Elegant Touch Matte Nails – Michelle Indigo
‘Inspired by the latest runway trends, these gorgeous nails will stay dramatic & strong the entire wear, with a long-lasting, smudge-free and chip-free finish.’
I love painting my nails but they can easily chip or my nails break as they are quite thin. So over the past few months I have been getting my nails done. But since it’s around christmas time and I am a student, I’m on a very tight budget which means I can’t treat myself to getting my nails done.
For a cheaper alternative I deiced to try out the Elegant Touch nails.There was an offer in Boots when I picked these up. It was a 3 for 2 on a whole range of products. I only deiced to pick up one box of nails because I have never used them before and I didn’t know what they would be like. But now I wish I would have gotten more!
I picked up the Michelle nails because I liked the indigo matt shade and the oval shaped nails.
This is the first time I have applied false nails and to begin with, It was quite hard to do but once I did one hand I got the hang of it. This may sound stupid but applying false nails to yourself is quite hard as I managed to nearly glue my finger to my nail once or twice!
For £6.95 you get instructions, a nail file, glue and lots of nails!
You can find these Michelle nails here.
Boots also stock a whole range of Elegant Touch nails in different colours and nail styles.
How To Apply
I made sure before I started to apply the nails that I had removed any nail varnish from my nails.
I then found the right size nail for each nail on both hands.
I laid the nails out in front of me so It was easy for me to grab them and match them too the right nail.
I started with my pinky finger and applied glue to my nail, then pressed down for 40 seconds.
I then repeated this step on all my nails.
What I liked about these nails:
- How thin they are because they stick to your nails better and don’t let any dirt go in between your nails and the false nail.
- The colour is gorgeous and the shape is natural looking.
- The affordable price of these nails.
- They last a few weeks if you look after them
What I disliked about these nails:
- Because they are quite thin, you have to be careful not to accidentally bend them.
- Some of the nails are a little bit big for me as I only have small hands/nails so these don’t get used.
Overall I am so pleased and happy with how these nails turned out and how long they have lasted! I’m glad you get a lot of glue and some spare nails too. I will be stocking up on these nails as they are so affordable and last a long time and they look so natural and gorgeous!
