DIY FAKE COFFIN NAILS AT HOME

Hello Beauties!

Today I want to share my nail secret with you guys…I wear press on’s! Only I think I do a pretty good job at not making them look like press on nails. After getting acrylic nails religiously for years, last Fall I finally decided to take them off for a training class. To my surprise, after removing the tips, my real nails and nail bed were severely damaged. It took me 4-6 months before my nails grew past my skin and even then they were VERY brittle.

After getting acrylic nails religiously for years, last December I finally decided to take them off for a training class. To my surprise, after removing the tips, my real nails and nail bed were severely damaged. It took me 4-6 months before my nails grew past my skin and even then they were VERY brittle.

Moving forward I attempted to opt for a better solution- gel nails. Only everytime I went to the nail salon, the technician tried to convince me that the powder + liquid duo that he was pulling out (before I even told him what I wanted) was a “gel-powder“. 🤔🤔🤔 How could it be a gel if it was a powder, you ask? Yeah me too, that’s when I got myself up out of that chair and swore off nail salons.

My only problem is that I really actually enjoy tips and the cool sound they make when tapping against my keyboard.😔 It sort of makes me feel sophisticated, you know.

I decided that I was going to try and do them myself. I do remember wearing press-on nails back in school, you know the kind that popped off every other period? Yeah, those. I knew I was taking a chance with this press-on situation but I decided to try it out anyway.

To my surprise, my nails came out pretty darn professional looking, and the best part is, they last for about a week! Very cheap, very low maintenance, and very EASY to do! Check out the tutorial below!
