Nail Necessities

Quick Update: If you have been on the website within the last hour, you may have seen the format. I was testing out a new template, and needless to say, it did not turn out too well! I am quite content with the current one for now. :)

Anyways, I was experimenting with nails. If you have seen some previous posts with my nail polish designs, then you know that I am slightly addicted. The only problem I was running into was the space I had to create my design. My nails do not grow very quickly, but I wanted to test out the look of long nails. I decided to test out fake nails.

I decided on a pair that I knew wouldn't last longer than a week. They were a decent length and not too obnoxious. After gluing them on, I ran into a slight dilemma... I had no idea how to function with them. You basically have to re-learn how to do everyday activities including my nightmare: taking out contacts. I was shocked that after a week later, the nails were still holding strong. I was slightly bored of the design, so I painted over it.

This was the design that I came up with! This was a week later, so you can see that my nails grew out a bit. Overall, I was pretty happy with them. They finally came off about a week later and my nails were not damaged from the glue.
The only activity that took some time for me to do was to get my contacts out. I cannot tell you how many times in those two weeks that I scratched my eyes out. I finally figured out how to slide them and then get them to crinkle up.. It was tough.
I guess if the only downside to the nails was the contact issue, then they went fairly well. I would try them again if I had the chance! Tell me in the comments if you have ever tried fake nails, and if so, how did you like them? Thanks for reading!
