First, I had to trim the nails because despite them being labelled extra short, I still thought they were too long. But they trimmed so nicely, shaped right back up. I think the color is so lovely and flattering. This is my day 7 of wear (except the one thumb nail I put on upside down and had to re-do, oops) and all ten nails are going strong. The clear coat they apply on top has seen better days but doesn't appear to have affected the nails in anyway. I have no lifting or indication of these falling off. I thought the special glue was going to be too good to be true but these have put in more work than any other glue-on nails I have tried. I almost can't wait for them to fall off so I can try the other colors I bought.
