Mystique Nail Appliqués are nail decorations made from high quality materials and manufactured in the United States. They are designed to be placed onto the finger nail or toe nail. Mystique has a large range of bold and exciting designs with a variety of over 120 patterns and colours.

What we say:
‘I really love wearing nail polish and experimenting with different nail stickers. It’s always a fun activity for me to zone in on and I always enjoy that time to myself. That being said, I am rather conservative with my colour choices and was a little apprehensive about trying the Safari Chic nail appliqués by Mystique. This set came in two colours: Red and a Zebra print with 12 different sizes for each colour (24 stickers per pack). This ensures you are able to find a size that will match the size of each of your nail beds. The process of applying appliqués is not always as easy as one would think and a tip is to make use of a wooden cuticle stick to apply it to your nail. I use the stick to lift up each sticker and then lightly stick it to the stick. It makes the positioning a lot easier and also prevents the sticker from losing its stickiness. When you touch the sticky side too much it doesn’t adhere to the nail very well and it will peel off.

‘These appliqués are thick and plastic-like, which is different from the foil and lacquer ones I’ve used in the past. Because it’s thick it doesn’t really mould well to the curved shape of my nail beds and is easier to apply on a flatter nail bed. My first few attempts at getting a smooth bubble free application were quite unsuccessful and I discovered that the only way to get a very smooth finish was to really pull hard on the excess of the appliqué and stretch it across my nail bed. This meant I couldn’t use the extra on another nail.

‘These appliqués don’t last incredibly long if you are going to be washing dishes, your hair and general household chores (what women typically do every day). I think these are meant for an application before going out for a night and then removing them the next day.

‘To remove the stickers, just lift up the edge of the appliqués along your cuticle line. It removes very easily and doesn’t leave any sticky residue on your nail. I read on the label that you can apply a layer of gel top coat, which should make these appliqués last longer, although I personally haven’t tried gel on my nails before.

‘All in all, the nail appliqués by Mystique is a fun product to use but I don’t think I am converted from using traditional nail polish just yet.’

Some tips:
• Use a wooden cuticle stick to position the appliqué on your nail.
• If you need to cut the appliqué, leave it on the backing paper and use a pair of cuticle scissors to cut it to size.
• If you have any length of an appliqué left, stick it down on the backing sheet to use another time.
• Be patient and take your time.

I would love to try them I tried the foil and they didn’t last and I battled with cutting them. I hope these work and last!

Not sure about these. I think I will stick to my nail polish and small stickers.

It’s really bold patterns, so you have to be willing to be noticed with this on your nails. I have tiny fingernails, so cutting the right size was a bit difficult.

I absolutely love nail art and decorations. These things are fantastic! I would recommend them to any girl. Too cool!!

Great for toenails

Kate Matchett

I quite like these nail transfer’s for toenails. I find they don’t last so nicely on my fingernails but with a good quality top coat they last nicely on my toes. Great to stock up on for summer.
