  1. I've been a professional since 1995 and couldn't help but click on the video as I've never heard of using cornstarch as a replacement for acrylic and I'm actually quite surprised the nail held up as long as it did. I will admit using this method for a quick fix with a sliver of silk, mesh or nylon glued over a tear or semi-break for stability on a natural nail seems like a very good option in a pinch.

  2. But…. the problem it's only in a part of the nail, no in all the nail, so why only in that part? Why the other part is ok? Actually since the beginning when you put the nail on I saw that mistake, that part was with another color…

  3. Im pretty sure that the cornstarch failed because of the nail oil added, it kept it from hardening completely. It wouldnt have stayed for long anyway, but it definitely would have lasted longer.

  4. Just a guess, but I suspect this was created for that time when you're getting ready for a date, job interview, whatever, and you break a nail but don't have time to run down to the salon or it's after hours. It can work as a temporary solution.

  5. Put on the tip. Dry. Cut a piece of tea bag the size of the whole nail. Polish nail. Lay on tea bag. Dry. Polish. Cut piece of tea bag the size of the tip. Polish tip. Lay on piece of tea bag. Dry. Repeat filling rough parts until it's full. File and buff smooth. Finish polishing.

  6. So, the conclusion to this is Scientifically, cornstarch isn't strong enough to hold as a nail, Ive also seen it work for some people and look Damn Good ☺️ If it works for you, Do You, If it doesn't don't do it. It's that simple.

  7. The reason someone decided to use cornstarch is because if you create a thick paste of cornstarch. Very thick, lots of starch and very little water and you "quickly" slap down on it , it feels hard like plastic. But if you "slowly" press down on this same paste your finger with sink into it. This is the weird property of cornstarch. They do this experiment in science class all the time. it's strange but if could sometimes feel hard so they thought if would work on nails.

  8. Your videos are amazing. I have a question. I understand that you don't recomend the cornstarch as a replacement of any gel or acrylic when you build a nail or when you put a plastic tip but, how about to put it in your own nails for give them more hardness?

  9. I really dislike pointed tips BUT, On you they're GORGEOUS!! I wish more nail techs would know how to shape nails. I personally like the oval shape, but I have yet to find anyone who knows how to shape nails well. Ant tips on how to find a salon or nail tech that's actually does nails well. They seem to have all hidden themselves away. I enjoyed watching!!

  10. I would like to add, bit late I know, I am allergic to all traditional fake nails. E.g. acryic, gel, nail glue etc. Therefore putting a fake nail on with super glue and then doing a few dips of cornflour with clear nail polish doesn't give me any allergic reaction. But still gives an acrylic nail look. I haven't worn fake nails for years in fear of breaking out, but this works for me 🙂
