DIY At Home Salon Nails

Can I tell you guys a secret? I don't get my nails done at the salon. 

I've never been huge on nail salon visits. Not that I have anything against them. It's just I get bored easily with my nails, and it would be a waste of money for a fresh set only to want them removed after a week or so. Instead, I found that doing my own nails at home has not only saved me money but also gives me that fresh salon look I'm going for. 

Yes. These are press-on nails. 

Remember back in the day when you'd get roasted for wearing press-on nails instead of going to the salons to get your nails professionally done? Well, times have changed. Kiss has created a line of Press-on nails that are pre-designed nails just for your convenience. 

I personally like my nails short, but the Kiss brand offers such a wide variety. You can get them long, short, or medium. They offer coffin shape, stiletto, and my favorite...square. 

In the wake of COVID, press on nails became even more popular as nail salons were temporarily shut down and we ladies needed an alternative to keeping our nails manicured. 

What I like the most about these nails is how easy it is to apply them. 

It literally takes little to no time to put these on. They're beginner friendly and once you find your groove, you won't feel the need to pay $50-$60 when you can just do them yourselves. The package provides step by step directions on how to apply these nails and most kits include a nail file, multiple sizes to fit your nails, and nail glue. 

How To Apply

I like to begin by cutting my real nails very low, making sure my nail is clean, and pushing my cuticle back. 

From there, I find the nails within the set that will fit to my nails. When I find the correct size, it's super easy to find the match as each nail has a number on them. 

I personally like to use the nail file to the surface of my nails. It isn't necessary, but in my mind I feel it helps give the nail glue some friction to my real nails for a better stick. 

I take the nail glue applicator and apply it to the back of the press-on before firmly placing onto my nail. Hold for 10 seconds and move on to the next nail. 

Pretty simple!

Where To Buy

I've found these nails in Walgreens, Walmart, Target, Sally's, and my local beauty supply store. However, I've noticed that Amazon tends to offer more designs as well as the Kiss website

I've been able to make these nails last at minimal 10 days before the nail glue begins to wear off. However, I've had them on for a good two weeks with proper care. 

Give these nails a try and tell me what you think!
