Since giving my nails a break from acrylics and gels, they’ve grown a lot stronger and healthier, so I decided it was time for something different. I’ve recently seen a lot of hype around nail transfers and false nails, but for a while shrugged it off as they reminded me of being ten years old and sticking on garish false nails only for them to fall off again in the space of a couple of hours.
While at fashion week, I was introduced to House of Holland’s nail collaboration with Elegant Touch and fell head over heels with the super cool designs. I picked out the nails named Thorn In My Side, which feature pretty 3D roses and a black and green leaf and thorn design. The set includes 24 nails in 10 sizes, a nail file and nail glue. The nails are really easy to apply, too – simply add a blob of glue to your nail bed and carefully place the false nail on top, gently pressing down. They took a while to get used to at first as they’re longer than I’d normally go for and I’ve never worn stiletto shaped nails before, but I’ve had them on for 3 days so far and experienced no problems!
They come in a wide range of pretty designs, perfect for a special occasion and cheaper than going to a salon. They retail at £7.99-£8.99 and are available in Boots.
Post to you soon! xoxo
