To apply these, you have to measure them against your nail, choose the five that fit you the best and peel off the tape on the back. You then apply them to your nails, with the thumb applied last. At first this was really easy, but I struggled to get the sticky back off after I'd finished one hand! Overall it was a very easy and also a very quick process. It took me about five minutes to apply these! Some of them are a little wonky as it was first time using these (my first time using fake nails, in fact) and some of them that I applied using my left hand are more than a little crooked, but overall they're quite neat.
If you read this blog frequently then you'd know that this is the neatest my nails have ever been! I really like the overall effect of these, they make having short nails much more bearable. The colour is nice, it's a reddish brown that seems to change depending on the light. These don't really feel like false nails either. They are very comfortable to wear and the shortness of them means that they are very easy to work with. They feel very secure.
These lasted for four days until one of them popped off (I was trying to get one of my tablets out of the packet when this happened) and I'm really pleased with how long they lasted. Some of them are tougher than others (the ones on my left hand for example I had to remove because none of them were coming off) but overall they all lasted well.
I think these nails are excellent if for example you have to have short nails for work or because you play an instrument and you want to have longer nails for a week! They are very comfortable to wear and the shortness of them means that they don't feel awkward. I'd definitely wear these again.
These nails cost £8.99 from Boots.
