Are there any things I can use to imitate nails? I know this is a weird question, but my best friend can do nails really good. She can do zebra stripes, polka dots, and a lot more. I want to be able to practice, but my sisters already have their nails done and don't want them ruined. I need something to imitate nails so I can practice. Please help.
How about the fake nails from the dollar store? You could use clay or glue to fasten them to a box or something to hold them still and practice on them. There are usually 20 or more in a package.
I like the idea also of the fake nails, you could get several packs from the 'everythings a dollar' type stores. You could even glue them onto straws, or onto the edge of an old book, for practice. Best of luck to you! I admire the painted designs I see on nails, to be able to do something so pretty, on such a tiny surface!
Why don't you buy a pair of gardening gloves and fill them with uncooked rice, stitch them up at the top. Apply some fake nails to the tips with hot glue and practice.
I agree, cheap fake nails would be the way to go.
