Nothing beats going to the nail salon and getting a manicure done by a professional — you leave the salon feeling like a million bucks. But, when you can't get to one, or don't want to make the trip, an at-home manicure can do the trick. The only caveat to you can't length to your natural nails with just regular old nail polish. To achieve the look of an acrylic manicure at home, you need fake nails.
Press-on nails have come a long way in recent years. There's far more than just the one-shape, one-style varieties that you'd find at the drugstore with your mom. I've raved about fake press-on nails over and over again, but that's because I rely on the DIY nail hack to save me whenever I'm in desperate need of a mani. They come in so many different shapes, designs, patterns to match the latest trends. I've even had people ask me where I got my nails done, only to tell them that I applied them the night before at my kitchen table.
Whether you go with the traditional adhesive, press-on nails or step it up a notch with the glue-on style, fake nail sets are a fool-proof way to give yourself a great manicure from home — especially if you have trouble painting and creating nail art designs on yourself. They only take a matter of minutes to secure into place and can last for days, up to a week or so, depending on how hard you are on them — similar to a regular manicure.
From affordable options under $10 to pricier alternatives for an ultra-luxe-looking manicure, we rounded up the best press-on nails for you to shop, ahead.
