Why Press on Nails are a Great Option
The simplest and easiest form of a manicure. Why sit and waste over an hour at the nail salon and splurge in the hundreds when you can opt for reusable stick on nails! There are so many options when it comes to length, style and patterns.
The great thing is that the majority of them come in sizes with extras so you’re sure to find the perfect one that fits your nail bed. Then, some have adhesive already on the back so you can quickly stick them on. So ideal for special occasions like weddings and birthdays but then need to have them off for your office job!
Finally, they’re great because they give you the chance to experiment. We’re talking opting for some sparkle or animal print. Something you may not want to spend that much money on and commit to in the nail salon, you can try with stick-ons.
