I was an avid nail salon goer until I tried press-on nails during the pandemic. I never wore press-ons. To me, they always looked fake and cheap. I started looking into press-ons and did a lot of research on the best full-cover nail tips and polishes. After I gathered all the supplies and did a test run on myself and my friends, I opened my business.
If you’re thinking about making the switch to press-ons, check out these 5 benefits:
1. They’re affordable
Press-ons are much cheaper than going to the salon. You can easily switch up styles and lengths without paying a removal fee. You can get amazing designs that would easily cost more than $80.
2. You don’t have to waste time at a salon
You can save time by using press-ons. Press-ons can be applied in less than a half hour with full proper prep.
3. They’re perfect for one-time use or long-term use
There are multiple ways to apply press-ons and that’s what dictates how long they will last. Using sticky tabs will last a day or two. Using glue with proper prep can last up to 2 full weeks.
4. You’re not exposing yourself to harsh chemicals
A lot of nail salons have harsh chemicals floating through the air. Even with the use of proper ventilation, you’re still inhaling a lot of the chemicals. You’re also exposed to nail dust, acrylic dust, and so much more.
5. They don’t ruin your nails
If you remove press-ons the right way, they won’t damage your nails. Some customers even say wearing press-ons made their nails grow more and grow stronger.
