OK. So what’s the real story?
Well, today I was ready to find out!
What’s in the box? The nails (of course!), a teeny tiny nail file, and a “prep pad” which appears to just be an alcohol wipe.
These are the only directions available. They are on the outside of the box.
Here’s the front and back of the nails. You can see the little pull tab where you’ll peel off plastic, exposing the glue that will adhere them to your nail.
Here’s me trying to size the nails. Wait? What’s that? My nail is showing?? WTF! This isn’t going to work! Wait, maybe there is a bigger one. What? This is the biggest one? You have to be kidding me!
Just for fun, here’s a shot of my plain old stained nail. My nails are NOT long. I barely have any white showing.
Let’s try again. OMG! It’s still not working!
Ok. So I will admit that I have deep cuticle beds but I still think these are ridiculously short. Not a single nail was long enough. My natural nails are not that long and I’m not willing to file them way down just for the sake of this silly fake nail.
So the verdict is…..Fail!
