Have Primark nailed it?!

My nails suck, big time! despite never being a nail biter or one to partake in much manual labour (lolz) I find that my nails grow just to the tips of my fingers, then get all peely and break, so about 80% of the time since I was 14 or 15 I have relied on false nails. I really wouldn't like to sit and tot up how much money I have spent on what are essentially little squares of plastic over the when I spotted (get it!) what I think are a new range of nails in Primark for £1 I was all over giving them a go! I feel a bit tight saying that I was "disappointed" in anything about these nails, I mean they were a pound so that would be an over exaggeration, buuut after the second day the design had started to wear off, by the fourth a couple of them had snapped across the top and by day 7 they were looking very shabby indeed, which, if I had spent the 7 or 8 pounds that I usually would on a pack from Boots I would have been pretty miffed about so these nails definitely fall into the "you get what you pay for" category in terms of quality. 

With all that said, and not liking to sound negative especially against my beloved Primark I'm imagining that these nails have been designed for the purpose of nights out and the like which they are most definitely fabulous for... so yeah Primark, you nailed it kinda ;) 



  1. Probably shouldn't say this as I am now a nail professional and should say always visit a nail technician for beautiful long lasting nails (which is true ;)) but if you want to use these predesigned nails I would put a top coat on daily to help increase the longevity of them - the design is just a thin ink layer so a good top coat should help with the design lasting. I would also use the nail adhesive stickers by nailene not nail glue and soak off not pull off. Also use cuticle oil to look after your nails xx

    1. Ooh that's a really good idea about the topcoat thanks! :) I'm terrible at looking after my nails and I used to be a beauty therapist I should really know better lol ;)xxx
