No chips or smudges here.

I've never been much of an at-home manicure person. But the pandemic forced me to change much of my beauty routine. Instead of painting my nails with polish, I've gravitated toward press-on nails.

Of course, press-on nails aren't perfect. The glue can be messy and it took me a few tries to get the hang of application. Plus, they will pop off if you're not careful. (I recommend getting someone else to do the dishes while you're wearing them.)

Although they do have lots of benefits. They allow me to experiment with fun nail art without damaging my nails. Hello, leopard and cow prints. They're also smudge-proof with virtually no downtime. They let me rock longer nails and prevent me from biting my real nails.

Press-on nails are a great option for special occasions. You know, when you want your nails to look nice for one night, but don't necessarily want to shell out for a pricey gel mani.

I recently attended my first polo match and I knew I couldn't go with bare nails. So before heading out the door, I put on these matte blush press-on nails with a sparkly accent nail. Instead of glue, these nails have adhesive tabs so application and removal are both a breeze.
