Make Me Nails App Review

I love painting my nails and I usually don't keep any one color or style on them for too long. Unfortunately I'm not that great with traditional nail art, but luckily there's an app called Make Me Nails that lets me create all the designs I could ever hope for!

*Disclaimer: This product was sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review.

Make Me Nails is pretty self-explanatory: you can use the app to make your own custom nail wraps! The app is currently only available for iOS (iPhone), so apologies to my readers who have an Android phone or otherwise.

Make Me Nails is the brainchild of television star and social media influencer G. Hannelius and content creator Lauren Jones. They teamed up with celebrity manicurist Tom Bachik and powerhouse brand Minx to bring the DIY nail wrap experience to life!

I took some screenshots to show you what the app itself looks like. As you can see, the design is very cute and girly! The first five are all of the premade patterns you can choose from, and the last one is what it looks like when you first open the app.

I found the app to be fairly user-friendly. The only thing I had difficulty with was figuring out how to delete a design once I realized I didn't like it. I thought I had to click the specific nail it was on first and then the delete button, but it was the other way around. Other than that, though, the instructions are pretty straightforward and the entire process was easy, including checkout.

Speaking of checkout, a set of wraps costs $12 and they ship internationally!

I decided to make one set of nails from the premade designs and another with a photo I uploaded myself so that I could report on both options for you. The floral pattern is the premade one, and the galaxy one is a picture I uploaded from my phone.

You really can use any image you want. The app gives you the option of taking a photo or uploading one that you already have saved. If you wanted to make wraps with your own face on them you could (no judgment here)!

I was impressed by the quality of the printing on the wraps. I've tried other brands before that were not great; they looked like they were printed on an old inkjet from the 90s. These, however, are really high quality! I was a bit worried at first because the galaxy ones I uploaded myself repeated at the tops, but it didn't end up mattering because you file off the top of the wrap anyway (the rounded edge is what goes along your cuticles).

And here's the final product! Please ignore my disgusting cuticles, I'm terrible at remembering to moisturize them. Anyway, I found the application process to be super easy. The wraps are basically stickers, but they adhere well and very smoothly. I've also used other wraps that did not go on smoothly and I ended up having ridges in them, but that was definitely not the case with these. It was also really easy to file off the edges.
Bottom Line: I'm very happy with my Make Me Nails experience! It took me a few minutes to find my way around the app, but overall I thought that it was easy to use and that the actual wraps are really high quality. I love that you can really make a wrap out of any image you want! Oh, and shipping was super fast, too!


  1. Too bad this is iOS only! Fun idea, but I guess I'll have to wait for the Android app to check it out. :P
