Okay but short
on December 18, 2011
The seller did a simple but great job of packaging and shipping. My only qualms are with the product itself.
As background, my ring finger is a size 6.5, my gloves a size small. While I don't have super tiny hands, they're still pretty small. I found these guides to only extend beyond the nail of my thumb by at most 2 mil total. That's not a lot of space and is far too short for anyone with nails at all larger than my own.
I also found the curve of the regular (non-art) guides to be too severe. I don't know if this is because I maintain short nails or if I just prefer a more gradual curve, but the results just weren't quite what I was looking for.
Additionally, I found the guides to be too sticky even after using my skin to lessen the adherence.
Finally, my only other complaint is very minor. I have very deep nail beds and I found that the guides did not bend very well in order to get full coverage in the corners. Honestly, this can be an issue with most guides so I don't view this as a huge problem.
In sum, I will use them until they're gone but will not be buying these guides again. The seller seems pretty good, though.
