Static Nails: Giving New Life to the Glue-On Nail

Static Nails Shattered Deeds review on BeautyJudy

Disclaimer: I bought this. In 2010, I reviewed glue-on nails and came to the conclusion that I’m just “not a fake nails girl.” Which is why I surprised myself when I purchased a set of Static Nails, which retails as the “All-in-One Pop-On Manicure” that’s reusable.
