First time trying the Magic Press version of dashing diva. I have not tried fake "plastic" nails since I was in middle/high school and everyone knows that they were not dependable, always fell off and felt uncomfortable. But THESE are a whole other story, they feel like actual nails, if you prep your nail correctly, they stay on SO well. They don't feel like that they are about to fall off or that you have to be extra careful with your hands just to protect them. I work a tough job and these nails got through it all still looking as good as the day I put them on. The only flaw I noticed was some of the green nail color scratched off towards the end. It takes about two weeks before you feel like you should take them off as they start to peel off towards the bottom a little. But I had so many extra nails, I could just replace the ones falling off and they would last probably two more weeks. Anyway, good stuff.
