I've been wearing a lot of fake nails lately, but I thought I would try a different brand, as I have been wearing Nailene. I saw these in Boots and died, they are perfect. They were about £8.50 and they are a mix of spotty and matte nails, by House of Holland - Elegant Touch. You get 24 individual nails in a pack with nail glue and a nail file.
I decided to wear them for my birthday (which was on boxing day) and my birthday night out, they were easy to apply, with the nail glue included in the pack which is always helpful! I used half black matte and half dotty but you could do any combination, however I did realize there is only about 6 or 7 dotty nails compared with a lot more matte. They come in a variety of sizes, some of which were too big for my nails, but I managed to find ones that fit. They were very long when I first applied them, and they took a bit of filing down, which is quite difficult with the addition of the coloured 3D balls.
I wore them for about 3 days any they stayed on well, this included two days of working in a clothes department. One nail came off during work but I was able to stick it back on, it is always a pain when they're only press on nails not a gel or shellack so of course they are going to come off if you're doing a lot. They finally came off on new years day, which in total means they lasted 6 days in total, which isn't bad and I still love them.
Many people thought I had even done these nails myself, which is nice to hear, but thankfully I didn't have to stick on individual balls onto my fingers! Have you tried any other of the Henry Holland nail sets or any other brand which have great designs?
Happy New Year! :) x
