Product Review: Nail Wraps
One day I got really tired of painting my nails. They kept getting messed up and I would do a touch up on them everyday. I finally did some research and found nail wraps. It's a wrap that you put on your nail. The adhesive is suppose to stick your nail for 10 or more days. I highly recommend adding a top coat. I always use the Sally Hansen Step 2 gel top coat on my nails. These nail wraps can be hard to apply at first, but once you get used to it, it's easy. Line up the nail wrap on your nail, press down into cuticles and trim off the excess using nail clippers. File edges downwards if needed. I continued to research where to buy. I tried expensive ones and cheap ones. I like shopping on etsy.com, because they are homemade products and I decided to give that website a chance. I also usually shop on Amazon so I also tried some nail wraps from there. I tried 10 different brands/companies for three months. My nails are really petite size so this was an interesting and long process of finding which company I actually liked. This is my honest review on all of these nail wraps.
Each pack comes with a set of 16 wraps. The prices range from $11.00-$13.00USD. I got samples from a consultant from their company. I notice they don't have much of a color variety to choose from, but I decided to try them anyway. The packaging is excellent and really well put together. These wraps fit on my tiny nails pretty well and they seemed to last for a week and a half. After four days, the tips of my nails started to wear off. Other then that, I do recommend this company if you want to pay a little more then the average price of $7.00USD.
Nailzey (Etsy Store)
I really like the packaging these nail wraps came in. $6.70USD can get you a set of 16 including shipping prices and tax. They had quick shipping and they are located in the U.S. The problem is, the nail wraps didn't have enough adhesion on them and they only stayed on for one day. I do not recommend this company.
Kellisbandstand (Etsy Store)
$7.63 can get you a set of 16 of these wraps. This includes shipping and tax. They are located in the U.S., so shipping didn't take too long. They fit my nails pretty well. The packaging can improve a little bit more. There was no chipping into a week of wearing these nail wraps. I do recommend this Etsy store, but I still wouldn't pay that much for a set to only last a week.
ThatGirlsNails (Etsy Store)
$3.27 can get you a set of 16 nail wraps. They are located in the U.S. The shipping was quick and the packaging can improve. These lasted for a week and a half with no chipping. I highly recommend this Etsy store. I would pay this much money for the wraps to last as long as they did.
$9.39 can get you 5 sets of nail wraps with 14 wraps in each pack. Each pack was a different color set. They do not have a wide variety of combo packs to choose from but they lasted for one week, so I didn't complain. The shipping was quick and they did fit my tiny nails. I highly do recommend this company. I just wish they had a better color variety to choose from.
AffordableNailstrips (Etsy Store)
$3.27 includes shipping and tax with this Etsy store. A package of 16 nail wraps was included and it came in a nice envelope. The packaging can improve, but they did fit on my nails really well. They lasted for a week and a half. I do recommend this company.
BraveNewBeauty (Etsy Store)
A set of 20 nail wraps for $8.26 with this company. It came in really nice packaging. They do have a excellent variety of colors and patterns. I just really wish they lasted for more then one day. They do have excellent customer service and did send me another pack to try, but I didn't waste my time to try on another set and risk having them come off at the end of the day.
I was really skeptical buying from this company, considering they are located in China. This order included 8 different sets of nail wraps for $17.97. Each set included 16 nail wraps. The colors are a really beautiful ombre look. There was different colors of ombre. Four of the packs were too big to apply to my nails, but the other four fit perfectly. I don't know why, but the four that were too big was in a different packaging. Weird to me, but I tried them on and they lasted for a week and a half. I do recommend this company. I believe I'll continue ordering through them.
ExpressManicure (Etsy Store)
I decided to try a Etsy store outside of the U.S. This shipping did take 9 days considering they are located in the U.K. $8.03 includes shipping and tax through airmail. They started chipping after one day and only lasted two days. They do have a good color variety, but I don't recommend this Etsy company.
NailsEH! (Etsy Store)
$9.60 can get you a set of 24 nail wraps. They do have a awesome color variety. The packaging was really strange, because it was very similar to BraveNewBeauty packaging. These nail wraps came from Alberta, Canada. They did take 10 days to come in the mail. Waiting that long and only lasting one day, I do not recommend this company.
