Hello everyone! So I was clearing out and packing my Helmer last night and I chanced upon these fake nails that I’ve yet to use. I bought these months ago on sg_beauty community on Livejournal. I think I got these for $5. I don’t think these are available in Singapore unless you order from Drugstore(?), I’m not so sure either sorry!
This set includes 24 fake nails in 12 sizes and it includes a mini plastic cuticle pusher, a mini filer and a pink gel glue. Because I neglected this set in my Helmer, the gel glue was dried up when I tried to use it so I replaced it with a normal nail glue which I got from PNC Traders.
Anyway, let’s do a quick jump to my review now!
Very affordable. (Well, at the price I got them for; not the retail price!)
These are very easy to use and the instructions on the back of the box was very clear, I like that they included a mini cuticle pusher and a filer.
I like how they did something out of the norm, which is to do a classic french tip design; unlike other brands that comes up with too much dazzling and complicated designs for all 10 fingers.
Since I was using a different glue, I was able to peel them off without soaking my hands in pure acetone. (I believe that is a waste of nail polish remover and it’s harmful to my hands too!)
It came off pretty easily. I was packing my closet too last night and all I did was to hang up clothes and fold them and the nail on my thumb came off. Maybe it was because I didn’t use the gel glue that was provided.
The nail tips were too wide and big for my nails. When I found the perfect size for my cuticle area, my nails were too long for the french tips to cover so I had to use a wider and bigger french tip to cover my entire nail, which made it look pretty fake. I had to paste the nail further out from my cuticle so that it entirely covers my natural nails.
The glue that I used was actually visible under the fake nails which made it look kinda cheap. Well, maybe applying a sheer pink polish underneath might solve this problem.
Alright, that’s all for my review! I hope this was helpful! 🙂
