Nails extension: temporary ? length ?

Recommended Posts

Hello ! :-)

In January, I'm play a role in an amateur movie where I'll be some kind of "bimbo" ^^ Should be fun but I need to have my nails done, which is something I don't often do.

Two questions about that:

- is there some kind of nails extensions I can keep for about a week, then make them remove with no or few "nail harm" afterwards ? I know acryllic extensions let the nails in a kinda poor state then... Cause after that week, I get back to my regular job and my nails need to be "regular" again 😉

- which length should I choose so my nails prevent me to proprely use my phone or a keyboard ? (remember, I'm supposed to play a bimbo !) I really need to feel desperate while trying to use my fingers ^^ But it also has to be "regular", not like in a drag show ! lol

If you can help, thank you !

Hi Cindy,

Question 1)

Yes, there are, Gels and acrylics. Most if not all productions will have a Nail Tech or MuA apply and remove the acrylics daily, that's in the actors' union contract. Some productions send their actors to a nail salon to get their nails done.

Question 2)

That question and decision is up to the Director. Remember, film productions understand that cast have to live in the real world too, just like the rest of us, so all those factors you mentioned above have already been taken into consideration months ago in pre-production, and in H/M/W meetings.

Good luck and have fun on set in January!

If exercising for longer than 60 minutes, consider a sports drink.Sun ProtectionSun protection is the best way to prevent aging for young skin. You must use sunscreen every single day of the year, not just when it's sunny. At the beach, people often focus on the SPF number, but it's really about applying sunscreen generously and reapplying often (at least every two hours),. If you have sensitive, oily, acne-prone skin and require a sunscreen that dries to a matte finish, use a formula with zinc oxide. For normal to dry skin, us a chemical-free, all-mineral formula,  If you err on the size of lazy, dusting on an SPF-infused mineral powder onto the face is a fast and easy way to instantly protect the skin from the sun.

    • Hi girls! I am looking for a very natural, everyday nude lipstick. I am light-brown-fair-haired and my skin is pale with pink undertones and that causes every lipstick to look very pinky on me.

Has any of you girls tried either of two?
