Kaitlin has had a brilliant time testing the Project Mc2 H20 Nail Science Kit. Aged 11 she is always playing around with hair, nails and makeup. This set is recommended age is 8+ which I would say is about right however some younger girls will need some adult help I think as it can be quite tricky. The set doesn’t come with everything you need you will need to provide water, nail polish, nail polish remover, cotton buds, and tape. Oh and batteries for the machine 3 AA batteries.
Once you have your nail science kit set up and everything you need to hand the first part of the process is wrapping tape round you fingers. Kaitlin wasn’t very good at this as you can see from below picture. She got there in the end.
The next step is to make the nail polish dip. You do this using the pipets provided. Place water in the pot and add drops of each colour on top of each other to create bulls eye effect like below.
You then dip all you nails in the pot at the same time, this was quite a challenge and Kaitlin had to do fingers then thumb. Its one of those practice makes perfect kind of sets.
Once dipped you remove the tape from around your fingers. Using the cotton buds and nails polish remover clean any excess stray bits of nail polish. Make it look nice and neat. Once done you then place your hand in the dryer to set your nail varnish.
The set comes with some false nails and glue stickers which unfortunately don’t hold very well. You could use any false nails though should you not wish your child to wear nail varnish. The process is the same and you would just apply the false nails and follow the steps in exactly the same way.
You can purchase the Project Mc2 H20 Nail Science Kit from toys shops and also Amazon. Project Mc2 do a great range of sets we recently held a competition for the Project Mc2 Ultimate Spy Bag which looked amazing.
