#Nailspo - Bling Art are NAILIN' it*


New Year's Eve, Christmas and the Party Season are fast approaching. With spur of the moment nights out inevitably waiting to happen and the equally inevitable 'fully booked' sign at your favourite nail salon, life begs the question of  'What are you going to do about your nails?!' 

You simply can't get tagged on Facebook not looking your best, amiright? Especially in those group Sambuca shot photos - [yeno the ones I mean; the staged photos where everyone poses holding their full shot glasses in a circle. The ones where downing your shot before the perfect Insta photo is achieved is a serious criminal offence] - where it might not matter if your brows are on fleek, but if your nails are a bit on the grim side they will be captured in photographic evidence forever and evaaaa.

I'll stop rambling on now, cos there's one simple solution to all of this - Bling Art. Their extensive range of unique and stylish products will allow you to take your nail destiny into your own hands [literally] this festive season; by doing your own manicure. No matter how last minute your arrangements, Bling Art have got your back. Their high quality falsies can be applied in less than ten minutes and look just like salon created nails. Bling Art nails can help you save time, money and stress this festive season; without compromising on style or quality. Or having to maintain small talk with your nail technician. #Winning

Bling Art very kindly sent me a few packs of their false nails to try, to show you guys just how easy it is to get on point nails at home -applied by yourself and in under ten minutes. I chose these on trend Cherry Stiletto False Acrylic Nails*, a pack of French Manicure Pink Sparkle Nails* and these French Manicure White Glitter Nails* for this post.

Each set contains 24 nails [in a variety of sizes], nail glue, a nail file and a cuticle stick. Although physically I am a whopper, my nails are surprisingly quite small; so I was really pleased to find that these kits catered for my feeble little fingers.


Bling Art have an insanely wide range collection to choose from and I was really impressed with the quality of the nails when they arrived.

Style #1 - Cherry Stiletto False Acrylic Nails*, £ 6.79

I've never actually worn stiletto nails before, despite how insanely on-point they are this season. I adore this burgundy shade for Autumn and felt like a total vamp with these claws. I LOVE the way my hands look dressed in these nails; they're ideal for the Christmas Party Season and a style I'll be reaching for pre-night out. Though I did struggle adapting to having long nails at first, I soon got used to it - and it was well worth the learning curve, for the amount of compliments I got wearing them!

I love the length and shape of these nails - they're not too much longer than my natural talons, so they felt really natural to wear. I'm a girly girl through and through, so these pink sparkly numbers ticked every box for me. I've been perving on gradient nail tutorials on YouTube for ages - and I can guarantee that this method of getting the look is tons easier!! The neutral colour of these nails with subtle glitter means they're great for day or night.

I love these nails. They're natural looking with a splash of glam - and I felt like a proper functioning adult, with my life in actual order when I wore these. Again, they're a natural length and a square shape [just how I like my nails] so there was little to no time needed to get used to them. Office life has never been so stylish! *Que over dramatic typing to accentuate my new nails*

Applying each of these styles is incredibly simple. Here are the steps I took for a professional looking application:

1. Wipe your nails with a nail polish remover wipe, to eliminate any natural oils,
2. Use the cuticle stick to neaten up the skin around your nail beds,
3. Use the nail file to buff the surfaces of your nails, to give the glue something to grip onto [for a longer lasting finish] and file your natural nails into shape,
4. Measure up - Bling Art's nails come in 12 different sizes, so compare these against your own nails before you get going - to get the perfect fit,
5. Apply some glue to your nail and a little to the back of the acrylic nail. Press your chosen nail into place and hold for a few seconds, whilst the glue works its magic. Et Voila! You're done.

Don't worry if you're still a bit unsure on how easy falsies are to apply -  as I'll be uploading some videos soon on how to achieve these looks yourself, and how flipping easy it is to nail nail art. In the meantime, you can check out Bling Art's website, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, YoutubePinterest and Amazon accounts for more inspo.
