Primark Nail Wraps.

I picked up some nail wraps from Primark ages ago but never got round to trying them. I've had a little experiment with them today though. I went for the Primark ones before going for a more expensive brand to see how easy they were to fit and how good they looked.




Primark - £1

They were pretty easy to apply and cut down, the filing was a little tricky if the wrap wasn't stuck properly but overall I think they are quite cute. I love the flowery pattern!

I had a few issues with these though - one being that the shape of the wraps are very strange and I had to use what I assume was made for the index finger for my thumb. I did try cutting some of the bigger ones down to see if they would fit my nails better, but it just didn't work and ended up quite messy. There were some really big fitting wraps in the pack too which would only really fit my big toe! Plus you only get one set of wraps (or one set that are actually wearable) - I would have liked to try another attempt to get them slightly neater. Having said that I think the pack is £1 so maybe I should stop being so tight and by some different varieties. 

Overall though I think these would be fab for a night out/Christmas party. They are really quick and it's so nice not having to wait a year for the varnish to dry - plus no nail art to time consume either. I would probably recommend doing a layer of top coat on these just so they don't peel off too easy as they aren't the stickiest of things. But they are certainly well worth a £1. I will be picking up some other patterns/designs next time I'm in Primark. Who needs expensive alternatives?!

Have you tried these or any other brands?
