I've never felt compelled to write a review before but after trying Nailease instant manicures I just thought I would have to share my experience with you guys.
Many of my lunch breaks at work involve me going the Boots (a UK pharmacist) next door. This usually means that I trawl through all the nail/eyelash/makeup related items. Mostly nail stuff in case it would benefit you lot for recommendations.
The other day I came across these manicure strips. Usually I'm pretty sceptical of these things because I like making little arty things of my own on my talons but at £3.00 I couldn't say no.
They're advertised as being manis for 'girls on the go' which would make you think it would be super quick to apply. No no dear friends this takes a little bit of time!! I got through a whole episode of UK Masterchef before I had finished mine.
Every sticker is made of a solid adhesive/nail varnish layer which you place upon a naked nail. You can stretch them horizontally or vertically to make them wrinkle free but trust me this is super hard when you only have one hand to do it with.

The next day I went to the gym (second time in about a year) and when I washed my hair lo and behold the stickers started unsticking and got stuck to my hair!!!! After two days (and one Sally Hansen InstaDri coat on initial application later) they pretty much look awful... nice comments from the boss as always (she despairs if I ever have a nail design on for more than 2 days) but even she agreed they looked a bit ropey.
|This is what they look like after 3 days. SHOCKING!!|
What do you think nail buds? Have any of you ever tried them? Maybe there is a better recommendation?
