Nineties kids know that your nails weren't finished until you pressed on butterfly stickers or colorful gem decals to your still-drying polish. Nail-art stickers have been trending for a few years now — thank you, style gods — but if you don't have the time or patience to carefully apply tiny stickers to each nail, that's OK. Nail wraps have returned.
You can consider these the cooler older sibling to nail decals, originally developed in the early '80s. Nail wraps easily cover your entire nail bed like a nail polish would, giving you a professional-looking manicure in minutes. Unlike press-on nails, which have a hard outer shell, or acrylic nails that must be glued on, nail wraps are actually nail-size stickers that attach to the entire length of your nail and fit snugger than a coat of paint. They come in multiple size options, so you choose the best fit for each nail, then trim or file to fit. The best part? They don't look like stickers — nail wraps look like a salon-quality manicure that is 100 times easier to remove when you're ready for a change.
Because nail wraps have been gaining steam lately, there are more options on the market than ever before. Choose different colors, patterns, and designs — many of which last up to two weeks. To help you find the most natural-looking fits, we've rounded up the best nail wraps on the market in the slides ahead.
