ICYMI, press-on nails have gotten very good in recent history. What was long a stale product category with thick, uncomfortable (and let's be honest — dated) faux tips has now majorly glowed up to feature some of the dopest nail art around. Plus, with brands like Olive & June (who you already love, TBH) making press-ons with recycled plastic, there's nothing to *not* love about 'em.
While we still have big love for polish manicures, press-ons have a lot going for them: Not only do they take all of five minutes to do (and with zero dry time, no less), they're a much easier way to try intricate nail art designs — because we've all likely attempted to make our fingernails mini canvases only to have our fingers become a full-on Monet. (And we haven't even mentioned the value element: Press-on nails can easily be found at under $10 and can be reused if carefully removed.)
Ahead, we've assembled the best press-on nail kits to order for a flawless NYE mani moment — and beyond.
