Note that each finger is handmade so that they can vary slightly from the images such as small bubbles, bumps or lines, slight difference in skin color, etc. The fingers are ready to use and perfect for beginners, schools that need models (no more "model no-show" problems) and for nail techs or nail enthusiasts who want to play with nail art or practice on nail art techniques or record / shoot nail tutorials. The fingers really feel like a real finger, which is perfect for practicing all sorts of techniques. It has delicate cuticles and sidewalls just like a real human being, so be careful not to cut them.
HOW TO USE THE FINGER: Insert the tip into the cuticle pocket as deep as you can - the finger is ready to be used immediately. For example, you can practice nail art in this way. Just remove the tip from the cuticle pocket and add a new one when you are done. You can save the finished tips and attach them to your finger later if you wish (this can be seen in the product video here on this product page).
If you want to make the nail more stable, use Red Iguana's "Silicone Primer" and apply to the nail bed and then use the glue "Gorilla Glue Gel" which is available HERE (important that you use this glue!). Insert the tip into the pocket of the cuticle as deep as you can. Apply a small amount of glue between the tip and the silicone finger and gently push the tip down onto the nail bed. Hold for 30-60 seconds. Make sure to remove the excess glue if it runs out on the cuticles. Then let it dry for about 5-10 minutes, you are then ready to start using your hand again. This technique is perfect if you want to practice gel or acrylic application as you can file on the nail without it having it flying off the finger.

We recommend that you add a "safety layer" with for example gel on the tip so you don't accidentally file through the tip when it's time to remove the material (you remove the material just like your would with a real customer / person), but if you would rather like to soak the material (acrylic) off, give it enough time - the tip needs to be dissolved deeply under the cuticle zone (silicone does not dissolve in acetone). Repeat previous steps to attach new tips.
VIDEO - WITH OR WITHOUT FIXED TIPS?
If you accidentally damage the silicone finger, scratch the cuticle or the sides, you can fix it with "Devcon Silicone Adhesive" or "Sil-Poxy" by "Smooth-On". Just apply a small amount of glue to the damaged area and allow it to dry completely.
If your finger gets dirty from dust, glitter / chrome pigments etc., just wash it with a little bit of soap in warm water. You can use a soft brush to remove chrome and glitter / flakes.
