Trippy Talons

My mum works for a well known airline. This means that I'm always getting exciting treats from around the world! One gift I got recently was the Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips in Kitty, Kitty

Nail wraps seem like a good idea to me; I'm not clever enough to do amazing designs on my own nails, can't afford to get them done all the time and don't want to wreck my nails by sticking on fakes! This way I can have super cool nails that actually last.


1. Make sure your nails are really REALLY clean and buff them up to make sure they're smooth.

2. Find the right size nail wrap, pop it on and smooth it down.

3. Here's the slightly tricky part: using a nail file, remove the excess from the tips of your nails.

Apologies for the cruddy photo, but here is the end result!

I TOTALLY LOVE THEM! I was in a shop and the sales assistant asked me where I 'got them done'- result! They also lasted for the full 7 days without even a chip (and I ALWAYS manage to chip my nails within hours).

Loving nail wraps- definitely going to get some more.
