So I'm a little bit slow to the party but I finally used my Meadham Kirchhoff Nail Wraps!
Avaliable from Topshop these are a collaboration between Nail Rock and Meadham Kirchoff.
The wraps come in cute packaging with a single sheet of 16 nail wraps (eight individual designs and two of each design). The colours are perfect Spring like pastel shades, almost like having candy at your fingertips.
The design and the aesthetics of the product I just cannot fault. Gorgeous little critters and colours that are good enough to eat I just love them. (So much infact that I have a second set which will be 'for looking at' and admiring every so often...yeh I know that's a little odd but the whole package is so appealing.)
The actual application of the Nail Wraps was sadly not so good.
I read the instructions pretty thoroughly and tried really hard to make these work because as I think I've mentioned before I LOVE them.
They were easy enough to apply and I didn't find them too flimsy or prone to ripping as they are a nice thick decal.
However the shape of the wraps were a little odd, I normally apply wraps to square nails but this time went for rounded but it caused a lot of creases. I'd be interested to see if the creases would be as bad if I had square nails on...
I'm sure you can see from the pics the odd little crease and imperfections. It is a little disappointing as there was nothing I could do to smooth them out completely.
I'm also not sure that the length and location of the design has been that well thought out. If you were to apply them to shorter cut nails the design would be very close to the tip. Fortunately I chose to apply them to a medium length nail so I think the design worked out ok.
On the packet of the wraps it claims 'up to 10 days wear' I've had these on just over 24 hours and they've already begun to look a little bit tatty and worn on the nail tips. I do hate when companies make very unrealistic claims!
In conclusion cute design and lovely colours but not the best nail wraps I've used. Not sure if it is just the Nail Rock brand or if this is a one off bad design but it hasn't put me off wanting to get these ASOS ones too.
Have you tried these wraps? What did you think? Or do you have some really good tips in the application of nail wraps? Leave me a comment and let me know.
