Evenings lovelies, by now we all know how much I love nail wraps and have used my fair share from Rebel Nails. I purchased this particular set of nail wraps just before Christmas, they had the free delivery and these were and are still half price. My mum took a liking to them, so I ordered another set for her, though I ended up applying them for her too.
These retail for just £3. Chrome and metallic nails are a big hit lately, we've all read about the Barry M foil polishes or used them ourselves. I love how Rebel Nails have sets specifically for finger nails as well as toes, allowing a better fit.
These are reduced, down to them being harder to apply. If you buy these you'll need a little more heat and maybe some glue on the tip. Though for both sets I haven't used any glue.
Like all sets, you get 16 nail wraps. The pack comes with the nail stencil/guide, designed for the toe nail wraps. I always find these helpful, designs can differ a little, once you've had a few sets, you'll be able to pick without using this. For £6 I had 32 nail wraps, so I can apply one more set, whether it's on me or my Mum asks. A few odd sizing's left, but I can easily trim.
If your new to nail wraps, here's what to do.
Use the stencil/guide, match up your size of nail wraps to your toes.
Then pick off card with a pair of tweezers.
Heat with a hairdryer, for about 20 seconds, or until it seems thinner. You'll know.
Press onto the selected nail from the bottom, smoothing out creases, if needed you can use a little heat while putting on.
Fold over excess nail wrap, then file off, at a slight angle.
I've applied mine last night and I have to say for a set of nail wraps that are said to be harder to apply I found them okay. I had a few problems with my little toes. I have tiny feet (size 2-3) and there for have tiny toes/nails. It took a couple tries for me to get them to stay on my barely existing nails. These only needed a little extra heat, I applied them and they barely had any creases for me to smooth out. The same when I applied my Mum's, now I applied hers back around New Year, they stayed on for 6 weeks. Brilliant for my first time using the Rebel Nails Chrome wraps. I'd highly recommend these wraps, if you've used nail wraps before or willing to take a bit more time, if not try the newer version of these wraps for the full price. The newer set is also available in gold. The nail wraps were still on my Mum's toes at the end of the 6 weeks, but regrowth was showing too much.
They came off really clean and didn't leave any glue residue that sometimes wraps can leave. She simply just peeled them off.
I'd rate these 8/10.
