With the start of pandemic and nail salons closing due to restriction orders, there came the hype over press on nails — hey, who wants to spend time AND crazy amount of money on nail appointments anyway?
Press on nails are a great alternative to acrylic nails while maintaining the aesthetic and durability of salon quality set with half the time and money spent. For example, KooPink’s press on nail sets start with the price range of just $14 but with over 50+ available designs, lengths, and shapes. The designs range from simple and basic one shade of color nails to cow and even fire print nails. So what are the three main reasons people are obsessing over press on nails?
1. Save Money & Time
You probably already guessed it. Yes, press on nails indeed save you A LOT of money and time. Going to a nail salon appointment is not only expensive but takes forever. Nail salon appointments are at least $25 and can range up to $100 or more depending on your nail design and service. Press on nails, however, can be as inexpensive as $10 — that can be found in drug stores. Applying press on nails also take as short as five minutes since you’re simply sticking them on with a jelly type sticker or liquid glue.
2. Super Flexible
Do you ever get bored of your acrylic nails after getting them done in a week or two? Or you need to remove them because your work or daily routine hinders you from having long nails? Not only is it extremely hard to take off acrylic nails on your own smoothly without potentially damaging your natural nails but it is also expensive and time-consuming. This is where press on nails come in. As easy as pressing them on for an instant elevation of your look, it’s also extremely easy to remove press on nails. You can also wear them for any period of time that you desire. To remove them, you simply soak them under warm soapy water until the edges of the fake nails start to peel off. You may experience glue residue on your nails but this can be easily removed with acetone or soap water. Ta-da, you’ve removed your nails under ten minutes with minimum effort and time.
3. Minimum Damage
Press on nails are also less damaging to your nails than acrylics. As long as you are applying and removing them properly, they do almost no damage to your natural nails. You don’t have to worry about your nails thinning or chipping like they do after an acrylic set. All you have to worry about is the glue residue which again, can be easily removed with acetone.
These were just the three main reasons why press on nails might be a better option for you than a nail salon appointment. If you want to give it a try, go for it!
