I finally gave press on nails a try after years of acrylics, natural, shellac, sticker polish, gel, you name it.
There was always something about each of the methods that I did not like. For example, acyrlics always turned dirty or yellow, shellac stayed nice for a while, but still turned a bit dirty looking over time. Also, if the nail stylist messed even one little thing up there was no fixing it without removing the polish. Taking them off was much more difficult than advertised.
I was in Target and saw these nails:
I figured, I may as well give them a try. I put them on 4 days ago (took me maybe 10 minutes max), and I am so happy with my decision. This will save me so much money going forward, and I will be satisfied with the look for much longer. It bugs me that I didn't figure this out all the years while I was a cheerleader ambassador for Washington Redskins. We had to wear french manicure to all the games, and I spent way too much time in the nail salon. Now I don't have to (except for pedicures of course).
Here is what the nails look like when on:
You can get them at any drugstore. They cost around $5. You may even be able to use the same box for two different sets (depending on your size). The lasting power seems amazing as long as put on correctly. So far I have had mine on for 4 days, and they are still just as clean and shiny as they were the first day.
I haven't tried other brands, but I can imagine they are all great. What makes this set very interesting is that the bottom of the nails have moons...which makes them look even more natural.
I have not tried taking them off yet, but i have a feeling the process won't be as difficult as shellac or gel. I will keep you posted!!
If you want your nails to look beautiful but want to save your money (for other amazing products/services), then please go get these!
