It’s Saturday tea time, and I’m currently sat in my dressing gown with wet hair tightly wrapped into a towel, music on and applying my eye makeup. I’m supposed to be meeting my friends in town in an hour, but I haven’t even chosen what to wear yet. Then I catch sight of my chipped manicure and broken nail and resign myself to the fact that I’m going to have to settle for another rushed, cover-up job. Not quite the polished finish I envisioned for cocktails with the girls.
Sound at all familiar? If you’re as disorganised as me when it comes to getting night-out ready, that arduous task of painting nails is likely to be a step that’s missed at least once in a while. And yet, there’s a simple, and fast solution. Nope, not an in-house manicurist. Nailhur: A collection of snap on manicures, in a huge range of designs, from the most blinged out tips, to classic monochromatic hues, and four nail tip shapes.
If you’re suddenly reminiscing about those cheap stick-ons from your school days, which fell off before you even left the house, don’t be put off. Nailhur’s adhesive bonds the false nail firmly and effectively, lasting over a week. And they actually look real, too. More cost effective than a salon manicure, there are over 50 designs to choose from, with nail art, embellishments and more – there’s literally a style to suit every look. I’m currently sporting the Kitty Kat style, made in collaboration with Nicole Guerriero – a negative space manicure without the effort!
And when it comes to removal? There’s no need to soak them in drying acetone, or harshly remove them, they just slide off with a little soaking in warm water. So now I have no excuse for tatty nails – I can press on a new, elaborate manicure in a matter of minutes and not be quite so late on my way out the door!
