How Do You Make Temporary Fake Nails?

Written by Tara

1. Gel Nail Extensions: Similar to acrylics, but without any of the toxic methyl methacrylate, gel extensions are a solid alternative. You can pick from a variety of shapes like square, round, or stiletto, and your manicurist will use a small amount of gel to secure the extension to your own nail.

Use double-sided tape if you want a temporary option. Cut a strip of double-sided tape, and stick it over your real nail. Trim the tape down as needed to fit your nail. Next, pick up the matching fake nail, and press it down onto the tape. Be aware that this option is temporary.

Generally Can you use nail polish to put fake nails on? You can use any brand of clear polish, and you can even use polish that has glitter in it. However, avoid using colored polish, because it will be visible if some does come out from beneath the nail when you apply it. Alternately, you can apply the polish to your natural nail first.
