RawrGirl's Review and Giveaway - Nailene Nail Studio Nails and Ultra Tabs!

Sunday, 14 August 2011

Paws up if you love the look of false nails, but hate having to get them off after use? ME!! So when Nailene offered me a pack of their fab Nail Studio Nails and Ultra Tabs to try, I thought, hmmm why the hellz not?!

The Ultra Tabs are amazing little tabs of adhesive that you pop onto your nail before pressing on the false nail (so it's so much easier than blobbing on super sticky glue from a tiny tube) but the best bit comes when you're ready to take the nails off - you literally just ROLL the nail off along with the adhesive underneath! No soaking, no picking, no messed up nail - just roll off et voila, clean nails! It reminds me of the glue blobs that hold sachets of shampoo etc onto magazine pages - very pliable but still super sticky. These tabs were like a revelation for me. It's so easy to make a repair too. I had a daft accident and one of my nails was damaged, but I just rolled it off, applied a new tab and nail and went on my merry way in like, a minute!

Here are some pics of my finished result. This hand pretty much took about 3 mins to apply and I was really pleased with the results!

They lasted about 4 days before the adhesive started to fail, but the nails themselves were fine. If I chose to, I could've rolled them off, cleaned them up and used them again with new tabs :)

Overall I highly recommend these Nailene sets, I had a ton of compliments on my 'manicure' through the week (Ye-essss, I admitted they were amazing falsies!) and I don't think I'll use nail glue ever again!

  1. Ok so I'm getting on a bit, never- yes never had my nails done but what do they say "it's never too late"! Big wedding coming up (the son, not me) and I've decided it's time to start sorting myself out. These nails sound perfect for me (are they truly idiot proof?) and I would love to give them a go. Then I can dye the hair- again a first!!

  2. wow these look pretty good for falsies and its such a better idea than using nail glue which I hate. would love to enter your giveaway. my natural nails are just a mess at the moment.


  3. Well I'm an eyelash expert yet false nails baffle me, but I was applying these like an old hand - love them!
