I bought these Perrie Little Mix Press-on Nails by Elegant Touch in the Christmas sale and then completely forgot about them (I’m not quite sure how as they are sooooo cool!) It was only when in New Look the other day I noticed they had the same nails on sale for £3 again and thought “they look awesome, I’ll buy them” when I remembered that I already had! I’ve blogged before about some of the Little Mix make up range and really liked the Perrie lipstick. This time I’m having a play with her false nails which are this gorgeous glittery galaxy pattern.
I’ve only worn false nails once before (check them out here) so was interested to see how they would compare. This set came complete with 24 plastic nails of various sizes and designs, adhesive tabs to stick them on with, a nail file and instructions leaflet – pretty good for £3 eh!
I used adhesive nail tabs when I last wore false nails, so knew what I was doing and completely planned out which plastic nails and tabs would go on which fingers, to save fiddling around when you’ve got half a hand of long plastic nails on!
I love the look of the Perrie Little Mix Press-on Nails. I think the black / green glitter and blue / purple galaxy nails work really well together and it’s fun to mix the two designs up however you like. It’s a shame that there isn’t exactly one of each size of each design though, as I quite fancied having each of my hands completely symmetrical but there weren’t the correct nails to do this. I really like the fact that these Press-on Nails allow me to wear really glittery nails without the pain of removing the polish afterwards (urgh worst thing ever!!!)
The Elegant Touch nail tabs seem to be a lot sturdier than the Nailene Adhesive Tabs and Primark nails which I wore last time. The tabs seem stickier, and I haven’t experienced the nails moving around or digging backwards into my cuticles as I use my hands, which I did before (which is lucky as that really hurt, and also meant the nails weren’t very secure and pinged off a lot!)
