Nail Wraps - they seem to be all the rage this season. Has anyone here tried them? Please share your experience. My friend said hers lasted 7 days. I am still indecisive about buying them.

I've tried a few different brands. They do seem to be long lasting. I had one brand (don't remember the name, got it at Henri Bendel's) last about 10 days. Of drugstore brands the Sally Hansen wraps still looked good at 7 days. They take a little practice to get them right, but they're fun. The designs have gotten really creative.

I haven't tried them, but I definitely would like to. I have a hard time getting traditional nail polish to last 7 days without chipping at least slightly, and I'd like to see how much wear that I can get out of the wraps. I really like the gold nails pictured above!

I got some from my Influenster box I didn't really care for the style (they were free) But, they did last about 7 days or more and it was easy to put them on. I think I may try them again.

I've gotten up to 10 days of wear from the Sally Hansens, which are the only ones I've used yet.

I tried the Julep ones from one of my mystery boxes and was extremely underwhelmed. Within a day the tips were really bad looking and one had come off. I don't know if it was because the design was on the thick side or not, but by day three I was so frustrated I took them all off. 

Kiss, on the other hand, I had great luck with. Not ten days, but a solid 7 before they started to peel a little. They're pretty inexpensive, too.

I'm not fond of nail wraps because my nails are short and I found most products tend to be wasteful. I wish they made not only different width but different lengths.

Interesting. My nails are pretty short, but I didn't feel (with the Hansens, anyway) that I wound up wasting very much. Then again, I was wrapping the tips, so it did use a bit more in the tuck.

How short are you nails? I keep mine pretty short where I can't wrap under my nails but that's actually a fantastic tip.

LOL I didn't even think of a pun! But your nails are as long as mine. I'm going to have to try the Kiss ones I have.

My nails are about that same length, too. I found with the Kiss ones there's enough in the pack and enough of the sizes fit my nails that I can get 2 full manis out of them, so the value is there with that brand (for me) at least.

Thank you for the comments. Then Sally Hansens it is, hopefully I can find them in a beauty shop here in Ireland. If not then the internet it is!

I really like them. You've got to be careful on some brands as they last like a day or two but most brands last me about a week or two. Usually in Australia they are about $15-$35 on just one set depending on the brand so I usually order online from ***************.com as they have plenty from there and also very cheap.

I have a box of those but havent used them yet because they are so long. So what do you do? cut them in half with scissors?

I love them! They are easier than nail art and last for a good while.
