    The other kind being fingernails. I can’t have pretty nails because of a problem with two of the nails on each hand; so I decided to try some falsies. When I bought a set and attempted to use them, I discovered that my real nails are wider than the store-bought kind. My thumbnail is half again as wide as those in the box – and I’m not a big girl or with large hands. So…does anyone know of a product on the market for someone with my problem?

    Hugs,
    Bettylou

      Some brands of falsies don’t fit my thumbs either.  I’ve had good luck with Static Nails.  They claim to fit the hands of drag queens….and I believe them.  They look good too.

      A trick I learned from a make up artist is to buy false female Toe–nails for your bigger mail thumb nails. This solves the problem of coverage on your bigger nails. I have big hands and wont “go public” unless I”‘ve done my nails”

      Between the “normal” finger and bigger “toe”, I end up with good coverage.

      But you do end up with lots of tiny ones in the bin!!…

      Go have a manicure done and let them put nails on that fit. It’s worth it!

      If you have a cloth tape measure could you measure across your thumb nail?  Mine measure about 5/8″ or 15mm.  I’ve always had good luck with Kiss Impress medium length press on nails.  They come in packs of 30 assorted sizes. I found if I laid them out carefully I could get two full usable sets out of a package. The hard part is finding them anymore.  Over the years I bought lots of sets on sale both at Amazon and ebay. They also sometimes had buy one get one free sales at the Kiss website and I would buy a bunch of sets at a time every time they had that promotion. I’m not sure why they stopped selling them. Possibly they were larger than most women could use and they didn’t want to sell to cross dressers but don’t know that for sure. You can still find some on ebay. You can easily wear them for a week and I once wore a set for 14 days without losing one but they were starting to look bad so I removed them.

        Hi Grace,

        Nails for men? And Caty just told me they sell toe nail kits, also! A girl can sure learn a lot hanging around here.

        Hugs,
