For the eyelashes, believe it or not, I have had good success with ones from The Dollar Store.
Otherwise any drug store or Walmart should be able to supply a set. Apologies if I'm wrong, I'm assuming you're in the U.S.
Not sure about the nails but for the lashes on my TPE doll, I used Loctite Super Glue Gel Control. It is a quick dry "super glue" so be very careful of your fingers and where you place the lashes on the eyes.
I have no experience in gluing to silicone.
Stay calm and breathe, you'll be ok!  :thumb:

Lori is a YL head.

AdamEve,
Glad to help!

What I also found helpful was to apply the glue to the back of the lash with a toothpick.
Not much is needed and it gives you a little more control and less lumps for sure!
