The Press On Nail

Press on nails have been around for years. It’s the old school way of adding length to your nails without adding acrylics, gels or powders. It was instant long nail gratification for many women…add nails, polish and viola, you had 10 perfect nails.

Fast forward to nails of today and the press on nail has evolved into a wanted and desirable product. They come in many nail colors as well as some with stones and nail art. You can have short, long, round, square and even stiletto. They can be found in drug stores, beauty supply stores and department stores. Designers have even cashed in on the craze by creating their own, custom nail art press on nails. NYFW models have seen their share of press on nails. It is the easiest and fastest way to obtain the desired nail looks for the runway shows. But the best reason is, there is no drying time! No models smudging their nails or destroying them because they forgot they were wet. The only con would be, one nail falling off so properly securing the nail is important. Some of the press on’s come with adhesive already attached, you just have to find the size and put it on your nail. Others require nail glue or nail tape

China Glaze has great nail art press on nails. Nail glue is required.

Designer Christian Siriano collaborated with impress press on and created jeweled and abstract nail art

Kiss nails come with and without self glue but in all shapes and length. This fantasy pack is all you need for a quick night on the town.

You can find these nails at CVS or Walgreens. So the next time you are in a hurry and need a nail fix, these can be your solution.
