**REVIEW** Nail Cones

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I love to paint my nails, but I absolutely hate how the nail polish gets all over my skin. So, when I heard about Nail Cones, I was really excited! Finally, a product for someone like me! I couldn't wait to get my hands on them.

They came via USPS in a cute pink envelope. Nothing fancy, no extra unnecessary packaging. Nail Cones usually come in a pack of 60 (4 sheets, 15 cones on each). However, since this was just a sample for review purposes, it was one sheet.

Each row is a different size (which I didn't realize until after I started applying them). The neat thing about the sizes is that each size has a different amount of ice cream (all three for small, two scoops for medium, and one for large). So, it's fairly easy to tell what size you're using.

To use these, you need to make sure your fingers and nails are washed and dried. If they're dirty or wet, the Nail Cone may not stick as well as it should, leading to nail polish being on your skin instead of only the nail. Once your fingers and nails are nice and clean, and dry, peel off the size you need. Place your nail in the center cutout, with the ice cream scoop under your nail. Take the sides of the Nail Cone and wrap it around the outside of your nail so that only your nail is exposed. Once you have done that with all your nails on one hand, you're ready to paint your nails! Don't worry about going super slow to avoid mess-ups. The Nail Cone, if applied correctly, will keep the polish on your nails. Once you have achieved the desired shade (one coat or more), allow it to dry fully before slowly removing the Nail Cones off your nails. Then do the same for the other hand.

As you can see from the pictures below, I used different sizes because I wasn't aware that there were three different sizes on each sheet. The top left picture shows the small size on my pinkie. It was a little big, which made it a bit difficult to apply it correctly. The top right picture is my ring finger and a medium size. As you can see, it was way too large. I did leave it, however, because I liked how I could overlap it at the bottom of my nail, which I could not do with the small on my pinkie. The bottom left shows all the Nail Cones and my freshly painted nails.

Unfortunately, these Nail Cones did not work for me. I really do love the idea, and wanted them to work for me. As you can see from the last picture above, there is still lots of polish on my fingers. I admit I was a little less careful than I usually am, but I wanted to test out these Nail Cones. If there were another smaller size, I am sure this wouldn't have been an issue. A friend suggested I try these out on my toe nails, but I couldn't get them to fit my toe nails either, even with the largest size.

Over the course of a week, I have sent two messages to see if they offered a children's size, but they have not yet responded to me. Hopefully, they are just busy and not able to respond to messages at the moment.

If you are interested in purchasing some Nail Cones of your own, or if you'd like more information, you can find them HERE.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
