About Tip Stickers?
Tip stickers are
a handy product we have been carrying since early 2001. They
are a double sided adhesive strip that allows you to use your
talon Tru-tips as a temporary press on nail. They can then
be used for short periods of time and easily removed and stored
for your next special occasion. Tip Stickers easily fit into
your purse and are excellent for making repairs to loose nails.
