While this is not my first attempt at playing with "vinyl nails" or foil wraps as there also known. This is the first time they have actually lasted all day long!
This is the set I chose. I bought them way back in the fall, just waiting for the right time.
While they are quite a "treat" to put on (to say the least) Once there, they're not that bad! I was able to go about my day as normal, and they pretty much did what my nail polish ALWAYS does... CHIP.. Only on the top edges and it's not really noticeable to anyone but my well trained (paranoid) eye, but that's a good thing. They lasted one whole day of wear including a cpl loads of hand washing dishes ( so basically submerged in water) as well as a shower and a long soak in the tub. THAT my friends is where things went bad. After soaking in the tub both my nail polish AND my vinyl nails literally just peeled right off. I had hard as nails top coat on them as well and it didn't matter. Don't get me wrong, I LOVED them (sorry I didn't get a picture) but really in general nail polish itself doesn't last to long on me with how much I do. Considering this fact I highly recommend Maybeline's new color show nail polish. I love the colours and the texture of the nail polish. As for the nail vinyls from Folk China on ebay. For 1 or 2 dollars you really can't go wrong. There fun designs that can give you a funky and cool accent nail like what I had, or a whole set of wicked awesomeness to hang out with for a while! Either way, even though neither lasted that long I highly recommend both. Below I will have a link to Folk China AND Maybeline's new Color Show nail polish line.

P.s. The nail polish I used was Shocking Seas, as a nice complimentary to the purple in my nail foils. I also already own Chiffon Chic as well.
