First attempt at fake nails.

My sister Alyssa came home for the weekend and as usual she wanted her nails done. I had just relieved my order of fake nails in the mail that same day so we decided to try them out. I have never used/painted fake nails before so it was super weird at first. You have so much more control with your designs though, which is awesome. Painting with my left hand is quite a task and it usually looks like a toddler did the job.

I did not take the amount of time i would have liked on these as my sister was heading out to meet friends that night and wanted them on before she left. I was surprised at how well these fit onto her nails though. There is nothing worse than a little awkward gap. Gluing them on was pretty easy, minus the two times the nail flipped around and got stuck onto my finger. There was a lot of screaming involved ripping them off my skin. I didn't know nail glue dried that fast, i had only touched the wet glue for maybe a second!

I have seen quite a few people selling decorated fake nails on Etsy. Are a lot of people interested in that sort of thing?  Would you ever purchase and wear them?

I have been collecting quite a few goodies this past week for a little April giveaway! I am really excited to do my first one, i love giveaways because everyone has a chance to win products that you may not be able to find in your own country. Plus i really love meeting new people =)

The designs on those nails look amazing, I'm in awe of anybody that can create patterns like that since I sruggle just putting a plain colour on mine! I recently had to cut my nails short so I'm considering trying out fake nails :) x

You did a great job! I've never tried doing fake nails myself but I'm thinking I should try them now, they look fun! The glue getting stuck to your hands reminded me of the other night I spilled super glue ALL OVER MY HANDS! It was a terrible experience lol
