Nail Rocks Designer Nail Wraps Review

Updated on December 28, 2013

Nail Rocks Designer Nail Wraps are the new polish free way to jazz up finger and toe nails. Quick, and easy to apply, they come in a range of patterns, ideal for those of us who don't have the talent or time to get creative with nail polishes!

I received a pack of the Nail Rocks Designer Wraps last year in my August Glossybox. Priced at £6.95 for this particular set, it's definatly a try before you buy product!

Other wraps available for purchase.

In the pack, you receive one sheet of adhesive nail wraps, eight different sizes and two of each size. Designed for both fingers and toes, you may need to trim them down a lot, especially if like me, you have small hands!

Once you've cleaned up your own nails, pushed back the cuticles and given them a little buff, you're good to go. Choose the adhesive wrap closest to your nail size, trim width and sides, small nail scissors would be best for this. Starting at the cuticle, simply stick down, smoothing upwards and removing any bubbles or folds. Really press against the edges of the nail, as when you start to file away the excess, it has a habit of pulling away from the nail, causing more wrap than necessary to be removed. You'll want to file gently and smoothly, and keep smoothing the wrap down. For best results, you'll want the nail to be a few millimeters above the finger!

One hand on my first attempt took about 10 minutes, which isn't bad considering it takes me much longer than that to paint a few coats of nail varnish. Unfortunately, it really does just 'feel' like you are putting stickers on your nails, and personally, I think they look very obviously 'fake'. They're too shiny, and up close are nowhere near as neat as a professional polish.

The wraps I received are not ones I would choose for everyday wear, though would perhaps work well used as an accent nail. I think they'd be great for fancy dress or a special occasion (depending on the style you choose!) I can't see them lasting more than two days, especially if water gets under the wrap.

Wraps are definatly becoming a big thing, with celebrities now launching their own versions. I'd definatly look at trying out another brand or style but I think it's safe to say I'm sticking with the polish!

Rating: 4/10

      I think I will buy something like this. My daughter is ten and I think she changes her nail color every other day. Sometimes she bites the nail polish off. This likes like a cool way to keep her from biting her nails and staying out of my nail polish. Thanks for the tip! (Get it tip! LOL!)

      These look funky, although you're probably right to wear them just for a night out. The idea is really good though - I'd never seen these before!
