Manicures are a fool-proof way to express your mood and creativity. But if you want to try out the latest nail art trends and styles, you either need to be an at-home nail expert or spend the money on a professional! So, what can you do when neither salon nail services nor at-home manicures serve you? Invest in press-on nails! Surprisingly, press-on nails are long-lasting, easy to apply, mess-free, and available in a variety of colors, designs, and shapes.
Now, by no means are press-on nails new; they’ve just recently had a face-lift. They can now last for up to two weeks, they are durable, and they won’t cause harm to your natural nail plates. All you need to do is prep your nails, measure your press-ons, and apply with your nail adhesive. Here are some of our favorite press-on-nail brands (plus our top picks) for you to get started!
When many people think of press-on nails, they most certainly think of imPRESS, known for its innovative press-on nails that can be achieved in minutes. The brand’s PureFit technology and patented Dual-Layer Adhesive system allow nails to be slim and comfortable and applied easily – no glue required! The nails are also chip-proof, smudge-proof, and dry in no time.
Static Nails is devoted to creating vegan, cruelty-free “pop-on” nails in chic, trending designs that are long-lasting and practically indistinguishable from a salon manicure. You can reshape them, paint over them, and even remove and reapply them if desired!
Static Nails gives you all the tools you need in its press-on kits for a successful manicure, including 24 nails in 12 sizes, a non-damaging nail adhesive, a buffer, a file, and instructions.
Clutch Nails partners with some of the industry’s best nail art experts to create endless series of fun, vibrant, and eccentric nails to express your wild side. The nails can be cut, shaped, and filed like regular nails, and they last anywhere in between one to two weeks. Clutch Nails also provides a nail adhesive to keep your set in place.
Olive and June has mastered its line of nail polishes, so it only makes sense that it branched out into the world of press-on nails. Each Instant Mani kit includes 42 nails in 21 sizes, non-damaging glue, a cuticle pusher, a two-in-one file and buffer, and a prep pad. The best part? All nails are made from 94% post-consumer recycled materials.
