Mommy & Me - You Polish Vinyls Review
Hi guys! Today I have the cutest thing, a mommy and me manicure courtesy of the new Mommy and Me vinyl sets from You Polish. These are sets of vinyls that include "normal" sized designs and different smaller sizes perfect for little nails.
There are 3 different sets of Mommy and Me vinyls available and I got samples of all three to share with you. Set 1 is Bows, Spirals, and Mermaids. Set 2 is Cupcakes, Butterflies, and Lines. Set 3 is Hearts and Stars. I'm going to review the Hearts and Stars set for you today, which has some chevrons included. Be on the lookout for more Mommy and Me manicures with the other sets soon.
I showed all the sets to my daughter and she picked out Hearts and Stars because she wanted a "zig-zag" pattern. She's 7 years old and struggles with biting her nails just like I did so they are currently really short. We settled on a simple chevron design using Orly Neon Heat as a base and Hot Tropics on top. (Yes, once again, I'm using Orly's 2014 Baked collection, in my defense, she picked them out.)
These vinyls were incredibly easy to use so I'm going to show you guys a quick how-to.
First I painted her nails with one coat of Orly Neon Heat and topcoated with Pretty and Polished Swift Sparkle topcoat.
After the base was dry, I applied the chevrons, then placed one layer of Orly Hot Tropics on top, and immediately removed them before moving on to the next nail.
Sorry about the blurriness but I had trouble photographing her hands as she did not want to stay still. As you can see in her thumb macro, I was able to create perfect chevron nails on a very tiny space.
On the rest of her nails I was only able to place one chevron vinyl. She was very happy with them though and wore her manicure for several days.
Here are my nails so you can get a really good look at how crisp and clean the lines are. Out of all the vinyls I've used, I've liked these so far the most. I have absolutely no issues to report with them.
