Just a few days earlier than we left, I placed on this set from imPress known as Wash Away. It has gentle blue strong nails, gentle blue with tiny iridescent glitter nails, and light-weight blue with a turquoise and navy flower and butterfly design nails. These began out medium size and sq., however I reduce and formed them so that they felt extra comfy and sensible for me, as I typically do with the longer faux nails.
Nonetheless trying good on day 6 (with the restricted version “XP Flavored” Coke restricted version).
I had a couple of nails loosen and wish new adhesive tabs through the week I wore the blue set, so fairly customary.
The following set of nails I used had been from the Kiss Gel Fantasy Attract line. The field did not have a reputation on it, however I seemed on-line and these look like known as How Dazzling. They’ve multi-sized iridescent glitter on a translucent ivory base. (The field was a bit worse for put on after being stuffed in a pocket of my suitcase for every week at that time.)
I used adhesive tabs for these, not the glue that got here with them. I clipped and formed them as I had the blue set. On the left, as they got here from the field. On the best, how I wore them.
I wore the glittery nails for the entire second week of the journey. When it was time to alter, I reached for a set I would gotten off the Temu app, the place they had been described as “Press On Nails, Quick Sq. Faux Nails, Beige French False Nails with Glitter Design, Shiny Clear Full Cowl Acrylic Nails for Ladies and Ladies; Coloration: Beige Cat Eye, Fashion: Light”. The image did not seem to match a variety of these phrases, however for $3.48 I used to be prepared to danger it.
These got here with adhesive tabs. They weren’t quick, so I clipped and filed them. They had been a bit sheer, so earlier than I shortened them, a touch of my pure nail suggestions confirmed by means of the faux nails in robust gentle.
Six days later, I hadn’t misplaced a single nail. These adhesive tabs had been robust. I am certain it helped that I did not have my laptop computer with me, so wasn’t banging my nails on a keyboard for a couple of hours a day like I are likely to do at residence.
I would deliberate to alter my nails once more earlier than the following section of our journey, a seven-night transatlantic cruise, however they had been holding up so nicely, I nonetheless had them on the day we boarded, every week after I would utilized them.
I figured I would change to the final set I would packed after I began to lose the beige cat eye ones because the adhesive obtained weakened, however they simply stored hanging in there, so I ended up carrying them for the entire cruise and the multi-day drive residence from New York to Idaho. There was positively a spot on the base of my nails by that point, however given the impartial coloration of the nails it wasn’t too noticeable.
On the journey, I used to be actually making an attempt to give attention to experiences somewhat than shopping for issues, so despite the fact that I noticed polish and pretend nails I haven’t got quick access to at residence, I purchased none of them. I am type of amazed at my self-control. I’ll have a show publish up as soon as I get by means of all of the images; hoping that will not take too lengthy.
