First, my dreams of becoming a hand model saw completion today! Lately, pressed nails with gel adhesive are gaining popularity because of their simplicity and price. In fact, instead of posting earlier today, I was busy putting on my own! Easy and fun. They even make french tipped and glittered!
However, I foresee possible problems. Don’t leave them on more than 1 week, because bacteria and fungus love dark and warm environment to thrive. I hear that nail fungus is no fun.
I can’t imagine that they make a complete seal; pretty complete, but, water migrates and stews under the nail and fosters any growth. Even though it would be tempting to keep a wonderful look in place for a year, do yourself a favor and take them off after a week and give your nails some break-time (before another fun application!)
