It's so hot...well...for most everyone. I've fought it and denied it's summer. Not really but wouldn't that be awesome?
I've had these nails since summer of 2010. I wore them once with megatabs and took them off that same day. When I bought these, they were just $3.99. I ordered them from Walgreens. Now I see they have raised prices to $4.49. But they are still only $3.99 on Beautyonlinesupply.com. This set of nails doesn't come with glue, file or orangewood stick. So have those things on hand if you're going to put them on.
I love this design. Does it remind you of summer?
My trouble with these nails are they are medium in length and the design doesn't disguise my short nails' edges. Also, I felt they were too long for my fingers.
I used the glue to glue technique I learned at the Kiss Webinar, and this time, I didn't have even one air bubble!
So what I thought I'd do was use some fruit slices to to enhance the nails and cover my nails' edges, and trim down the tips, so I wouldn't slash anyone to bits.
I use a big toe nail clipper to clip the tips. I know some people just file them down, but I'm not that talented. They'd come out really crocked for me.
Here they are cut down. They are still really long. I could file the nails at the cuticle edge, I've done that before. But with french tip nails, I found that a filed cuticle edge is really apparent.
And here they are with a piece of fruit and some rhinestones.
Pretty wild, eh? Or fun summer look? Or both?
