Static Nails All-in-One Pop-On Manicure
If you grew up in the ’80s, you no doubt remember Lee Press-On Nails…the reusable fake nails that you could affix to your real nail beds with adhesive strips. They didn’t last long and anytime you applied the tiniest but of pressure, like opening a soda can, pop went the Lee Press-On Nail, flying across the room. Static Nails All-in-One Pop-On Manicure is not a retread of the concept. It’s a modern, updated way to do “pop-on” nails. Statics can be used, re-used, shaped, and customized. The brand promises that the nails can be worn up to 18 days or re-applied six separate times for shorter periods.
You can even paint them and remove the polish to reveal the original color. So these are versatile and stand up to life as we know it. You will have to play with them to see what works and for how long. There are matte and holographic styles, so you have plenty of choices. If you have the time or inclination, you can bring the box to your nail technician and have them give you a fun, faux mani. That’s what I did. It was like a short-term fling; fun while it lasted!
