If you read THIS post of mine in my fashion & beauty blog, you would know that I am super lousy with nail polishes. I love seeing cute and pretty nail polish designs but I hate applying it myself. That's why I rarely wear nail polishes, that's because I am very sloppy when it comes to applying nail polish especially on my own nails. Yep, I am one of those girl who can't do her own nails (>__<).
But luckily, help is on the way! With this amazing tools from CreaNails I can finally learn to apply nail polish on my own nails the right way ;p Well, at least these helps a lot in minimizing damages a.k.a nail polish spilling all around my nail bed.
CreaNails is brought to you by the people who created CreaClip, another amazing tool that has helped me a lot in trimming and cutting my own hair. You could read my review about the CreaClip HERE, I still used that tool until now and am really satisfied with it. So when they created another amazing concept called CreaNails I got excited and curious to try that one too. The people behind the CreaProducts are amazing and I always think of them as some kind of geniuses, because they create simple tools that actually really worked and help a lot.
The CreaNails are the latest in nail polish application. It is meant to make applying nail polishes more easy and neat without all the mess. It's also really perfect for the newbies or the sloppy like yours truly here ;p
The CreaNails are a tool to help create professional-looking nail polishes on your nails. They are actually a type of nail guides that would help you when you apply nail polishes.
There are two types of them which are the original CreaNails and the CreaNails for Kids. Now let's talk about the original CreaNails first (pictured above). Each box of CreaNails came with a set of 26 pieces of nail stencils or nail guides as I like to call it, in 10 different sizes so you could choose one that would suit the size of each of your fingers.
It also came with a bonus of 32 French Strips that would help you out in doing a french nail application (you know the clear glossy nail with a white tip? that's called french nails / french tip). Isn't that kinda awesome? I love useful extras!
The left one is the pink nail stencils/guides,
and the white one on the right top is the French Strips for french nails application.
According to the info provided, the nail stencils would fit comfortably on your finger and act as a guide to allow you to apply nail polish with ease, even with your left hand! No more unwanted nail polish, now you can get professional nail polish in just minutes.
Application is easy and you just have to find which ones from the nail stencil options that are a match for your nails and stick with those sizes. The nail stencils are reusable too so you can keep reusing it over and over again, just clean it off if it gets too many nail polish spills in it. It's easy to clean too.
Once you found the right stencil size for each of your nails then you slip it on your nails before applying nail polishes. I love that the material of the stencil is like a soft plastic (it's made of Polypropylene) with a comfortable curved shape, it didn't hurt my finger and it felt quite comfy on my finger too.
After you wear all the nail stencils then it's time to apply your nail polish. The stencils act as a guide line as well as a barrier to prevent spills on other areas of your finger, so the nail polish would just be on your nails instead of everywhere else ;p
This really save time and money because if you can master this at home then you wouldn't need to go to the nail salon anymore. I also love the fact that it makes applying nail polish easier and most of the time I only need to apply my nail polish one time without having to re-done it again because it already look very neat ;)
Here's a photo of how you use the CreaNails. Please pardon my still messy nail polish application. You could see that I am very sloppy and thanks to this CreaNails the sloppiness did not transferred to the skin around my finger ;P
After you do all of your nails, wait for a little bit until the nail polish totally dries before you took off the CreaNails stencils.
Make sure you try different sizes to really find the perfect size because you don't want it too tight that makes it feel uncomfortable on your finger, but you also don't want it to be loose because if it's still loose then the nail polish can still seeps in and transfer to the skin underneath.
Now while we waited for my nail polishes to dry let's see the CreaNails Kids. The CreaNails for Kids is basically the same as the original CreaNails above. The difference is in the sizes of the nail stencils that are of course smaller than the adult CreaNails size.
The box is more fun and girly which any little girl would appreciate. I don't have any little girl yet so I couldn't show you how a little girl would have done it, but I do have a niece that would surely love this cool stuff so I might try this on her when I meet her.
The CreaNails for Kids also came with a set of pink nail stencils in different sizes and as a bonus they get a cute nail stickers instead. The stickers are so cute and pretty I bet any little girl would love to put any of the stickers on her nails. And the CreaNails Kids would help her do that in a neat way ;)
Now let's get back to my nails.
After the nail polish are dry, I took off the nail stencils and I instantly love the result. Although it is still a bit messy for a professional standard but for my standard it is super beautiful. I never thought I could do a neat looking nail polish without any noticeable spill damage around my fingers ;)
This was my first try-out of the product and I think it was not bad at all for a first time use. I have used it a couple of times since then and my nails certainly look much better and more towards the professional looking ones now, LOL. Okay, let's see my first try result:
Creepy four-fingered hand shot! ;p
What do you think about my nails? Not bad, huh? You should see my nail polish when I don't use this CreaNails. There would be nail polish spilling all over and polish marks around my nails. I also usually need to remove it and then reapply it again and again until it looks neat and clean and didn't spill everywhere. But thanks to this CreaNails I can make my nails looks neater, and although there are still a little bit tiny spills but they still look presentable ;) You just need to get used to the tool first to achieve that perfect professional looking nails in no time.
Just like it claims, with this nail polish application tool you can get perfect nails at home. You get 10 sizes for each hand, plus an extra 6 pieces of the most popular sizes. There is also a note card included in the box in which you could write down the nail stencil sizes that you use for each finger so you don't have to count on your memories alone ;p -> pretty useful!
As I mentioned above, the adult CreaNails also include a bonus of french guide strips for that perfect french-tip look, but I haven't tried this one yet because I am still waiting for the perfect occasion to wear my french nails to :)
But I know I am excited to try that one out too. The instructions given in the box is pretty clear and it looks so easy to apply.
Overall, I really love the concept behind this CreaNails. I think this tool is very useful and very helpful especially for newbies or for people like me who can't get her own nail polish without looking very messy and sloppy. Also, the CreaNails Kids would be a great gift for little girls!
