Project MC2 H20 Nail Science Review

We’re quite loyal fans to the Project MC2 brand in our home, and have enjoyed reviewing plenty of dolls and sets such as the Ultimate Spy Bag and Devon’s Puffy Paint Doll. Abby was keen to try out the Project MC2 H20 Nail Science kit recently. She has been bugging me for false nails through the holidays so I thought this would be a great compromise.

What’s Inside the Project MC2 H20 Nail Science Box?

Included in the Project MC2 H20 Nail Science box is the base unit which acts as a nail air dryer, and also provides the vibrations to move the nail polish around in water. You receive four pipettes, three stands for nail polish, a stirrer, pot, three sets of white nails and nail stickers to attach to nails.

How To Use

The assembly of the base is easy, just by slotting the stands into the base and adding 3xAA batteries (not included). Once the unit is assembled, select two or three of your own nail polishes and pop them in the stands provided without their lids.

Turn the unit on, and fill the pot three quarters full with water. The light will change colour telling you the unit is on correctly. The instructions suggest adding the nails to your hands before applying the polish in the water. We found however it was a little easier to almost do the process backwards by adding the nails to the mixture and letting dry before attaching to our nails.

The process of adding the nail polish needs to be done quickly before it dries, as then it can become a little sticky and messy. You will need nail polish remover to hand, and it’s suggested that fingers are taped if you’re applying the plain nails to your hands before dipping into the water.

Taking  pipette, add one drop of nail varnish to the water, quickly add a different colour and use the stirrer to play with the design in the water. Then it’s time to place your nails into the water to give them a funky design.

What Abby Thought

This is a fun way to create different coloured nails. It is a bit messy and it’s better to tape your fingers before dipping the nails into the water. You have to be really quick otherwise it goes a bit clumpy and sticky. The patterns in the water are cool and the nails are a lovely colour.

I liked the length of the nails as well and they looked good on me. The air dryer is great, I’ve always wanted one of those.

What I Thought

As a parent, I actually thought this set was quite fun. I would suggest a couple of tweaks to the instructions to save some mess and make the process a little easier. Once you have used the pipettes they almost have to go in the bin as it’s not very easy to clean dried nail polish from the inside of a pipette. I would suggest not using the pipettes and letting a drop of nail polish fall from the brush of the polish.

I would also suggest either using a lot of tape as Abby mentioned above, or attaching the nails to an orange stick or something similar with some tape and dipping into the water that way. This could then become a very mess free activity.

To dry the nails you can use the nail drying area at the front of the unit, press down with your hand to activate the air. This will come in handy for drying normal nails for Abby as well in the future.
