After working all week what is better than having a lazy Sunday? With a touch of pampering too.
I love doing my own nails.. However I must admit I don’t do them that often any more. Oops.
I use clear nails ordered from Ebay. They are around £3-5 for about 60-100 nails. As my hands/nails are tiny – I have to order them in bulk as I end up using all the small ones. So if you have petite hands and want to do your own nails I’d suggest ordering in bulk – they are cheap so why not?
Then I use Bodycare’s own nail glue. I’m quite fussy with nail glues as I think most of them aren’t as effective as the one I use. They last for around 1-2 weeks with this glue, which I think is really good for stick on nails. I know there’s this stigma that stick on nails look horrible and cheap and don’t last – but I think if done correctly they look great and are a much more cost effective way of having your nails done.
As well as being cheaper, they don’t damage your nails anywhere near as much as acrylics do. However I would suggest a break in between nail sets to maintain good, healthy nails.
Another plus is that you can remove them whenever you like – so you can change the colour or pattern much easier than if you had acrylic nails.
I’ve also bought rounded nails from Ebay which I think I prefer. I love love love the way rounded nails look. I think they look much more natural. However, this time I went for the classic white square nails – I used Rimmel’s White Hot Love nail polish.
