Tonight I have some super cute nails for you all. I was asked to review these stickers by Joby Nail Art a bit back, and I knew I wanted to use them for Spring/Easter.
Here is some Information that was provided to me by the company. I think it really does an excellent job at describing who Joby is and what they offer...

I was a bit skeptical about nail stickers that weren't water decals, but I wanted to give them a fair try. I can not do my own free hand nail art, so items like this offer me the chance to do something different. I combined these with Lime Crime polishes that I won on Lime Crime's Facebook Page several months back. Here are the Lime Crime polishes I used...
ParFait Day, Milky Ways and Lavendairy. Super amazing polishes that are just perfect for the Spring!
I first tried my design with Seche Vite Top Coat. Check out the sparkle in the stickers! One nice feature of the stickers is they are 3 dimensional. They are not completely flat, and that added definition really makes them look cute.
It wasn't bad over all, but it wasn't how I envisioned it either. I did like it shiny, but then I decided to try a matte finish instead.
The result once the Matte Top Coat was added was over the top GORGEOUS!!! I added the Matte Top Coat right over the stickers and it didn't damage them at all. The Matte Top Coat also brought out the sparkle in the stickers, you can see that on the flower that is on my ring finger.
I have to say I really liked these stickers. I didn't think I would, and I was so wrong.
One of my fears was that the stickers would lift, but once you applied them there was no moving them. I did try to reposition one, and it was really difficult to remove, and I ended up damaging the sticker. They are meant to stay in place once they are placed. I washed my hands several times and had them on for the day and so far nothing has moved. I'm impressed so far. (EDIT: I can really not comment on wearability with these. I never wear my polish long enough to be able to give a fair opinion of wearability, I do my best and can only relay wearability for the time I have on the product) .
I took a ton of pictures because I was so pleased with how they came out. They came out even better than I had pictured them in my head when I first planned them.
I would definitely recommend these stickers. I was very pleased with the results.
