IMG_7087

A easy and affordable way to save your nails from damage!

As you would have seen from my previous Elegant Touch review – I am an avid fan of press on nails. They’re easy to use, make me feel like a #girlboss, and make my hand held photos look on fleek! But with the use of press on nails comes the risk of nail damage from the glue – but to prevent this, Elegant Touch released these nail guards!

These nail guards are a thin, plastic sticker cover that you apply to your nails before the press on nail application. They act as a sheath to protect your nails as the glue doesn’t penetrate through them. This makes the nails easier, and safer to remove – which is handy if you’re workplace doesn’t allow false nails but you’d like to have them done for a special occasion! To remove them, all you have to do is use a cuticle pusher to flip up the edge of the fake nail to pop it off! So easy!

Bottom Line: Making removing faux nails simpler, easier, and quicker with less damage to your nails!

Price: £3.95 at all high-street retailers.

Feel like a boss, at a fraction of the cost!

As someone who used to spend £70 a month minimum on having shellac and my nails done – I cannot believe how much money I have now saved by learning how to give proper manicures to myself, and how to safely apply press on nails!

These packs – which you can find in most supermarkets and high street beauty stores – have become a must buy in my monthly shops to add a bit of self-love to my nails. I get an instant confidence boost from them. Plus I feel like a total boss when my nails are all done up, cuticles looking cute and I’m making those sassy tip taps on my phone whilst tweeting. Do you follow me on Twitter? I’m hilarious!…

For the fraction of the price of a salon visit, I’m able to do my nails on a weekly to fortnightly basis depending on my work without having the trouble of making an appointment around my busy schedule. I can’t have falsies on for my job so I can pick and choose when to apply and remove.

These sets include 24 nails, in 10 different sizes to help you get the best fit. They also include glue, nail tabs which are a less permanent way to affix them if you don’t want to use the glue, and a file to help buff and shape. These are perfect if you want to have Instagram ready nails for a holiday away in the sun, or for a glamorous event!

I love having these sets as they’re so easy to remove, you just soak in acetone nail varnish remover and pop off. With the help of the Elegant Touch Nail Guards – I’m able to safely remove the nails without damaging my nails as they act as a barrier between the glue and my nails! Elegant Touch have also recently improved their nail structure to make them more flexible so you get less ping off, and sturdier nails.

Bottom Line: If you want a quick, glamorous manicure, without the trip to the salon and high prices – these are for you!

Price: £7.50 @ Most Retailers – Boots, Superdrug, ASDA, Sainsbury’s and Tesco.
