I figured that this week I'd do something out of the ordinary and be spontaneous with money. I did

I wanted to go for something different, something that couldn't just be achieved with nail varnish and that weren't too much like talons for my first go. And so I bought these: Ted Baker Faked to Perfection in Rose Gold There should be a photo somewhere over there >> (On a slightly different note, the packaging is beautiful!)
Being completely new to the whole idea it took me a while to work out what sizes I needed on each nail, and then how much glue I needed to make them properly stick - I was worried about nails pinging off at the most inconvenient of times... - but by the end of the first hand, I had it under control.
I was a little worried about them peeling off and all that jazz, but so far, they've survived a little bit of washing up... (Just a tiny bit, I haven't had much to do...) and they've survived a proper hair wash - I had visions of hair getting caught under the nail and it then peeling off - but they haven't! And I'm so chuffed!!!
The only downside so far, the price. £8.00. That's a lot. Especially for me, the student. There are definitely cheaper out there, which maybe I'll go out and try at some point.
But as a start, these are brilliant. Well Done, Ted Baker!!
