It feels like every time I go to the salon for a manicure, my nail polish chips almost immediately. It's pretty frustrating, which is why I've basically given up wasting money on getting my nails done professionally. And while gel manis definitely last, they're expensive and leave my nails feeling brittle and dry, so they're not something I like to get regularly.

Enter: press-on nails. There are tons of designs to choose from, they're inexpensive, and they don't do harm to my nails. Besides, they're cool now — what's not to love? Here are the best press-on nails for a chip-free manicure that lasts.
