Remember press-on nails? Definitely a plank on my bridge from tween to teen, but I outgrew them quickly. They were terribly designed. Why were Lee and Kiss obsessed with Pepto pink nail beds and boring French manicures? I’m a huge nail art junkie so that latter issue was definitely a deal breaker. Not to mention, each nail would pop off at only the behest of a brisk wind.

Fresh Prince

Then, there was my brief stint with acrylicholism in college. Acrylic nails looked great but their maintenance was time consuming and expensive. Within a month, my natural nails were stripped thinner than a vegan. Clearly, I figured, there was no way to sport artificial nails without damaging my natural nails, sacrificing my style, and draining my wallet.

I was wrong. Enter Static Nails.

My Experience with Static Nails

Static Nails

For half the price of acrylic nails, I purchased a Static Nails kit at this year’s Makeup Show. They are the creators of the world’s first Reusable, Paintable, and Shapeable™ pop-on manicure. Perfectly shaped and individually designed, avec Swarovski® crystals no less, my nails have, so far, withstood a week’s worth of dishwashing/typing/floor scrubbing/laundry duty and they still look great!

Remind me again why I stopped wearing faux nails?

Applying a full set took only 20 minutes. C’mon! Does it get any better than that? Answer: Nope. It doesn’t.

In fact, I love them so much that I contacted Static Nails and requested an exclusive discount for all you lovely readers. They agreed!
