So easy to apply! No need to go to the salon. It took all of 10 minutes. The tube of glue that comes with the kit isn't the best for application but it works. I used rubbing alcohol on each nail, applied a thin layer of glue to my own nail and to the back of the fake nail, pressed for 30 seconds and done. Very easy application, they look so real and I'm able to work with these very easily. Waiting to see how they hold up.
