Best Press-On Nails for a Chip-Free Manicure

It feels like every time I go to the nail salon for a manicure, my nail polish chips almost immediately. It’s pretty frustrating, which is why I’ve basically given up on wasting money getting my nails done professionally. While gel manicures definitely last, they’re expensive and leave my nails feeling brittle and dry, so they’re not something I like to get on a regular basis.
Enter: press on the nails. There are tons of designs to choose from, they’re cheap, and they don’t cause damage to my nails. Plus, they’re cool now – what’s not to love? Here are the best press-on manicures for a long-lasting, chip-free manicure.

Static Nails Reusable Pop-Up Manicure in Almond, $16
One thing that makes static nails stand out from the other press-on options is that they’re reusable, which makes you spend more money on them.

The nails are applied with a non-damaging glue and can be worn for days or even weeks at a time.
