I’m not really a spa person. I’ve never had a professional manicure or a pedicure, and I’m more willing to experiment with hairdye at home than going somewhere professional to have it done. There’s something about the DIY appeal of doing my nails and hair at home that soothes me—and, of course, it’s cheaper. As a graduate student, I love cheaper.

So when I go the opportunity to try Nail Rock decals, I was pretty excited. The British company offers “designer nail wraps,” which are basically stickers for your nails in about 30 different designs. They also offer Eye Rock (tattoo-like eyeshadow and eyeliner designs) and Lip Rock (tattoo-like lipstick designs). Nail Rock is carried at stores such as Urban Outfitters and online retailers such as Asos.com, but for February only they will be available at CVS Pharmacy locations nationwide. For this review I tested two patterns being carried at CVS and two you can find at other stores.
