Primark False Nails

My right index finger nail ripped to the point where it was so short it hurt.  I tried in vain to hold it together with polish for about a week or so but it got annoying so I just cut all my nails down.  They're so short, I hate it!  They look really ropey at the minute so I want to cover them up until they've grown a bit more, I can't even paint them without getting polish everywhere at the moment...more ends up on my skin than what nails I have left.  I came across some of my old nail pics and my nails are so much longer than I seem to be able to get them lately...might have to look into gel overlays or Shellac/Gelicure again.

These come in a range of colours and designs, including metallic cheetah, gold, union jack, french and of course, this red and they're only 99p a box, which includes glue and 24 nails.  I always have a stash of these kind of glue on nails at home (just in case), is that really vain?

In terms of sizing they were actually ok for me, I tend to find that with stick on nails anyway. They're mid length and square.  I did have to file these at the top as they were a little bit jagged, which wasn't ideal as it removed a little bit of the colour from the tips but nothing noticeable - at least not to the normal, everyday non-nail-obsessed person (I am not this person).  The glue was your standard nail glue and worked fine, actually I quite liked the glue, it was strong, I had these on from Sunday to Tuesday before I pinged one off and that was doing some particularly strenuous lifting and carrying at work.  The rest of my nails stayed in place until I removed them on Thursday.

All in all, I'd say if you're looking for a set of false nails for a night out, or a few days to tide you over like me then these would be fine but if you want something long lasting or hard wearing, you might be better trying something else.  These would probably be pretty good if you wanted to practice at nail art or something on longer nails or you were doing a fashion show on a bit of a budget too.  For 99p and wearing them to cover up my own shoddy nails I really can't complain.


  1. Bargain! My false nails never last longer than about a day. =(

  2. 99p is so amazing for false nails!! I dread to think what they do to your real nails. I have naturally strong, long nails and false nails destroyed mine. Then by chance my skin was crappy at the same time so I started taking a healthy glow vitamin for healthy skin, hair and nails. My nails grew back stronger and better looking than ever before. They just would not break. The supplement was Natures Own Balance & Glow and you can't get it in the UK. But I checked the main ingredients and superdrugs skin, hair and nails pill seem to be almost as good. Maybe give them a go?! Xxxx

  3. 99p what a bargain! I haven't worn falsies in a while because I always tend to regret it when my nails are looking worse for wear x :-)

  4. What a great price - certainly worth a try. I've never tried false nails before so these would really tempt me into trying!

  5. Such a good price, they look lovely! Will definitely be picking some up!x

  6. Wow these look so real. I am definitely trying them out ASAP! xo

  7. ohh I haven't been playing around with false nails for years! nice<3
    would you like to follow each other?

  8. Lovely! was going to buy these today but when ever I Purchase false nails they never stay on for long no matter which glue I use.

  9. I love how they look on! :) xx
