I'd never used any type of press-on or artificial nails in my entire life until I tried these, and I love them! I was trying to avoid the toxic nail polishes, glues, etc, so I figured I'd try these since they have adhesive tabs. My thoughts are that adhesive tabs, being "non-liquid", might penetrate the nail less and therefore be less toxic. (We all know that nail polish chemicals actually get into our bodies because nails are porous). Anyway, I applied these easily, then I used nail clippers to shape the nail exactly as I wanted, which was easy to do. The whole process was fun and took far less time than waiting for various coats of nail polish to dry. I love the color "Beyond The Pale" and let me tell you, it shines far more than is shown in the photo here. I don't know if Dashing Diva makes a metallic series, like chrome, silver, gold, platinum, etc, but I'd love those. Will have to look around and see. Also, I prefer all my nails to be the same color, with no accent nail (just my own personal preference), so I'm glad D.D. makes the solid sets. Thank you! Oh, and in addition to a metallic series, I'd love a holo series too.
