Revlon Runway Collection Starlet Artifical Nails

When I want that perfect manicure look, false nails do not fail.  As I'm perfecting my manicure skills, false nails give me the look like I spent a lot of money at the salon.

These are Revlon's Runway Collection.  This style is 'Starlet' and they are medium length.

 It might be a bit hard to see, but this is a 'special' french manicure.  While the nail is light pink, the tip is white with silver and opaque white designs.  Even in person, there's just a hint that there is something different about this French.
Do excuse the thumb.  It seemed to be having a bad nail day.

The set comes with 28 nail tips in 12 different sizes.  I have the tiniest pinky nail so I was very happy to find that there was a size for me.  There was a bottle of pink gel glue, a tiny emery board and small, plastic manicure stick. (Tip: Hang on to that little stick; you can use it as a cuticle pusher too.)
I did file down my own nails so this length would fit.  However, I failed to file the shape of the false nail so that it would fit better against my cuticle.  It actually is only obvious upon close inspection, as in these photos.  I will file the false nail at the cuticle edge, next time, for a more real look.  And still, you can tell that the width and length of the false nails are perfect.
French manicures always make me feel ritzy.  But when it's a fancy French, I want to break out the 'real' diamond rings.  It's that la-te-da!
Do keep in mind that false nails should only be worn for the recommended 7 to 10 days and then replaced.  Definitely something I would need to be mindful of as my thumbnail is more bowed inward than my other nails.  Thus, the false nail didn't set on it quite as flush.  I do want to say that the pink gel glue is mighty powerful.  I didn't pop a single one of these.  And I did all my normal, daily stuff. 

Regardless about my funky thumbnails, I'm giving Revlon Runway Collection two thumbs up.  Princess Libby approves of being prissy with these nails. :)

Do you like fancy French manicures?  How about the subtlety of this style?

This product was provided to me from Revlon for review and to give my honest opinion.

How long do these last? I've been tempted w/ them before but haven't because I just didn't know how they'd hold up. E has used them before but you can't judge a nail product all the time by how it wears on a 9-year-old's nails! :)
