When I want that perfect manicure look, false nails do not fail. As I’m perfecting my manicure skills, false nails give me the look like I spent a lot of money at the salon.
These are Revlon’s Runway Collection. This style is ‘Starlet’ and they are medium length.
It might be a bit hard to see, but this is a ‘special’ french manicure. While the nail is light pink, the tip is white with silver and opaque white designs. Even in person, there’s just a hint that there is something different about this French.
Do excuse the thumb. It seemed to be having a bad nail day.
The set comes with 28 nail tips in 12 different sizes. I have the tiniest pinky nail so I was very happy to find that there was a size for me. There was a bottle of pink gel glue, a tiny emery board and small, plastic manicure stick. (Tip: Hang on to that little stick; you can use it as a cuticle pusher too.)
I did file down my own nails so this length would fit. However, I failed to file the shape of the false nail so that it would fit better against my cuticle. It actually is only obvious upon close inspection, as in these photos. I will file the false nail at the cuticle edge, next time, for a more real look. And still, you can tell that the width and length of the false nails are perfect.
French manicures always make me feel ritzy. But when it’s a fancy French, I want to break out the ‘real’ diamond rings. It’s that la-te-da!
Do keep in mind that false nails should only be worn for the recommended 7 to 10 days and then replaced. Definitely something I would need to be mindful of as my thumbnail is more bowed inward than my other nails. Thus, the false nail didn’t set on it quite as flush. I do want to say that the pink gel glue is mighty powerful. I didn’t pop a single one of these. And I did all my normal, daily stuff.
Regardless about my funky thumbnails, I’m giving Revlon Runway Collection two thumbs up. Princess Libby approves of being prissy with these nails. 🙂
Do you like fancy French manicures? How about the subtlety of this style?
