More From Nailene

After wearing the couture nails from Nailene for about a day they started popping off a bit ( I think it was because they are so arched and my nails are fairly flat) so I took them off and out the So Natural nails on for my Saturday night out. They held up much better but I still had one pop off, which was probably my fault. I like these nails a lot but they do have their cons. Here's my list of the good and the bad.

The Good:

  • Cheap 
  • Easy to apply
  • Sturdy-thick enough to not break or chip but thin enough to feel natural.
  • Very lightweight-I can't even tell they're on my nails.
  • These have a slight sparkle to them which I really like.
  • Contour to your nail really well. 
  • Short length-I know a lot of people don't like the short length but I prefer this length.
  • Natural looking tip-not bright white and no noticeable line between the nude and white.

The Bad:

  • Tip wear started on day one and the top coat of the nail is flaking off. I think this could be solved by putting your own clear coat over the nail initially.
  • Kinda plastic looking. 


  1. They look nice on you. I've never worn fake nails.

  2. Thanks Lucy! I love the look of acrylics but the idea of them makes me nervous considering how thin and brittle my natural nails are. These were a good alternative for me.

  3. they do look really nice on you like lucy said .. and i've actually never worn fake nails either. i think i've always been a bit intimidated haha ;P
