On Wednesday I came home to find a parcel from Ulta3 waiting for me. Yes, I was lucky enough to receive a package containing all six of the Ulta3 Nail Art Stickers designs. 

These were a total surprise so, as I'm sure you can imagine, I HAD to give them a try. I'm terrible at applying nail stickers, well, always so I decided to use one on each hand as an accent nail in case. 
I applied the Ulta3 Nail Art Sticker in Diamond Droplet on my ring finger, with OPI's Black Onyx on the other four fingers. This was the first time I'd worn black nail polish since I uploaded my Goodbye, Black Nail Polish post, so that was also a little bit exciting for me. 

These nail stickers were so easy to apply. I used the following steps (also printed on the back of the packaging). 
  1. Start with clean, dry nails shaped to your liking. Push back the cuticles if needed. For best results, give nails one last swipe of nail polish remover to remove any excess dirt or oil.
  2. Select the best fitting sticker for each nail.
  3. Feel off the sticker and apply it not the nail with the rounded end close up to the cuticle. Firmly smooth the sticker onto the nail using a cuticle stick.
  4. Smooth excess over the nail edge, forming a crease over the edge of the nail. Gently file away excess from the nail edge with the nail file.
  5. To remove stickers, gently peel off and use nail polish remover if required.

The sticker fit my nail exactly, making the application process so easy. The difficult part for me, however, was shaping the sticker to fit my nail. Initially I followed the instructions above, however I ended up cutting the excess off with a pair of scissors and rounding it off with the nail file that came with the kit. 

These nail stickers are new to the Australian market and not like any others I've tried before. As stated above, they aren't made from nail polish. Instead, to me, it's literally like a plastic sticker that can just be placed on the nail. I found them a lot easier to apply than traditional stickers and I'm definitely more likely to repurchase them.

The stickers lasted a fair while. After wearing them for a couple of days I took the black polish off, replacing it with a hot pink. 

The Ulta3 Nail Art Stickers will be available from October.
