MUA Fur Effect Nails Review

Hello everyone, happy new year! Hope you’re all having a great start to 2013 so far. 

I went into Superdrug to get my hands on the new MUA Fur Effect Nails yesterday after reading they would be released on the 3rd. Not going to lie I was so excited to get these, I had seen pictures and thought they looked really cool. So I will get on with the review…

MUA Fur Effect Nails in Fluffy Puff £3 

Inside the packaging 

I found it really hard to pick which shade to get as they all looked really nice but in the end I went for the light pink colour called Fluffy Puff. There are 5 different shades available:

Fluff and Cuddles, Boo Boo Fluff, Fluffy Bobbin Fluffy Puff, Fluffy Fuzz

 So what’s my actual opinion after trying these?

I really don’t like them. The first thing that annoyed me was access to the fluff, I had to use a knife to cut open the plastic to be able to get the fluff as it wouldn’t come out of the small holes in the plastic which took me about half an hour to do, so annoying!

Then there’s the application, it’s so messy. I painted my nails with Barry M Strawberry Ice Cream and then dipped it into the fluff and tapped off the excess and patted down to smooth it over then left it to dry. After around an hour when I had allowed them to fully dry I looked down at them and was actually happy with the outcome, it looked really good and so different to anything I had done on my nails before.

Here’s what they looked like…

Before washing- looking nice and fluffy
After washing- all clumpy and falling off 

The one thing I was worried about was how they where going to look after getting wet when I wash my hands, so I tested it out. This is when it all went down hill. It changed colour when I washed it and it just wouldn’t go back to it’s normal colour after it was dry and the nail varnish underneath was really noticeable. It then started going really lumpy and just looked so horrible, I really wasn’t happy with how it looked. I had had enough with it and took it off. The removal was the best part.

Sorry MUA for such a bad review but this product is just awful and I won’t be buying any more of these Fur Effects again. Have you tried these? What’s your opinion? If not would you try these?

  • Thanks for the review, I was looking forward to trying them but I don't think they'll suit my short nails and I do washing up a lot :(, xoxo.

    • A big no no for someone who does lots of washing up, I wouldn't recommend them to anyone. xxx

  • This is so crazy haha, what will they think of next!? Great review though, they do look quite cool at first but then it gets dissappointing x

    • I know right, they do some crazy nail products on the market now. And thanks, and yeah such a let down x

  • I bought three of these but still waiting on them to come. I will let you know your thoughts when i have tried them. But at least i got mine with the free offer of make up at Christmas if it does go down hill. xx

    • Can't wait to see your opinions, sorry if I've put a downer on the product, it just didn't work for me xx

  • oooh i saw these but didnt understand what they were, dont think its for me somehow :L x

    • Wouldn't recommend them, I was confused as well until I looked them up x

  • They didn't appeal to me at ALL. They remind me of when you're removing nail polish and get cotton wool stuck onto your nails. Not attractive. x

    • That is a great description! it is just like that x

  • Brought this today then after reading this i dont know what to think, will have to try it out myself x

    Going to try later but worried how bad they will be after a bath. You would have thought they would have considered these daily tasks 🙁

  • I bought Fluff and Cuddles today and I absolute love it. Not very long lasting but I found if you followed MUA's video on YouTube it helps with them being less clumpy etc. Definitely just a one night mani though…more for party's I'd say! I might even try putting a Matt topcoat underneith for my review, might help the polish to be less noticeable if the fluff does come off sooner than you want! Great review anyway 🙂 x
