No, it’s not a flashback to the ’80’s…believe it or not, there are some good artificial nails out on the market. I will admit, I was hesitant at first, but after reading some rave reviews about Revlon’s Runway Collection (click here to visit Scrangie’s reviews!), I thought I’d give their Naturally Chic line a try. I’m a sucker for a good French manicure, and there are numerous lengths, colors, and styles available through Revlon’s line, which run anywhere from $5-7.99 for the set. Each box includes anywhere from 24-36 nails, depending on the style, which have a variety of sizes and half sizes to fit your nails, a buffer file, a cuticle stick and nail glue.
After you use nail polish remover to ensure there is no residue on your nail, buff and size your artificial nail to your nail bed. I was pleased with the flexibility and the various sizes available. In the past (and I mean way past!), I don’t think there was this much variety for your typical “press on nail”. Add a drop or two of glue to your nail, press for 20 seconds to ensure no air bubbles, and you’re good to go!
I couldn’t believe how nice these looked! If I hadn’t known any better, I would have thought I had gone to the salon a manicure and acrylics, spending close to $40-50!! Even more impressive, these nails wear like iron. I am pretty hard on my hands/nails, and I’ve had these on a week without budging!
