LET'S WRAP

Monday, 16 April 2012

Please excuse my sad little jokey, pretending I'm "street" pun. God, I'm uncool. Is there a female equivalent of Dad jokes? Mum jokes, perhaps? 

So, I got some Nail Rock Toonland Nail Wraps from ASOS last week, as I'm too spastic for doing nail art and I thought these would be a fun, easy alternative. Just because I don't have highly tuned motor functions, does't mean I don't deserve little pictures on my nails too, right? Plus, these are so kitsch, I just had to do it...

You can pick up these bad boys here, should you feel so inclined.

The verdict? I thought that they went on a dream (although I had to trim them down to size quite a lot, and it took some practice to get them right) and they've lasted quite well. Although I think they're a little much for every day wear, I do grin every time I catch sight of my nails, which is nice. I had them on for my last few days at home, which I'm pleased to say was filled with sunshine, beach-walks and tree-climbing. Perfection, in short.



As a self-confessed abuser of my nails, these may be the solution to my problems with manicures, after five days they're still looking pretty great! I'm already browsing for a design to wear to the Secret Garden Party in July (mainly because I purchased my ticket today and I could not. Be. More. Excited.

Are any of you going to be there?

  2. These are so so cute! I'm exactly the same with my nails so lately went a little crazy on eBay with nail wraps (but at a dollar a pack I couldn't resist). They look great!

    1. For a dollar a pop, I'd say you're laughing! I really must learn to eBay, I just lack the patience!

  3. Oh I love them, especially the mint one with sprinkles!
    I should try these because I definitely don't have a steady enough hand for nail art either =) The look so cute!

  4. I recently got some of the Meadham Kirchoff Nail Rock wraps from Topshop, but they were a complete and utter failure! Any tips for next time? xx

    1. Oh no! I'd tried some before which were not successful, but these ones came with a kind of scouring pad to rough up your nails a bit, and I think that that was quite helpful as they won't stick to too smooth a surface!
