    They’re GORGEOUS!!! How do you do the clean-up so meticulously that you don’t hit the finished nail..? I use Q-Tips but always seem to bump the finish on my nail and make an ugly spot.

    Interesting technique but couldnt you get similar result with regular chrome polish? Those lizard talon nails are awful tho. Whats the attraction for long pointy fingernails?
