To Fake Or Not To Fake

I've never wanted to try fake nails! In my head they looked tacky and would probably fall off throughout the first day of wearing them. However recently when I asked some of my friends if they'd had gel nails done at a salon and they replied telling me that they were fake nails from none-other than Primark, I couldn't believe it! I had to be a sheep and try them for myself. I picked up 2 packs, one pack ombre blue with glitter over the darkest part and the other an aztec sort of print that are a bit more out there and that I am yet to try. 

As a newby to false nails I thought the application would be really difficult but in fact the thing I found most difficult was (as those of you who follow me on Twitter may know) trying to get the glue out of the tube! FYI, you have to cut the top off! 

I started off by finding the right size nail for my nails and laying them out so that I could apply them all in one go. The pack comes with 24 nails so there should be nails to fit every nail size in there. I used the glue that came in the pack and it is seriously strong stuff, it had set within half a second, no joke! The nails aren't exceptionally long so don't feel unnatural on the nails and don't disrupt daily activities like I thought they might have. 

The day after I applied them I did hit my hand on the table at school really hard by accident and the thumb nail pinged off across the room *awkward*! Luckily I had anticipated this and has the glue in my bag. Definitely take the glue with you when you go out! 

(Please excuse the middle nail, its not as close to the cuticle as it should be)

For only £1 these are such a bargain. They are quick to apply and last for ages. The only downside is the limited number of nice designs. They do a beautiful plain lilac pack as well as french tips but there are some utterly revolting ones too! For £1 it would be rude not to give them a go!

I'd love to know what you think of these or any fake nails.
