Here's my second post with my new nails - see here for an explanation of what I use.
I decided to paint my nails with Illamsqua Faux Pas (£13.50).
This is a one coat, rubber finish, proper purple purple. I love this polish - it might be my favourite! The formula is great, smooth and easy to apply.
An update on my false nails - a couple came off today so I removed the rest and cleaned them, ready to be worn again when I feel like it. I'm curious about everyone else's experiences with false nails, and glue in particular. Are they really as terrible for your nails as I've heard?
