    These were my xmas nails ☺ First attempt, had a few little bubbles on the sides, but not too bad overall. The metallic stripe ones have started peeling, I think I heated them too long... The top layer has peeled up, but the bottom layer is still stuck on.

    Cute!! I love that combo
    The metallic ones only need like 1-2 seconds of heat apparently. I haven't tried any yet, but I've seen lots of discussion on the matter

    The same thing happened to my Gatsbys! (All white with gold lined patterns) I'm just steering clear of anything with the metallic layer. I can get 3 weeks with near perfect nails from the French tips x

    Yeah you're not supposed to use any heat on them to apply then just beat to seal. I'm scared to use them!!

    Er...heat to seal.

    Is that just the metallics? My Mai Tais are 7 days in, I've had a bit of 'fraying' but I just clipped my nails and refiled them. One corner of my thumbnail started to lift but I'm ignoring it!
    I wondered about a top coat.

    It's metallic and lustre, mostly. Are they just a bit ratty at the tips?

    I had a sparkle finish on for the first time a few weeks ago, but I wore the strengthening base underneath and didn't give it long enough to dry. My beautiful sparkles came off within 48 hours. I learnt my lesson and give my under oats at least 12 hours to dry!

    Eta: a lot of us consultants swear by trushine as a top coat, but I would never go down the path of recommending someone buy at $170 kit just to seal wraps at the tip

    Mine get like that all the time. I use my nails to 'pick' at things. Can't help it! But I just do what you do, basically file them back some more. Or change. But my supply is running low, so I'm having to suck it up and make them last!

    I put on some samples the other day. The white ones were fine, but the others crinkled and felt awful and plastic. I'm sure it was my application - that's why I tried the samples instead of wasting a "proper" sheet.

    Going to use my strengthening stuff for a few weeks and get my nails to grow before trying again.

    Flowers and yo-yo's as my 3yo DD called them!
