DIY || DIY 3D Floral Manicure Using Nail Stickers


My Obsession with Manicures shouldn’t be new to anyone who follows me on social media. However, we all know how expensive getting a Manicure can be; and so I’m constantly looking for new ways to get my nails slayed but on a budget.

My search took me to Miniso where I found these 3D Nail stickers that cost only N990 a pack. The pack comes with two 3D nail sticker strips, with each strip having 16 stickers of different sizes. The strips come pre-designed and you can stick them onto your own painted nails or faux nails – whichever you prefer. Nail stickers are pretty cool ‘cos they are an inexpensive way of making your basic polished nail look super cute.

Now, Miniso isn’t the only company to produces Nail stickers and this tutorial isn’t actually my first experience with nail sticker. I’ve used Nail stickers (also called nail wraps sometimes) from another brand on my blog here (see pictures below). So don’t be dismayed if you don’t have a Miniso store around you, you can look around for nail stickers in your local beauty store and I’m sure you’ll find some!


Anyway, enough rambling – Watch this really quick tutorial on how I turned my orange mani into a cutie! … and at the end of the video, let me know if you will consider trying Nail stickers out!

P.S. – Pictures of my manicure were taken 4 days later so yep! They do last.

Beauty Tutorial || Cheap Manicures! – How to fix Press on Nails

Fun Fact! : Did you know red text on my blog means it’s a clickable link?

Manicures don’t always have to be expensive and while some are expensive because of the materials used for them, in this ‘Economy’, you just have to behave like a recessionista and look for cheaper alternatives😉 (A term I learned from Indiana of Indianarose.net).

So today, I will be showing you my new favourite way to get my nails done on a budget! – £1 to be precise (That’s about N500) and If you will like to see a tutorial on how to make your own stick on nails, click here!

So yes. Let’s get started with today’s tutorial. But first, here are the things you’ll need

Your stick on nails

A nail file

Transparent top coat

Step 1

Open up the packet of nails. You should find a small plastic bag with some nails in it depending on the brand you are using. You will also find some nail glue, which is what I used. If it doesn’t come with nail glue, you can easily get this from a beauty supply store or the market (for those in Nigeria) or if you want to use some other nail glue , that’s fine as well.

Step 2

Begin to sort through the nails to find the one that fits each nail perfectly. Arrange them neatly on a flat surface for easy identification when sticking them on.

Step 3

Next it time to start sticking on the nails. First apply some glue onto your nail, place the faux nail on it, press down for about 10 seconds and move on to the next. Repeat this for every nail until you’re all done.

Step 4

Once all the nails have been glued on, file it to your desired shape if need be.

Step 5

Apply a Top coat over the nails to give it a glossy look and leave to dry.

Once you’ve done this for every nail, you’re all done!
