Quick (seriously) manicure.

I don't know about you but when I think "Press on nails" I flashback to grade/middle school and sleepovers. Boy have these things sure my opinion.

  I have a slight obsession with manicures. I used to think I needed help but after reading Lauren Conrad's Beauty book and learning that she does her nails just about every other day I felt better about my addiction.  Anyone who knows me knows that I change my purses almost with every outfit so it seems only fitting that I like my nails to at least somewhat coordinate with my looks.  I am one those people that will pull out the entire outfit (sometimes putting it on the night before to ensure it looks right) for me next days....ok, so that was slightly embarrassing to admit.

  Anyway...getting way off topic. I love painting my nails but sometimes I just don't want to take the time to do it. I came across these press on nails and thought well...not to much to lose (I had coupons making them nearly free).

You can find them most anywhere
I must say these things are sure exceeding my expectations.  They were super easy to I apply. Just prep the nail with the prep pad (I filed, smoothed, and removed my cuticles as well) peel backing and apply.  Yes, seriously that easy. It took me maybe 20-30 minutes start to finish.

Now for the hold up...I was expecting to find nails floating around the house popping off every 5 seconds but nope.  I have three boys and a household to keep up and haven't lost a nail. They look great and are short enough to function well.  

These would be great also if your looking for a different or classy look for an event or date night (since it is the season of holiday parties). There are plenty of great styles to choose from.  My tip...get these and spare the salon money for a better dress, fancier shoes or maybe another accessory.  
The finished look...not bad, eh?


  1. What kind of price range are these press on nails? Have you seen them in designs or just a solid color?

    1. The in-store prices are around $7.00 but there are usually coupons that allow for $1.00-$2.00 off and when they are on sale it's a steal. If you live near a Walgreens give them a try. The cosmetic counter keeps coupons behind the counter for customers, just ask! :-)
