Want insta-worthy claws without the nail damage/ excessive costs to get them continuously filled in? Look no further!
Let me just start off by saying – I purchased these on my own and am not affiliated with Nailhur in any way. I know many insagrammers have affiliate codes and promote these like cray on their pages but these were an impulse purchase one late night after breaking a nail (and breaking down internally).
Sorry if this review is rushed but I want to get this up before Nailhur’s sale ends on Sunday! Buy any 3 sets for US$30 (code: NAIL3) or 5 for US$50 (code: NAIL5) (savings of up to 78% which outweighs the 65% off you get by using affiliate codes)
I purchased 5 sets which equated to AUD$71.31 at the time. With each set’s original price at US$39.99 each, I saved US$149.95 (which isn’t that big of a deal when you would usually get 65% off anyway). Shipping was free and they arrived in 11 days (including weekends) which was great considering it was over the New Year holidays.
Ok onto the nails themselves! There are different shape options – Stiletto, Squaletto, Oval and Square and each of these come with their own colour selection.
Wonderland (Stiletto) – pink glitter
Orange Crush (Squaletto) – bright coral to neon orange
Nakey (Stiletto) – beige/griege nude (a great nude for a wide range of skin tones)
Samantha (Stiletto) – black with clear half moon design
Glamazon (Stiletto) – a mix of nails with plain pale pink, black, and a gold and black accent nail.
Each pack comes 24 nails (12 sizes) with nail glue and a nail file.
These nails are the sturdiest false nails i’ve ever tried, but in saying that – they do not look chunky at all and are lightweight. They look acrylic and not “plastic-y” and are hard wearing. The nail is super strong. If you only want them on for a night, just a little glue on the fake nail is enough. For a week, glue on both the fake nail and natural nail will make it last. For longer wear, you can buff the natural nail before applying glue to the surface. They don’t break or chip off in pieces as my Sally Hansen pairs do.
The thing I love most about them is that they are so easy to reshape. The pack itself comes with 12 different size options but even if they don’t fit, you can simply file the shape you require. It’s super easy to change the shape of the nail – make it shorter, file stiletto nails down to squaletto etc. Also, you can paint over the original colour and take it off again with polish remover without removing the colour.
These nails are also marketed as reusable! To remove them, simple soak them in warm-hot water and wedge them off. Though the company claim no damage to the nail, when removing (even without forcing the nail off), it takes off some of the top layer of the nail.
Okay so SUMMARY:
– easy to remove
– long lasting
– wide range to choose from
– cheaper than acrylic manicures
– expensive if only wanted for a one off
– takes a while to come – not the best to order if needed asap
I would definitely recommend these nails! I get compliments on my “acrylics” all the time! Let me know if you want to know more!
