MUA Fur-Effect Nails



After purchasing and trying this product today I was a little on the fence as to whether to blog about it or not.  Frankly, I did not get on with this product at all and was a little disappointed.
The 'Fur-effect' nails was launched by MUA recently and is currently available in five shades. According to the instructions all you need to do is apply 2 coats of nail polish similar to the colour of the "fluff" and then tap the pot over the nails. This can be done several times until you are happy. There are several things that I found difficult with this product. Firstly the 'fluff' is an absolute pain to get out of the pot and I spent the majority of the time shaking it every which way possible. It was also quite tricky to get it on to the nail without just going all over the table. Once it was on however, the nails really start to look good. I tried to touch up little bits that I had missed with my polish but the brush was getting absolutely covered in fluff, I really don't know how it would be possible to do more than one layer without ruining your nail polish brushes. Because of this I just left my nails how they were which were more or less 'ok'. I didn't really know what to do after my nails had dried but my hands were covered in fluff so decided to wash them. It was really strange as the fluff just got wet and bits here and there were starting to fall off, and they started looking like a balding mans head (as can be seen in the picture above). This wasn't bad for a first attempt however, having my nails like this for the last 3 hours the majority of the fluff has come off and all that's left reminds me when you brush past something with wet nails. 

Overall I'm not too upset but would have really loved if this product has worked. I paid £2 and although I usually recommend MUA I was a little unsure how this product would work. I think the idea is good but the product and the practicality really let it down. I would be prepared to pay more to guarantee that it was going to be better quality.

Have you tried MUA Fur-effect Nails?

  1. I was curious about these, but they sound like a bit of a disaster. I think I'd just get annoyed with it!
    Like they say though, you don't know til you try.

  3. Hi :) I've also tried this and was disappointed, I thought it might be the next 'in' thing after the crackle and the magnetics nail polishes that everyone have been wearing but this was sadly quite a letdown. Shame really as a lot of MUA products can be good especially for the price.

  5. I found they worked better if you dipped your wet fingernail straight in the pot, and just rubbed off the extra when dry! :)
