|Rose Gold nail art design - Valentine's Day nail art|
For this nail design, I focused on the rose gold combination and wanted a bit of opulence and change of pace from the usual opaque basic color. I used a Forever 21 cheapie glitter polish (anything would work really) and paired it with the OMGNailStrips - surprisingly, the whole process didn't take too long and I ended up with a complex and beautiful manicure.

My sister, Mackenzie, also reviewed the OMGNailStrips and provided a very helpful step by step tutorial on applying these nail foils. As I was doing my own designs, I was following her advice so be sure to check out the post on how to apply nail foil strips or nail polish strips. Plus, she made a cute plaid nail art so that's another reason to read on (yes, I linked the post three times because my sis is awesome).
Pros: The OMGNailStrips are affordable with free domestic and international shipping and provide a wide range of options of polish strips and polish foils. I was drawn to this red and gold design because I knew I could not create it by free-hand and because I loved the shiny material of the strips. Plus, the design goes perfectly with rose gold accent nails and I can't turn down a rose gold polish. Overall, I am happy with the quality and clarity of the print, the amount of strips, the designs, and product longevity.
Cons: The biggest issue I had with the strips was the lack of adhesive. I had difficulty having the nail polish strip stick to my nail despite first prepping and cleaning my nail. I wish the product would actually glue easier - because of this, the nail strip ended up wrinkled and moving across the nail bed. I tried setting the nail strip with a top coat which helped set it on my nail bed but because of air bubbles underneath, the nail foil strip again wrinkled. The process of applying was a bit tricky and took some pulls and pushes to align the strip correctly.
