A short fake nail review Day 3 SBBC

So I saw these in DEALZ and I loved the colours and since it was only 1,49 I really got tempted to buy them. I don’t often use fake nails. I think you can even say that you can count the times that I’ve used them on the fingers of one hand.
I remember having 'golden' fake nails when I was younger and I loved them. They were really unique and people always asked about them and complimented on them.

When I took these fake nails out of the pack and put one of them on my nail I realised that they are not long nails. They are actually hardly longer than my own nails. But I love that about them. They are perfect for mummies. I loved having them on.

They come in a pack with three sets in different colours: Pink, purple and black .
They have a gloss on them so it’s almost like you’re just wearing glossy nail polish.
I love the concept because my nail polish gets off quite easily when I do the dishes etc. So they’re really handy for that. Since they don’t really give you long nails they are actually as a substitute for nail polish which really works well for me.

I personally only had to get used to using the glue. The first hand went quite smoothly but the second hand got me a bit frustrated, because the nails didn’t stick as quickly as I wanted. My fingers got quite some glue and if that gets on the nail it becomes matte. I ended up going to youtube to get some instructions on how to put fake nails on. Apparently you need to prepare your nails so the fake nails will stick better. And I was doing it all wrong. You’re supposed to add the glue to the fake nail and to your own nail instead of only on the fake nail like I did. I was too impatient to watch the video before sticking on the last nails, so I ended up getting them on my nails on my own way. But you can see on the pictures how much glue I used.
When I went to look for a nail file -which I didn’t find- I came across this silver glittery nail polish from AVON and decided to try to put it over the nails and it really looked stunning. 

It was hard to try to make a picture that shows how they really look. The pictures really don’t do them justice. They look so much better in reality. My camera is probably not good enough to show them as they really are. They really sparkle and it looks so pretty. I’m just in love with my nails now.

So my overall verdict is ;
These are great. I love that they’re short. I love the gloss and I love that you can use them to put glittery nail polish over them and completely change them up that way. They are more than worth the 1,49 that they cost. Even though they’re really cheap ,they don’t look cheap at all , especially with the nail polish on them. I definitely will use these more often and I’d love to have them in more colours.  I definitely would buy them again.

What do you think about these fake nails? Have you tried them? Would you buy them ? What do you think of the combination with the nail polish ? 
I’d love to hear from you.


This was my first nail review and I hope that you liked it.

It's Summer time / Giveaway (closed)

It’s officially Summer here in Ireland, even though most of the time  it is hard to see it when you look outside. There are days when there have been some sunny spells but the sun has been hiding behind dark clouds on most of those days as well. This week it's supposed to be a good week weather wise.  A few weeks ago the sun was shining since the morning and after dropping the two older girls at school, I decided to take Nevaeh for a walk to the park close by and to feed the ducks. On the way to the park the sun was so much in my eyes that I decided to stop at the Dunnes Stores and get sun glasses. Since Nevaeh was so interested in mine I got her some too. Mini mouse ones. She loves them. The week after, it was the turn for the older girls to get sun glasses. Hello Kitty ones for Yovannah. And pink, sparkly ones for Ixora. They really love their sun glasses and wear them on sunny days.

Since this post is post nr. 60 of my blog I decided to do a little give away.

Little people

It's Five minute friday. And I'm joining Lisa-Jo Baker for another session of five minute writing.

 Today we are writing about ; Imagine


 I love having kids. I love how they can surprise you by using certain words or doing certain things of which you were not aware that they could say them or do them. I love how clever they are.
I love to take care of them and to see them grow in to the people they are supposed to be one day. Now they are little people, my little people. A wish fulfilled, a blessing from God and I can’t imagine how life would be without them.
I can’t imagine a life without tiny arms that wrap themselves around you and say ‘I love you mummy’, even though they are only two. I can’t imagine a house without toys , the buggy with dollies in the corridor, the little wooden bike in the living room, the forgotten stuffed animals behind the sofa.
Though I sometimes wish that it was easier, that they made less mess, I surely can’t imagine life without them.
