I bought this kit to attempt to do my own nails at home... I thought it would be harder than it was... all I needed was this kit, some tips, and files and I was on my way. It was so easy! I am on week 3 with these nails and I did a fill at week 2. These have lasted longer than any I've ever had done at a salon! I will upload a pic I took before I painted them... the white tips are longer because my natural nails are extremely short so I painted over them. Also keep in mind this was my very first time doing nails period! I am very pleased with this product! I'll definitely be buying full sizes and keep doing them at home!
