The first thing I want to talk about is the designs. They are beautiful! The designs I got were Rococo Gold, Bow Ties, and Vintage Rose:
website. Right now they have a Kickstarter campaign to launch three different designs. It's best to follow them on Twitter if you want to keep on top of new designs as it can be a little confusing to start with.
Vintage Rose was my favourite. It has such a Cath Kidston vibe. Unfortunately, because it was the first set I tried, I made the mistake of not adding a top coat and the ends crumpled up within a few hours of wearing them. Silly me! (Click here for a video on how to achieve a similar look with nail polish.)
Rococo Gold actually inspired an entire video! I thought they would be perfect for a black and gold themed 'Little Black Dress | Completed Look'. I include a mini how-to in the video. But I will also go in to that in a moment.
The final design is the Bow Ties. I was not too impressed by this design. As you can see in the photo, the bow design is part cut off on the last three fingers. Also I personally really dislike the colour. I would never wear this shade of pink. But each to their own!
Now for application. It's super simple and super quick:
The nail wraps with a top coat lasted for 5 days, which I definitely didn't expect. I thought they would only last for a day or two. To remove them you just use nail polish remover.
I really do love these nail wraps and I'll probably buy some more in the future. The only issue I initially had with them was the price. Obviously I don't know how much it is to manufacture nail wraps so I don't know how much they should be, but before trying them I would have been hesitant to spend $12/£8 on a one use set. However, they are a quality product and like I said, I'll probably buy them again.
