kawaii 3D nail rock teddy bear nail art!

1.04.2013


wow wow wee wow! I'm so excited to share these nails with you guys!

behold the cutest things to have adored my fingers ever.. 3D teddy bears! (hurrah for nail rock)

my sister bought me these for christmas after she saw me drooling over them on asos and I'm completely smitten with them. possibly the most impractical thing to wear (constantly getting caught in my hair) they do make up for the slight inconvenience by being super fun and princess-esque! I'd recommend these more for a night out or event rather then everyday wear but it's entirely based on your patience levels..

tempted to try them? here's what you'll need:


nail rock frou frou available here: nail rock


nail polish! I used my fave models own pastel selection: models own


they're uber easy to work with!

first paint your base coat and leave to dry. 
apply your second coat one finger at a time and whilst still wet press in the teddy and hold firmly. 
leave to dry and seal with top coat.

you can apply the 3D pieces with nail art glue which is longer lasting (this is included in the kit) just be warned that the glue will penetrate the polish and you'll have to remove it afterwards by filing it off!


mine lasted a full 24hrs before I lost my first victim (whilst putting on my darn skinny jeans) but you can glue them back on and they're a plenty of spares in the pack!

overall I love them, definitely the best way to kick off the new year nail art!

what do you think?

  8. so. freakin'. cute! Great match with the colour and bears, although i actually think my favourite one is your ring finger with bow, that's adorable :) How long are they supposed to stay on for?

    1. I kept mine on for two days before I removed them, only 1 fell off which I glued back on! you do have to be careful- the bows seem to be the easiest to catch and pull off! it doesn't say how long they should last- probably depends on how much wear and tear they go through ;) xx
