Aussie Nails - Koalas and Kangaroos

As a busy blogging, working mum, sometimes I need to cheat when it comes to quick nail art.  I couldn't go past these delightful nail stickers that I spied at my local dollar shop.  The brand is Billy's Australiana Collection, and there are heaps of different Australian Themed dohickies and dodads, such as temporary tattoos, sunglasses, earrings, flags, caps, rhinestone stickers and of course nail stickers.

These two designs feature cartoon designs of two of our most iconic animals, the Kangaroo and Koala. The designs are much longer than my nails, so I actually cut half of the animals off when filing the bottom part off.  You can just see the little joey on the bottom of my longer nails.

I actually found these nail sticker incredibly difficult to apply.  These are soooo thin and soooo stretchy! My main problem was because I would place these down onto a nail and find that I put it in the wrong place, I'd then try to reposition it like I can with other nail strips, but with these ones they streeetttcccchhh so much and then suddenly detach and coil up on themselves.  I even had trouble when I would place them on my nail in the right place and try to unstick the end of the strip from my finger that was holding it. Again it would be stuck to my other finger and just streeeettttcccchhh. 

Despite my difficulties, these still looked really cute on. They lasted nicely for a day each and were easily removed with polish remover.
