Kim Kardashian has made it onto my radar as have her sisters. I admit it. I follow them on Insta, so what. I’m not too sure what inspired me to try this heinous fad out but I did. Maybe it was too many nights of being holed in by the excess of snow, scanning Instagram one too many times, being exposed to this offensive nail trend on Kylie’s absurdly frequently updated account but either way I took the plunge. For a whopping $150 the nail place dipped each of my nails into a gel base and let it drip dry (which was more of an artistic appeal to me than the nails themselves) and proceeded to shape, file, buff and polish.
I hated them immediately.
First of all, I would like to know how women have any sort of productivity with these claws on. The truth is: they don’t. The longer the nails the more assistants you need. Not assistance – I mean ASSISTANTS as in additional human beings because you cannot do jack shit with these on. Seeing that I don’t have assistants you can only imagine this experience. I have never in my life had more typos than when I had these and that is a HUGE statement for me. Needless to say I could not zip a fly or cut a carrot while flaunting these tips so for those of you out there without multiple assistants it is highly unadvisable to invest in these extensions.
