I bite my nails. There…I admitted it. But, would you know I bite them? Nope! And I’ll tell you why. I found the perfect solution. In the nail care section of your local drug store, there is a display of glue on nails. Now don’t be scared. These aren’t the Lee press on nails of years past. These are perfect looking French tipped nails that you can do yourself in about 20 minutes. I like the real short versions of Broadway and Kiss brands. For $7 or so, you will have two full sets of nails that you glue on yourself. For me, these look perfect for about 2 weeks – the same amount of time most people keep their acrylic tips on for before going to the salon for a fill-in.
Using these nails allows me to not have nasty, bitten to stubs nails and while, I still tend to bite the tips, because they are so tough, you can’t tell. You also save a ton of money and time. In New York, tips or wraps cost around $40 to start, then you have to pay $20 every two weeks to get your fill-in. The whole process also takes about an hour and that’s not including travel or wait time. So overall, you save at least 40 minutes and $16 every two weeks. Now that’s a great deal!
These are also great to have in your house for a last minute date, job interview or whatever else you want pretty nails for. They also have versions for your toes but I think that’s just creepy.
PS …. Please don’t lecture about how gross biting nails is. I understand this and would love to stop, but it hasn’t happened yet and fortunately, I also haven’t died from all the germs that are under nail tips. 🙂
