First Ever Nail Wrap Attempt!

My collection of nails wraps has been ever growing, after receiving my first pack in Glossy Box a few months back. I've been waiting till my nails are in a reasonable condition and length before i use them, and at the moment then are satisfactory, though i have one nail that doesn't grow properly after trapping it in a door when i was 12/13.
So i picked up these wraps quite cheaply (£1.79) at my local Trago Mills, as they were so cheap and I'm not amazingly keen on the pattern i thought i would use these as my first attempt, so i don't mind as much if i mess them up.

Just The Packet
So for £1.79 this is what you get...

- 20 Nail wraps in 10 different sizes
- A nail file
- An orange stick.

The instruction are very simple, clean dry nail, apply, smooth, done. Perfect. There was a step in there about warming your nail with a hair dryer to ensure easy and precise application.
I started with my thumb, and was amazed at how easy it was to apply, i was expecting it to be fiddly and get stuck everywhere and get loads of crinkles. but i didn't, i got one teenie tiny crinkle right at the top, but you can hardly notice it. while doing my other nails i tried the hairdryer thing, found it didn't make much difference at all? I'm wondering if this was because they are very cheap nail wraps maybe, with the more expensive ones i will notice the difference.
So after doing all my nails, probably in about 5/10mins, i was very pleased, i even found doing my opposite hand a doddle (something i often struggle with when painting) i was, extremely pleased with the final results....

Although the pattern isn't my favourite, they'll do for my first try. I added a coat of clear varnish, just to help them last a bit longer. 
I look forward to seeing how long they do last! and i shall definitely be using my collection of nails wraps up sooner!
I think they might be my new favourite, so quick and easy, with amazing results!

Have you tried nail wraps? How long did yours last for?

Lots of Love
