I wanted to give my zebra printed artificial nails from Nailene a try. I absolutely loved the design; very cute! Nailene actually has a good variety of nail designs. Tina Marie Online recently did a post using nails with blue glitter tips.
These are great for when you need a nice nail makeover on short notice or maybe, like me, you don't like going to the salon and having other artificial nails put on. While these glue on nails can be a challenge to apply due to air bubbles, with some practice, application becomes easier.
Here are some application tips, from my personal experience:
1. Instead of applying the glue to the natural nail as directed on the packaging, apply 1-3 drops of glue on the fake nail (more glue for large nails, you shouldn't need more than 3 drops).
2. Next, press the artificial down onto the surface of your natural nail, keeping pressure on only the tip of the nail. Hold for 20-30 seconds.
3. If air bubbles appear, using as much pressure as possible, press down on top of where the air bubble is. Adjusting the pressure toward the edge of the nail, guiding as much of the the air out as possible.
4. Practice makes perfect. Almost. I still always end up with air bubble on my thumbs.
