Andrea Fulerton Nail Boutique have expanded their popular line of nail products with a set of ultra-cute glitters encased in little ‘puff’ tubes… let me tell you a bit about them…
Four shades of glitter that are designed to be ‘puffed’ onto a wet nail… the design of the ‘pen’ is supposed to afford directional coverage, giving you the ability to do cool things like create half-moons and glitter tips.
Frankly, I’d do a better job at creating a precision design if I snorted the glitter up my nose and sneezed it onto my nails.
The actual glitter is beautiful! Fine, super-sparkly and not even too gritty… but the whole puff system is just massively flawed. When I first squeezed the tube to activate the puff, nothing happened.
So of course… I squeezed a little harder, and the harder I squeezed, the more my eyes slitted in anticipation of a puff that would put a mushroom cloud to shame. The anticipation damn near killed me, but nothing came out. I recomposed myself, by which time my nail was of course, too dry to be of much use.
Eventually… I got a puff – the most anti-climactic moment of my life. A splodge of glitter about half a centimetre away from where I’d wanted it placed.
Ultimately, these are beautiful nail glitters with a really awful delivery system that just doesn’t work well enough to create any kind of precision effect. You may aswell just get a pot and dip your nails in that way.
Andrea Fulerton Glitterati Nails are priced at £10 available to buy at Superdrug. Yano, if you really want to.
