Sweet Lacquer Nail Vinyls review + nail art

Press Sample buttonHi everyone! This is a post a long time in the making, because I wanted to be able to use and review Sweet Lacquer Nail Vinyls as a normal customer would, in regular manis. So this is going to be a longer post with a few different manis!

I’ve been having trouble with nail vinyls lately and Sweet Lacquer offered to send me a variety of their vinyls to try out. What impressed me right off the bat is that on the back of each vinyl sheet is basically a mini business card – their name, website, and what that sheet of vinyls is – as pictured above and below.

This is seriously genius because though I don’t use nail vinyls a lot, there have been times when I’ve used up a whole sheet and thought, “Now darn it, who made this and what was it called?” So, from a consumer standpoint, I wish all nail vinyl makers did something like this. It’s so useful.

In the first mani I created, I used the fishnets variety vinyls, the kiss vinyl/cutouts, and the “xoxo” border. The fishnets variety vinyls threaded (separated) fairly easily and so did the others. I feel like I should have used a thinner polish for the kiss cut out because I lost some of the detailing.

I started with 2 coats of China Glaze Liquid Leather on my index and middle fingers, then used Polished For Days P.Y.T. with the fishnet vinyls.

For my second mani, I used the zigzags variety vinyls. Again, I had no problem getting them off the paper backing or getting them to stick. This was an extend-a-mani. I had started with ILNP Mona Lisa and used Girly Bits Cosmetics Dreaming Tree with it.

This next mani I used the skinny wavy zigzag stencils. No problems peeling each stencil off the backing or getting them to stick.

This was yet another extend-a-mani in which I had started with SinfulColors Prosecco [previously swatched] and used Pahlish Statue of a Girl with it.

For this last mani, I used the medium dots stencils. I did have quite a bit of trouble weeding this design off the backing.

I had started with Enchanted Polish Magical Mystery Tour, then used Anonymous Lacquer Wrath on top.

All in all, I’m really pleased with the vinyls from Sweet Lacquer. It seems like most full sheets are $4, which I think is reasonable. If you’re in the market for vinyls, I suggest giving them a try out! Which of these manis is your favorite?
