How to put on fake nails

My professional manicure done at home in under 5 minutes :D

As a homemaker and a craftier, I always end up with ugly nails. I can never grow them long enough without chipping.

I can never grow them long as they’ll be in the way of my work. So I have to live with ugly nails… @_@

Fake nails

I was at a pharmacy today and saw some amazing set of fake nails but they are so darn expensive. I almost wanted to get them but decided against it as they are just too expensive for a beginner like me. Since I have never put on fake nails before I am not going to spend a fortune on them only to end up ruining them!

Then I went to Daiso and saw even prettier looking fake nails and what’s more, they are only RM5! Without hesitation I grabbed a box!

Artificial nails from Daiso

Nail tips seal

Initially I got the nail glue but I am afraid that I’ll ruin what is left of my already damaged nail further so I opt for the nail tips seal instead. Though it wont be as long lasting as the nail glue, it will make them stay..

I started by finding the right size nails by checking them against my own nails. They should cover the nails without hanging over the sides.

Right size artificial nails for me :D

I attached the adhesive seal on the back side of the artificial nail.

I removed the seal and adhere the fake nail onto my own nail. Nice? I love it! But I find it not strong enough so ..

I placed the adhesive on my nails too! So now I have adhesive on BOTH the artificial nail and MY own nail! @_@

Remove the seal..

Placed the artificial nail onto my own nail

And PRESS!

I got all five fingers done in under 5 minutes! That is a record time I tell you! I’ll never paint my own nails again!

I did light housework with those nails and they stayed! Good nails! haha… but of course, I can’t be mopping the floor with those! >_<

P/S: The fake nails can be reused if we use the adhesive seal but not when nail glue is used. If you used nail glue, you’ll need to get the glue remover to dissolve the nail glue to remove it.

    Choi Yen,

    These nails are not used on daily basis. I only put them on when I have an event to attend, say.. dinner! :)

    Nice manicure, initially thought it was done in the salon. But I prefer real one, because the fake one tends to fail on me :( I guess I need more practice.

    One thing Bananaz got to take his hats off for all the ladies. Able to work well with long finger nails. Bananaz would feel some discomfort when the nails grow longer got a feeling they are kacau-ing the daily routines..haha.

    Wow! Sounds so easy. I've always wanted to put on fake nails but the thought of putting on the glue scares me. So now I have to go to Daiso and get those stickers so the nails i bought aren't wasted, haha! :) Thanks for the great tip!

    I got one set, but no need to use nail tip seal… the nail art, behind is adhesive… Been using for many times and it's still sticky! I love it!~ But only can use it, if only I didn't bring both my kids to any function……

    Hi Mary,

    You can get the nail tips seal from Daiso itself or any mani/padi shops around. You may even get it from the pharmacy. Hope it helps :)
