The finished manicure using University Nail Pax

  • The adhesive nail foils are extremely easy to apply, but not overly sticky, so you can remove and reposition them if needed.
  •  The filing technique used to shape the foil to your nail is genius and cuts a very clean edge.
  • There was some rippling and bubbling at the nail's edge which was difficult to get rid of even after applying a top coat. Perhaps using a base coat would help the nail foil adhere better.
  • Doing both hands took about as long as a regular manicure, but was much less messy and frustrating. Plus, no need to worry about nicks or smudges!
  • The design is bright and fun, but would love to see other team variations since some logos are less recognizable when shrunk down for the polka dot pattern.

Final Score:

4 out of 5 whistles for University Nail Pax
4 out of 5 whistles!
