  1. but wouldn’t that just move around and make your fingers sticky i mean does it get hard or stay soft i think if it stays soft it wouldn’t serve any purpose i don’t want to insult anyone it is a good idea in theory but i don’t see the good in it just my opinion

    • Hiya! Yes indeed, it gets hard after 24, no fear :) It turns into a substance like rubber.

  2. I want to try them but first I have a question can u remove them like if I but one and I d not want it no more can I move it easy or it stay there permanently
