Beauty | Nail Wrapz Review*

Despite my huge love for pretty nails, I'm definitely no nail art wizard. My talents can just about stretch to a basic nail polish look. For this reason I'm always interested in a product that can make my weekly-manicure session slightly more special, so I was delighted to be offered the opportunity by the ever so lovely team at Nail Wrapz to review their product.

Nail Wrapz are a USA based company who offer hundreds of different designs for you to jazz up your nails up with. Although I was provided with a random selection of half sheets of four of their designs, I've been having a browse through their website and they offer everything from flags to zombies, seasons to your basic patterns. They even offer a custom nail wraps option if you're after a one of a kind design. For $14.99 (which I do believe is just under £10), you recieve "40 complete nail wraps in 10 different sizes.  That is enough to do 2 manicures, 2 pedicures, and still have a few accent nails left".

Hands up who wants a manicure that lasts for ages? Then Nail Wrapz will be right up your street. One of the things about nail polish that drives me up the wall is its ability to chip like there's no tomorrow. But this obviously isn't the case with Nail Wrapz and that's just wonderful. They're designed to last up to the two week mark (sometimes longer if you get lucky), which would make them perfect for festivals and holidays where you need something long-lasting so you don't have to keep touching up your manicure. I found the product to only last about a week, but I'm pretty sure that this shortcoming is simply as a result of the fact that I have fairly thin fingers so the wraps don't fit my nails perfectly. Even then, seven days is much longer than the longevity of most nail polishes.

It's not just laziness that fuels my Nail Wrapz love - the designs are also stunning. I had a tough time choosing which out of my four designs I was going to use, but I ended up going for a stunning blue/turquoise design with small silver spots. I've always found that a look that is predominantly a solid colour works really well with most outfits, so it's always something I look for in a nail art design.

I'm not going to lie, the application of the wraps is not the easiest thing in the world. It's not exactly difficult per-se, but it is fiddly and you may need to recruit a fabulous assistant to help you with the process. Ultimately all you have to do is peel of the wrap from the plastic backing, heat it until it's soft (a hairdryer does just the trick) and pop it on the nail. Time will need to be spent removing any pesky wrinkles (to the best of your ability; I gave up in the end with some of the difficult ones) using a cuticle pusher, and then bending the excess wrap over the nail and filing it off. To complete the whole process, you just need to heat it up again to set the wrap and you're done and dusted. A fancy full list of instructions is avaliable on the Nail Wrapz webiste, but they do also offer you a short and simple guide to application as part of the packaging. Removal is also super easy: all you have to do is peel them off!

The only issue I came across with the wraps is the size of them. I found that some of them were longer than my nails and this left them looking slightly strange, but I'm sure this will be fixed if next time I cut down a few of them prior to application.

Ultimately, I was pleasantly suprised about how much I've fallen in love with this product. Although the application process can verge slightly on tedious, this is very much made up for when you consider the longevity of the product and also how stylish the finished look is.

Nail Wrapz retail at $14.99 and can be purchased online here.
