I know that any beauty talk right now may be a sensitive subject because we're being quarantined, but I have some good news so hear me out. If you're a member of the #NailSwag Gang you might be in your feelings since nail shops are closed and you're stuck in the house with unsightly nails after removing gel, acrylic, or SNS but don't fret! I'm here to convince you to add a few press on nail kits to your cart ASAP so you can get back to feeling yourself again!
I've been a press on nails lover forever and after wearing them for so long I consider myself Le PressOn Connoisseur. That's why I did all of the work to bring you the top five places to shop for the best press ons and I'm sharing why you should be wearing them right now!
These nails are in the #1 spot for a reason! I have tried quite a few different press on brands and after recently being introduced to this black owned company, I'm convinced that they are the best. The nail quality is superb and the nail prep kit is unmatched. The kit comes with a nail file, a buffer, an alcohol prep pad, nail glue, adhesive tabs, a cuticle stick, and a nail clipper! These nails are durable, the glue holds very well, and the nails are reusable. Another perk? Mod Vanity has multiple nail styles and lengths and you can customize the size and fit. (I'm wearing size medium.) Check out my nail gallery for full deets and shop via the link below!
The Kiss Products brand has been around for a long time. I think these are the first press ons that I have ever worn. Kiss Glue-on Nails (some come with adhesive tabs) are durable and last me about a week before I feel like they need to be removed. Usually, it's one or two nails that can be easily glued back on but if I want to give my natural nails a break I remove them completely. Kiss Nails can be found in drugstores and beauty stores like Walmart, Walgreens Ulta, Rite Aid, Kroger, etc. So while you're out getting your essentials, browse the beauty section and pick up a nail kit! You can also shop the Kiss USA site directly via the link below.
If you're in a hurry, don't have much time to spare and need some cute last minute nails, then Impress Nails were made for you. It takes me all of 10 minutes to apply these nails. Impress is a sub-company of Kiss Products and someone had the genius idea to make these nails with SuperHold adhesive already on the nails so there's no need for glue. Impress Nails has a vast array of colors, lengths, styles, and designs and they recently launched new one's like the almond shape that I'm wearing in the picture above. They last about the same amount of time as the glue on nails but are much easier to apply. You can also shop these nails at beauty and drugstores or via the link below. P.S. There are a few styles on sale on Ulta's website so snag them while you can!
This is a fairly new brand to me but they've been around for a few years now. I learned about Static Nails from an Instagram ad and as I did my research I discovered that these nails are vegan and cruelty-free, as well as reusable. Their shape and style selection is a bit more classic but if that's your style do you boo! One of the perks of the Static Nail brand is that their glue is a non-damaging, bonds like acrylic and dissolves as time passes. I haven't used them yet so I can only say that they have rave reviews and the nails are the same quality as most of the nails that I have already tried but I wanted to share them for anyone looking for a healthy alternative and give another reusable option.

I absolutely love Sinful Colors nail polish. It's inexpensive and applies well. So when I came across their press on nails in Walmart I knew I had to grab a pair. These are 2-D and 3-D nails that have intricate designs like glitter, chains, pearls, and roses. So they will give you the salon look with all the bells and whistles for less than $10. These also come with a basic nail kit and the option to apply them with adhesive tabs or glue. I was only able to find a few styles and one shape so if you're interested, I suggest grabbing them online or checking to see if your local Walmart has them in stock before they sell out! Multiple styles can be found using each link below.
Press on nails have saved my fashionable life on numerous occasions; especially when I needed a quick beauty fix. The last time I ran to the drugstore to grab a pair was a few hours before I attended a semi formal event. No one could tell they were press ons and they were sure I paid at a pretty penny to have them done. They literally pulled my look together!
I wear press on nails because they are affordable, I like to change colors and styles frequently, and I can pop them on and off without damaging my natural nails. Even if you love your salon nails, it won't hurt to try press ons once or twice especially while quarantined. I'm not saying to give them up completely, I'm just saying this is a temporary alternative to get you through this rough time or just to join the press on nail movement from this day forward because I promise you it's lit!
