Daisy Nails | Paris Hilton for Elegant Touch





















It's pretty much been a month of firsts has March. Not only have I managed to perfect the art of applying cream blush and false eyelashes, as well as writing an OOTD post and lusting after gorgeous clothes I never thought to dream about, I've also managed to apply my own false nails...and love them!

Now, don't laugh, but they're designed by Paris Hilton in collaboration with Elegant Touch - apparently. (Well her name and face is on the box...) I found them for the bargain price of £2.99 in my local TKMaxx one miserable afternoon and, seeing as I'm now technically on my Easter break from uni (and therefore do not have to set one foot over the McThreshold), I thought I'd apply them and see how they fared.

To be perfectly honest I'm mightily impressed. Not only do they look like real nails in that they closely resemble my own natural nail colour and therefore blend in quite well, but they've also worn very well indeed (I must have been given magic glue in the packet) and everyone keeps complimenting me on the gorgeous ditzy daisy print on the tips (that's the reason why I bought them you see).

They apply just like your standard false nail, dab some of the glue onto each fingernail, hold the false nail by the tip and press it lightly onto the natural nail for a few seconds to ensure that the two have bonded...and voila! You get 24 nails of different sizes in the packaging, as well as a nail file, but I didn't use that. I think that if I sized them all correctly I could get two wears out of the whole set, pretty good going for under £3 (I think the RRP is somewhere around £7, but, besides TKMaxx, I've also seen these in Savers).

I think I'm slowly being converted to the false nail trend, although I'm constantly wear of situations where they might snap off, these things must hurt if that were to happen! I also don't think I could have them too long, even with these short ones I find myself clawing to pick things up...but they're just so pretty, how could I resist...?

Are you a false nail fan?

  2. These do look so pretty!
    Even at £7 they're alot cheaper than having your nails done at a salon, I might need to give them a go! :)

  3. On first appearances I would think a big NO purely because Miss Hilton is on the front but they do look really natural and pretty x

    1. These were my initial thoughts exactly! I guess she's just lending her face to the brand...awkward! Haha.

  4. I am not normally a false nails girl, I dream of long nails because I am ashamed to say I bite mine,
    But these are so pretty on you. I may have to try them out!
    They don't look too long either which I don't like about false nails.
    hmm... :)

    1. I can't be dealing with long nails either, I never understand how those girls that have then can actually do anything!
