Using artificial nails is one of the easiest ways to track nail trends. I believe that some public figures use this especially in photo shoots. There are actually a number of ways to apply artificial nails, either with nail glue, nail glue or with gel polish using the UV / LED lamp. Since I don’t have the lamp yet, I prefer to use nail glue because I don’t think the glue can lengthen the attachments.
I had the idea last year to use artificial nails from a friend and because I have short fingers and my natural nails are too thin to be long. You can take advantage of the full service in any salon or nail spa, but this will cost you more than five hundred. You will also most likely have to wait two hours or more for the procedures to complete. So if you don’t have that much time, I recommend you buy artificial nails yourself.
The application is very practical and takes less than ten minutes even for beginners. In addition, the usual price for the artificial nails that you can also find online is less than three hundred pesos (Php300). That means you can save more than half the cost by going to nail baths. I got my about two hundred pesos (Php200). This is a set of twenty four artificial nails, nail glue, cuticle stick and nail glue. Most artificial nails that you can find online are already pre-made, so all you have to do is choose the design or nail art. There are also sizes and shapes to choose from, although you can easily reshape and resize the nails at any time.
Here are the steps to apply artificial nails in your own home:
- Wash your hands and make sure everything around the nail bed is completely dry.
- Remove nail polish.
- Polish the surface of your natural nails to roughen and clean them.
- Gently push the cuticle back with the cuticle stick.
- Arrange the nails in the way that is suitable for which fingers.
- Apply one point of nail glue on the back of the artificial nail and one on your natural nail.
- Place the artificial nail directly over the cuticle. Keep it straight.
- Press on the nail bed. Hold down the pressure for 15 to 20 seconds.
Artificial nails can only be reused if you do nothing wrong. Therefore, apply them carefully.
