    It shouldn't hurt @Marigold, just push back gently. It's important to remove invisible cuticle as well - this will actually be on your nail bed. You scrap it off. I recommend the Jamberry cuticle remover, it softens your cuticles and makes it much easier to remove any invisible cuticle!

    Everyone is different, some people get days/weeks wear out of a single application but for others (like me) they start to lift within 24 hours. They don't "chip"as such, as they are basically stickers, so will lift and fray at the edges due to wear and tear. In my experience, mine need upkeep to make them last. Could be just my nails, natural oils in my nails or curves, but I use a nail buffer to tend to the tips as they begin to lift rather than just peel them straight off. Today (I only applied by new ones last night) they had already began to lift around the edges so I gave them another quick go in front of the mini heater and gently buffed/smoothed them down. They are as good as new 😃
    The extra maintenance is worth it though!
    I use a gentle combination buffer like this for fix ups...

    @bpac, I don't think it would make a difference. What colour are you thinking?

    When I bought them I didn't realise it was clear in the gaps. I am thinking a bright pink for all apart from one and the ring finger a bright blue or lavender. Or a bright yellow and green in the ring finger. It's suck a small gap I think it would work. Never done it before so I am trying one of the other ones first

    Yes, it won't last as long.

    I'd recommend putting a coloured wrap underneath or trushine if you have it. Then it should last.

    @Marigold have you tried filing at a 45 degree angle?

    Yes, I've watched the tutorials, I'm following everything they recommend. The only thing I can think of though, is that I apply hand moisturiser a lot throughout the day as a I have very dry skin - I wonder if that's affecting them. Never before or straight after application though so it shouldn't really make a difference...

    No, moisturizer shouldn't effect it if you have a water tight seal. Do you wait 12hrs before emersing in water or putting cream on after first applying them?
