If you're a sports fan, you'll know that college football is coming to an end. And while my Florida Gators had a HORRIBLE (4-8!) season, any fan knows, there's always next year! However, next year I'll be wearing these University Nail Pax nail wraps and hopefully they'll have a better season! lol
Nail Pax is an officially licensed line of custom designed collegiate nail wraps. They currently offer wraps to 49 of the major universities. But, don't worry if your University isn't represented, you can fill out they're "suggest a school" form and they will try to add it to their list!
University Nail Pax FL Gators nail wraps come packaged in a cute box with a peek-a-boo window to lets you see the design.
Once you unfold the sides of the box, you will find: one sheet of nail wraps, a nail file and instructions (the second sheet of wraps is tucked away under the instructions). Each box contains 32 individual wraps in several different sizes. You get 12 wraps with a team logo "polka dot" pattern and 4 (larger) wraps with a single logo near the cuticle.

I found these to be a little tricky to apply, not as bad as the NCLA wraps but not a effortless as the OMG nail strips. They have an adhesive backing, so you start at the cuticle and slowly smooth it down the nail, if you mess up you can simply pull it off and try again. Like the NCLA wraps, these are made of a thicker material that doesn't seem to bend well over highly curved nails. Unlike the NCLA wraps, I found that heating them with a blow dryer (for about 10 seconds) they became much easier to apply and the wrinkles were easier to smooth out. Top coat is not necessary with these, the adhesive is quite tacky and will stick to your nails very well (and they adhere even better if they were heated before application).
