I had a bit of spare time to myself and I thought I’d give these lovely ladies a go. These press on nails are gorgeous. I haven’t done any thing like this by myself before – I was nervous. The perfectionist in me wanted to get it spot on. I had gel nails applied for my wedding last year but I didn’t like the way it made my nails feel and as a result I became completely immobile. I had those nails removed almost immediately – complete waste of money.
The box gives you very good instructions for applying these nails. I was surprised at how easy it was to apply. It was so easy – even for me. The package comes with different nail sizes so that you can get the closest fit to your natural nails. I quickly figure out that I shouldn’t have put the nail to close to my cuticle ( I should have removed my cuticles as well). When it gets stuck, it can be really painful. Luckily, these nails were easy to remove and reapply again.
I love the multiple designs they have available. It was really hard to choose. I did however end up choosing this nude set with gold and silver glitter. Additionally, I love the idea that I didn’t have to use glue! I hate the idea of having to deal with glue anyway. I know that glue can be very damaging towards your natural nail. I have yet to see how long these nails last. It should last about one week but I will have to wait and see.
I first sized the falsies, arranged them in order, then peeled away the backing and pressed it on my nails. I started with my little fingers first and then went ahead and moved towards my thumbs. This is apparently the best way to do and I found it simple and easy enough. These press on nails were reasonably priced – I can’t remember the price – and I am so excited to get another set and just try all the lengths and designs. I also feel that I have a lot to learn in terms of proper hand and nail care treatments.
Have you tried press on nails before? What did you think?
Do you have any hand and nail care advice for me?
