need tips advise or any words of wisdom that can help me lol!

So I got these great fake nails the other day. They are so cute. The problem I have is that when I put on fake nails they never stay on for more than a week but usually not even that long. So if any of you mommas can give me any tips on how to prolong the life of my fake nails that would be so awesome. I just want to have cute nails longer than a week this time.thanks so much.

  • Are They acrylic like u got them at a salon? Or the ones from like a beauty supply store or Walmart or whatever? I would get a rougher type file and file the tops of your nails. If your natural nail is too smooth they won't. Stick on as well. Also wear gloves When doing dishes or household chores. Hope this helps a little

  • Avoid using your hands. I use my hands too much, and I always used to pop them off. I don't get them anymore for that reason.

  • Get gel nails. They cost just a few dollars more but not only do they last a lot longer, you can wear them without polish and they look totally natural.
