How long does nail varnish stay on for?
I would say that nail varnish stays on for about a week, but sometimes longer.....it depends, but heat/hot water etc does weaken the nails and make them chip etc. As false nails, nail varnish also grows with your nails. It is important that when you are putting nail varnish on that you dont go right to the cutical and around the edge of your nails as that makes them chip, and they dont last as long. If you cover your nail varnish with clear nail varnish, then they have a chance of staying on longer.

Will a ripped off fingernail grow back?
My nail was ripped off from wearing acrylics when I was defending myself from a punch. I suggest never to wear acrylics if you may be in a situation where you use your hands alot. Also, yes they will eventually grow back granted your nail bed was not damaged too much. At this point my nail hasn't grown back yet and it has been over a month and three weeks, but I spoke with other people who have had their nails ripped off or lost their nail due to injury or knew someone who did and they said firstly: It will grow into a hard shell (not nail), which mine has done and later approximately within one year, the nail should grow back. I learned this from a certified cosmotologist and a nail technician. Mine was surgically removed from beneath the cutical and sometimes severe trauma can result in either the nail never growing back (this coming from a surgeon) or it may grow back somewhat deformed (this coming from the nail technician and cosmotologist). The best I can tell you is protect your nail from any infection. Cover it daily with a bandage with some gauze and triple biotic ointment like neosporin and use what the doctors tell you. Do not allow for water to touch the open wound and let it heal for at least two weeks until exposing it to air. Also eat vitamins and eat plenty of protein biotin vitamins supplements and silica, these help with the nail and hair. Zinc is also a key nutrient. Nails show signs of malnutrition so eat zinc as well, if you have white dots.

How do you paint your toes?
Step 1- take out all the things you need which is clear nail polish, foot lotion or just regular lotion foot lotion would be better, clippers (if needed), nail filaler, the color or colors that you want for your toes and wedges to separate your toes when you start painting them, nail polish remover(if needed),cutical oil, etc. Step 2-(If you have nail polish on your toes already, then take the nail polish remover and a Cotton ball and then rube all of your toes until the nail polish comes off.) you do not have to do this but take a big bowl where both of your feet can fit in it, fill it up with warm water and let your toe nails soak. Soak for about a minute or two. Step 3- when you are done doing that, let your feet air dry. Put some cuticle oil on your toes, wait for 30 seconds for the cuticles to absorb the oil and then wipe it off with something soft. Step 4- when done doing that, take out the nail clippers or nail filaler and clip or file your nails. Step 5 - take the wedges and put them between your toes, then take your clear nail polish and put a thin clear layer of nail polish on your toes and then let completely dry. Step 6- when completely dry, take the color of nail polish that you want your toes to be and paint on each nail. From the cuticle back to the end of the nail. Do the same with the other foot and each other nail. Step 7- when you are done doing that put on a second coat by repeating step 6. Let your toes dry completely. Step 8- put on another thin clear coat on top of the nail. You are doing this so your nail polish wont chip so easily. Let completely dry. Step 8- last step! When completely dry, take the foot lotion or regular lotion and rube it onto your skin. This will help you make your feet look nice and unashey with your beautiful toes!
