Budget Mummy : The Latest from NCLA Nail Wraps

Being a mummy to one active toddler means that I do not have the luxury of getting out of the house often and much less ever getting a manicure done. Furthermore, ever since I had stopped working, I have been trying my best to stretch the dollar so that I stay financially independent even though the hubs could still comfortably provide for us. (Yup, I don’t demand allowance from him and pay for my own stuff still)


So instead of going for a manicure which could cost at least S$20 (home-based pricing?) to more than S$50. Why not DIY? And because DIY-ing your own nail art can be such a pain in the ass unless you are incredibly talented with deft hands. Why not use NCLA nail wraps?

[Review] NCLA Nail Wraps Now Available At Zalora!

Fancy a manicure but ain’t got the time or money to grab one? Well, I’m excited to introduce the NCLA Nail Wraps. As we all know that DIY nail wraps are all the rage now. You could get them done anywhere and any time! How convenient.

Did you know that NCLA collaborated with LA-based celebrity jewelry designer Melody Ehsani to create a nail wrap collection loved by the Californian press and worn by top celebrities, including Beyoncé herself. The label also teamed up with Nailing Hollywood, a trio of celebrity nail stylists that was the go-to nail styling agency for Hollywood film productions.


The good news is that these exclusive collection of nail wraps which made NCLA a celebrity-favorite among Hollywood lovelies Rachel McAdams, Vanessa Hudgens and Zoe Saldana, are now readily available at Zalora.SG. Yey!

And did I mention that I was given a kit to try out? These are high quality nail lacquers as compared to the ones I’d previously tried and took hours to get right. The wraps are sturdy and do not tear easily upon application.

I was very pleased to learn that each kit contains a NCLA nail file and 44 wraps, which yields around 3 – 4 applications. These are going at S$23 per kit, so that works out to a mere S$5+ per use., which is really affordable.

It’s pretty simple to use these nail lacquers. If you flip to the back, you will see that there’s an instruction guide.

Basically, you just apply clear lacquer on your nails first. Next, you stick the nail wraps on, with the rounded parts towards the cuticles. File the excess away and ta-da! You have gorgeous nails which you do not even need to waste time waiting for them to dry.

Here’s a tutorial on how to apply the wraps if you are still unsure: http://www.shopncla.com/pages/how-to
