Fake your way to Acrylic Nails; the new 'acrylics'

So, the other day I left one of my jobs after two years of not been able to have my nails done (they didn't allow nail varnish or false nails of any sort). I have an entire collection of Nails Inc colours, so these two years have been pretty dull. As soon as my last shift finished, I purchased myself what looked to be some cheap false nails, just to satisfy my cravings after two long, hard, dull years. I used to get acrylics done, but I really don't think it's worth it, they actually destroy your nails and make them as thin and weak as paper, it's a horrible feeling. Most people are very dubious about false nails; 'they come off all the time', 'they look fake' 'they look cheap'... etc etc. Well this really isn't the case with what i've found so I had to share this with you all.

They were hung opposite the shampoos in a tiny section of Morrisons Supermarket (with a few other nail items) and cost £1.49.

Inside you get instructions, nail glue - which I thought would be rubbish with the price being so cheap but it is so good!, nails and a nail file! For such a cheap price I wouldn't expect for it to include glue or a nail file, let alone both!

You get twenty nails, as you can see they come in a variety of sizes.

The nails are in a french colour and a really natural one, yet shiny so they look pristine.

Ten minutes later, this is the final result. I honestly think they look better than my acrylics ever did, AND they didn't even cost the price of a sandwich. They've stayed on for a week so far.
The glue is extremely strong, I made sure I put loads on and fully pushed them down onto my nails, I did apply a lot of pressure. I will carry the glue around with me just in case, but I can deal with them falling off a few times for such a good price, even my acrylics used to fall off; and there's no repairing them!
The great thing is, if you don't want these in a french colour, just simply paint them!

Because I am so impressed, I purchased two more designs from Ebay, these were £1.25 for 100 nails!
I can't wait for these colours to arrive!

Have you ever used false nails?
Or do you prefer acrylics?

  4. Your nails look lovely! I have always been skeptical of these types of nails in store, and wondered if they looked as good as nail salon nails. After seeing this post though, i may need to give them a try :)
