Nailene 200 Full Cover Nails - Active Length Square
Cheaper alternative to salon nails, and look just as good!
I love getting my nails done (gels), but they're so expensive and I was looking for a cheap alternative. I had my doubts about these nails, but they're perfect! They're not too long, and if you want to make them shorter or change the shape they're easy to cut and file without damaging them. Although they can fall off, if you use the right amount of glue they won't unless they're pulled off, but they can easily be reapplied with more glue.
They don't look great if you leave them how they are (clear/white), but they are easy to paint and hold it well - I thought maybe nail varnish wouldn't stay on well, but it works perfectly.
A bit disappointing that some nails don't fit, but you wouldn't get that with any product I don't think.
Absolutely excellent value for money, definitely worth buying!

Not good enough
I have always used Boots pack of 200 nails previously, but they were out of stock, so I bought these instead. I found them to be too rounded and rigid, so the staying power for them was limited as they would 'pop off' with little or no pressure. I will be reverting back to Boots own as soon as I can, I have been using false nails for 40 years now, and these were the worst stayers I have tried..

Great but needs different glue and a cuticle stick
I suffer from excoriation (excessive skin picking) when I become anxious and I can't afford to get my nails done professionally - nor do I have the time with three kids! However, I bought these because of the reviews and I'm SO glad I did.
200 nails for £8?? They're amazing.
The first time I put them on I was incredibly daft and put some on the wrong way around (lol) so they appeared flimsy and would break, but since having them on the right way around I change them each Friday night and I never have any pop off or come lose. I do however use a different nail glue (one with a brush) but I think they're all the same. I do all my household cleaning etc without gloves and they stand up to detergent.
They're an excellent product and even the nails that are too big can be filed down to fit my nail bed width... I think there's 10 that are probably too small (pinky finger) so in all I expect to have this box for 10 weeks worth of use for £8! To have my nails done would be about once every 3 weeks at £20-£25... I'm easily saving £52 at least!
You will need varnish to cover them, but the varnish stays on all week as well and they look great - I also have great skin to boot and they don't get in the way of my computer-based job! :)
