Rather excitingly Kate and Will’s second baby – Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana – was born this weekend! I love the Royal family and was glued to my TV and social media to follow the story and get a first glimpse of our new little Princess. I decided this week’s Midweek Manicure should definitely be Princess themed (I did one when Prince George was born too!) and thought these cute pink and white polka dot false nails from Finishing Touches were perfect.
I spotted these nails over the weekend in the clearance section of Superdrug for only 49p! Now ok, that’s not a very Princess-y price, but the sweet baby pink colour and white polka dot pattern is just adorable and oh so appropriate!
The set comes with 24 false nails in 12 different sizes, along with 24 adhesive tabs in 6 different sizes so there should be something to fit everyone. I have quite small nails and often struggle with sets like these and find all the options are too big. However the smallest nails in this kit are too tiny for my pinkies so it would be a good buy for fellow small hands, or younger girls. Hurrah!
The nails are so simple to apply – just choose which nails best suits yours, line them up for both hands and then attach the right sized tabs to your nails. I made the mistake of having just moisturised my hands so some of the tabs had a bit of a job sticking to a few of my nails properly, but a quick wipe over with a cotton wool pad removed any excess product and the tabs stuck down no problem after that. Once the tabs were all firmly in place I peeled off the protective top and fixed the false nail in place, holding it tight for a few seconds until it was firmly in place.
I think the nails look really pretty on and stick on nice and firmly. They definitely fit my nails better than others I’ve tried and as a result feel much more secure. One did come off after I washed my hands a couple of hours later but it was easy to grab another tab and stick it back in place, and the others held on tightly.
