I get the ones they sell in boots. Can't remember the name, something Hollywood I think but I get the natural looking ones, not the scary fake ones.

I was so surprised at how good they looked and so was everyone else, they are about £8. The only thing to watch is you try all the sizes over your nails to get the ones that fit best. Nothing more fake looking than a nail that is too wide, stuck on your finger!

I get elegant touch ones. They look natural. Although I have now stopped wearing them as they ruined my nails. I have been trying to strengthen them.

Elegant Touch are the most realistic.

But I still had to file them down to a shorter and more squoval shape and paint over the nasty and tacky french manicure effect.

The do ruin your nails though. I wore them a lot when I was a chronic nail biter. I'm so glad I've grown my own back smile
