Missy Elliott said it best: “If you a fly gal, get your nails done!"
Manicures have always been a quintessential part of our beauty routine. Unfortunately, so has the grueling nail salon wait. Luckily, we can shave hours off a professional paint job with pretty press-on kits instead. There’s a bank of bold and beautiful options that actually look like the real thing and you don’t have to sacrifice a lot of money for them.
And unlike the UV lights your hands have to sit under for a gel set, press-ons are generally healthier for your digits. Instead of securing them with an acrylic, you can secure them with stickers or adhesive so they don’t damage your nail beds. In fact, a gang of our favorite celebs are able to switch out their manis so frequently because they depend on press-ons from their glam squad.
If you want to freshen up your fingertips like the A-list this season, peruse 20 poppin’ press-ons below.
