Nail Wrap


I don’t usually grow my nails and apply nail polish, because I don’t have the time and the skill to “design” them. Besides, my husband doesn’t like “long varnished nails”, but I have always wanted to have those long beautifully manicured nails. A few weeks ago, I saw these very pretty nail designs in a shop called Olive Young in Sorae, so I thought, “Why not grow my nails a little and paint them just for Christmas?” Last Christmas, I had a free manicure from Face Shop, and my nails looked nice, so I kinda thought of “pampering” my nails at least every Christmas (and New Year). ^^

The ones I bought in Olive Young are not actually nail polish, they’re called nail wrap(s).



I bought one kit for 9, 900 KRW  (9.19 USD) (379.44 PHP). They were on sale. The kit includes the following:

“Nail wraps” for the finger nails and toe nails

Using nail wraps are as easy as pie. It’s just like putting stickers on your nails. I had a hard time cutting them to fit my nails, though, because my nails weren’t that long. The instructions are in Japanese, but you don’t have to read them if you can’t. The pictures simply explain how nail wraps are applied.

4They stay longer than nail polish. I had them looking good as new for two weeks. They are easy to remove, too. No need to use nail polish remover, just simply pull the wraps from your nails. You may need oil or lotion after taking off the wraps to get rid of the sticky residue from your nails.




Peek-a-boo! ^^ I can’t believe my nails look even better after a week of applying nail wraps.

  1. Wow… coming from a woman full of wisdom like you, such commendation is something to be cherished. Thank you, Ms. Brook. ^^


  2. But perhaps God lets us do the “fine work” in other ways:) You are *treasured* and your blog is *one of the finest.*


  3. Hi, Ms. Brook. ^^ I’m not so good at doing manicures and pedicures, and having them done outside is a bit pricey, too, here in Korea. My Mom sent me a manicure and pedicure set, which I rarely use. I really envy women who can give themselves a perfect manicure and pedicure.


  4. Hi Chris…sorry for late answer…I used to get pedicures with bright toes, but now cannot afford. Too expensive! If I paint my nails, I do it myself and use a very pale color, to lessen mistake-showing!


  5. Yes, they’re lovely, Cher… but there are other lovelier designs I’m sure you will love. ^^


  6. Hi, Ms. Brook. ^^ I rarely get a pedicure. I just cut my toe nails, clean them… that’s it.

    Do you? =)


  7. Do you ever get pedicures? Bright toes in summer…so much fun!


  8. Sparkling nails…so colorful and pretty! Love these festive fingernails! Thank you for sharing the sparkles Chris:)


  9. i love the pink ones


Tell me what you think... ^^
