day eighty, nailene couture safari

here's another set of fake nails from nailene. i really liked the design so i actually glued it to my fingers. it's a fun...zebra with sparkles and that is cool.

i tried to use as little glue as humanly possible but i still had places where the glue was visible and made weird marks. i like that they give you pink glue and the base is tinted pink so it can look more natural...even though it's obviously fake.

i still had issues with the length and couldn't find a single nail to adquately cover my thumb...and that was anoying. it was either huge and impractical or i had to only cover 3/4 of my nail instead of all of it.

i am writing this after i took them off, i put them on yesterday evening and one popped off when i was doing some housework earlier so i popped the rest off (using a wooden cuticle pusher instead of soaking my hands in acetone) and as predicted...i have glue and uneven bits all over my fingers. if there was a way to combat this...i'd probably be more into fake nails. but it BOTHERS me! it ruins my nails until the glue bits go away. no amount of aceton seems to fix it and i don't have a professional buffer tool to get the bits off.

so basically...the nails are nice....but i don't know that i'll be actually sticking any onto my fingers again.

wow those are pretty! i haven't seen those in my town


You can buff out those bits of glue stuck to your nails.... without doing too much damage to your natural nails.

hmm i enver thought about that, thanks!! i do like the look of them...i just tend to find myself acting awkwardly with fake nails. it's like i have claws on teh end of my fingers and it is just disconcerting!
