I remember the first time I wore fake nails to jam. I was amazed at how much easier it was to control the disc, especially since I hadn’t yet mastered the center delay. When the jam was over I suddenly a had a sinking feeling. “How do I take these nails off?” I was given instructions to force my thumb nail between the glue and my natural nail to pry the fake nail off. I tried, but “OUCH!” After about an hour of fiddling around I managed to get the nails off.
Since then, my nail removal skill has greatly improved. Still, I don’t enjoy the process so, I typically leave them on for a few days until the glue loosens up and they fall off naturally. Of course, while the nails are still on I get lot’s of funny looks and questions about them.
