Nail Cones Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I rarely paint my nails anymore, mainly because I prefer the way that they look when I use clear polish. However, once in a while I do paint them, and when I do, I always get messy results!
I was sent a pack of nail cones that are supposed to make nail painting a lot easier.


Product Details (As described by company)
"This is an easy to use product that protects your skin when you apply nail polish. It is a sticker that is cut out to form around the nail when the polish is applied.  It is easy to apply and remove. A perfect polish every time."

I received a sheet of 15 nail cones. They were various sizes. 

This is what one nail cone looks like. You kind to find the ones that will fit each of your nails. They are just regular stickers with cute little ice cream scoops on them :)

Sadly, most of them did not fit my nails too well. What I did was squeeze the sticker along the edges and under my nail, creating the best fit.

I picked a shimmery pink color that my mom-in-law gave me as a gift and painted my nail as usual.

This is pretty much what all of the nail cones looked like after painting each nails.



My Final Thoughts
This is the end result! Not bad. Better than how they normally turn out. I think they are a cute idea, but wish that the sizes were a little closer to my nail size. Also, I only used a couple of them and reused them under other nails so I wouldn't waste them all. I was only sent a set of 15 and I want to be able to use some in the near future. (Keep in mind I was only sent a few because it was a sample pack.) These are disposable. Once you use them, that's it. I mean, you can try to do what I did and move one sticker from nail to nail, but after that, they won't last. Like I said before, they are just regular stickers, so you toss them when you're done. I honestly wish they were made of better material so that you can use them again and again. 
I still got a little bit of nail polish around some of my nails since the stickers didn't fit perfectly, but it was still less than the mess that I normally make. 
These are a good idea and I see potential in the product. There should be more sizes available, and more durable material that can be reused. However, if you just need them for a quick paint job for date night, or some special event, then just slip one of these little sheets of nail cones in your bag and take it with you so you can use when you need it!



You can buy your own pack and learn more about the product HERE! Also, if you buy a pack, they are available in a set of 4 sheets, which is a total of 60 nail cones!
