Terrific Tips Nail Tip Stickers
I liked the idea of being able to reuse my acrylic nails using these stickers.
The stickers were way to thick and my nails seemed to be floating on a bed of clear goo.
I'm harder on my nails than a lot of people but these still only held for 2 days. One let go the first day. I think because they were so high of the nail they caught on stuff easier.

Out of all the products on the market, this one beats them all. For artificial nails, they really stick. It's the only kind I'll buy.

Tiptoe through Summer!
I love a good pedicure, complete with toe rings and cute sandals, but since I've lost both my big toenails in medical procedures over the last few years, a partial pedicure with only 8 toenails looks a little off balance! I found the glue-on kind of prepolished, French Pedicure and blank "paint them yourself" toenails but hesitated to SuperGlue them to my skin on the big toes. These work beautifully for those. In fact, once I have all 10 done, you can't even tell any of them aren't my own.
For stronger wear, I put one tab on my toe, then peel the backing paper off on the exposed surface. Then I apply one to the back of the toenail, and with all the sizes available, it's not hard to get a good fit. Then, after I take the backing off of the sticky outter side of the one on the nail, I stick it to the sticky side up of the tab already on my toe. They stick to each other very well, and don't damage the skin at all.
They look great - because you can't see them! The nails stay on until I'm ready to soak them off in the shower. I can reuse the same nails for a while by peeling off the old sticky tabs, making sure they are very dry, and applying new ones.
I also keep some extra tabs in my purse, so that if one gets knocked loose by accident, it doesn't take long to have them looking great again! LOVE THEM!!!
You could probably apply the same principles to missing finger nails too.
