I've seen so many reviews of these nails in the past few months so whilst stood in Boots I thought I'd buy some & give them a try!
|Nails in original length|
As you can see I did feel the need to file them down slightly as they look a little tacky longer.
I have now used the two sets you get with the packet & I held off reviewing them until I did because if you can only use one set it kind of makes them expensive at £6.99 per pack. I am glad to report that I managed to use both sets with a little filing before applying for the second set.
... And do you know what? I think they are fantastic, the glue I personally think was developed at NASA because it's strong bloody stuff! Nailene recommend you wear the nails for a maximum of one week, for the sake of being a dedicated reviewer for you & just lazy in general I decided to see how long they lasted, I kept my 1st set on for 2 weeks & at that stage there wasn't even a sign that they were coming off, I had painted them & needed to redo the colour so decided to replace the set with a new one! Very impressive!
I have to say the only negative thing I picked up on was the tips do wear off, so they can look a little shabby after a couple of days if you're a little rough with your nails like I am. To make up for this I just painted them with a lovely nail polish & fakey nails means no chipping!
Overall I really recommend this brand, I clearly was happy with paying the £6.99 for the pack & I would certainly purchase them again, I found them easyish to apply, there is a risk that your fingers end up being glued together which hurts like hell when you pull them apart but once you get the hang of it they're easy peasy! A very welcome low maintenance addition to my life at the minute, I don't have time to paint my nails 3 times per week like I use to so these just make life easier!
Have you tried these little beauties or recommend any other press on nails!! Let me know!
