Thoughts: I've always loved bows on people's nails, but on the other hand, I felt I couldn't rock it. Given the opportunity, I decided to try it. For that reason, I was excited but also nervous not knowing how it'll turn out. Unfortunately when I received the package, one of the bows was cracked. I was sad but happy that I had at least one to play with.
Here's a closer look at the 3D Bow. Isn't it cute!?!?
Here's what I did with the bow. I applied 2 coats of OPI in Black Onyx and Essie in Blanc. Then I applied polka dots using my nail art tool. Then I topped it off with Seche Vite Top Coat. I apologize for the messy polka dots! I'm just so impatient waiting for it to dry. I couldn't wait any longer. :X With my ring finger, I applied 2 coats of Essie in Blanc. Then I applied OPI in Black Onyx on the tip. Topped it off with Seche Vite Top Coat. In the morning, I applied nail glue on the middle back of the bow and put it in the area of the nail I wanted.
Here's another picture of the 3D bow.
Here's a picture of the bow from a different angle. You can see from this angle how it sticks out.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, this is a lot easier than I expected! I always thought applying anything with nail glue would be a mess and it would take a long time to dry. I was wrong!!! I actually researched online about nail glues. If you're going to get a nail glue, I recommend getting one with a tip. I'm not 100% sure about nail glues with a brush since I never experienced it myself. I could see it getting messy if you apply the brush accidentally on a spot you're not suppose to. Thankfully with the tip, it's easy to apply on the spot you desire. Then I grabbed one side of the bow with a Tweezer and applied it on the area I wanted. Then I pressed hard on the bow. Secondly instead of buying a regular nail glue, I bought ultra fast drying. On the bottle, it says it will dry within 5 seconds. I think it's so true! After I pressed on the bow, I went straight to work. It's been four days and the bow is still intact! I was scared it would come off or I'll lose it. In the beginning, I was so cautious how I used my hands. I didn't want it to get stuck somewhere, and then poof it came off. With my work, I don't have the time to be cautious. I have to dig my hands into a lot of papers, medical records. I'm amazed it never came off! Lastly, the bow is extremely sturdy. All the digging and carrying the huge medical records, the bow never broke. I honestly don't know how one of the bows broke through shipping. Out of all the nail arts, I probably got the most compliment on this!

* Comes in a variety of styles, they even have butterflies, and colors.
* 3D.
* Sturdy.
* Easy to use.
* Can be re-used.
* Does not break or come off during the usage.
* Fun!!!
