I've had a ton of questions asked through my Etsy store, and many of them are very similar. I'll post the questions and answers here, so they can easily be found. Plus, it makes it easier for me; I can just refer people here instead of typing out the same answer over and over and over... (I might be a tiny bit lazy)
What size do I need?
Another variant of this question is "what size fits ___ age?"
The answer: Unfortunately, there is no set size for certain ages/age groups. I have a chart that is the last picture in each and every listing. This chart shows you how to measure your nails in millimeters, and then convert those measurements into a specific size (XS, S, M, or L).
If you aren't trying to surprise someone with a gift, use the chart. If you are wanting a surprise, make your best guess. You would make a better guess than me!
Here's a picture of the chart here:
P.S. - I also have an option for custom sizing. If your nail sizes are all over the place like mine, you can just send me your measurements (in millimeters) and I can match them to the right nail sizes for you.
Do you sell glue?
Yes! I sell it separately from the fake nails, so you won't automatically get glue when you purchase a set of nails. You can find the glue listing here.
However, my supply of glue is limited, so I'm not always guarenteed to have some in stock. I do buy it fairly regularly though, so if I'm out, you can always check back every few days.
Are the nails reusable?
If you use nail glue, they are not. The process to remove fake nails partially melts the nail, which makes them look pretty sad and (in my mind) makes them only fit for the garbage can.
If you use nail tabs, they are 100% reusable, as long as you take good care of the nails. The tabs themselves are not reusable, so you will have to buy new tabs for each new wearing.
Do you sell nail tabs?
Unfortunately, I do not at this time. There are some other Etsy stores that sell tabs, as well as your local grocery/beauty supply store.
How long do the nails last?
Fake nails generally last around 1-2 weeks (per use), depending on how you take care of them.
If your like me, and manage to knock your fingers on just about everything imaginable, they'll probably last a week. Maybe less. (I literally knock my nails on everything!)
If you are nicer to your fingers and pay more attention to where they are in relation to other things, they will last for about 2 weeks.
If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask me! You can email me directly - email@example.com - or you can message me through Etsy.
