Hey loveliess, I hope you’re all warm and well!
Whilst I leisurely strolled around the havoc that is primark, I spotted a rack of beauty bits and naturally, I was intrigued. There was rows upon rows of glue on nails. All different shapes and colours. For the bargain price of one English pound, I had to pick some up and see if they’re any good. I chose two colours “nearly nude” which are right up my alley and “lacquered up”, a beautiful bold pink colour, perfect for the warmer months. So, great selection and amazing price point, but are primark nails any good?
Lacquered up nails:
The first set I tried were the pink ones (Because they matched my outfit) they seemed to fit my fingers pretty well considering I have naturally small narrow nails. Being totally honest, the glue isn’t great, I didn’t really trust it would keep the nails on for the duration of the day, and I was right. After about two hours, they became quite loose and I was very conscious about them coming off. If you own a good nail glue, I’d use that instead. I did like how the nails looked however, they felt quite plasticy and cheap on(remembering they are only a quid)
Nearly nude nails:
Now, moving onto the “nearly nude” set.. I opened up the box, and there was only the 8 nails displayed. No extra little bag of nails behind like the pink set. Obviously I have more than 8 fingers so this was a real problem. The box was sealed before I opened it and I searched around to check the bag of nails hadn’t fallen out, it hadn’t. Bit of a pain, as this was the colour I preferred from the two and I wasn’t able to use them, but no real harm done because they didn’t cost a lot (luckily)
So, overall (excluding the nude set) they’re an okay set of nails for a days use (ideal for events). They do the job and if you find a colour and shape you like, may as well pick up a set and give them a whirl.
Would I buy these again? Probably, but i’ll get two matching boxes next time, just in case
What do you guys think of the up and coming primark budget beauty products? Anything I should try out?
Kisses and Love
