I’ve saved so much money by ditching my pricey manicure – I swear by Primark's false nails, they look good & last AGES | The Sun


A WOMAN who was spending hundreds on getting her nails done has ditched the pricey manicures to save money, and has been using Primark falsies instead.

The self-proclaimed "Duchess of Thrift" took to her TikTok page to share a video, as she began: "If you’ve been watching me for a while, you will have noticed on my earlier videos that I got stick because I was still getting my nails done while talking about the cost of living crisis and what have you. 

"Well, the nails went by the way side – look at the state of these, minging, I can’t believe I’m publicly sharing them.

"So I’m taking a tip from my teenage daughter.

"What I’ve done is bought some of the £1 nail glue from Primark and a little packet of their nails.

"So I’m going to give them a go because to get a full set of nails put on, can cost £40, to get them infilled is twenty something pounds.
