I knew as soon as I saw these Revlon by Marchesa nail appliqués that they were something a bit special. So special in fact, that I’ve been holding on to them for a suitable occasion and now that party season is upon us I thought it would be the perfect to show them off.
It seems that 2013 was the year of the nail wrap and I think the standard of these products has really stepped up across the board. Because my nails are very curved, any wraps that I wear have to be the thin stretchy kind or just insanely adhesive to have any chance at staying attached. These fit in to the second category!
The range contains 8 different and exquisitely crafted designs each inspired by a dress from Marchesa’s archives. The design I’m sporting is Royal Burgundy. Each pack contains 18 appliqués in a good range of sizes so you’re guaranteed to find a match for your nails and it comes in handy if you mess up a few! I have some left from this set which I’ll be saving to wear as accent nails on occasion.
The sets run at £8.99 each which is a few pounds more than most nail wraps you’ll find on the high street but justified by the exceptional 3D designs. This is the kind of item that I would reserve for a special occasion where I’m going to get dressed up! I think they’d also be perfect for a bride on her wedding day. Silk Rosette (blue florals on clear) could be your something blue and Crown Jewels (gold details on clear) over a pale pink or shimmery white polish would look breathtaking.
I couldn’t resist added a gold spark to my usual make-up to match my nails!
