I have been tempted lately by the ultimate quick manicure fix: glue-on false nails. My fingernails naturally grow weak, super-flexible and prone to splitting, fraying and flaking. I use a nail treatment regularly, but still cannot grow my nails past (most of the time even to) my fingertips. I love the look of long, vampy, pointed nails, but I don't think I can achieve it without some artificial means. Now, the downsides; I know from experiences by myself and friends that fake nails degrade your natural fingernails, sometimes to the point that they turn strange colors or develop bumps or warped surfaces. Also, they are high-maintenance, often popping off at inconvenient times and clinging stubbornly when you want to remove them.
Anyway, I guess what I'm really saying is that it depends on your priorities when it comes to manicures.
What do you think? Feel free to discuss in the comments.
Have a wonder-filled day!
