Meadham Kirchhoff x Nail Rock

Meadham Kirchhoff's Spring/Summer 2012 collection was a loveably barmy explosion of kitsch. The models resembled dolls as they shuffled in their flatforms down the catwalk in candy colours, frou frou frills and cartoon prints. The collection is almost sickly in its unashamed girliness and I adore it. Can I afford any of it? Of course not. Well, maybe this kitty tee if I gave up Nando's for a while... 



So I was thrilled to learn that they were teaming up with Nail Rock to launch a collection of nail wraps inspired by their SS/12 collection exclusively for Topshop. The array of cartoon illustrations (including one suspiciously naughty design..) all come in one pack and are due to launch in the middle of February, retailing at £8. 


I tried the striped Nail Rock wraps that came in a Glossybox I was sent as a sample a while ago and despite my reservations, I actually thought they were incredible! They were easy to apply (as long as you follow instructions to the letter), and lasted forever (around 2 weeks if we're being literal, here) without the need for a topcoat or anything! I only wear a couple of wraps at a time as 'statement nails' so I can make the pack last longer.

I cannot wait to add these adorable wraps to my collection. Fingernails crossed they launch in time for LFW so my hands can look on-trend even if the rest of me doesn't! 

Are you a fan of Nail Rock wraps? What do you make of the Meadham Kirchhoff ones?

  11. great post!
    i thought i had already missed these babies ... glad to hear their coming out soon. Im deffinately going to try grab hold of a pair, and even grow my nails for them, there too kitsch not to be had.

    I tried applying some of the nail wraps doing a manicure for a friend but found them a bit uneasy to use, maybe you could do one of your lovely video posts to help us beauty neanderthals out?
    on the other hand i did use violent lips which are similar of concept and they worked a treat !

    1. That's so strange, I tried Violent Lips and couldn't get it right! We need to swap intel! ;) Will certainly consider doing a YT tutorial on nail wraps. Thanks for commenting! x

  12. ah these are all so cute, i like using foils, it means i can be lazy with nailcare for a few days at least! although i'm completely failing to get my head around why they've included that particular design, haha x

  14. Hahahaha I didn't even notice the sneaky vagina on those nail wraps until I read the comments. I probably would have put them on completely oblivious (if I could ever stop biting my nails).

  20. These are really cool, a great way to add a bit of Meadham Kirchoff to our skint lives! I've never tried nail wraps but I think I will on your recommendation, using them as a statement nail is definitely a good idea.

  27. I think these r awesome, they remind me of the old school riot Grrl movement and kinderwhore fashion that came with it. Nail wraps as a concept are a pretty awesome way of doing prints, but like u say u must follow instructions to the t! A tutorial would b great :)
