Who would have thought nail wraps would actually catch on? How could they, if you needed an expert manicurist and a low-key lifestyle to make them last more than just a few days? Then came nail wraps, which turned the high fashion detail into a wearable accessory (literally—just last month Prabal Gurung launched a set of nail strips for Sally Hansen).
No brand helped establish the adhesive nail designers quite like Rock Cosmetics, which launched its Nail Rock line in the US earlier this year. Now cat eyes—see the runways of Dolce & Gabbana, Badgley Mischka, and Giorgio Armani, among others—is getting the wrap treatment, and once again Rock Cosmetics is behind it. The brand’s Eye Rock Designer Liner tapes offer the shaky-handed an alternative to liquid-lined eyes, with each sheet offering four different styles. Some are basic, thin lines, while others are a bit more intricate (the double-winged liner, for example gets you the same look spotted at Marios Schwab).
Unlike fake lashes you don’t need any special tools to put them on, and at the end of the night they peel right off. Whether they’ll have the same appeal as nail wraps remains to be seen, but if you’re scared of the hard-to-master liquid marker, this might be your go-to product.
