Today I have a bit of a different review – two years back I did my first Firmoo review and they recently reached out to me again. They’re a company that sells prescription glasses and sunglasses at incredibly affordable rates. I jumped at the chance as I wear my Firmoo glasses daily to this day and would recommend them to anyone. In fact a few months ago we placed an order for my fiancé (for prescription glasses and prescription sunglasses) who is thrilled with his purchase. Let’s take a look!
This is the pair I picked out, DBSN62225 in the colour Tortoise (currently not available in this pattern). The order process is very easy and straight-forward. You can upload a photo of yourself to virtually “try on” the glasses and see how they would look on your face. This feature is fairly accurate, however with this pair they looked slightly smaller on the try-on feature than how it appeared in person – with my previous pair this was 100% accurate. My tip is to always make sure to check the measurements and compare with the pair you already own. Once you’ve selected your pair (there are hundreds to choose from, the styles are endless!) you simply input your prescription details and then you have the option to select a few features such as lens thickness, lens colour, coatings e.g. UV, Anti-Scratch, etc.
From the moment I placed my order it took exactly 7 days for my pair to arrive at my doorstep which is ridiculously fast! As always it came with a sturdy case, cleaning wipe and a tiny screwdriver (not pictured) which is a handy tool to have lying around. The pair I picked out cost only $19 which had me somewhat sceptical. This included the lenses too, so I would be worried that the quality would not be as great. However, I can say that they look and feel great and sturdy and are very well finished, they don’t look cheap at all and the most important thing, my prescription and vision is absolutely perfect!
Here’s how they look on! While I was hoping for a slightly smaller pair and a lighter tortoise colour, I do really like them and they are very comfortable to wear. The frames are big enough that the rim doesn’t interfere with my vision which I definitely like. I have astigmatism in both eyes, meaning my lens does not have a perfect curvature so I need a correction so my vision is not as blurred. Firmoo is definitely my go-to place to buy new glasses as I love switching up my frames without needing to spend a fortune.
Of course I had to do some nail art inspired by my glasses. I’ve been wanting to try tortoiseshell nails for years but always felt too intimidated. I still felt intimidated attempting these and they by no means turned out perfect but it was really fun to try this technique. I don’t have a good explanation on how I did these, however it involves thinning out polishes with lots of top coat and lots of layering to create this effect.
Polishes used: China Glaze Mahogany Magic, China Glaze Phat Santa, China Glaze Papaya Punch, OPI The “IT” Color, Messy Mansion Carbon, Glisten & Glow Top Coat.
You can purchase Firmoo glasses via their website. From time to time they have really incredible offers and discounts like B1G1.

I’ve had great experiences with Firmoo and love my glasses so would definitely recommend this store!
