Today I'm here with a nail post and it's on falsies by Elegant Touch. This 'Totally Bare Mixed Nails' bumper set, in particular, caught my eye as it includes three different shapes - Stilletto, Oval and Square. As I'm not a regular false nail wearer, I thought this would be an ideal set to try out to decide which shape I prefer. If you do know what shape is your fav, then these sets also come individually with each shape too.
As the packaging suggests, the set includes 216 nails - random, I know! Within the 216 nails there are 10 different sizes of each style. Herein lay my problem...... I found it very difficult to find nails to correctly fit my own nails. I'm not sure if it's that I have particularly small nails beds but I found them to be huge! See the below pic. So a lot of the nails within the kit went to waste.
Included in the handy, plastic carry case is glue (which is meant to give "fantastic results for up to 10 days") and a little nail file. The set did not last me 10 days, more like 4, when 2/3 started popping off, which is when I decided to remove them. I am quite handsy though!! In saying that, the glue was adhesive enough to make them feel secure enough once dried, so would be perfect for an event, night out, few day long wedding etc.
I do love the concept of the set, being that it gives you the option of trying different styles, but unfortunately I just found the nails themselves far too large. The absolute smallest was the only to fit my pinky! Again, this may be just because I have naturally small nails.
Other than that, I found the nails to be quite durable, the glue lasted relatively long (as included set glue tends to go) and nail polish lasted really well on them also.
This set retails for €12.74 on >FEEL UNIQUE< or they are available from McCabes, Cara Pharmacy, Total Health Pharmacy, Shaws Dept Stores and independent pharmacies nationwide.
