At the beginning of the year (which doesn’t seem any where near as long ago as it actually is!) I was invited down to talk press on nails and enjoy some cake and tea with Jameela Jamal who is the new face of Elegant Touch Express Nails. I’m not sure what I was expecting her to be like but she was super down to earth and friendly.
Jameela explained that her life can be very busy and loves a quick and easy mani in the back of a cab. She spoke about her initial struggles with fashion when first on television but how she feels that nail art can be a really fun and easy way to experiment with colours. Unlike fashion where you may feel you have to look a certain way when it comes to press on nails they’re nondiscriminatory.
I don’t often wear press on nails myself as I actually have quite strong, long nails but these seem like a fabulous alternative for anyone that doesn’t or does but is simply looking for a quick on the go manicure. I haven’t had a chance to use them yet (I always save stuff like this for days I want particularly nice nails) but they claim to last 7 days and instead of using glue they come with preglued adhesive pads which makes them particularly great for on the go. They come in 24 different patterns and colours from neon to nudes and various nail art patterns.
When said special day comes and I finally decide to wear these I will be sure to post another update.
I would love to know what you think of these nails and have you tried them?
