I eat, sleep and breath nails!

Having wanted to become a nail tech since the age of 14 you'd think I'm some variation of a girly girl, you couldn't be more wrong. I'm a rugby playing ex power lifter who would rather watch a bit of gore and horror than a chick flick. But I do love pretty nails and have had acrylics since being a teenager.

I trained as a nail technician in 2009 and built up a wonderful client base all over the UK and Cyprus. I have had the absolute honour to train with some of the UKs top technicians and at the end of 2019 there is no way I'd have believe you if you told me I'd soon be coming to the end of my (in person) nail career.

As with the rest of the world 2020 caused mayhem for my business, Covid hit and from March I could no longer see clients face to face, I was devastated. My time with my clients was not only my creative outlet but also an emotional one too, these people had become life long friends and I looked forward to seeing each and every one of them.

Because they are totally bloody awesome and wanted to support me during the awful time of COVID19 they started asking about press on nails, something I had done before and was willing to do to keep my sanity whilst being housebound with 3 small children.

Press on nails have become so popular and there are some amazing sets out there but none (at the time I opened) that fit my "Alternative" style. Being a bit of a witch and all round spooky bitch I love anything alternative, very rarely will you see me with a run of the mill set of nails either on myself or in my shop.

I have been incredibly lucky that my shop quickly replaced my income from seeing clients and that I am in the position now where it is my full time income and I can keep my family safe during this very weird time.

I love each and every person who purchases from me (except those of you who don't leave a 5* review ;)

Frequently asked questions
Why Chose AltGirlNails

Not only do I love what I do I also take great pride in my shop and strive for perfection. I work hard to ensure customer satisfaction at all times

Custom and personalised orders

I love taking on custom work, before you order simply drop me a message with your ideas and we can work together to design your perfect product.

Sizing details

You have 4 options when it comes to choosing the size that is best for you;

1. Choose one of the pre sized packs of 10 nails. These come is S, M, L, XL

2. Choose the “Custom” option. This is also for 10 nails but you will send me either your measurements or nail size numbers for a perfect fit

3. Choose the pack of 20 which contains 2 of each sized nail. Most people manage to get 2 sets out of this and it’s ideal to have an extra if you loose one

4. Pack of 24, this is the same as the set of 20 but I also include an extra 2 each of the 2 most popular sized nails. This is the perfect place to start if you are not sure about sizing or measuring your own nails

How do I measure my nails?

On each listing I have an info graphic explaining exactly how you measure your nails at home, if you need any help after reading then please feel free to contact me.

How quickly will my order ship?

Shipping times depend on the time of year and how busy I am, I always update the estimated shipping times for listing and ship on or a day or two before this date.

How long will they last?

I've had clients wear their press ons for 4 weeks at a time. If you remove them correctly and store them in the silver bag you can reuse them at a later date too.

How do I apply the nails?

Your nails will come laid out in the order that you apply them so no fussing around choosing sizes from a bunch of loose, mixed up nails. The included stick it kit contains everything you need to apply them with full instructions. You can also check out my instagram @altgirlnails for video tutorials

Are the nails flexible and will they pop off?

I make my nails with salon grade acrylic, they look and feel just like regular salon nails. They are strong and don't discolour/split like store brought press ons can. The best part is IF one pops off you can glue it back on yourself in less than 2 minutes.
