Which false nails are best ?

I need a quick fix
Have very short, bitten nails n need to make them look slightly elegant

Can anyone recommend some glue on ones that I can buy to stick on. French manicure look would be best.

Thank you

I get these

They are very easy to put on, last about a week and look good, but natural. I get lots of compliments when I get round to sticking them on!

I get the same ones viggle - and I always get asked where I had them done. I use them when I get carried away with my biting and need to give them some time to grow.

Thank you ladies, that's just what I need. A good length, not too long. I'm off to my local Boots tomorrow smile

Get yourself a decent glue like Kiss or Nailene, then just buy the french manicure false nails from Poundland or Primark (also £1).

They are great, used to use them before I stopped biting my nails.

I forgot - I also get these - they stick with tabs on the nails and come in lots of colours or French manicure and I find they last as long as the ones with the glue that sticks your fingers together.
