False Nails Tutorial/Review From Born Pretty Store!

Hi everyone!


Today I have a tutorial/review on how to shape and apply your own false nails! First of, the nails I am using are from Born Pretty Store. They are the full ones so they cover your whole nail and aren't just meant for your tips!


So there are sizes from 0-9. The bigger the number, the smaller the nail. So nine is the smallest and is more appropriate for the pinkie, and 0 is the largest for the thumb. There are 500 nail altogether so they are going to last you a long time and you have so many to chose from.


So all the nails are naturally long so what you will need to do is cut and shape them to the perfect shape you want. If you prefer them long then you can keep them like that, but if you want them shorter then you can clip them down and foil them square or oval.


So the first thing you want to do is make sure your nails are clipped down and all nail polish is removed. Then you want to match up all your nails the the false ones that fit right.


Then you are going to need to glue them on, pressing down with pressure for a couple minutes. Once they are all glued down you should let them set for five minutes or so. Then you want to start shaping, so if you want them shorter you should clip them down to the length you want, and foil them so the edges are not as sharp.


Once they are the length and shape you like, you should start to pick out the nail colour you would like them. I went for a classic red and this is 'St James' by Nails Inc. I wanted mine a medium length and squared of. Once I applied a couple coats of my nail polish, I waited for them to dry.


To add a special touch, you could add some nail art or diamante to jazz them up. I personally added some of these diamante bows on the middle finger. They are very large and make your nails super cute! You could opt for a smaller size for a more natural look if you liked.

These are the perfect way for long nails and these ones are strong and great quality. It a much cheaper option than getting them done at the salon. Plus you can re-do them because of how many there are so you get more for your money.
