I’m attempting a new product review series entitled “Faux Product Reviews.” Some products are tough to review but I still want you to know about them. Most importantly, I don’t want to be blamed for a crap product. For more, read here!
My first set of NCLA wraps stayed on for about 4 days, 3 hours, 22 minutes and 55 seconds. On Wednesday, I suffered a tear that rocked my spirit. I knew I had to remove them. I’m sure you’re saying to yourself “I can barely see it.” Well, who asked you? Removal wasn’t as bad as the reviews. I peeled from the bottom and used a wooden cuticle pusher to remove the rest. Some reviews stated that the removal process damaged their nails. To them, I say you probably used a cheap base coat (Read: The Case of the Bases). One thing I do want to say is that it took me a little over 30 minutes to remove *sends side eye to NCLA* And, I still had to remove my base coat after so tack on another few minutes to the total removal process.

A few months ago, I planned to travel home (to New Orleans) to see one of my oldest friends star in “Simply Irma, A Musical Play.” I don’t have a good track record with plays. I saw my first (and only) one a year or so ago at a community theatre here in Jackson, MS. It was at the end of a long day, after I had a great meal and wine and because the temperature in the theatre was just right, I fell asleep. My husband vowed to never take me to another play.

I’ve always loved nail stickers aka nail wraps aka nail polish strips. Like most, I started with Sally Hansen’s Nail Stickers. If you haven’t don’t bother, they suck. My favorites were by OPI for Sephora but some idiot decided to discontinue that collection. Incoco did a great job of filling that void but their designs are limited. As a result, I decided to shop NCLA. NCLA is a nail fashion line that includes nail lacquers, wraps and treatments. They’re also vegan, non-toxic and 5 free (Formaldehyde, DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor). Not that any of you care… For more, read here!
