the have a slight beige tint to them, 
so if you are applying them on certain colors, 
you may be able to see the subtle difference in color.
I've had them on for a couple of days now and they haven't
shifted or lifted in any way.
I'd say these are pretty cute when you are wanting a
quick little perk to your mani.
They had a total of 4 designs available
and retail for $ 2.99 per pack.

I saw these yesterday too but I didn't buy them 'cause I thought they wouldn't stick well on the nail, it gave me the impression that they would start peeling from the sides o_O

I bought all the ones with the skull & crossbones(like the ones you show) at my Rite-Aide but haven't tried them yet. Thank you for sharing. I think they had some with stars & hearts that glow in the dark too.
