I usually go to the saloon to get gel nails that will begin to chip the next week. I am now on day 7 with these nails and they are still going strong. I was nervous to see if they would all stay on as I live on a farm, but they are still holding up wonderfully! They were a little long for my taste but they were WAY easy to file down to my desired shape and length. Can’t wait to try my next set.
