I bought this color, Sugar Floss, to try static nails. I have been getting gel on my nails for several years, but I have to take breaks because they still ruin my nails. I purchased static nails for “emergency” use. Well, I love them and they stay on really well. I like very short nails so I cut them down (even the short) and file them to a desired length. It is really important not to get glue on the static nail as it does not come off and dulls the nail color. I brush the glue on my nail and the static nail, then carefully put the nail on by holding just the sides of the nail (make sure to pick out the right sizes before you glue) Sometimes, I need to re-apply a little glue. I push the cuticle back with the static nail and make sure not to glue my skin or glue the nail on my cuticle. It takes me about 30 mins to make sure they are perfect. Love this product and bought fall colors. Tip: if you want short nails go with the short round, even for square they look better and are not fanned out.
