When it comes to nails, I’m not a huge lover of varnishes as it seems to just chip off as soon as I apply it and I end up taking it off within an hour of putting it on so whenever there is a way to avoid using Nail varnish, you can be sure that I’ll check it out. I use nail wraps more than anything but find that they take too long to apply and can sometimes look really cheap so when I got my hands on these Elegant touch ‘House of Holland’ falsies, I was so excited!
As far as stick on, DIY nails - I’ve never had much luck as I’m quite heavy handed, they just seem to pop off but when I bought the ‘ROYAL EXPLOSION’ Nails for my cousins wedding back in May I was extremely surprised at the quality and sustainability of them and have gone on to buy 2 more packs!
The nail packs come with 24 nails in 10 different sizes meaning that they are pretty universal and should fit most nails, mine are quite big so I use most of the bigger nails in the pack to ensure they look more natural. There are little numbers on the back of the nail too so it makes matching the sizes to each finger even easier. They also come with glue and a tiny file to make any adjustments to your own nails or the falsies.
I used the ‘BOOM’ pack for just a day but during that day I was picking Millie up, eating, opening bags, texting, using a camera etc etc and had no problems with the length of them or the application. Each and every one of the nails remained in place and I even had a tough time removing them that night ready for work the next day - they are super super glued on! I went on to use the ‘ZIG ZAG STARDUST’ nails when we went to Brighton last week and applied them in the car on the way down - showing how easy it is to apply them - and they lasted the whole week. I took them off Friday morning for work and again, they were tough to remove. One did come loose and popped off Thursday night though but other than that, I can’t fault the durability of them at all!
