This Week’s Nails – Disco

I feel a bit spoilt for choice when it comes to my nails at the moment as I have so many new nail varnishes, glitters and nail wraps to try out…#firstworldproblems I know!

I have had successes with Avon’s nail wraps in the past so I was really excited to try out these new ones that I received for Christmas from one of my lovely colleagues. My set, Check You Out, contained clear nail wraps dotted with raised sparkly, jewel-coloured squares.

Having quite short nails, I was able to use one nail wrap for two nails meaning I can get 2-3 applications from this pack.

They were really easy to apply but slightly trickier to file and shape around the tip of the nail as the coloured squares were quite solid and when they were halved, they did not sit well on the nail.

After cutting, trimming and filing the nail wraps, I sealed the look with a coat of Seche Vite.

Et voila! They remind me of one of those light-up disco floors and I think the clear background stops them looking too OTT.

Although I love the look of these wraps, they did not have the best staying power, lasting just 4 days. The tips stayed quite rough too meaning they would catch on things and one even peeled off on Day 2.

I still rate the Avon nail wraps as I think they have a great variety of designs and are nice and simple to apply. I actually have one more set to try out in my stash so I will of course share those results! x
