Many of us wish to have perfectly manicured hands with perfectly and beautifully done nail arts. But some of us lack the time and talent (this is me) of drawing the fine strokes of color. Then comes nail art stickers to our rescue. It is an awesome way to attractive nails that too without much effort.
So, today’s review is on “Princess Sprinkle” which is a nail art pack by L’Oreal Paris from their Color Riche Nail Lingerie range.
About L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Nail Lingerie :

Price: Around 8$ for a single pack of 18 stickers.
How to apply:
Choose the right size of the sticker from the strip. Gently place it over nails and press to get rid of every air bubble and gently smooth them out with your fingers, and file off the excess with a nail file. Pretty Easy…!!
My experience with L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Nail Lingerie Princess Sprinkles:
Shade: The one I got from Anamika is “Princess Sprinkles”. It is a pretty pink spiral pattern. You can wear them solo and also above a different nail color base. I prefer to wear them over a base shade to pop the color of the stickers. I have used different shades on different fingers so that you can see how the sticker looks over different colored nails.
Longevity: I have never used a nail sticker on myself before and thus I was super excited. But to my utter disappointment this nail lingerie from L’Oreal Paris lasted only for a day before they started peeling off at the tips. Not expected from a brand like L’Oreal Paris. The good part is the little peeling which I had, stayed only on the tips for days afterwards till I completely lifted the sticker off my nails.
Application problem (If any): I find these stickers a little thicker than the ones I have seen before from other brands. My cousin used nail stickers from Sally Hansen and I remember they were thinner. With these, application wasn’t really tough. But the tough part was actually filing the extra portion of the stickers away. As it was thick it was very difficult to file down the stickers to match the actual shape of the nails. The edges remained uneven, gritty and looked unfinished.
One has to be careful for doing household chores, especially while cleaning and washing stuff while these are on. Or else it will result in adhesive removal and peeling.
Removal: Removing these stickers is easy too. Being thicker than the rest, it is easy to peel it off without actually damaging the base color. You can also dab your nails with some acetone, keep for a few seconds and wipe it off with a cotton ball or lift the sticker up.
Summing up my LIKES and DISLIKES:-
What I Liked about L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Nail Lingerie in Princess Sprinkle:
- Pretty swirls.
- Quick and easy way to make your nails stand out.
- Removing the stickers is hassle free too.
- No drying time required.
- Doesn’t damage nails.
- Choice for different sizes available.
What I Don’t Liked about L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Nail Lingerie in Princess Sprinkle:
- A lot of care and maintenance is required or else it will peel off soon.
- Filing becomes tough due to the thickness of the stickers.
Final Thoughts: These nail stickers or nail lingerie, whatever they are, are very effective way to save time and trouble when you’re in a hurry and you want your nails to look beautiful and stand out. While the designs are fabulous and the application is easy, filing them is tough and these may not fit perfectly onto all nail shapes too. I have rounded finger nails for which they got easily creased at tips and sides. This can be somewhat avoided if you have square nails. Overall, other than the filling and subsequent peeling problem, these are decent products.
I would recommend these to ladies who want quick ways to make their nails stand out for some occasion or who are willing to spice up nails for a special date without going too overboard and gaudy. Just simple and pretty
