With all this extra leisure time, I've found myself trying out more at-home manicures than I can keep track of — and I'm not the only one. The nail category has seen a huge increase in sales since lockdown began in March, proving that while we might not be visiting our nail tech for a while, nothing is stopping us from treating ourselves to a manicure at home. But after weeks of DIY polish jobs, I was starting to get bored. I missed the intricate, pretty nail art that I used to get in the salon. That is, until I found my new secret weapon: the Ciaté Cheat Sheet Nail Stickers ($18). They're the perfect way to create snazzy (and professional-looking) nail art without messing around with special tools and complicated techniques.
I heard about the Ciaté Cheat Sheets months before they launched and was a little skeptical about the product living up to its promises: "easy-to-use nail sticker sheet designs that can be applied to either dry, painted nails or bare nails," it claimed. Even better, the stickers don't require a top coat if you don't have one (although they last longer and look better with one). The application process couldn't be simpler, and I can confirm that it lives up to its promises. In short: the stickers let you pretend you have the skills and patience of a nail artist, when the reality is, well, far from it.
Read on to see my thoughts, photos, and tips on creating the perfect at-home manicure using the Ciaté Cheat Sheet Nail Stickers.
