I received these nails complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. Honestly, I was a little hesitant about them. Once I tried them, though, I really liked them! Despite getting the glue all over the place, they looked really nice. They were the "real short" length but they were a good length and not that short at all. The box stated they should last 7 days, but my thumb popped off on the 3rd day while getting a knot out of a 2nd graders shoelace. It was a clean break so I could have glued it back on easily but I just took them all off. I purchased more so I can try again soon!
