Joby Nail Stickers!

Author: marta  //  Category: Color Club, Joby Nail Art, Ozotic

Hello Lovely Ladies,

* the GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED! *

You know that I have recently been into water decals, well today I have another way to use decals (and this one does not require any water!) ;)

You see, I have been given the privilege of reviewing a set of Jobi Nail Art stickers:

I have used nail stickers before but found that they peeled quickly and would raise significantly from the nail to make them feel awkward…

… Well, these ARE different.  Aside from the little silver gem/glitters, these decals rest flat against the nail and are virtually undetectable to the touch.  They also stay on really well.  Two days of wear and not a single one was lifting (I had to remove the manicure at that point for an unrelated reason).

This set contains 24 nail stickers (in various sizes) and retails for $4.19 (EDIT: on SALE now for $2.99)

Black Jewelry Design Collection – 3 Flowers with Swirls SKU# JW-06

How to apply:

* Lift decal from the backing with fingers or tweezers (I worked with tweezers)

* Place on your bare/painted-but-dry nail.

* Press down firmly.

* Cover with topcoat.

Easy-Peasy!

To create this look I sponged the tips of my nails with Color Club Meet Take Me To You Chateau and then with Ozotic Sugar-903.  After applying the Joby Nail Art decals, I added one coat of Seche Vite over the entire nail (decal included).

I really love how these turned out! I couldn’t stop looking at my nails (I think my sister and friends got a few photo text-messages of these nails over the course of two days, lol).

And now for the even better part!!!!

Jobi Nail Art sent me a second package of decals for a

    This is exactly why I don’t like wearing decals. I hate the raised bump feeling on my nails I usually reserve them for my toes. I would love to try these out!

    1. Carrie B email: polishinsomnia @gmail.com

    2. What is your go to polish color?

    3. Following your blog via email and on twitter / @ckgurly

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      My go to polish color changes with the season. In the spring/summer I am really into pastels. Now it is taupe (Like China Glaze Below Deck or OPI Berlin There Done That). I would reach for those shades if I need a quick mani without much effort ;)

      Thank you for entering the Giveaway.

  • Christine Steiner

    A very Marta-esque mani – i.e. swooped straight to my try-out list. So far that’s the one nail-art effect that I muster -LOL.
    Question: do you have a “weak” hand or handle painting both as easy?
    I follow you via Instagram and Twitter (mausishuffle) and through Bloglovin (Polished Marvels)

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      Aside from the swatches that I have recently been showing on my blog, the manicures that I show are ones that I paint on both hands and then enjoy as I go about my day. I have never gone out of the house with one hand painted and the other not ;) I would say that my dominant hand (painted by my left hand) looks just like my left hand quality wise. (The only two manicures where that was NOT the case is the Grinch manicure and the “Little Critter” manicure that were both freehanded…

      Thank you for entering the Giveaway.

    I love this manicure, it’s so subtle and elegant!

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      Wow.

      In terms of art and nail-art I really like abstract and geometric shapes. Most of the decor in our home consists of earth toned geometric shaped paintings and nick-knacks. I am smitten with any kind of art though really. I think it is incredibly awesome the talent that people on this planet posses- I’m just wowed!

      Thank you for entering the Giveaway.

  • Stacy Plowman-Pennock

    Gah!! OMG, SPLATS!! I love those stickers because they immediately made me think of your KBS Oh, Splat! manicure which I still LOVE LOVE LOVE!!
    1. Stacy Pennock, stacy73@gmail.com
    2. If you could only paint your nails one color (Gasp, the horror!!) for the REST OF ETERNITY, what color (read: color family, i.e. pinks or reds, etc) would you choose and (2 questions in 1!) does your all time favoritest polish ever fall in that color family?
    3. I follow you all the ways! :)

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      (I’m so glad you remembered my Oh Splat! manicure) … these stickers made me think of that manicure also :D

      hmmm… assuming that I could only paint my nails ONE color for the rest of my life, I would make it beige…. I’m getting older ;) and while my current favourite shade is baby-blue I can’t see myself in my 60s with blue nails ;) So beige it is.

      My all time favourite polish is China Glaze “Below Deck”… gosh, I relax when I see that color and it is chic IMO. Yup, huge fan of that taupe

      Thank you for entering the Giveaway.

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      What a COOL question!

      I looove watching the Ellen DeGeneres show. I would totally love to paint her nails!!!! She has such a neat fashion sense and I could see myself painting an accent nail that matches her scarf, or her socks ;) Plus, while I was painting I am sure I would enjoy chatting to her- she has a great fun spirit :D

      Thank you for entering the Giveaway.

      • Irena

        I guess it would be very hard to paint her nails while laughing :D

    2. How old do you think is too young to be avidly involved with nails?
    3. I get emails when you post, I guess gmail?
    Thanks for the great giveaway!!

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      ooooh, that is a neat question.

      I have two daughters (three and five) and I paint their nails as a special treat. I have been painting their nails ever since they stopped putting their hands in their mouth ;) (on occasion).

      I think as long as nail polish and nail painting stays a hobby (rather than an all-encompassing obsession) it is okay at any age. I think the blogging/nail painting community is a fun one, and it can teach you many skills and help you socialize with people that have a common interest. Family, school and responsibilities first, then painting ;) … I may have taken this question too far ;) In short, no age is too early, as long as it is done in moderation and with ‘age appropriateness’ ;)

      Thank you for entering the Giveaway.

      • Esther

        thanks for answering Marta! I love doing nails and pretty much anything to do with nail art, including reading your blog! Keep doing what you love!

  • Zara Sarén

    These looks so cute!

    1. I’m Zara and can be reached at zsaren@gmail.com

    2. I’m always curious to find out what nail polish bloggers do outside the nail polish world (if there is one). Do you work, if so what kind of job do you have?

    3. I follow via bloglovin and instagram!

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      Good Question :D

      I went to school to study Psychology and Social Work. I even worked in the field for just over one year (with young offenders and first time adult offenders). But then my husband and I decided to start a family and I now work part time as a porter at the hospital and tend to our three children. When they are all in school, I would love to refresh my studies just a little and work in Human Resources or do some Social Work again.
      (that was a bit of a winded answer- sorry ;) )

        That was a great answer! Thanks :)

      oh that is a tough one!

      I will interpret food as something that means meal (rather than my must-eat-at-least-once-a-day chocolate obsession) ;) I LOVE pizza! Any kind!!! The options/toppings on pizza are limitless and I love any combo ;) Plus, the kids like pizza too so it is a nice way to cook together and eat together :D

    3: I follow you via GFC :)

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      Neat Question,

      I would definitely go on a No-Buy :D I have a giant collection of polish, and a lot of shades that I wouldn’t mind revisiting (even over and over) so that would be much easier on me. And while I like to be on top of what is trending nail-polish wise, I rarely see a shade that I MUST jump on right away… so yeah, I’d last the 30 days on a no-buy ;)

      Thank you for entering the Giveaway.

    This is beautiful Marta! Love the whole look :)

    The splats for the giveaway stickers are adorable! Love them!

    Would you rather give up coffee for a month or give up painting your nails?

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      LOL, tricky question BUT JAVA trumps polish… it really does!

      With three little kids chatting off my ear, and dropping everything that is not perma-mounted ;) I need my Java to keep up. While I love painting my nails, I’m not bothered by them being nekkid (I’m on day three of nekkid nails…) :D After the month was up I would most likely pour polish into the java just to get my fill though ;)

    Question: Do you have any tip to make your nail polish dry faster?

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      When I first learned to paint my nails (as a young girls ;) ) I was taught to apply thin coats (if that means doing two coats over one then that is what I do). So I apply my polish in thin coats (which helps the polish itself settle faster). I then reach for my TOP favourite topcoat “Seche Vite”. This topcoat leaves my nails glossy and they are literally fully dry in 5 minutes. I could crawl into bed and wake up with no sheetmarks. I have three little children, so this topcoat is my must-have lifesaver ;)

      Thank you for entering the Giveaway.

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      Thank you for entering the Giveaway.

      My cuticles have improved sooo much since using Lemony Flutter once/day before bedtime. I used to ‘cut’ my cuticles *gasp, I know* , but now I use a cuticle remover (Sally Hansen).

      For my basecoat, I recently switched from OPI Nail Envy to Essie Grow Fast and I loooove the Essie much more. Less chipping, stronger nails. No staining.

      I did a post on my nail/cuticle routine here:

    2. What was the first polish you fell in love with, or which polish started the obsession?
    3. I follow via Bloglovin!

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      Hmmmm…

      The very first polish that I ever owned was a sheer/shiny blue shade that was a special gift because I was “old” enough to wear polish with ‘color’… I loved it for the reason that it showed my ‘passage into young-lady’ ;) lol

      But if I were to really reflect on what shade started the obsession I would say that it was a black Wet n’ Wild shade. When I was able to see black as chic and trendy (rather than Gothic- I really had a very sheltered upbringing ;) ) THAT IS WHEN the doors to nail-color options opened up to me. Browns, blues and greens followed shortly after ;)

      Thank you for entering the Giveaway.

      • Jamie Willett

        The first polish that hooked me in was light blue creme!

  • Kayla Angus

    2..For my quesstion to you I would like to know how long do you typically wear a manicure for until changing polish. And how much time do you spendapprox doing a new manicure?
    3..I follow via Bloglovin and Pinterest

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      Thought it might be hard to believe, the manicures that I do wear and enjoy I try to keep on for at least 4 days. My daily routine usually results in tipwear an minor chips after 3-4 days. I do NOT like chipping manicures (in fact, I feel tense and itchy when I see chipped polish – an OCD like reaction). So, I aim to wear a loved manicure for 4 days but if it chips before that I either touch it up OR remove it. I am able to post so often because I swatch my product reviews and only wear a selection of what you see out… I usually will mention if it is a look that I am wearing or just swatching :D Thank you for your sweet question.

      New manicures take me about 30 minutes (that includes stamping and any additional accent stuff). I usually spend my ‘dull’ moments pondering up a new manicure so when it is time to paint I have the idea and I just execute it ;)

    My question for you is… when you put your pants on in the morning, do you put your right leg, or your left leg, in first? LOL!

    On a polish related note, how many lovely little bottles are now in your collection?

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      LOL love your sense of humour… I snorted out loud when I read your question :D Thank you for that.

      I believe my LEFT leg always goes in first (creature of habit)… I haven’t counted my stash in a while but it was 350 last time… I am afraid I am approaching 400 these days! GASP

  • Guest

    Hi Hunni , I follow you on all platforms (stalker much!) lol anyways , I would like to know How long does it take for you to create your materpieces? (just the manicure) Hope your well xx

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      LOL, you are so sweet to call it a MasterPiece.
      I will admit that I spend ‘dull’ moments of my day “thinking up” a manicure idea so that when it comes to painting I have all of my shades picked out etc. From basecoat to topcoat I would say 30 minutes… especially when I do stamping the drying-time is what takes up the most time. I am fortunate enough to be able to paint my nails without much ‘cleanup’ needed… I usual only touch up 3-4 nails with acetone (honestly)… so that helps a LOT too :D

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      Oh gosh! That would have to be PERIDOT by Chanel. While Below Deck is my all time favorite it is a cream but pretty standard. Peridot is duochrome and shimmery and quite high-class for me so it would help me feel like a princess stranded on a secluded island ;) lol

  • Sara Thornton

    Sara Thornton – inside_br0ken@hotmail.com

    As someone just starting out it’s really hard to get a grasp on what these professional nail artists are doing to get their mani’s so perfect. I get using pure acetone with a brush, don’t push polish to the cuticle, practice, etc. But why don’t my brushes work the trick? What stiffness do I even need the bristles to be because any small nail art angled brush I have seems to be too soft. Where exactly/what name of brush do you use to clean up your cutes?

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      How sweet are you to put me in the ‘professional nail artist’ group. I’m so flattered.

      I am probably the worst to ask that question to because my brush was purchased at the local dollar store (it doesn’t have a number/bristle code or anything). I would be happy to send you a photo / short video of it via email if you would like.
      My bristles are quite stiff as it is a white bristle art (as in painting) brush. I have heard of a lot of ladies using eyebrow brushes. The trick is to leave a natural line by the cuticles (because if the cuticle line is flooded with polish it will be touch to remove the polish from the cuticle area)… So I leave a 1-2mm line while I paint, and then just use the brush to make that line rounder. I also use the brush-acetone method BEFORE I apply topcoat which helps with the removal of unwanted polish (In fact, the removal is easiest while the polish is still fairly wet)… so you might find that working one nail at a time is best: Paint, and work the acetone brush while polish is still wet.

      I am so sorry I couldn’t be of more help

    Love the decals. I am so inspired by you to do saran wrap mani (I tried my hands on it and believe me I am in love with it :) )
    email: preciouspearlmakeup@gmail.com

    b/w my question: My nails are very weak and they chip a lot during winters. What should I do to avoid chipping?

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      I’m soooo glad you tried the saran-wrap manicure! I am itching to do another one soon myself :D They are so fun and relatively easy right!? :D

      I have found that two things help (though the winter months are horrible on my nails also).
      I am using Essie Grow Faster to keep my nails strong AND I use Lemony Flutter nightly to moisturize the nail and cuticle area… I hope this helps :D
      ps. It is also key to keep your nails at a length/shape that is manageable for YOU and your lifestyle

      • http://www.facebook.com/preciouspearlmakeup Precious Pearl

        Yeah Saran Wrap is total fun! Thanks for the suggestions Marta :)

    I follow you on my blog.

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      My favourite nail polish to WEAR is “Below Deck” by China Glaze
      My favourite nail polish in my STASH is “Peridot” Chanel because it was a gift from my hubby, my first Chanel anything AND the most expensive varnish I own… it is also symbolic of how far my ‘taste’ in polish has gone for a girl who used to only wear pinks and nudes ;)

  • Raquel Mason

    I really enjoy your blog, your nails are stunning. I so enjoy reading your blog. My nails are peeling beyond the free edge, any suggestions? raqmason@aol.com

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      I have read somewhere that basecoats/nail treatments are a great way to cure that problem BUT that each person may respond well to different brands/kinds of basecoats so you have to shop around/test a few before you find the one that works for you. I used to use OPI “Nail Envy” which is raved about by many… it worked for a while to keep my nails from peeling (and I too have this issue- bad). Then Nail Envy seemed to stop working. I now use Essie Grow Faster and it really seems to work/help… It seems to have a thicker consistency so it feels like it is penetrating the nail to help (this could also all be in my head ;) ).

      I ALSO use a nail buffing block… once my nails peel I buff the nail to give it one smooth edge (that way there are no visible ridges under the varnish). I featured my buffing block in this blogpost:

      http://www.chitchatnails.com/2012/04/25/nail-and-cuticle-care/

      I hope this helps ;)

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      I have two things that have helped me with that. I ALWAYS always use a basecoat. Secondly, I use a nail-buffer maybe once/week once/two weeks and buff-out the stains. The buffer is a simple buffing block… I featured it a long time ago in this post:

      http://www.chitchatnails.com/2012/04/25/nail-and-cuticle-care/

  • Sonal

    Hello Marta!! This is Sonal and I follow you on instagram, I am nails_ junkie and my email id is m.sonal21@Gmail.com

    My question to you is, how did Peter propose you? Did he woo you by gifting you your fav.polish collection?

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      What a sweet question.
      Peter is my highschool sweetheart. My first real boyfriend turned into my husband. We dated since we were 15. When I was 22 (yes, 7 years later) we were up at a cottage that we rented annually with our siblings… He was away on business and missed the first few days of the cottage. He arrived late in the evening mid-week of our vacation… but he brought a little gift for me (I was clueless). He was actually so nervous that he locked his keys in his car (his parents had to drive down 2 hours to help us unlock it LOL). BUT, he took me out on the beach (private beach so there was no one there). It was pitch black and we sat on a giant log that drifted up onto the beach. It was so dark that it took me a moment to realize that he was on one knee and proposing. I was elated to say the least. We had to walk back to the cottage for me to actually see the ring he chose for me :D BUT, it was a lovely time to propose as we still had 4 days of relaxation with our siblings to enjoy the moment before we got back to school and work… :D We still rent the cottage (once/year) so each time we step foot on that beautiful beach I remember our special moment.

      • Sonal

        Thanks so much for getting back Marta! Awww this is so cute, I have always adored you guys. Hence thought of asking you. Seriously I like you guys even more after reading this. Hugs*:-) it’s very important for a spouse to be a friend first and you folks are classic example, cheers to you!! And hats off to Peter, brave boy he must have been :-) God bless you and kisses for your little ones. To tell you a secret, I want my babies to be just like them, sweethearts they’re :-) hope I meet them some day. Till then take care and have a good day!

    My name is Janelle Monique and my email is life.nailpolish@yahoo.com. I have two questions so here goes: How do you keep your nails so nice? I simply adore your nail shape and length. And how do you come up with nail art ideas? I’m trying to be more creative than just copying another design from other bloggers.

    • http://www.chitchatnails.com/ Marta

      To answer your question, I am still growing in learning about nail maintenance… I am currently trying to keep a square shape and I use a glass nail file from CultNails to shape them straight (this is a tough shape to maintain as my corners keep chipping and I have to file my nails down ;) ). I also use a cuticle remover to help with the base of my nails… I posted a nail care post a while back with full details of all the products that have (to date) helped me:

      http://www.chitchatnails.com/2012/04/25/nail-and-cuticle-care/

      As per ideas for Manicures… I have found that using shades and patterns that make “ME” happy always yield the best results… I also look to fashion (clothing in stores) and decoration (cards, home decor) for color combination idea or patterns… those are always great starting points… Just have fun with it. I started out by copying other designs also… then I started copying the design but using my own color palate… I still copy designs these days – and I think that is all part of the fun ;)

      • http://www.facebook.com/janelleismonique Janelle Monique

        Thanks for answering! I use cuticle remover every so often and I have the Cult Nails file too! And I’ll try to think more of color combos that make me happy!

      My favourite nail polish in my collection is “Peridot” … while I don’t wear it often it is the most special/expensive shade in my stash. My favourite shade to WEAR is Below Deck by China Glaze
