I've never really been big on fake nails. I've tried a few in the past, but I've never come out the other end wanting to give it another go anytime soon. For some reason these glittery nails caught my eye - I'm a magpie! I don't know what made me decide to pick these up, but I'm so glad I did. Since wearing them, I've had loads of compliments on where I got them from. Because of that, I thought it'd be best to write a post on what I thought of them, the wear time, and where they're from.
I actually picked these up from Savers, a discount shop in the UK, for a bargain price of £2.99. I actually haven't found these there since, but I have directed people that way when they've complimented me on my nails when I've been on the tills at work! Just like most Elegant Touch nails, these come with nail glue, nail stickers and a nail file. You can choose between the glue or the stickers depending on how long you want them on for. I usually file around the ends of the fake nails a touch, just to smooth the plastic down. I make sure my nails are oil free with a swipe of nail varnish remover pads and then I'm good to go. After working out which size nails to use, I dab a little glue on each nails and press way. It's really that simple! They dry pretty much instantly, but too quick that you can't press the nail on in time. I'm not that great at wearing fake nails, and these nails are more on the long side! If you're not into super long nails these may be a little hard to handle, but after a couple of days I was used to them. Despite them being a little too long for me, they're way too pretty for me to not wear them because of that!
These lasted on my nails for 5 days before they began to pop off, but they're easy to reapply if needs be. I didn't do a lot in the 5 days of wear, so if you're a busy bee then maybe bring the glue on the go in case of any naughty nails trying to make their escape. If you can't find them at your local Savers they're worth the £6 that they're on sale for currently on Asos.
These are currently on sale at Asos for £6.00!
