I’m a busy gal, but I love to keep my nails looking pretty. Sadly, I don’t always – actually, almost never – have the time to sit and paint my nails let alone do some nail art. So of course I jump at anything that I can just plop onto my nails with little to no effort on my part. So today I’m reviewing these press-on nails by Fing’rs Prints in Girlie Glam. They have a lot more options, like tribal, floral & even camo designs.
They are supposed to stay on for at least a week, and come off easily when it comes time for removal & they are also supposed to not harm your nails in the removal process. Each nail has an adhesive backing, so you don’t have to mess with nail glue getting everywhere. Every set also comes with nail charms, this one came with hearts, and adhesive tabs to use them. I prefer to leave these off because I know they’d get caught on everything.
They’re simple to use, it’s pretty straight forward. Just find the right sizes for each of your nails, apply & press down firmly to ensure a good seal. The same process goes for the charms/adhesive tabs.
The results? Really cute nails in about 15 – 20 minutes. Each nail was easy to apply. They are thick enough that they won’t tear easily & will be a good protective agent to weaker nails, but thin enough that they don’t feel ridiculously bulky on your nails.
However…I ended up taking them all off by the end of the first day of wear. Any time I went to tear something open (using my nails…which they say isn’t good for them anyways but honestly who listens to that) or do much of anything with my hands these buggers would get in the way. Any pressure applied to the tips of the nails made them press uncomfortably into my cuticles. Youch.
They did, though, stay true to one thing. They didn’t seem to damage my nails during removal – though the process of peeling these off made me cringe. You’d think that I’d learn that press-on (or any other false) nails just aren’t worth the money. But alas, I still yearn for pretty nails with no wait time. 😦 Maybe one day I’ll find it?
