My relationship with my nails has always been love/hate! I love them when they have been done nicely, hate them naturally!
I have bitten them since I can remember then when I was about 15ish I decided to whack acrylics on them, as if they weren't already awful! Acrylics them followed suit for about 5-6 years. When I was 21, I went through a stage of really looking after my natural nails and they grew but were never quite as strong as plastic! I hate the feeling of my nails bending hence the biting and fake nails! About 18 months ago I moved away from acrylics and went for gels which promised to be nicer to my nails and they are so much better now! I cant believe I wore acrylics for so long even though I cant resist them!
When Revlon offered to send me some of their press on nails from the US, I was dubious. Press on nails to me had only ever lasted a few hours before they pinged off and I'd had to rip them all off. I was intrigued though as US safety standards are different from the UK (our teeth
whitening products are pants!)
A cute little box arrived with 6 whole sets for me to try! Cue the sister being handed a couple to try! They came with nice designs and a bit of bling! I had scheduled a 'nail break' before getting my next set of gels so this was the perfect opportunity to try them!
I am on day 6 of the first set and I am pleased to report, there is no lifting, breaks, damage or anything! They are so strong they feel like acrylics! The only thing that has deteriorated a bit is the airbrush pattern but this is to be expected! I am going to be painting them tonight. The box promises 7-10 days wear which these can easily do!
For the cost of acrylics which keeps creeping up and you can easily pay £35 for in London, these beautys are $7.99. Mine came from the US but you can get these in the UK in Boots and Superdrug for I am sure under the £10 mark. I am planning on picking up a couple more of these in Vegas! Instant manicure that lasts!
