Myleene Klass Nails Review

Hello!
I've been wanting to try nail wraps for a long time as a girl that gets very impatient waiting for nail varnishes to dry. I couldn't wait to try out a product that promises zero drying time with no chipping or smudges and will last all week. However..let me tell you now, I was really disappointed!
I chose a vibrant red colour that luckily had 75% off, I believe they usually retail for around £6-£7. You get 24 wraps in a packet that will cover most sizes of finger nails and toe nails and also a nice big nail file (looking back probably the best feature!)
The instructions say to make sure that your nails are clean and free from polish or oil, then chose the correct wrap for the size of your nail. There are a good selection of sizes in the pack and also some extra pieces if one isn't quite a perfect fit. If you've never used nail wraps before the texture feels slightly like vinyl -that's the best way I can describe it.



So far so good...until you try to apply them! As you can see from the photo each wrap has a rounded side which fits to the shape of your cuticle and then you wrap the excess over the top of your nail and file away. I found this a very fiddly and time-consuming process.
'So quick and easy to apply', I wouldn't really call half an hour quick!
Firstly I had difficultly applying the wrap without any creases underneath, whichever way I tried to smooth it another crease would appear somewhere else!
Secondly I found removing the excess a challenge, the instructions say file downwards over the top of the nail to remove. However I just kept filing and my nail was definitely being removed but not the wrap, and even after I successfully managed to remove it, I was left with a raggedy mess at the top of my nail.

Thirdly they didn't even last a whole day! I applied them in the afternoon and had already removed they by bedtime after being so fed up of the peeling from the top and sides and scratching my face. Plus I had more than one person ask me 'Kelly, what's wrong with your nails!?" Not good!


I actually managed to meet Myleene earlier in the year at a launch for these nails wraps, she was so sweet in person and looked gorgeous, but I don't understand how you can fully endorse a product when it is so bad! Wouldn't you make every effort to make the product amazing before you go stamping your name on it? I know I would!


All in all I was very disappointed in these, I'm so glad I didn't pay the full retail price as then I would
have been really annoyed in the poor quality. I'm really hoping that this kind of product is not just a gimmick and I will find a good quality one eventually.

Has anyone else used these? What did you think?

Would love to hear from you! Thanks for reading!
