In the pack you get 24 nails of different sizes, adhesive nail tabs, instructions and a little file. These really are foolproof as each nail comes with a little tab to help with positioning which snaps off once they're in place. No glue to stick your fingers together with either, you simply select the correct size tab (like a little sticky gel cushion), press it onto your clean dry nail, peel off the backing and then press the nail on top. Snap off the tab and gently file if there's any plastic burrs left. So quick and easy, in fact the bit that took the longest was selecting the right sized nails for my fingers - there's a good selection from teeny to fairly wide and they're all numbered on the tab. Five minutes after application they're set and Elegant Touch say they'll last up to a week without chipping, scratching or fading. I've not tested that theory, but they've lasted me through washing up after a Sunday roast and cleaning two very smelly guinea pigs out without budging, which is pretty good going!
These are Elegant Touch's 'short' length, and aren't much longer than my natural nails (in fact, I had to file down my middle finger a little!) but I love how even they look. Personally, I wouldn't see these as an everyday-wear item, but they'd be great for a night out, an important work meeting or even an interview and great to grab in an emergency. Or, if you feel like getting a little creative you could customise them, like I have with the red set I was sent! I'll show you that on Wednesday, I'm really pleased with how well they turned out, and they were really easy too.
