How long do fake nails usually last? How to maintain them?

I usually have decent long nails but lately they haven't been growing very fast, and my graduation is in a few days. Id like to have nice nails, so i decided to get fake nails. (easy, and cheep)| Unfortunately i don't have enough time to book an appointment to get my nails done so i have to get press-on fake nails. Any suggestions on brands, etc.

thanks so much :)How long do fake nails usually last? How to maintain them?

i dont really know any name brands but usually fake nails stay on for like 2 or 3 weeks if u maintain them.and to do that u cant bang them on tables bite them or any thing like that.
I've seen commercials for Kiss press-on French nails.

    like not cracked and dry and brittle? im only 13 but still is there like food, or medicine or special nail polish? toenails and fingernails.Does anything make your nails grow stronger and prettier?
    Your DIET!

    It's all about protein %26amp; calcium when it comes to hair, nails and skin.

    Nailpolish only does it on the OUTSIDE - but to me, what's important is that my nails are strong on their own, with or without whatever polish.

    So check the diet - perhaps you'll need to increase your intake of calcium %26amp; protein.Does anything make your nails grow stronger and prettier?
    you can get a special advance hardening nail polish i think Loreal has one or maybe maybeline
    Milk works best!!!Drink lots of milk. GOOD LUCK!!

    My brother has a habit of cutting the skin and nails from around his fingers and eating it. What is wrong?

    He does this almost everyday?

    How can i stop him.My brother has a habit of cutting the skin and nails from around his fingers and eating it. What is wrong?
    um.....try putting tape over his fingers or maybe soak his fingers in vinegar so when he tries to eat it, it will taste weird and maybe he'll stop?

    hope this helpsMy brother has a habit of cutting the skin and nails from around his fingers and eating it. What is wrong?
    How old is he? It could be a number of things. It sounds like a nervous/anxiety disorder, maybe? I'm not a professional by any means, but maybe you should take him to a doctor and find out what is going on. I used to be a regular nail biter, it was hard to stop but I did.
    There is a clear nail polish out on the market where when he puts his finger in his mouth they taste bidder. My mom got some when my little sister got into the habit of chewing on her nails.

    Sorry i don't know the name of the product, or where she got it. try googling it

    I have a really bad habit of biting my finger nails, how can I stop this?

    I have been biting my nails for as long as I can remember and I do it without even realizing I'm chewing on them, I'm getting married in August and don't wanna have uhgo nails, especially for our wedding rings picture. I need to know how I can stop doing this? Fake nails do not work, I just pick at them until they come off.I have a really bad habit of biting my finger nails, how can I stop this?
    Try going for weekly manicures, your nails will be too pretty to bite/chew/pick at.

    Keep your hands busy while watching tv, l or better yet, put a thick heavy cream on your hands and cover with cotton gloves, your hands will be silky smooth.

    If you like take up knitting or stiching, something that will keep your hands busy.

    Be careful with fake nails, if any moisture gets between your natural nail and the artificial nail, you are at risk of a nail infection/fungus. Natural nails are the best.I have a really bad habit of biting my finger nails, how can I stop this?
    I do the same..i know it's hard to break the habit. First paint your nails. This still may not stop you so if you are doing something like watching a movie that doesnt involve moving try sitting on your hand or keeping them folded in your lap and everytime you think of reaching them up to bite you should remember by the polish to put them back down.
    Identify exactly when it is you start chewing your nails. Is it when you are at home, work, or school? Is it when you are sitting and hanging out or watching TV? Understand what might trigger mild anxiety for you and find a substitute for this behavior (such as bringing a glass of water to your mouth instead when you feel the urge to chew, or carrot sticks, whatever).

    Wouldn't hurt to go for a mini manicure at a salon to encourage you to take better care of your hands.

    I bet if you let your nails grow a little naturally and kept them neatly filed, you would have nice looking hands.
    cut your nails regularly or apply chilly paste on your nails
    keep your hands busy with kniting or paint your nails.
    Try keeping nail polish on your nails. You might pick at them at first, but hopefully that will deter you for awhile. There is also a nail polish type stuff that you can paint on your nails that tastes bad, to prevent you from biting you nails. You can try that.
    I did that when I was little and my mom got this really gross tasting yet pretty nail polish stuff. It completely cut the habit. Another way to stop it is to cut your nails really short so you can't get at them to bite.

    Congrats on the wedding!
    put nail polish remover on your nails. It tastes really gross and you'll relize your biting your nails.

    Here's an old trick;

    Mix a drop of tobasco sauce in clear nail strengthening polish and wear that. It burns your mouth ';gently'; and will prevent the biting, plus strengthen them from all the biting you've done.

    Wear it for 21 days, that's how long it takes to break a habit.
    Dip your finget tips in vinegar or something gross.. that way every time u try to bite them you will taste that gross taste
    We'll. . . . I guess you could go to a doctor or something they could give you medicine or i really think you should do this becasue this is what i do: i put all kinds of germ-x or stuff that burns your tounge and makes them feel bad so you won't put them in your mouth i prmise that will work! i hope this helps you or you find your solution!
    You can go buy special nail polish that tastes like crap or you can just do it the country way.

    You should probably keep your nails painted red so it doesn't show as bad but anyway. You take cayan pepper or paprika (which ever spice just really burns your mouth) and you mix it with vodka and hot sauce or (you can use a little vegetable oil for the vodka if you have to) until it gets a little thicker than nail polish. The thicker you can keep it the better. Use an old nail polish brush that you have washed or even a q-tip and brush the mixture on your fingers. Let it dry really good. Vodka evaporates quicker so it dries faster, thats why more people choose it. It will dry and get hard (think about dishes you leave in the sink too long) and when you bite your nails you will get that burning from the spice. Its not toxic like nail polish and burning lasts for a while so you get the lesson quicker.
    keep your nails painted.

    put on at least like 5 coats of nail polish.

    with nail polish it'd be kidna gross 2 still bite them.

    and wen you take it off or as soon as u see it chipping paint them again

    Where do i get materials to do my own acrylic nails?

    any cheap website suggestions? and whats everything i need? the liquid stuff and the powder stuff.. anything else?Where do i get materials to do my own acrylic nails?
    You should be able to get the kits at a drugstore. I think Sally Hansen has a kit out - as do a lot of other brand name products.Where do i get materials to do my own acrylic nails?
    H.E.B or Walmart
    you can buy it at any beauty supply store,such as sally', or otherbeauty supply stores
    You can go to any store that carries nail care supplies or polish. They have kits that include everything from the filers and acrlyic tips to the acrlyic powder and glue. They also include the brushes to apply the mixture evenly. If you want a set for cheap, then you can go to walmart.
    go to its a beautysupply house. They have everything you need to do acrlic nails and more. Look for a store near you as well. I go there for all my supplies, and you don't have to be licenced to purchase most of their products.
    I would just go to Sally Beauty Store and ask for help.

    How long do soft nails last on cats?

    I really dislike them as much as my cats did. It is much easier to trim their nails monthly and then everyone is happy.How long do soft nails last on cats?
    I've heard you're supposed to change them about once a month, but some people never take them all off and just replace them when one comes off. I doubt that's good...

    Anyway, most of the people I've talked to say that their cats just rip them off or they come off when the cat is active. If you have a more layabout cat, maybe they'll stay on... but then I guess you wouldn't need them either. Good luck.How long do soft nails last on cats?
    I have heard great reviews on them, but my Aunts cat seemed to rip them off within about 3 days, she even had the vet out them on to make sure they were on right and they never stayed..
    sometimes cats will chew on them but most of the time they last awhile. i knew of a cat though when the soft claw came off, so did most of her claw! so just be careful w/ how much glue you use
    depends on the cat, but mine lasted about 3 weeks before I had to swap them out. They work great!

    My hands are so dry and I hate having hang nails?

    Please help me.....My hands get so dry and I hate the feeling of it. My fingers are constantly in my mouth because of it. I have really bad hang nails and I never have long fingernails. How can I stop biting my nails and getting hangnails? Also why are my hands always so dry? What do I do to stop my hands from getting so dry?My hands are so dry and I hate having hang nails?
    cuticle oil and lotion. :)My hands are so dry and I hate having hang nails?
    get you a good lotion for the dryness. Eucerin is a good lotion for it. Also, to stop bitting the nails....I just had to do the same thing. What worked for me was keeping a nail file in my purse so if one chips I can just file it down instead of bitting it off. Also I kept that clear polish on them that makes nails stronger. It takes a lot of will power but youcan do it!
    cuticle oil will take care of the hang nails. it's winter, my hands are a mess too. biting your nails is another issue.
    use any hand lotion that you want, but be sure to use it plenty of times a day. use a moisturising hand wash to wash your hands--- avoid using soap. they tend to dry out your skin.

    also, for your nails, try dipping your hands in olive oil. that should give you a head start. slowly, move on to using cuticle oil.

    also, keep a watch on your diet. make sure you get plenty od calcium. it'll keep your nails strong and healthy!

    hope this helps!!!
    First, exfoliate your hands once a day with a hand-formulated exfoliator. They have one at Bath and Body Works called 60 second Spa..or something like that. Or, you can just mix sugar with baby oil and massage into your hands for 60 seconds. Once your hands are dry, use a good moisturizing lotion (i like Vaseline Healthy Hands %26amp; Nails hand lotion). Your hands will feel great because they are receiving moisture from the baby oil and the lotion.

    This really works. Good luck!
    Clip your hangs nails, try not to bite them. I'm going through the same thing. Before bed put a good lotion on them like cetaphil, or Vaseline ( my favorite ). This may sound weird, but put socks over them. It will lock in moisture, and avoid getting lotion everywhere.

    Good Luck.
    You have to use thick lotion, like cocoa butter or something. And this is wierd, but try to only put it on your knuckles and rub from there - I have the same problem and cocoa butter works great ,but if I put it all over my hands my palms look shiny and greasy - yuck! The cocoa butter will help if you rub it around your cuticles too. If it gets REALLY bad, then put petroleum jelly all over your hands and cover them with socks and sleep like that. It's kind of lame but I do it sometimes =) You take off the sock in the morning and your hands are so soft!
