First time trying fakies


I was talking and complaining so much about my broken nails (if you've missed it read this) that a friend of mine said: Okay enough. I buy you some fakies. And so she did. She brought me a package of fakies from a dollar store two days ago and I have to say they really look great. I was surprised. I feared the worst but no, they really looked great on the first sight.

Tomorrow morning I'm heading off to Munich for a weekend trip and I though today would be the perfect timing for trying them out. Who doesn't want to have long and nice nails when going on a short holiday?! Provided that it works. 

The operating instructions sounded simple. Take one nail tip, but some nail glue on it and stick in onto you finger. Before doing this I pushed my cuticles back - just in case - and then did what I've been told. Because I never did it before the glue was everywhere on my hands except on the nail where it should have been but after some yelling and complaining it worked quite well. After the glue was dry I trimmed all my nails down to my desired lenghts. I think they look amazing. Curious about when they will fall off but I will keep you up to date in case you wanna know.


 

They are quite thin and comfortable to wear so until now I'm totally happy about them. Hopw they survive my weekend in Munich. 

I wish you all a nice weekend and you'll be hearing from me on Monday again. Meanwhile you could check out my advent calender post of this weem for some awesome swatches I made today.

  1. Hi! I was browsing around randomly when I stumbled upon your site and I loooove it! Hihi. I can't believe these are fake nails. They look so real! And I also have the tendency to apply nail glue on anywhere but my nails. Clumsy, that's me. Hihi. Enjoy your vacation.

    1. Thank you! Now it's day 4 and all the nails are still there where they should (which I didn't expect, because they were sooooo cheap) buuuut the color goes off. I should have applied top coat or anything but didn't think of it when I put them on.

  3. Wow these look beautiful and incredibly natural, I don't think I would have guessed they were false unless you had mentioned it! I love the design! xx

    1. Yes they really were very good and natural. I was also wondering about how long they last. Maybe I should have added a top coat because after one or two days the colors went off
