CUSTOM MADE NAIL TIPS ESPECIALLY FOR YOU!!
Now I can create Nail Tips for you , all custom made by me, using Gel Polish, glitters and foil , just like I would in the salon.
You can walk into any drug store and find racks or packages of press-on nails for sale. While you can certainly save money going with these options, you need to know that the quality of the fake nails that you will get is not the best. The nails themselves are not made to last long and will not have the color, design, or sparkle that you may like. You then will need to spend the time to colour and paint them yourself, and you may still not get the look you want. I've been doing nails for 18 years so have the experience to create the nails you desire.
BASIC SET from £12.00
Choose your colour and the basic option also includes 2 signature nails .
Every set will come with stick on tabs, alcohol wipes, orange wood stick, and a mini nail file. All presented in a lovely gift box.
BASIC SET WITH A GLUE - from £17.00
This is the same as the basic set but this will come with a brush on nail glue. Using a glue would mean you could wear these nails for up to 2 weeks.
ADD ON PER NAIL from 50p
If you want glitters, foils , or nail art stamping added to more than the signature nails then the add would be 50p per nail.
SIZING SAMPLE PACK - £3.00
1 Nail Style with 1 of each size for you to choose the right fit.
REPLACEMENT NAIL - £2.00
Lost, broke a nail or the fit isn't quite right, you can purchase replacement nails for your design.
FULL SET OPTION - from £17.00
Rather than the standard set of 10 nails, I will paint 20 nails , 2 of each size.
Your Design and Pricing will Always be Discussed before I start making the nails.
During this time I am unable to offer for you to come to me for me to measure your nails, so there is a way for you to measure at home and let me know your sizes.
How To Measure:
Hold a measuring tape horizontally across the widest part of your natural nail.
If you don’t have measuring tape, just place some sticky tape over the widest part and mark where your nail meets the skin. Then place it over a ruler to get the measurement
For the length, measure from your cuticle to where you would like the length of your nail , if not specified the nails will be sent in their full length.
Shape Preference - How would you like the nails shaped?
How long do the nails stay on?
Wear time depends on how well you prep your natural nails before application, how rough you are on your hands and your choice of adhesive. With nails tabs you can wear them for a few days or even a few hours if you're wearing them for a special occasion. With nail glue, for about 1 to 3 weeks.
I'm worried that my nails are going to pop off. Any tips on how I can avoid this?
Make sure to follow our Nail Prep instructions included with your order. This step is key to long wear. In addition, you can apply a Dehydrator and Primer for better adhesion. This is the same product nail techs use before gel or acrylic application so the product can adhere to your nails.
You can also try using both adhesive tabs and nail glue together. Follow nail prep instructions and apply the nail tabs. Then apply nail glue over the tabs or on the back of the nail. Press and hold the nails in place for a few seconds. This dual adhesive combo allows longer wear time.
Can you replace a lost nail?
Yes. Please contact me to order your replacement nail. Cost is £2.00 per replacement nail.
What if the nails I purchased don't fit?
Due to the handmade nature of the product I am not held responsible if the wrong size is ordered. Sizing sample packs can be ordered (£5.00 each) and please view the size guide to help you find the perfect fit.
If the size is off on a nail or two I suggest purchasing the Replacement nail option.
How many nails come in each set?
All sets come with 10 nails in the size you select. You have the option to purchase a Full Set option that set comes with 20 nails.
