thanks love that really helped me now i no xx tar and by the way i love ur website
This is the first time I've read such a good article "Nails gallery" really very good, I hope there still can continue to read such a good article. I think that Nail polish is applied to decorate and protect our nails from harmful infection. I fit in with your conclusions and will eagerly look forward to your upcoming updates.......
Thanks for the great tips!!!
This really helped me, I'm gonna go but some false nails and I was gonna do them myself. An I was wondering if I could paint them before because I suck at painting my nails so this really helps ! (:
Thank you Justine. Glad it helped, good luck with your nails ;)

Great Post! I love this idea!
I am actually trying it right now, works a treat!
Love it! Thanks for posting this
I can't tell you how creative and helpful this was. It is brilliant. To me, the idea of gluing on nails and then having to paint them and wait for them to dry defeats the whole purpose of convenience. YOU just made my day!
Now YOU made MY DAY
I would have never thought of that thanks so much! So useful cause I can never paint my left hand!☺️
Wow! After I bumbled my first try at painting the nails after applying them my husband said I should paint them first. I thought about it for a whole month and finally googled the question.
Worked like a charm! So clever and easy! Thanks so much for your help.
This sounds just like my husband. I love making things and doing crafts and he always gives me these amazing ideas that I never would have thought about!
Thank you! I'll be using this tip to paint stiletto nails (red underneath, black on top).
Girl you are a genius. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I love creative people, you go girl.
Thanks for sharing! I often wondered how l was going to paint my nails without messing them up. I see this project going into effect this weekend!
I was planning on getting fake nails with a french tip. Then I decided it would be easier to get these no color ones because I can paint them over and over again. I was wondering how I was going to paint them with them on. Thank you for such a creative idea!
Thank you for this post, I will at last be able to do nail art on my right hand properly now so it matches my other hand 😂
I use a chopping board with little balls of blue tack stuck in rows of 10 and paint them all in one go. Works great, been doing this for years. I paint a few boards at a time in different colours and effects then leave them on shelves inside my airing cupboard!
This sounds simple ...hope to give it a try right away
This is really clever. I love all things nails but I have really shaky hands so this has just made it tons easier. Thank you!
I recently read pro makeup artists tense and curl their toes like you're trying to grip the floor, and that steadies shaky hands. I haven't tried it because I haven't had a shaky hand since learning that, but maybe it will help?
This is by far the BEST article I've come across!
Explained in a way that's easy to understand!
Thank you ever so much.. x
This is such a great technique! I'm painting some false nails for the first time and just spent ages picking them up with tweezers, getting them stuck and then ruining them!!
This is going to make the next set WAY easier! Thank you!! 😄
I use wire twist ties and tape to secure the nails. The twist ties allow for bending the nails up on the end. Also, I do several sets at a time and give them plenty of time to dry before applying. I’ve been doing this for years. It’s so simple I wonder why more people haven’t thought of it!
Wow, the final product looks awesome!
This is great! I always get polish all over my hands. I'm going to see if it will work using a gel polish and UV light!
I understand how to paint false nails before application, but when and how am I supposed to file and shape them? Thank you.
Before you paint them. You don’t always have to wait until they’re on to file and buff.
Omg this is gonna help me SO much! I wasn’t trying to find a way to do it but this is great!!!
I thought I was so clever for double sided taping them to makeup brush handles and painting them after filing to fit, but before gluing. When it came time to glue them, none fit anymore! It's like the polish relaxed the plastic and they lost their shape. Judging by the comments it doesn't happen often. Maybe I'll try it again and see if it was just my polish. It's just so much more convenient than waiting for them to dry without royally messing them up. No matter how thin of coats I use.
I also like getting polish drying accelerator at Sally's Beauty. It's like 3 bucks for a giant can that looks like aerosol hairspray and you just spray on each nail as often as you need, I usually spray once every 5 mins till they're dry enough to touch the corners together and not stick to each other anymore or have that tacky feel.
I use wire twist ties (from the produce department) and tape the nails on. They bend, so I can have the nails at just the right angle for polishing. This has worked for me for many years!
