Everyone has been all over Kylie Jenner and all of her fabulousness so why not jump on the trend and look fabulous too?
The best part of this DIY… it cost me $3 to make… If you don’t have the polishes you want and need to buy more… it should cost you more than $6! Way better than $50 at a salon right? Let’s get into this! Now these aren’t acrylic, they are glue on nails but they last me a SOLID WEEK before they start popping off and the next time I need to do my nails like this, I didn’t even have to buy new supplies!
You will need: Nail Glue (I use the KISS Brush on nail glue, about $2), Fake Nails (Also KISS, $1 at Dollar General), Polish of your choice (Pictures above is ESSIE I forgot the name but it is a pale gray!), MATTE topcoat (I use the Salon Perfect one), and a nail file (any will do!)
FIRST: Remove all of your old polish and cut your nails short. This will help your nails stay on longer.
SECOND: Fit all of the nails, to make sure which fake nail will fit on which finger. File your whole nail to make a rough surface… this will help the glue adhere better!
THIRD: Brush on the glue (brush on glue is better than the other type because you have more control!) Also, I use two coats of glue.. and the press on the nail firmly for about 5 seconds.
FOURTH: File the fake nails to desired length… as you can see in the picture above…I didn’t go full Kylie because some of us actually have jobs you know..
FIFTH: Paint the nails and seal with a matte topcoat!
Something vital to remember: Its going to take time to get used to these, don’t be paranoid about them popping off but still be careful! You’ll get used to it before you know it, and always carry a spare nail in case of an accident!
