Gina’s Tips & Tricks

Always keep hands, nails and cuticles hydrated. My favorite item would be the KISS Hand & Nail Mask.

Not applying enough glue. You need to make sure there is enough to cover the nail so you don’t have air pockets which can cause nails to pop off too soon.

You want to make sure that the artificial nail covers your natural nail on all sides without going over onto the cuticle area. If the artificial nail is on skin it can cause it to pop off early, so try next size down.

Almond shape is universally flattering. It creates a slimming, feminine effect for all.

Have fun! Nails are meant to show off your personality and remember it’s just nails. There is less commitment with artificial nails so you can swap out super easily based on events you may have or what outfit you may be wearing.
