First Time Using Fake Nails

So I recently decided to try using fake nails. I actually really like my natural nails a lot. But I wanted to try having super duper long nails that are impossible for me to grow out. They are pretty, and I am typing with them right now. My nails are now almost 1 inch long!! But I must admit, it’s really difficult typing with them on!! lol, the nails are too long and I feel like they should rip off at any moment, especially the ones on my pinkies!

So these are the supplies that I bought from Sally’s Beauty Supply store. I got a soft nail buff for natural and fake nails, nail glue, and a pack of fake nail tips. All of this totalled to be around $5.00. Not too bad.

The sizes that came in the pack of fake nails were ok for me. I used most of the smaller and middle size nails. I ended up reshaping the square shaped tips into rounded points however. But here is what they looked like out of the box.

What I did was I just cut off all of my naturally long nails T-T and then glued on the fake nails after carefully selecting which ones fit each nail. Then I filed each nail to the shape that I desired. Finally I added color and a little magic and ta-da! Done. This is a quick summary however, of several hours of nail work.. lol and it still doesn’t look that great since I kind of got lazy… actually I didn’t wanna try too hard because I don’t think the nails will last me very long since they are ridiculously long. Haha but I like how it looks, too bad its not practical.

This is what my nails ended up looking like. Totally would have gone for something more crazy and extreme if I had any more patience that day. But I was a bit busy and didn’t have the time.

There’s a lot of things that I will know not to do the next time I want to use fake nails. For one, I wouldn’t use the one thats for tips.. it looks retarded on me and I can’t reuse the nails now either.
