Nail Bliss Drama Queen Nails

Happy hump day! Today we have some artificial nails from Nail Bliss called Drama Queen nails. These are really cool, funky designs geared towards the younger or “more daring” set. 

What I love about these is that they are on the short and small side. Most of the artificial nails I have come across are way too wide for my nail bed and insanely long, so these seemed perfect in that way. Also, these came with both adhesive tabs and glue so you can either wear them for a few hours or a day with the adhesive tabs or up to a week if you glue them on. Check ‘em out.


I think these are just so freakin cute with the little skeleton surrounded by gold glitter and the plaid pink, red, black and gold french tip. The nail color itself is like a very milky pale pink. Inside the kit there are 24 nails in 12 different sizes so it was easy for me to find the perfect fit. Those with wide nails beds or who like more than a 1/4 inch of length on their nails might want to look at a different type of nail.


When I applied these I used the glue tabs and I had done quite a few swatches with them so they started to get worn. One thing I don’t like about having such a natural colored nail (except for the tip of course) is that if you don’t have the tab completely flat with no bubbles or creases, it will show, as you can see from this pic on my pointer. It’s definitely doable though, I was just rushed when I did these so I didn’t take the time to get them perfect. Another thing I liked about these is that the base of the nail towards the cuticle matched my natural shape better than some other brands.


These are totally above and beyond what I would ever really wear on my nails but the design was so cute and funky I had to try them out. I love the silver tips and scrolly design! 


I also used adhesive tabs with these and they really didn’t show up at all under the nail which was great. The nail is basically clear, but it’s sprinkled with some glitter and then of course the scroll design. These fit me really well, and again are short and small sized.


Ok I got REALLY lazy here and didn’t file off the edge where these snap off from the application tab they come with, sorry! But they are cute, right?

I just finished book 4 of the Sookie Stackhouse (True Blood) series and will be starting book 5 later on. I’m also watching season 1 on DVD. Can I get a shout out from any Sookie fans out there?

    I really like the skull ones with the plaid tips. So cute! I have the boxed set too and due to laziness and a propensity to drowsiness upon reading, I haven’t finished the 1st book! I should really get on that…

    Oh yea, and I’m watching season 2 on HBO every Sunday :)

    Hi Rachel,

    Yes, the first two have been my favs out of the 4 so far! I hate that I will have to wait for season 2 to come out on DVD once I finish season 1. I might just pony up and order HBO again. I had it back in the Sopranos, OZ, Six Feet Under, Carnival, Deadwood days and actually watched the 1st 2 seasons of Big Love and liked it, but there isn’t a ton on that I want to watch on it.

    These are adorable. I like the design on the silver ones. I have never heard of Sookie Stackhouse. Is it mystery?

    Hi Danica,

    Actually the books are by an author named Charlaine Harris and it’s a series about southern vampires. The main character’s name is Sookie Stackhouse. HBO has a series called True Blood which is based on her books. They are great if you like vampires! FAR better (and more adult)  than Twilight.

    I love these! very cute!

    Oh, I love True Blood! My fiance and I are watching the 1st season now. Tried the books but wasn’t too impressed. I like my novels a bit meatier. But maybe I should give them another try.

    True Blood-the best TV show in my opinion. I read all the books so far, can’t wait for the new one to come out next year. I loved both the show and the books so far, even though they aren’t exactly alike. Can’t wait to see how it all un-folds!!!! :) Love your website by the way, I love seeing the upcoming collections and picking out what colors I want before I buy!

    Love the nails!! will have to try & find some here in Orlando. My fave is the one with the skulls.

    True Blood is one of my favorite shows….I am getting the books, have read book one and starting book two….they are so easy to read also, I breeze right through them. I’m glad I saw the show first because now I get those actors images in my mind when reading the books.

    Hi Mimi,

    The books are definitely not as meaty as say Anne Rice, but definitely a lot meatier than say Twilight (all of which I have read).

    Hi Kristi,

    It’s funny, I have to read something before I watch it. If I see it first I will never read the books. Weird, huh?

    Hi LeiAn,

    They are great summer books because they aren’t too heavy or dense and I am plowing through them fast!

    woo-hoo! I’m a sookie fan! I’ve read #1-8 already, and will hopefully be starting #9 soon. (I’m got a couple other books on the to-read list first). I love em, I’m so addicted. the show is pretty good too, even though it varies from the books.

    as for the nail post, I think the silver/scroll design is really cute.

    I love Charlaine Harris’ books! I’ve read them all also and can’t wait for the next one. I’m also watching the series on HBO. I just crack up when I hear Bill say Sookie. The way it’s drawn out is so adorable. Love both of those nails. Really sassy. Skulls and plaid win out.

    Hi Amanda,

    I have soooo many books to read on my shelves and in my Kindle, but I want to read all of these in a row. The only thing I wish about the books is that Tara was more prominent and the same character as in the show, I love her!

    Hi Lucy,

    I totally love the way her says Sookie also It’s funny because Anne Rice got me totally obsessed with Louisiana and the south. Then married someone from the south and lo and behold, it’s nowhere near as romantic and fabulous as the books make it seem. It’s just damn hot and sticky and miserable! Although I must say when I was in the Garden District in New Orleans years ago on vacation, that part WAS most fabulous. I saw Anne Rice’s mansion and everything, too bad she no longer lives there!

    The skull ones are really special. If I wore fake nails, those would be the ones.

  • July 16, 2009

    These are adorable and perfect for me since I have small nail beds. Something to pick up for a night out perhaps.

    Let me know how you like book #5. I stopped with the fourth one. I am such a True Blood fan. I am caught up with the series and look forward to each Sunday to see what will happen. I have a tiny crush on Vampire Eric. Ok… it’s more than a tiny crush. =)

  • July 16, 2009

    How cool that you got to go to her mansion. When I went to NO a couple of years ago, none of my friends wanted to go so I didn’t get a chance to see it. Oh well… I did party it up on Bourbon Street though so I made up for it. =)

    Hehe, I wouldn’t want to wait either. Season 2 has been really good so far. I have been watching Hung which comes on after, and I like it :) It has an interesting premise.

  • July 19, 2009

    OMG don’t even get me started on the Sookie Stackhouse / True Blood series! I’m a huge Twilight fan and I watched the first season of True Blood last year (because my family got HBO) and enjoyed it. Then I read the books and I’m obsessed! Charlaine Harris is awesome and the books are so interesting to read. I can’t wait until the next one comes out in October. Glad you’re enjoying them too :)
