In total, it took me about an hour to apply my first set of nails. It was a bit of a learning curve – I’m sure I could get it down to 30 minutes or even less after a few more applications.

Then, you can add your own nail polish and/or decals (or just leave it blank), then use the builder gel provided in their kits and cure, and then finish it with the topcoat and cure. I will say that I can see the glue and my normal nails underneath if I look super closely, but it’s not super noticeable unless I look at them super close. And if you end up painting a solid color over the base coat, you’d never notice glue underneath. Otherwise, the nails look so good! I will say it’s definitely important to make sure you apply your polish and top coat ASAP after you glue your nails down. I didn’t realize this and ended up scuffing the nails a bit before I was able to apply the top coat (they are pretty easy to scuff up). I will say that I thought these would be fairly difficult to apply after reading the instructions, but they weren’t too bad. They are a bit of extra effort compared to your basic press-on nails, but I’d say it’s well worth it.As great as this sounds, do these actually live up to the hype? I received a few X-coat nails to test out myself and see, so let’s dive into it (spoiler: I’m highly impressed). I will say it’s a little difficult to hold down the nail and put it under the tiny UV lamp they provide in the kit (the glue doesn’t dry unless you cure it under the lamp). I think it would have been super useful if they provided nail clips in the kit, this would be significantly easier than holding it down with my other hand. I have some of these clips from when I tried doing polygel nails, so I’ll have to search for those and give them a try. Also, if you’re debating between a longer set or a shorter set, I’d go for a longer set. The Short Coffin nails were easier to apply compared to the Extra Short Square nails I got. Since you need to press down on the nail while curing it, it can be hard to get a good grip on the shorter nails. As much as I love the ease and affordability of press-on nails, I hate the fact that they almost always come off within a couple of days.

If you don’t want to deal with the extra effort of painting your own nails, you can just skip painting on anything extra and add the builder gel they provide in the kit, then just paint the top coat over the top (which is exactly what I did because I’m lazy).I’m calling them press-on nails, but they are more like a cross between press-on nails and gel nails. They really just add a couple of additional steps (such as curing the glue under a UV light), but this doesn’t take too much longer and it makes the nails last for weeks longer. You can imagine my excitement when I discovered BTArtbox's new line of glue-on nails that they claim last 30 days. Instead of using regular glue that typically comes with press-on nails, these come with glue that is designed to be cured under a curing light. This makes them last extra long. I selected a couple of the French tips styles in various lengths/cuts. They do have a wide variety when it comes to different nail shapes and lengths, which is nice. They also have a few X-Coat Natural options, which is essentially just a blank canvas. Aside from this, their X-Coat Cat Eye option with shiny finishes in different colors and they also have some cute pastel French tips that I’m loving.

Although the X-Coat series doesn’t have many finished designs, I love that their false nails are essentially a minimalistic base coat that can be added onto if desired.
