First off, did you realize that today is 11/11/11?
So, in honor of a fun date, I have an awesome giveaway for you today...
Jacilynn from Dashwood Shoppe is giving away 3 sets of nail shields to one lucky winner!!!
First of all, let me introduce you to Jacilynn:
"I'm a crafting crazy Mom of 3. I really love cute things, whether it is a handmade hat or a great pair of boots or some nails shields for my toes.  I love the satisfaction of making pretty things for my home and family.  I have always felt it was important that when you give, that it be personal and from the heart.   And let me be honest, with 3 kids I hardly have the time to hand make all the gifts I share.  My way of personalizing the gifts we give is to include a handmade card or tag with the gift.

I started blogging 2 years ago to share my papercrafts.  I have had to opportunity to design for multiple manufacturers and retail companies in the paper crafting community and continue to do so on my blog.  This year I've started focusing  more on my other craft passions on my blog.  I love to sew, crochet, cook, make home decor and re purpose vintage items. I love meeting people all over the world that share my passion for hand made. "
Jacilynn even sent me a few sets to try out!
I tried out the black and white checkers first.
This is how they work:
1. Manicure your nails by trimming and pushing back the cuticle. Buff nails to remove oil or dust.
2. Select nail sticker that closest fits your nail and trim as needed.
3. Peel nail sticker from backing and lay on nail. Rounded edge against the cuticle.
4. Once sticker is in place, rub all areas to smooth sticker to nail. Use cuticle pusher to press sticker firmly to nail.
5. Trim excess sticker from your nail and/or use nail file to file excess sticker from your nail.
To Remove:
Simply peel off and wash with warm, soapy water.
I've used nail shields before, and each brand are a little different.
These ones are really nice because you don't have to heat them up first, and they are really thin, so I don't feel them on my nail.  And the best part...they don't chip.  I don't ever paint my fingernails (unless it's a special occasion) because they chip so badly after a day or so.  Between dishes, and baths and cleaning, nail polish doesn't stand a chance.  With these, you just wear them until you are done and then peel them off.  Jacilynn plays volleyball a lot and said that they stand up well against sports too.
