I've been able to keep fake nails on longer, but they seem to start to peel and lift up sooner than I think they should and do pop off. Unfortunately, I can't afford to maintain fakes, but that's what I would do if I could. I had better success with sculpted nails over gluing tips on, but nobody does that anymore.
My nails must be oily too. Any polish just peels off in sheets. People say to use certain base coats, etc., but that's useless because it just peels off. An extra layer won't change a thing, I've tried. I thought of trying that home gel kit thinking I could get better results, but now I'm rethinking that if you didn't have any success.
I wish there was a solution. I've tried using alcohol and polish remover to really dry up the nail bed to no avail and doing several thin, thin coats which seems to help, but time consuming, and the next thing you know, half the polish strips off.
I'm going to follow this post for a miracle!
