I am a dedicated and loyal nail aficionado. But with the world in self-isolation mode, it was time for me to say goodbye to my acrylics since there seem to be no appointments in sight. Instead, I’ve opted for quick, press-on nail kits that I can switch up depending on my mood.

Nails can be as versatile as you want them to be. You can wear them long or short, square or coffin, with a design or the most simple French tips. Honestly, nail art is such an understated beauty accessory we can all tap into. But if you’re not into sitting down for hours at the nail shop, press-on nails may be right up your alley.

When it comes to nails, it’s important to prep, prep, prep. “Always prep your natural nails with the enclosed Prep Pad to remove any oil and other debris as well as pushing back your cuticles with the wood stick,” Impressnails nail experts wrote on the site.

“Be sure to use the right size nails. If you are in between nail sizes or aren’t sure which size to use, choose the smaller size for lasting wear and a more natural look. Press down on the nail for at least 15 seconds before moving onto the next nail and wait an hour after application to file nails (avoid cutting) or to apply hand lotion or cuticle oil.”

Whether you’re in desperate need of a manicure or just looking for a nice temporary addition to your beauty routine, check out these press-on nail kits that are super chic and under $20. Also if you need more inspiration, feel free to shop around on Ulta’s nail page. Trust me, you won’t regret it.
