Review: Nailene Nails-So Natural Everyday french

image

When I was younger, I loved getting my nails done. I’d save up my money just so I could go to a salon and get my nails done. I absolutely loved the look of acrylic nails, so classy and sophisticated.

As I got older and had kids the extra $30 for nails ended up going to the kids. $30 a visit plus $14 for refills can be pretty expensive keep up. My real nails would end up suffering after they came off too. Brittle, splitting, and cracking. Not to mention they HURT to take off.

These Nailene So Naturals really do look like French Tip Acrylic nails. I love how thick they are, which is what makes them look so real. I have seen and used other false nails that were supposed to resemble acrylic nails and they didn’t come close. The others were really thin, would bend (which acrylic nails don’t), and wasn’t very high quality.

These nails come with 24 different nails, so no matter what size your nails are- there will be a fit for you. They take absolutely no time to get used to. As I am typing with them right now—and I usually can’t type very well with false nails on.

The best part about these nails is that they can be painted over. I wore mine for a week (as natural French tip) and then another with color. I couldn’t believe that they actually held up that long.

These nails come with their own “tabs” which are similar to glue but without the mess. As a mom and a writer the “tabs” don’t hold for very long by themselves. So I applied the tabs to my fingers, peel the plastic piece off, and then apply the nail.

When the nails started feeling loose and wobbly, I apply a brush on glue to the nail bed and reapply the nail. What I really like about the tabs are that they hold on super tight. Even if some nails do come loose- they work awesome with glue. It’s like they suction the nail to the nail bed. It’s better than just using regular glue by itself! Love that they are included in the package..

I’ve used other “tabs” on nails before and they were awful. They didn’t hold on tightly, and they didn’t bode well for long time use. I couldn’t even do my own hair because the tabs on the nails would stick to my hair.

I give these a 10/10. They are very high quality nails, available in a variety of colors, and they stay on for 7+ days. They are available in a wide variety of places, so they are easy to find. They are cheap and look amazing!
