I bought two sets of these Nail Rock
wraps while I was back home … I’ve forgotten if I bought them in Boots or Topshop, though…
I’d never tried nail wraps before so I thought I’d give them a go. And this is where I make my confession – I’m not very girly and I’m not very good with ‘girly skills’. When growing up I didn’t really play around with my hair or make-up, so I didn’t really learn how to do cool things to look nice. Nail wraps are a new thing, but still, I have no idea how to do this kind of thing so it was all very new to me!
To put them on, you have to prepare the nail by buffing it, then wiping it with the wipe that’s included in the pack. This part is fairly simple. It’s when you go to put the wrap on that it gets difficult.
I don’t know if my nails are particularly small but even though I tried to match up the right wrap with the right nail, the wrap was still way too big. You have to cut them down to size and I didn’t really have the right scissors to do the job well. You can see above that the curve of the wrap isn’t really even.
I only put on two since I thought that any more would be an overkill.
Once on, they lasted quite a while. They could have lasted a whole week but I took them off yesterday (after having them on for 5 days) because the edges were getting a little frayed and I wanted a different look on my nails.
The pros to these are that they look really effective if done well, and that they last a long time. The cons would be that they are really hard to put on and are even harder to get a perfect finish on. I have more of the same design in the pack still, and I also have some polka dot ones, so I’ll see if I get the hang of it as I use them more. At this point in time though, I think I wouldn’t buy them again. At the end of the day, it’s just easier to paint your nails.
