Nail Fraud Press-On Nail Art Review

Help! I'm About to Commit Nail Fraud

As a kid, I was obsessed with Lee Press-On Nails. After months of being wheedled, my mother caved and bought a box. My 10-year-old self was giddy, then disappointed by the realization that Mom was right: they really did not stay put, and my dreams fell away with every fake French tip.

Fast-forward a couple of decades, and I'm playing around with Nail Fraud ($10). Similar concept, much better results. Like the Minx one-use manicure, Nail Fraud is essentially a sheet of thin, pre-cut nail stickers. You choose from a variety of patterns, press the appliques onto clean nails, then shape them with an enclosed emory board. The concept is a little goofy, but you know what? They work, and it's much easier to use than the old press-ons of the past.

These are super cute, especially for short nails!

They're supposed to last "up to a week." I'm on day two and haven't had any peeling issues yet. You can remove them by peeling them off or using nail polish remover, but I'd go with the former method.

Like them but also wondering how long do they last and how easy are they to remove?

I tried the ones from Sephora and I was very disapointed. They were difficult to cover the entire nail wirhout it looking..well like a sticker. This trend might be better suited for tweens and teens.
