My beauty routine is a combination of a little department store and a little drugstore. Under my $64 pumpkin seed brightening serum, open my gym bag, and youll discover a pack of Neutrogena makeup remover wipes. I am not making any apologies for it. One of my biggest fears with beauty elites is the assumption that press-on nails are somehow a substitute for acrylics or a gel manicure.
Press-ons aren't exactly deserved, although they do save you time. Why spend one to two hours in a salon chair when you can get out the door in minutes or less? They're also less expensive and pre-painted, allowing you to avoid drying time or damage.
Weve curated a list that includes plenty of sleek designs, from the most basic to the most extravagant. But before that, here are three quick recommendations for application:
Apply a base coat. Before glueing or sticking on your press-on nails, protect your nail beds by painting them with a strong base coat.
Remove moisture.We love our cuticle oils as much as the next person, but oils, lotions, or creams can reduce the strength of nail adhesive. Before applying your press-ons, make sure your nail beds are dry and clean by wiping them thoroughly clean with a nail polish remover.
Remove the press-ons carefully. Instead of pulling them off and potentially causing damage to your natural nails, soak them in warm water first, or massage oil along the cuticles to less easily remove them.
