Primark False Nails.. Yes or No?

Well hello there gorgeous chums! So there I was browsing the shelves of good ol' Primark, all the while biting my nails. You see unless my nails are all filed and polished I can not help myself but grab that loose section and bite if off! Sounds gross I know! Anyhoo I came across their huge range of false nails and thought for £1 you can't really go wrong.  Off I popped to the till with my pound coin feeling very pleased with myself.

I got home and the first thing I did was buff and file my own nails making sure I had a flat service to attach the false nails to. Then I got going finding the right sizes to fit my nails.  And let me tell you there were a couple of nails in that pack that literally would have only fitted my big toe.. huge! Don't think I will be using those. Then there were a couple of tiny ones which were way too small for my pinky. The other 20 were all pretty normal sizes which I will be able to use, so it looks like I will get 2 sets of nails for £1, amazing!

The set also comes with glue, result! I went to work attaching the nails and pressing them very firmly on to my nails making sure there were no air bubbles (air bubbles = less secure fitting), gave them a little file and Voila! Beautiful nails.

I am OVER THE MOON with these beauties so its a huge YES, I will deffinitely repurchase! Other french manicure false nails cost from £5-£10 and they really are no better than these beauties!

Have a fabulous weekend! I am off to pick out some more falsies from Primark, whoop!

UPDATE** These looked lovely for about 2 days then started to split at the tips. I removed them after about 4 days. Still great for £1 but I would say more suitable for an event not long term xx
