Even so, fake nails come with a whole lot of challenges. If you are gonna get fake nails, brace yourself for the struggles that they come with. Ask any girl with fake nails and they will tell you that it isn’t all easy.

Typing on the keyboard is a real struggle

First, if your job involves a lot of typing, you can as well forget about acrylics and stick-ons – unless you want them short. As if it’s not enough trouble, the fake nails draw all the attention towards you because of the noise they produce.

Putting on stockings

It’s almost impossible to wear stockings without tearing them with your nails.

Picking a fallen coin is no longer that easy

It looks very simple until a coin falls on the counter and you can’t even collect it. Then people around you are staring at you wondering why you are struggling with such an easy task.

Forget about texting

If you can’t do without chatting, then be ready for endless typos because texting with fake nails is quite a challenge.

You can’t clasp your jewelry

They are always on your way
