False Nails


Nails... I've always had a love/hate relationship with mines. They never really grow long enough for me to love them, I'm trained in acrylic and gel nails but can only do one hand well much to my pain and misery! Also now I'm a mum boring mum alert! it's just easier for them to be short and I don't have the time to go for infills and I just don't want to drag a three year old diva into a salon. So what about when I do have the rare chance to go out? I love having my nails done when I'm being set free upon Aberdeen and getting to sip on a cosmo or ten! I've always been a fan of statement nails and I started using false nails/press on nails. These have come a long way in the last few years in term of quality, design and choices and they may just be what you're looking for to pretty up your hands for a day or two! Remember when glue on nails only came in french or a ridiculously plastic looking red? Well that is no longer the case. Anyway enough babbling from me, here are some of the nails I have purchased or that I'm crushing on!



Sarah started making nails as a hobby whilst she practised new nail art techniques on false nails, She started selling on Ebay and now Sarah works on nails full time! In two years shes turned nails from a hobby to a full time career where she runs her own website, an Etsy store and her Ebay store. I love her designs and I also love the fact you have nine options of which nail shape you would like! Her designs are stunning and I'm officially in nail heaven!

I can't begin to explain how excited I was when I came across this Fife Fantasi Nails. You are spoiled for choice and the hand painted nails are coated in gel to extra durability. I have had to restrain myself from literally sharing every design on their website because I am obsessed! I have a slight obsession with marble and the fact I can apply my obsession to my nails is perfection.




The Little Nail Box has amazing designs. Ran by Sophie her hand painted designs are created using top products such as CND Shellac and all crystals used on her nails are Swarovski. Sophie paints all of the nails you see on her store and you can even contact her if you have a custom design in mind. The Little Nail Box is well worth a visit! I'm not usually into floral designs but The Little Nail Box may have just changed that.

I first stumbled across House of Holland a few years ago in Boots. I was blown away by the designs at the time so I naturally couldn't walk away and somehow ended up with loads in my basket. These nails are good quality, Most recently I wore some for a wedding I attended and everyone kept asking who did my nails and couldn't believe it when I told them they were glue on nails. These nails tend to range from around £7.99 - £14.99 for their Luxe range. They do keep pretty well though so I have been able to reuse them. Of course I will always encourage you to purchase with an individual seller but if you need nails last minute and don't have time to order then this is my go to brand.

    1. Oh no why not? I know some of these retailers do custom orders so I imagine shorter nail lengths could be made!

  2. How cool! I never bother with fake nails because they mess up my real nails. But it's nice that there are some DIY nicer sets now than when I was younger.

    1. I find the sticky nail tabs like little stickers are the best method for applying press on nails and so far I've never experienced any damage to my natural nails so perhaps that could be an option for you to try.

    1. I can't handle wearing nails daily now they just get in my way but these are perfect if you have a special occasion. They also keep really well when you use the glue tabs so you can store them for future use!

  4. Oh, these look so fun! I use Jamberry nail wraps, they go right on my natural nail and last about 2 weeks! But they won't add any length to your nails like these do!
