I made the mistake of wearing these after I had worn the long ones, so my nails had grown out to be a little too long for some of these. I have about 1-3 mm growth past the fingertips. On that note, the length is nice, however some are notably shorter than others but due to size constraints I had to wear them with others. In other words, my nails with the press ons were not all the same length. I also wasn't able to use one of the accent styles due to none of the sizes fitting. They stay on well provided you size properly. After trying a long style, I discovered that just putting on the sizes that fit your nails is more important than trying to do a certain pattern. Start with the accents first since there are fewer sizes of those. I filed the corners to a bit rounder and the edge where the tab still showed with a glass nail file. Then I put on a gel-like topcoat on the solid ones to give them an upgraded salon-look. The glitter was already nicely plumped and shiny.
