I can accept the fact that it is fake, but can anyone tell me the major give-away?
Fake mercury and Roosevelt dimes

The shape of the D is always important to examine. It is kind of tall and boxy The inside is triangular in shape. The serifs are never pointy.

After this, buff your nails with a nail buffer optional, but highly recommended. By buffing your real nails before applying the fake nails, you are creating a better bonding surface for the fake nails to adhere to.
I have applied fake nails to non-buffed and buffed nails, and my fake nails stay on longer when I buff before application! Finally, file your nails and then wipe them with nail polish remover to remove any oils and dust from your nails. There is no need to put glue on the tip of the fake nail since the tip will not be adhering to anything.
You will have a couple of seconds to move the nail to your desired position before the glue starts to cure. Once in the correct position, press the fake nail firmly to your real nail for 10 seconds. This post may contain affiliate links.
