As an alternative to using glue to apply press-on nails, which can be messy and damage your nail beds, you may want to try adhering them with sticky double-sided nail tabs instead. How do they work? Made from a thick rubbery gel, they’re shaped to fit most fingernails and toenails and many sets provide a variety of sizes to accommodate different users. Once you apply them to your nail, you simply press your artificial nail on top and hold for about five to 10 seconds. This application may be able to last for up to a week, depending on your lifestyle. Ahead, shop the sets to add to your manicure kit.
