When you think of press on nails, you probably think of those pink plastic ones you’d wear as a little kid or the ever so common French tip versions found in pharmacies and local beauty supply stores. But the truth is, press on nails have come a very, very long way. These days more and more women are opting to go the press on route, due to the sheer convenience and affordability of them. Particularly in light of the current pandemic where many nail salons and beauty shops are still closed and the ones that have opened have strict social distancing policies, and hence availability has become an issue.
Many Instagram nail technicians have also jumped on board offering bespoke made to order press on nail kits in addition to ready to buy options and here are some of our faves!
Are you thinking about getting some press on nails? As always, there are pros and cons with most beauty products.
- They are affordable
- Easy application
- Stylish nails, quickly!
- Not as durable as other nail enhancement options
- Better for special occasions but not long term usage
- Glue/adhesive can cause damage to natural nails
With all that being said we still believe that press on nails are an excellent option to keep your hands looking glam!
