Nail polish strips

Gel manicures damage my nails. Regular nail polish doesn’t even last a week. Someone told me nail stickers will last for 2 weeks. Do any of you have experience with nail stickers? Favorite brands? Do they last? Are they hard to apply? Thanks for your help!

I have the same problems with gel and regular polish. I have used Impress nails. My DIL told me about them. They usually last about 2 weeks before one may start to come loose. They are super easy to apply - just peel and stick.

I tried one brand of nail stickers. I was allergic to the adhesive. The skin around my nails got itchy and swollen.

I use Color Street. Walmart has some of them under the brand name "Ono" ( I think that is it).

I've used Jammberry and really like them. They do last a couple weeks, longer if I put a clear coat of polish on top in the second week.

I use color street. They stay on way longer than I've ever had a manicure last. If you go the glitter route, make sure you have some really good nail polish remover. Those things are hard to get off (the glitter ones, anyways). Make sure your remover is labeled as glitter remover!

Once you get the hang of it, they are easy to use. They do not come off easily though. Maybe solid colored ones, but if they sparkle or are glittery, be prepared to get out the foil and acetone. They are just as hard to get off as gel.
