Unsurprisingly, I would simply adore to be able to afford to get my nails done at Wah Nails, but unfortunately, it's a little pricey for a student. I hope to try them our for a special occasion, but the trouble is that they're wayy down in London, which isn't ideal.

So anyway, I've found a few other ways to jazz up my nails but still have enough money for, well, clothes, bags, shoes, jewellery and the like...
- Nail Rock Nail Wraps These come in all sorts of cool designs, from plain metallic gold to this funky pink leopard print I tried. There are enough nail wraps in each pack for two full sets of nails, and you basically find the ones that fit your nails best, cut them down to fit, and simply press them on to your nails after applying heat from a hairdryer. It is pretty easy to do, however it took me a few nails to get the hang of it (I ended up with one upside down on my first thumb!) The best thing is, that they're only £6.50, and you can get them from the Nail Rock Website, ASOS, Topshop and River Island. When I wore these I got so many compliments! People were amazed (loads actually thought I'd drawn on the intricate design myself - Pah!). I'd love to know how anyone gets on if you try them out...

Barry M Instant Nail Effects The best way to show you how this revolutionary nail varnish succeeds in jazzing up plain, boring nails, is to watch this video on the Barry M website. I haven't the foggiest how it works, but it's bloody cool! Again, I got tons of compliments all week when I tried it out (Barry M should've paid me for promoting their polish and increasing sales so much!) And just like the glitter topcoat, it's an instant way to majorly increase the amount of looks you can create with your nails. At a mere £3.99, it's a bit of a bloody steal too. I'm going to predict that this is where the future of nails are heading, and I hope they'll (who exactly, I don't know) invent nail effects polishes that create all sorts of different designs. What do you think of the cracked finish?
And a couple of things I'll hopefully be trying soon:

So what are you all waiting for!? The future of our nails looks bright (and sparkly), and I for one can't wait to experiment some more with these last two. I'd love to hear what you have to say about them all, or if you know of any other cool products to try... drop me a comment!
