This time not a review but a haul from my favourite nail supply, Born Pretty Store! I actually purchased most of these items with the points I collected on their site! If you purchase with them and add a text review or images to their site you receive discount points you can then later on use to purchase items. A really great service!
Here’s what I got!
- 500pcs Clear Full Nail Tips – $6,02
- 240 Nail Tabs – $6,35
- Nail Tip Cutter – $3,76
- 2 pcs Nail Art Practice Finger -$2,36
First up are the nail tips! They range in size from 0 to 9 so you get 10 different sizes. In each bag there’s 50 tips so in total you get 500 pieces. The quality of these is very good! I’m extremely pleased with them, I’ve had an absolute blast using them. At the bottom of this post you can see a nail set I created with these tips.
This is a cutter specially used to cut the nail tips down to size. Using a regular clipper is fiddly so I got this with my order. It works very good and I love the pink latex handle!
These are nail tabs you use to attach nail tips to your natural nails. You take them off the strip, place them on your nails and remove the brown paper. You’re left with a clear adhesive which is very strong and doesn’t damage your nails. I prefer to use this to nail glue since it’s less harsh on your nails and you can re-use your tips afterwards. With glue you’re more likely to damage your natural nail and the nail tips themselves. I thought the nail tabs would last two days tops since you’re meant to soak them off in hot water. I thought after a bath my nails would be gone! I’m glad to say this is not the case. These last more than a week on me, maybe even around 2 weeks!
These look pretty creepy right? That’s what my boyfriend thought at least! The left nail finger is used to insert nail tips into (I’ve put a clear nail tip inside so you can see) and the other already has a nail. I thought these might be useful for nail tutorials, I’m not sure yet! We’ll see. I thought they were fun so that’s why I got them.
This is what I created with the nail tips! You can hardly see they’re not my natural nails, even in person when you look up close it’s hard to tell. Wearing them is very comfortable, they feel like my own nails! Polishes I used were: American Apparel Office, China Glaze Sunset Sail, Barry M Mushroom and a black striper.
