A Faff Free French Manicure!

I use to love getting my nails done professionally, the only thing I didn’t like was the cost, it became expensive having my nails done all the time and I realised that I could be spending that extra £40 a month/every 3 weeks on something else.

I then turned to Primark’s £1 nails that I would apply for an occasion such as a meal out or a get together, they’re staying power isn’t great and they don’t look the best but they do the job for a day or so!

The other day I was in Boots and I came across their selection of glue on nails, I wanted some that would look like my own nails, so that it looked as though I had done them myself! I came across these ‘Better than salon nails’ by a brand called kiss..

I went for a petite length French Manicure as I think this looks classy and simplistic and goes with everything! I applied these a week an a half ago and although they’re starting to wear a little and I’ve had to re-stick one or two..they still look pretty good and for £7 you can’t really go far wrong!

The great thing about these nails is that I didn’t have to file, shape or trim them before applying them as the petite size fits my nails perfectly! The pack came with a variety of different sizes and a pretty strong nail glue! These only took about 10-15 minutes to apply and are therefore a great quick-fix!

An added bonus of applying these nails is that each nail comes attached to a plastic tab, this means that you can line it up perfectly before securing it onto your nail, you can then gently twist the tab to remove it!

If you want to do your nails but are rubbish like me or simply don’t have the time then I would 100% recommend these nails! Not only do they look great and last well but they are really strong and impossible to chip which is great for someone like me who goes to the gym and is generally clumsy!

Find these nails HERE , you can also get loads of different colours, designs and lengths so have a look!

Do you ever buy DIY Nails?

    These look adorable! I’ve only ever had my nails painted as unfortunately they’re super weak so they wouldn’t handle acrylics but these look so simple and cute that I might just have to try them out at that price!

      Thank you Alice! Mine are the same, acrylics wreck my nails but these didn’t, it might be worth giving them a try x x

    Omg girl your a lifesaver, the past couple of days I’ve attempted to paint my nails and literally an hour later they are chipped and look bloody awful. Definitely going to give these a shot and they look fab and like you did them yourself!

    I’ve recently started getting annoyed with forking out so much money each month on getting my nails done, so this post was super handy! x
