    I’m just really too clumsy to do my nails, but I’m always looking for ideas to share with my nail artist girl, so will absolutely show this to her…

  • How cool! I have tried out fake nails a few times, but they feel really gross on my fingers and all kinds of dirt gets stuck underneath them, so I definitely prefer nail appliques since they are flush with the nail. Thanks for the tutorial 😀
