You know that feeling. Your nails look like you’ve been landscaping all day, but you don’t have the time to get to the spa or wait for a base coat, two color coats, and a top coat to dry (even quick dry top coats take time because you have to wait for the the other coats to dry before you apply it. Let me quote the prolific Sweet Brown, “Ain’t nobody got time for that!”).
I was making a mad dash to bed the other night because I had a big day ahead of me that started at 5:00 a.m. I knew if I tried to give myself a full mani, that I’d end up smudging all of my nails in my sheets. What’s a girl to do?! Sitting in my mani box was the answer, a package of press-on nails that I got from ImPRESS Press-On Manicure by Broadway Nails some months earlier in NYC. I know what you’re thinking: “Press-on nails? That’s so 1992.” I promise you, these look better and feel sturdier than the ones I used to play dress-up with as a little beauty queen wannabe. So far, I like them better than nail stickers because they don’t bubble and the application was quick and easy — prep, peel, stick. Voila!
I think this will be my summer mani go-to. I’ll spend the time I would have spent on my nails at the pool. Oh, and it’s only about $6, so it definitely beats a pricey salon visit.
