Dashing Digits Pink Cheetah Glitter Nail Wraps (Review + Swatches)
How beautifully sparkly are these Pink Cheetah glitter nail wraps from Dashing Digits? While I have tried many nail wraps over the past few years, I have never used any with a pretty glitter overlay like these.
As you can see in the close-up swatch below, these nail strips are packed with glitter. However, they are not sparkly in an overwhelming way. The sparkle comes out more in a well-lit room and looks amazing in the sunlight. I recommend wearing them to an outdoor party or a day at the beach to really appreciate their dimension.
If you have never heard of Dashing Digits, it’s an online store that offers a line of full coverage nail wraps and nail accessories. One thing that I love about their products is that they are more accommodating for small nails. As someone with tiny hands and nails, I usually have to spend a bit of time trimming nail wraps to fit the small surface of my nail. However, with these wraps I only had to cut the ones for my pinky nails a bit—the rest fit perfectly! Also, no heat source is necessary for application so they can be applied on the go.
This set of nail wraps includes 14 different sized stickers. I found that they were easy to smooth out than the stickers from some brands because they are a bit thicker so they are less likely to leave creases and air bubbles. Another great aspect of this product is the smell. Some of the drugstore brands have a strong nail polish smell and these strips do not. Like most nail wraps, they are easy to apply since the application process involves peeling plastic off both sides of the strip, smoothing the strip over the nail, and buffing away any excess with a nail file. As you can see from the photos in this post, I was a little rough with my buffing and trimmed slightly too much off some nails. I recommend consulting the instructions that come with the product and the application tips on the company’s website before applying (http://www.dashingdigits.com/).
If you’re not into glitter, Dashing Digits offers other options like regular nail wraps, 3D wraps, and nail accessories. The company is always adding to its inventory and updates customers on new arrivals and promotions on its Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/DashingDigits)
