Taping on Your Nails

The right Two-Sided Tape can make nail maintenence a thing of the past.
Krazy glue, Super glue, and rubber cement, can be messy and high maintenance. The right two-sided tape is an alternate means of attaching your fake nails. 3M type VHB two-sided tapes are extremly strong yet simply peel off by rotating leaving no residue on your nails. A large surface area and well fitting nail works best. Great for students. White medical tape is still recommended in case of pop offs. The best tape i’ve found so far is 3M VHB #4905 20 mil x 1/2" available through speciality tape suppliers. Give it a try and you’ll never use glue again.

    hello I found the 3m 4905 vhb tape from a suppyer and I tested it.
    I am using the 1mm thickness double side tape. this tape is made of an acrilic foam. the fakenails stay on the finger, but because of the flexibility of the tape I have the feeling of the nail moving a little bit. I is just question of small movement but i did not feel confortable with it.it is like when u feel u are very near to loose it. do you feel the same?
    This tape is made for dynamic loads and can absorb the movement of the parts connected with it because u can strech it.
    maybe we should try someting for static loads. do u have any idea?
    ciao

    matteo, great comments. yes, the tape can tend to feel a little loosey at times. i’ve have such bad luck with krazy glue ripping off my real nails. i am still looking for the perfect tape. please comment again if you find something better. keep jammin, balu

    matteo, i really want to look into the static vs dynamic loads. also, the tape im using is about half as thich which i like better than the 1mm. keep in touch, balu
