There are 8 different styles to choose from in the House of Holland range with shapes ranging from (what I would call) the classic round as seen above to the stiletto (long and very pointed) and a whole host of designs. I also picked up the Heartbreaker nails at the same time and they are by far my favourite design of the 8 but unfortunately they were just too long, pointy and sharp for me and I removed them almost instantly.
Zig Zag Stardust were a lot easier to wear than Heartbreaker, the shape isn't as severe which makes them more practical, not that I'm saying I would wear them to work because I wouldn't but in comparison, they're the tamer of the two!
The set comes with 24 nails in 10 different sizes and 5 (I think!) different designs. The whole idea is to mix and match the patterns to create a super cool clashing mani. As I said, Heartbreaker was without doubt my favourite design so when I couldn't wear them I was disappointed as Zig Zag Stardust is probably about as far away from my usual style of anything as can be so I was more than a little apprehensive about the final look.
As you can see they're definitely not for the faint-hearted! Despite my initial concerns I actually loved them in the end because they were so different for me and looked really fun. I wore them out to dinner with my friend and received endless compliments on them which sounds crazy but people stopped to comment on the train, at the bar, at our table! Even the waiter had something to say so they're certainly attention grabbing!
Elegant Touch are my favourite false nail brand and the quality of the House of Holland nails didn't disappoint, they were typically flexible and easy to apply and once applied they didn't budge! I'm really impressed by the quality and style of these nails and I would definitely try others from the range, I also have my eye on the Little Mix for Elegant Touch range, particularly the Jessy ones!
What do you think - would you be brave enough to try one of the House of Holland kits?
