I finally caved in to an urge for some false nails this week. Instead of going down the acrylic route I opted for some glue on nails. This was for two reasons really, firstly after the last time I had acrylics in September 2008 I vowed to never have them again as they completely ruined my nails, and secondly because I'm on a budget and didnt want to fork out on the salon, infills yada yada yada.
I opted for Nailene So Natural Chip Proof Nail in Petite Length. I dont like long nails if I'm honest, I cant have really long nails anyway because of playing the piano but i do like nice looking nails. I didn't have high hopes for these if I'm honest, I thought they'd look ridiculous and be more effort than they were worth. I couldn't have been more wrong.
I absolutely love them. Ell. Ohh. Vee. Eee. Love them. Talk about easy to apply, it took about 15 minutes to apply from start to finish and I'm sure once I've had a bit of practice I'll be able to apply them even quicker! I had to do no trimming or filing whatsoever, I literally just glued them on! I had a little mishap with the middle finger on my right hand and didn't apply enough glue so it looks a little bit uneven, but I just I can't recommend these enough, I'm hoping they last about 5-7 days then I'll reapply them. I also love the fact that they only have a really small white tip. I've got some more Nailene nails being sent to me by the lovely Milly who picked up some of the 200 active square nails as recommended by Lily as they didnt have any in my boots. I'm going to use these for when I want to wear false nails with my own nail varnishes.
I paid £6.99 for the Nailene So Natural Chip Proof Nails in Petite Length and bought them from Boots.
Random but I can not stop listening to this song:
