I have always dreamed of having long pretty airbrushed nails. I saw this Crystal Clear Nail Kit at Krogers when I was doing my grocery shopping. I didn't know what length was best for me since I type a lot on the computer. I thought maybe the medium length would be okay. I was hoping that it would be easy to adjust them with a nail file if they were too long after I applied them.
First of all you will get a set of 24 Crystal nails which come in 12 sizes. You need to test each of your fingers for the proper fit of a nail. Once you find 10 nails, set them aside and then put the extra nails away. You might need them should you have a nail come off. Some of the nails are not a perfect fit and you will need to file down the edges to fit your natural nail shape. Make sure your nail has a clean surface. Remove all traces of nail polish. Apply a small amount of glue on the bottom of the Crystal Nail and then apply a little more glue to your natural nail. Press the Crystal Nail on to your natural nail and hold for a minute or two. Then move on to the next finger and repeat.
I found that applying these artificial nails was tricky at first. I also feel that they are messy to apply. I ended up with glue on my fingers and had to struggle to remove that glue. One tip I will give you is if that happens to you, buy some 100% Pure Acetone Remover to take off the excess glue.
These nails can be left on for up to 7 days. Do not leave them on longer than the recommended time. They are pretty and an inexpensive way to dress up your nails for a ~special occasion~ !
