Lets start with the rant......
No matter what kinds of nail polish I buy, whether it is high end or dirt cheap I can not keep it on my nails for longer than a day!!! My left index nail chips within an hour every single time!!!
I have tried base coats, top coats, one coat of polish, 3 coats of polish, wearing gloves (haha) but it will not stay on.
My family often commented on how regularly I
changed my nail colour and it was just an attempt to keep them nice looking.
I have had acrylic nails in the past but in the end I couldn't be bothered with the hour long appointment and the £25 hole in my purse.
So one day I was walking around boots and I came across the glue on nails. Usually I just walk on by after wasting money on ones that flipped off everytime I tried to do my flies up!!!But for some reasons these caught my eye....
They are the Broadway Nails Real Life Natural Nails in Short. I think these set me back about £4.
They are just completely clear nails although with the shadow of your natural nail underneath them, they look as though they have the white tips.
I wouldn't recommend buying these if you wanted nails to just slap on and out the door, but if, like me, you want to use them as a base for long lasting polish, they are perfect!!!
In fact, my polish lasts so long, that I get bored with the colour before I need to redo them. I must say, the colour wears off the very tips of the nails but this is by no means as noticeable as a big old chip.
The nails themselves also last really long. I can usually wear a set for about two weeks, although I think I read somewhere that you should only wear them for 7-10 days.
So I am now going to paint them. It is a choice between OPI Mod about you or OPI Melon of Troy???
I will keep you posted!!
