I have not had any luck with keeping the "extras" for any length of time. The first set, I tried sticking the rest back in the package and sealing them in a Ziploc in case I needed to do any touch-ups - the strips just ended up dried out and brittle. You might be better off trying the stick on, non-nail polish strips (Sephora Nail Bling) for just one or two fingers. They are a little less expensive too. :) I'm on day three of Gilded Lily with no chipping or peeling. Good luck!

Cannot reuse like other kinds. The product dries out once the plastic cover is removed. So you must use it in it's entirety the first application. :) Looks very nice though and still worth it.

Doesn't work :( I even tried to take the strips that had lost their adhesive and stick them on with nail glue. That doesn't work either, even after being soaked. They get hard to the point where they crack if you pull at them. Plus I ended up gluing my fingers together in the process. :o

Do these wear well?

These did not work for me because after i did my first hand i went to go do my second and the other strips dried out in about 4 min.

I have never used these (or any other brand) before. I had them on for about 2.5 weeks and needed to remove them because my nails had grown out and I needed a change. The Mod style really camouflages any chipping that does occur but I found it to be minimal and I was cleaning my house and generally being rough on these things.

they dry out quickly, so it's a one time use. they are also very easy to warp, stick together, and rip while you're putting them on, so they might not survive to put on more than one person's nails.

You can't use them multiple times, as they dry out since they are made of real nail laquer. So they're a one time use item, they just include extas just in case you mess up.

I had leftovers after doing all nails and my big toes (all of which are SHORT). I followed the directions of sealing the extras in a baggie for later use or touch-ups, but I didn't need touch-ups and haven't tried using them again, so I'm not sure if it actually worked. They would be great to share with a friend, if you both have short nails!

People have different sized fingers. The extra strips are so you have a better chance of having the right size for your finger without a lot of work trimming or patching. For me, I had leftovers because I have short nails and could use one strip for two nails. I could get another partial application out of the leftovers (like every other nail, or something).

I believe they include so many so you can match them to the size of your nails. There was one that was way smaller than my pinkie nail and a few that were WAY bigger than my thumb nail. I think they are just trying to provide different sizes to work for a wide variety of people.

You're supposed to file them downwards at the tip of your nail. If you mean that they're too big for your nail beds, I suggest placing one with the film and what-not still stuck to it and bend it to make sure it will or will not fit your nail. I myself had a few that were slightly too big (maybe a millimeter) and after I applied them and waited a day, the polish on my skin acted just as a normal polish would and flaked off without ruining the rest of my nail! Hope this helped :)

It's very easy and they work just as well as if you were applying the nail strips to natural nails.
