Unboxing- Came in an easy to open plastic resealable bag. Inside is 6 mini resealable bags with one glue and one tip per bag. Convenient for disposing and keeping the flies that have been used away from the non used ones. Also 6 bags with (made sure) twenty per bag. Each bag is a different color. - Use 1- trim nails 2- fill cap with 1/3 adhesive 3- slide nail caps onto nails 4- observe for five minutes
Review Pros - Perfect size - each nail tip isn’t made fast each one is accurate sized - glitter colors - glue with TIPS - easy to use
Cons —-none Update- as I went to close the bag actually the zipperlock bag it all came the reseal isn’t attached so it won’t reseal not a big deal doesnt affect the actual product just adding to the review
I’ve purchased different companies nail tips as the years go by. This by far was the best value with accurate tips. You can check my other reviews I just recently purchased a different brand same price ish but those were definitely not worth the value each were cheaper made With these they all are correct I would definitely recommend this company! Will be buying this again!
I got these for my two little kittens (aren’t they adorable?), who like to climb the window screens, climb my new mattress, climb the ottoman, climb my leg, etc. They work to stop the little sweet monsters from stabbing me and shredding everything I own, and look tres chic, oui? My girls are less enthused about them than I am, and have been trying very hard to gnaw them off. Much like a lot of young girls do with their first set of acrylic nails, in fact. I fully expect some of them to get loose, and I fully expect to keep reapplying them until they get as used to them as they are to their collars and harness, which they also were not fond of but now accept. Much like a lot of girls feel when they have to start wearing bras, in fact.
Some tips for the tips - trim them down more than you think you need to. I didn’t with the first one, and I needed up slightly gluing my kittens nail stuck open, which she very reasonably HATED. And I felt horrible for doing that to her. As long as the pointy sharp bits are covered, it’s better to have them short and not hurt your kitty than to have them too long and cause them pain, yes? A kitten’s pinky nails are teeny, btw. Also, if you can...sneak attack their nails while they’re sleeping. It is a fact that they tend to wiggle a lot less when they’re asleep. You may have to do the caps one nail at a time while they’re sleeping over the course of a few days. If you haven’t made a habit of playing with your kittens feet, start doing it as often as you can, for as long as they let you. You want them to tolerate or ignore you handling their toes, just in general. I decided to only do the front toes on their front paws, which are the biggest source of their shredding super power. I hope that in time they will let me do a full set of feet, perhaps with an accent nail on each foot. I can dream....but I don’t have high hopes, haha.
I really like the glue bottles. They come with a very small applicator tip that makes it easy to smush glue all the way down into the point of the tips. Because the hole is so small, the glue doesn’t dry out instantly when, for example, you’re hovering over a sleeping kitty trying to give them a stealth pawdicure during the course of several minutes. Just for an example. Not like, any kind of real life scenario or anything.
The only negative I have is that they are kind of hard to put on, being that they’re teeny tiny, filled with superglue, and you’re trying not to glue your kittens feet together. I wish there was some kind of holding tool designed for these caps. I don’t think tweezers would work, but feel free to try. I ended up with superglue all over my thumb and first finger, but hey, at least my kittens have 4 unglued toes, right?
Bottom line - they work really well but please be careful putting them on your sweet kitty. Four sparkly-toed paws up!
4/6/19: So far so good. Nice colors and great price. My cat has a skin condition and he is very sweet and relaxed, it takes no time or effort to get these on him but is a great precaution to protect his skin in case his cone slips off. It also protects our new couch.
The last claw caps we put on him, my mom got them on Wish for $1. They lasted 4-5 MONTHS, so I have hopes these will last too but only time will tell. If I have to update my review, I will. He is 7lbs and the size S fit great.
Beware, though. This glue smells horrible and burns my nose, but it appears to be safe and the pink applicator helps LOTS.
4/8/19: Alright. These suck. Don't waste your money. Over half of them fell off within 24hrs. As said.. 40 caps for $1 on Wish lasted months and these couldn't even last a day on an 11 year old sickly cat who sleeps the day away. My cat does not run around, play, or scratch his tower. All he does is cuddle and sleep and these still couldn't hold up. Disappointment.
In my photos you can see that he only has one left on that paw, less than 48hrs later.
Our cat had a hotspot with bad swelling just above his eye, and he had to wear a cone of shame for several months just to prevent him from scratching at it. Any time we’d take off the cone, he had to be held or he’d immediately start scratching and require more healing time. And even with the cone, he’d still find ways to irritate the wound. After three months, he’d made no progress.
These claw caps are soft enough to prevent scratching, and we were able to ditch the cone within a few short days of putting on the caps. I definitely wish I’d known about these sooner. What the vet thought might have been a tumor is now almost completely gone, and our cat Anthony is happier than ever to be rid of his cone. It’s been about three weeks since we got these, and we haven’t had to replace any of the caps (they’re only on his back feet). The glue that comes with them seems very strong. I’d say the number of pieces this kit comes with is very excessive, but the color options are nice.
All cats are different and some might be more likely to chew these off, so your mileage may very. But for how cheap they are, they’re definitely worth a try if your cat is scratching at a wound. I wouldn’t recommend them for a cat’s front claws, especially if they spend time outside. You’re essentially temporarily declawing the cat by using these. It’s also important to pay close attention to the nail trimming instructions.
I was super skeptical, but these caps have afforded our cat the freedom he’s been waiting months for. They also saved us potentially hundreds on a second vet visit/biopsy. HIGHLY recommended.
Great colors, I received blue, turquoise, pink, purple, silver, and gold. Twenty of each color, all glittery. I ordered the xs for my 12 week old kitten, they fit her great, went on super easy. Came with 6 tubes of adhesive all with their own applicator that fits easily into these tiny claw covers. Took me 5 mins to apply these, only did the front claws. My cat took about an hour to get use to them, shaking her front paws a little as she walked, lol. That didn't last long though. She is adjusting to the fact that she can't just jump up on anything now because she doesn't have the claws to dig in with. That being said, my curtains survived the attack today when she tried to play with them but was unable to attach herself to them to scale up them as she has been doing in the past. I would say all in all this was a successful purchase. Thank you.
These nail caps work and stay on, provided the kitten doesn’t move her paw when placing on the nails. It does a fantastic job It IS thinner than the more expensive name brand, but when we add the glue, it makes the caps stronger when dried. I do not see any benefit to buying the more expensive brand (which I use to do), when the cat sheds it’s nails, that’s when I wait a few days before applying new. I love the variety of colors in the new order Tip: add nail glue into the cap. wait about 5 minutes before placing on the felines. Also add just a bit more glue to the tip top ridge of the nail cap, which will make it near impossible for the cat to bite and pull them off The batch I got did not have a bad smell
These are GREAT! So pretty! I love that they are a little see-through so you can see the glue inside. The only possible reason for a bad review would be from someone who has never used nail caps on a cat or their cat just can't tolerate them. If you know how to and like using nail caps on your kitty, BUY THESE. One thing of note; my cats are big cats; 12 and 16 lbs. I ordered the Med size. Several of my kitties' claws are going to need Small size.
We just put these on this morning, and so far, they work great. Our cat is 8 months now, and he plays very rough. Our household gets scratched every day. I saw these and thought they would be a good idea. At first he didn't really like them, he actually pulled one of them off. But we replaced it, and since then he hasn't really even noticed they are there. They work great, but I would not recommend them to anyone who has an outdoor cat since cats need their claws for protection. When my cat jumps on things he uses his claws to stabilize himself, and he isn't able to do that any longer. We only put them on his front paws since that is the way that we get scratches.
The first couple applications I didn't do as well and got excess glue on his fur and myself. Now I'm much better and I'm finding these so easy to get on. The trick is to get the paw held just right and kind of push their claw out so it's extended. Then these just slide right up over and you hold it for a couple seconds and voila your kitty now has adorable covered nails. If you don't do great the first application or two don't give up because they really do work well once you get the hang of applying them.
I got the smallest size available which is supposed to be good for kittens and they were still too big for my kittens' claws. (My kittens are about 3 months old.) It was easy to trim them down to fit each claw, just more time consuming. My kittens are very docile and like to lay in our laps and they still got restless just applying the front feet (we aren't going to apply to the back). It took about 10-15 mins per cat to apply the first time. Now I just reapply as needed when one comes off. I love the look and they don't seem to bother my kittens at all. Very much recommend and will continue to reorder as needed.
