Personail Nail Wraps Q&A

I recently got introduced to a new-to-me nail wrap brand Personail. If you follow me on Instagram you would have already seen how much I love these! So many awesome designs to choose from, and they don't need a heater or any fancy stretching techniques to apply. It's literally peel them off the sheet and rub them onto your nail and file off excess. Sooooo easy! There is also a top coat you can use if you want to get long wear out of them. They're also super flexible, which is great when you wear acrylics and need something that can deal with the extra curve in the nail (if you scroll back a few months you will see the trouble I've had in the past with other brands!). It is an Australian brand and available at David Jones. Anyway, enough of my gushing.

I have a little Q&A with the lovely Alice Ho who owns Personail.

Tell us a little about yourself.
My name is Alice and I am a 26 yr old designer, dog lover and most importantly nail art enthusiast. I started Personail Nail Wraps almost 3 years ago and now do what I love everyday as a career.

Why wraps? 
We tried a lot of different materials on the market, namely stickers. But we found that creating our own nail polish wraps had the best finish making it a beautiful way of getting nail polish on your nails without waiting for it to dry.

How did Personail start?
I first started Personail in 2015 as a passion project to solve a problem of mine. At that time, I was working as a designer on the weekdays and on the weekends I would religiously paint my nails with crazy nail art. This was taking up hours, and I ended up chipped and ruined nails, within a matter of days (sometimes minutes). I knew I had to find a solution to my problem, but I didn't want to be like any nail wrap company on the market that already existed. We wanted to have the largest range with the best quality and ingredients that are free from any nasties.

What makes your wraps unique?
Good question! Unlike many nail decals on the market that are made of regular vinyl, Personail is 100% nail polish - meaning it adheres to the nail exactly like nail polish but without the drying time AKA you can be ready to go in just 10 minutes.  We're design focused, and nail art aficionados; we’re an Australian Company that offers you a huge range (over 200 designs) of 100% nail polish wraps to suit any occasion and style. Think fun, fresh and one-of-a-kind designs that will inject personail-ity into any day of the week or outfit.

How do you come up with your designs and do you have a favourite?
I look at trends and most importantly what I would want to wear myself, there are so many personalities to cater for, so I always ask my customers and followers for feedback. My personal favourite would have to be our Watermelon nail wraps, they are absolutely adorable for the summer months and actually one of our first designs. They are on our permanent line because of how popular and well-loved they are. Followed closely by our classic Marble nail wraps perfect for all seasons and neutral enough to wear everyday!

Any tips for applying/wearing your wraps?
The most important part is prepping before applying our nail wraps, make sure you start with clean dry hands, any oil or cream applied before application of wraps may affect lasting relationships, if you want them to last up to 2 weeks add a swipe of top coat. It's that easy!

Anything you would like to add?
You can now purchase our nail wraps at selected David Jones - I promise you that you will find something there you will absolutely love. Follow us on Instagram @itspersonail to see what we get up to daily!
