Good evening everyone,
today I have the first of a few posts about Fing’rs products, which were sent to me to test out.
The flashing pink brand Fing’rs specializes in artificial fingernails and nail decorations like nail wraps, studs and stones. They are on the market for over 20 years and established to become the Markets leader for artificial fingernails in Europe.
I have a lot of experience with their products, since I used them regularly during my teens and early twenties.
If you remember, I also used their Fashion Normal Acrylic nails for my “Dracula untold” manicure in September.
I was very surprised and excited about the amount of products I got sent to try, because all these are things I haven’t tried so far.
What did I get?
as well as a Fing’rs key chain.
I want to try all of these products and review them one by one, BUT since my nails have a nice length at the moment I won’t apply the artificial nails for now. I am quiet sure though that my nails will chip again and I will have to file them down some time. That will be the perfect time to try these, so please be patient ;)
Meanwhile I will use the other products, starting with the pink glitter flower nail wraps today.
I really like the design. It is cute and girly with a nice color combination of dark burgundy pink, white and silver with cute little butterflies on top.
After I took the nail wraps out of the package I realized that they were pretty stiff and thick, at least for my taste. In general I find it quite difficult to apply wraps like this, which is why I usually don’t use them. But I always love to try new products and am open to be positively surprised. Do you remember the O.P.I. nail wraps I used for my new years nails? They were a surprise, since they were nice and thin and therefore easy to apply without any flaws.
Anyway, the Fing’rs nail wraps are placed on a clear piece of plastic and come in different designs, shapes and sizes. I liked how round the bottom of the wraps are, which would be placed at the cuticle area. The design switches, you have wraps with butterflies on the left or right and also on the white/silver base or the dark burgundy pink base. I really found it positive because you are more free on using the wraps in different ways.
Sadly I was a little disappointed about the application process of the wraps. It is positive that they are strong and not easy to rip, but that also makes a flawless application very difficult. As you can see in the pictures, the wraps don’t adjust well to the curves of the nails. This causes folds and bumps especially at the left and right edge as well as the tip of the nail.
I tried pretty hard to apply it without flaws, but it was just not possible.
I will contact the Fing’rs team and let them know what I think and ask them if all people have these problems and, if so, I will ask if they could find a way to make them thinner so they would be easier to pull a bit and apply without folds and bumps.
How do you feel about these? Have you tried them? How do you like the design?
Let me know in the comments below.
Thanks again to the team of Fing’rs Europe for sending these through.
