Press-on nails have come a long way since I last used them! When I was a teenager (far too long ago!) I used to wear badly fitting false nails all the time, and customise them with my own nail art. Thinking back (thank goodness this was pre-interwebs and camera phones - way back in the dark ages otherwise known as the 90s) they probably looked pretty horrific! Not any more though, as lots of companies are making nail tips already glammed up with trendy nail art, and they're much better than they were back in the day!
I was contacted recently by Elegant Touch who have collaborated with Henry Holland at House of Holland to create nine super hot nail designs. Each kit includes 24 nails in 10 different sizes, a nail file, nail glue and instructions. I was sent three designs in Heartbreaker, Zig Zag Starburst and Get Nailed, and I had such fun playing with them! Even the packaging looks swish, each set in it's own little 'house'.
First up, is Heartbreaker. These are a long stiletto style, too long for me for everyday (I don't know how you long-taloned ladies get anything done!) but I would definitely enjoy wearing them on a night out. This design is so classy, very Lana Del Rey (I want to be her) and bang on trend.
The next two sets are a more manageable length in an almond shape - something I've been wanting to try. Get Nailed consists of a set of plain white nails with a black frame, and black letter stickers to customise them with. So cute! I really liked them plain but once I added the stickers I fell in love! I used tweezers to peel off and apply the stickers, and they weren't tricky at all. Think of all the hashtags... #YOLO
