primark french nails


primark french nails: £1

I bought these on a whim the other day from Primark the price was its main selling point really. But I was impressed by the packaging, I do honestly like Primark's Beauty range's packaging. I tried these out to wear to London on Tuesday morning as I wanted something quick before I went. The nails themselves are good, They are a flesh toned beigey nail colour, with a printed white tip. A nice variety of sizes and fits come in each box. I have tiny hands so I worried they might not fit. I was impressed with how strong and not flimsy they felt unlike some false nails. I was pretty impressed to be honest.

Now I'd show you a photo of them on but before I even had a chance to take any detailed photographs, most of them fell off. Two were gone before I even got to London that day. The glue is terrible, possibly the worst I've ever used, it doesn't last long or dry very quickly. I knew I should have used my own nail glue but I didnt think in my rush to leave the house!

Id recommend these if you just wanted just the nails and had your own glue (seriously HIGHLY recommend the Nailene Ultra Quick Dry) for a measly quid you get a full set of French Nails. Just dont trust the cheapy glue! French nails in Boots/Superdrug are around the £5 mark, but obviously other places do sell them a bit cheaper. But I think its good value for money and I'll definitely be purchasing them again.

  2. I've actually been pleasantly suprised by Primani Make-Up, as long as you don't expect more than what you're playing for then you'll be impressed :)

  5. Bought those nails myself a couple of weeks ago, I didn't use the glue provided either. I use nail glue tabs instead :)

  14. Nailene glue is definitely the best thing for fakes. I love wearing artificial nails, but the second a nail pops off I lose the loving feeling.

  15. i always find that the glue is the main issue with false nails... my hands are small too so i usually have the same problem with the sizes :D

  19. These nails are great! .. I didnt bother using the glue they came with and used the Nailene glue recommended above .. So far they've been on for 3 days and they show no sign of coming off! .. I have also cut them down a little (bit to difficult to get your contacts in and out when you've got claws!) and haven't split like i've found with other ones.
    Definitely worth the price and there are many more designs to choose from (:

  20. I have just bought some Minx-like silver chrome false nails from my local store in Taunton today. They caught my eye whilst I was waiting to pay, and I mentioned them in a blog post. Am yet to try them but am really glad that I read your post first about the pool quality of the glue. I'm a nail technician so I have some really good professional glue. Would love you to take a look at my nail beauty blog if you get the chance. I will take a better look at yours and join as a follower as I find your reviews so useful.
