Myleene Klass Nail Wraps

I don’t know what it is, but I really don’t like celebrity endorsed products.  There’s no logic to it, I’m just less likely to purchase something if it has a smiley celebrity on the front of its packaging.  However, with a limited choice of Nail Wraps at my local Boots, I decided to give Myleene’s wraps a try.

If NCLA were my all time faves and Nail Rock were the polar opposite, Myleene’s Nails (doesn’t that make it sound a bit like a local salon?) are bang in the middle.  They’re fairly easy to apply, although they’re a little thicker than the NCLA ones making it harder to ease out any of the creases so consequently I did have a few flaws on the edges.

The pack is generous and also comes with an additional sheet of clear stickers that you can apply over the wraps to make them even shinier (they’re pretty shiny anyway) and I’m guessing this extra layer would improve longevity.

I had a similar problem with these as I did with the Nail Rock ones as they were scratchy and caught on things and no amount of filing made any difference.

They lasted well and I liked the design, plus there are some good design choices available.  I bought these for £5.99 from the JML stand at Boots.  It’s safe to say that I’m still in love with nail wraps and will continue to try the various different brands until I find one that I love that doesn’t cost the earth.

    I have never tried nail wraps but they look good when theyre done properly. Is it tricky cutting them all to size?

    Hi Laura, nail wraps are my saviour as I am rubbish at painting my nails! It isn’t tricky cutting them at all, you just cut them to a little about the nail, then file them down to a neat finish. Applying them is really quick and easy so they’re definitely worth trying out xx

    I share the same feelings about celebrity endorsed products: it’s off-putting rather than a push to buy something. I just get the feeling that it’s not about the quality but rather about the image. These look quite nice though. I really like the zebra-print design, but it’s a shame about the rough edges once again!

    Hi Chrissy,

    That’s exactly what I think! In a way I can understand why a celebrity endorsement might be of use, but on the other hand I can’t help but think ‘isn’t your product good enough without the help of a famous face?’

    I’ve got two new brands of wraps to try over the coming weeks, so I’ll review them when I use them….I’m on a mission! xx
