Nails are wrapped and polished

my pinky looks a little bit thicker due to the wrap being on it but I can deal with that.I left my nails natural cus they didn't look that bad.some people have imperfections on their real nails so i am not too bothered by it. I have to say the wraps weren't that hard to do. it was getting them to fit that was a problem. having to trim and trim I did use only one wrap for both fingers since i had so much leftover. I wasn't going to waste it.
I did two coats of IA over the wraps then did one of rock topcoat. I probably could have used another coat you can faintly see the cross marks of the wrap but no one would notice that but me.
I really would like to get a uv lamp to cure my nails but today was sunny so i went outside to cure the topcoat. the UV light will have to wait cus that bad boy is like 50 - 60 bucks
Seche vite has one but the reviews on that one arent good. that one cost like 24 bucks.

My other middle nails is a tad weak i am always paranoid about breaking it even with the IA I think i filed it weird so that is the problem. I may end up wrapping it but who knows. I have to say that instant artificials was so worth it. i totally love it.

I found and tried the IA, too. Both my mom and I can tell the difference with it. But it doesn't hold up to doing dishes at work :( I don't think anything will, tbh. Thankfully I only have to do that once a week.

I used 2 coats. I thought about using gloves, but I can't stand the feeling of water inside of them. It completely freaks me out. Our sink at work is almost 2.5 feet deep, so I'm usually up to my elbows. IA is a lot better than anything else I've ever tried, so I'm going to chalk it up to a hazard of the job.

well at least you can tell it does work. Just too bad washing the dishes at work messes it up.. but then if its once a week i'd just redo my nails after that part of the week lol
I hope your nails do grow while using it though.
