Review: TMNT Finger Nail pressions


Many years I went with people picking on me.  Telling me that I was a fan of something made for boys.  As a kid, it was not seen normal for a girl to like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  While I took the name Turtle Girl with pride, others tried to use it as an insult.  I could not understand how something could be labeled girls or boys.  When the internet came around most of the TMNT fans were female, which is when I realized that I was not alone.  Now it’s refreshing to see TMNT items made for girls.  Here’s one of those items, that is for young girls.  These are Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles finger nail pressions by Alex Brand.

This cool pack of 20 nails with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is something fun, though sadly only made for children right now.  They’ve got designs of all four Turtles, TMNT and more.  Enough for two full sets of fingernails.  I would wear them if they were my size for events like Toy Fair or Comic Con as I’ve painted my nails as TMNT for those events before. 

In the video I try these on for my first time and remove shortly after.  Though I hear that these can be hard on the nails and can cause trouble if removed the wrong way.  I have not seen these problems with my own eyes, though I’ve heard of people breaking or losing nails.  Also that the glue can cause damage to the top of your nails.  With those notes, I do feel that these should be supervised and not used on a daily basis.  Use with caution and make sure to know all the facts and that your children are responsible with use. 

I personally wish that there was adult releases for these.  As I do not feel that these would be harmful if only used 2 to 3 times a year by someone who’s responsible while doing so.  I would love to use them for the big events that I go too.  Though these are too small for me, so they will just be put away in the collection.

Do you have the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles finger nail pressions?  Do you use these type of products normally?  If so, have you or anyone you know gotten hurt by them or hurt their nails?
