Primark Falsies – My ‘Go To’ for Longer Nails!

I’ve made no secret of my love for Primark’s false nails over on my Instagram (if we’re not following each other, click HERE and let’s be Insta friends 😀), so thought they deserved a wee shout on the blog.

At £1, you can’t really go wrong with these bad boys. They do them in a couple of different shapes, catering to individual styles and preferences, but my fav are def the Almond range.  Giving a bit of length and a soft shape – they’re ideal for day and night use.


Word of warning, the glue is super strong, so when you’re cutting the nib, just make sure not to get any on your fingers – or they will quite quickly become stuck together (not speaking from experience at all! 🙄)


I also have the nudes and a berry colour to try out soon. Will pop them on this post once I’ve worn them, so make sure you come back to visit, or follow me over on Twitter or Instagram!

Gel Extensions for Natural Looking Long Nails


After getting back my holiday and sending a picture of a sparkly new addition to my finger, after the initial ‘oooohs’ and ‘aaaaahs’ from family and friends, I was hit with a resounding ‘now you need to get your nails done’!

I’m a terrible nail biter, so I felt my short little nails could also do with a bit of elongating.  Having never had any form of gel polish before, I was a little hesitant on what to go for – gel or acrylic? I also struggled on where to go.  Sure there are plenty of nail salons in Aberdeen, but I’d heard some horror nail stories and didn’t want to end up with wrecked or  super broken nails after.

Upon recommendation, I got in touch with Linton and Mac who were great at giving me advice over the phone, telling me the differences between acrylics and gel extensions.  Opting for the gel (a lesser evil on nail damage compared to acrylics – apparently!) I booked my appointment and headed along.

Kayleigh was also so good at letting me know the process and was lovely chatting with her through the 1hr 15 appointment.  With a great selection of colours, I opted for this festive red.

Advising that the nails usually last 2-3 weeks before needing infills (or removal), I left the salon admiring my talons!

I love love love my longer nails, if only I could grow my nails this long in real life (and save me from the £45 bill! 😀)

Rimmel’s 14 Day Super Gel Polish – Product Review ðŸ’…🏻

I struggle to get my nail polish to stay chip free for longer than a day (or night out!), so love a longer lasting Gel option.  I’ve had big problems with allergies when getting my nails done using the UV option before (swollen giant fingers are not a good look – and v painful!!), so the lure of a gel finish from a ‘normal’ nail polish range was too tempting to knock back – especially when it was by Rimmel, one of my fav ‘drugstore’ brands.

I put the ‘Super Gel’ varnish to the test and rated how it performed over the following categories…
