elegant touch classic french x-short o'natural pre-glued nails

Elegant Touch Classic French x-short pre-glued nails in o'natural: tesco (£4)

What a mouthful! I was doing the food shop with my mum a couple of weeks ago and just so happened to stumble across the beauty aisle (that's my excuse) and saw a bunch of false nails were on offer. I picked up a couple of boxes thinking it was a really great deal but didn't realise they were pre-glued! I much prefer the ones you glue on separately as I am used to them and take comfort in having my own bottle of glue with me at all times in case one pings off! I was also more excited over the extra short label as usually you can only get such a length if they have tiny white tips I've found.. anyway, these were easy enough to apply, but because I have quite short nails the sticky substance overlapped so any dirt under my nails would make the glue darken and look really grubby. I also didn't find them to be extra short at all so I dread to think what a short or medium set would look or feel like on me!

I think the finished look is really nice, natural and polished but for me personally I couldn't hack the feeling of them for more than a few days - you could easily bend them where the glue wasn't on each false nail right to the edge so it was like they could fall off at any moment even though they were pretty secure. Every time I messed around with my hair a few strands would creep under the gaps of the nails and get stuck! I think these would be great for a party or something, or a day occasion for people who aren't used to false nails and don't like the idea of applying a strong glue to their natural nails. Have you tried these? What do you think of them? Any recommendations/tips are welcome!

  3. I can't wear pre-glued nails! They just don't feel secure enough! I wouldn't like to try and tackle the buttons on my jeans with them!

  4. These look really lovely on you. Although I must admit I would hate it if they didn't feel secure.

  9. I'm not a fan of false nails tbh, but these actually look quite nice on you. I like the Impress nails for a bit of colour usually and that about it.

  10. They look really lovely! I tried those clear ones from Boots a while ago, the ones that come in a pack of about 200, I had to ping them all off after about 5 hours as I just couldn't function hahaha! Typing on my iPhone was a nightmare haaa x

  13. I made the EXACT same error! Picked them up and thought great these will be fab on my super short and tiny nails.. yeh not so much. I thought I could cheat the pre-glued nature of them by just putting normal nail glue on and word of warning, the 2 glues do not mix well. I ended up with the glue refusing to set and then running all over my fingers.. #fail! Best ones I have used are the Boots plain box of 200 nails and then painting them - I know they aren't french manicured then but at least they look super natural!

  14. I think they look really lovely on your nails, but there is nothing worse than that uncomfortable feeling of fake nails that aren't on properly ughh xx

  15. Ugh the hair thing sounds unbearable! As a hair stylist that would drive me mad! They look nice but a little long, for extra short! Bizarre.

  16. I tried these under pretty much exactly the same circumstances as you! I bought them after spotting they were on offer and didn't realise they were pre-glued so I was disappointed when it came to putting them on. I actually found that for me the length was just right and once I realised they were stuck on well and weren't going anywhere I loved them! I did experience that horrible feeling with my hair though and had to peel the odd one from under the nail, eurgh, but it hasn't put me off them.

  17. they remind me of stick on nails i had as a child! i've heard the impress nails are really good though and they seem to be a similar sort of concept so maybe they're better! I hate using false nails as I find the glue so so damaging but my nails are all broken and short at the moment so i'm trying to resist temptation! :P
