Like having a beat face and hair that’s worthy of a double-take, making sure that your nails look top-notch at all times is one of the essential elements of a true glam diva. Some women don’t want the commitment of acrylic or gel nails. Some balk at the expensive price. Or some are simply just hesitant to try out something new. Whatever the reason is for opting out of artificial nails, look no further! An oldie but goodie nail alternative is back in modern form.
