  • Yeah, you can get them at walmart too.
    I'd rather get them done profesionally because I always tend to glue my fingers together, or to something. I probably shouldn't be allowed near nail glue.

  • yup walmart's also has the extra glue etc...i tried it once but i couldn't get them to file down correctly so i had bumpy i just go get them done at the salon turns out cheaper and easier for me in the long run

  • You mean the actual french tips? Or the press on nails?

  • Cool, now can you give me the steps to actually do it? lol.
    I've watched it be done before, but I couldn't tell you in what order it was in.

    do you have like a sallys near you? it has all of the supplies that people that work in salons get their supplies, in the nail section they have acrylic nail kits and it has directions with everything you need, or else you can look it up on the internet for intstructions also, Me and my mom had alot of fun doing them, it was a fun way to spend time with my mom

  • ooooh, girl! Where have you been? I did my own acrylics with the powder and liquid back when I was 20. That was 19 years ago!
