Review and Giveaway - Nailene Ultra Tabs

I'm not one for false nails, they're just not really my thing, but when I was asked to review the Nailene Ultra Tabs and nail studio false nails I thought I would give them a go on my recent holiday. I have only ever worn false nails once before, on a hen night last year. I found them a little fiddly to apply with the glue that was included and, apart from two that fell off during the evening, weren't that easy to remove. Two of them still remained a few days later as they were stuck so fast it hurt to try and pull them off.


The Ultra Tabs are small shaped sticky tabs that claim to last up to 5 days and are simple to apply and also remove, which appealed to me as it meant I could wear them on a night out but remove them afterwards.

I decided to put the claim of being 'water resistant' to the test and applied the nails before I went swimming in the pool. They were indeed easy to apply by peeling the backing off the tab to be used and pressing down the sticky side onto the nail. The tab then comes away from the backing sheet and the nail can then be applied.

The nails stayed stuck fast during and after my swim and also withstood heat, sweat and suncream. Unfortunately though I was unable to change a dirty nappy with the nails on so had to pass that over to my husband, all in the name of research of course!


When it came to removing the nails they were simply rolled off the nail, the adhesive was then rolled of the nail. The instructions state that any remaining adhesive can be removed with nail polish remover but it all came off my nails without needing to.


The Ultra Tabs come in a pack of 24 with 6 different sizes in each pack and are priced at £2.49. The Nailene Nail Studio Nails are priced at £4.69 - each pack contains 24 nails in graduated sizes and a storage tray to keep the nails together. Available in Petite French, Short French, Medium French and Silver Twist Designs.



I have 5 sets (Ultra Tabs & nails in each set) of these to give away to 5 lucky readers.
