Claire's False Nails

I am reallllly not a fan of false nails…or at least I wasn’t. Claire’s had a ton of choices, some much crazier than the two sets I got, and by the way I went into an Icing store right after this, and they actually had the same nails and even more choices. The first set I tried was the one with the black tips.

fake 220 (!!!) nails in 8 sizes came in these sets, so there were tons of choices! I did have an issue with totally not realizing at first that this particular style had both left and right nails, though.

I was kinda terrified of the glue damaging my nails! Probably for no reason, but still :) so I bought and used some Nailene glue instead, figuring that Claire’s glue would be of lesser quality maybe? I dunno. I didn’t have much trouble with bubbling at all. Also, they were pretty long…I didn’t have issues covering any of my natural nails, and actually I used my filing nail grinder thingy after a day to make them much shorter. And the design is ADORABLE! Kinda tacky I suppose, but really really cute. Of course, after a couple of days I got sick of the design so I grinded (ground?) off the pearls and changed my polish as normal every day. They stayed on for about a week, which I totally didn’t expect – I figured they’d start popping off the same day, really. And when it was time to take them off, they melted right away in acetone. I totally loved these!!! I’m going to give my natural nails a little rest, then try the other set.

  • […] if the reason I have problems with fakes is user error or mishapen nails…though actually the Claire’s nails I tried were absolutely perfect, so I guess good fakes for me do exist. Anyway, I got terrible […]

  • […] Claire's Nails #2 A while ago, I broke another nail, really far down, and as I was dealing with a few other recent breaks, I stupidly cut ALL my nails down as far as they could possibly go. Took about 2 minutes for me to regret it. So, I bought some Kiss false nails to get me through that difficult time and I HATE them. They’re short and round and thick and not shaped very well for my nails. So, instead I applied the second set of the Claire’s nails that I got around Christmas. […]
