I recently had the opportunity of having a Custom Nail Solution experience, and I must say it was a pleasant one. At first, I was a little hesitant to try them. I was skeptical about acrylic nails because they have been very damaging to my nails and nail beds in the past. I had seen Custom Nail Solutions on a beauty feature on television and thought I would give them try. After all, who wouldn’t want nails that are guaranteed to ”never break, chip, crack, change shape or stain and will last you a lifetime“! Cost was also a major factor. When I thought about how much money I had spent in the past on Acrylic nails Between full sets, fill-ins, repairs, baby sitters not to mention travel time, wait time, not having time…There were definitely more pros than cons with this decision. Did I mention that Custom Nails are reusable? The investment was worth it.
Custom Nail Solution assures you that the acrylic nails are made of “PlastiFlex” -”An indestructible, high impact thermoplastic that is UV protected, anti-bacterial, anti-microbial and applied with a medical grade, non-toxic adhesive. ”
When my Custom Nails Kit arrived, it contained everything I needed to make my nail impressions, 10 plastic forms (one for each finger) and the molding clay needed for the impressions. Included in the Custom Nail Kit is a throughly detailed DVD, narrated by Katie Sexton herself The DVD gives easy to follow, step by step instructions for making your impressions, applying, care and removal of your new nails. Hang on to that DVD, it will come in handy. I did have my daughter help me with the impressions. Having an assistant was helpful but not necessary. I suggest you view the DVD before making your impressions, it will help make the impression making process easier when watching the DVD a second time.
After the impressions were made, I was able to choose my nail length, smile line and nail shape. I also had a choice of either Solid Pink or French Tip, I chose French Tip. I mailed the impression forms back to Custom Nail Soulutions in the postage paid label which was included in the Custom Nails Impression Kit. Custom Nail Impressions are scanned by their state-of-the-art laser and created in their computer system. If you ever have to replace or reorder nails, they already have your scan. There is no need for another impression. A tracking number was sent to me as soon as my nails were shipped from their plant and I knew exactly when they were going to arrive. Everything was handled so professionally, I was very impressed.
I was very excited when my nails arrived. Each one of the nails fit exactly to the natural nail it was fit for (they are numbered as you will see when the impressions are taken). As Custom Nail Solutions assured me “This nail product is designed specifically for me and can’t be worn by anyone else”. “Your nail bed is as unique as your fingerprint”. That is another reason why they are so elegant looking, they look real. The nails also came with easy to read instructions and a complete Maintenance kit which included everything needed for the care, maintenance and removal of my new custom nails. At their website http://www.customnailsolutions.com/ you can see the various supplies and the different kits and prices. You can select the kit which best fits your needs and your budget.
One of the highlights for me was that I could set up my nails on the nail stand (included) and I could polish my nails thoroughly before hand. With Custom Nails, you can keep them as you ordered them or paint them with any kind of nail polish you wish. Nail Art and nail wraps can also be applied to your Custom Nails. I chose to polish them, and after 2 coats s of nail polish, I was able to let them dry thoroughly for one day before I glued the nails on. I could never have done this at a nail salon. I have never left a nail salon without the slightest smudge or scratch. My new Custom Nails looked perfect and the polish was hard as a rock. Here is the astonishing news! After wearing my Custom Nails for over a week, I enjoyed them so much that I ordered a second set in a shorter size. That is how impressed I was. I was just as impressed with the removal of my nails. My nails and nail beds looked great. There was no damage which usually occurs from the drill used in salons. I could go without my Custom Nails for a few weeks and not have my nails looking unsightly until they grew out. I took my nails off to do some gardening and put them back on two weeks later to attend a wedding. I also want to mention that you can use regular nail polish remover on your Custom nails and I polished them ahead of time so they were ready to wear for the wedding. It was nice to put my nails on at home and not worry about finding the time to make a nail appointment.
Custom Nails was the perfect solution to my nail dilemma. It was easy, convenient, extremely cost effective but most of all, my acrylic nails look fantastic, and when your nails look fantastic, you hands will look fantastic, therefore you will feel fantastic and that truly is the most important aspect of all. Look and feel fantastic with Custom Nail Solutions.
