The way we do beauty has changed a little in the last year or two. With the covid pandemic closing the likes of hair salons and nail shops, we've had to learn how to keep up appearances from the comfort of our own home. As well as covering roots with box dyes, we've also had to find a new way to rock a fresh set of nails. Whilst we’ve always championed false nails here at Cosmetify, they definitely became a saving grace for the beauty-obsessed and we’re glad that they’re finally getting the recognition they deserve.

Press-on nails are the cheap, easy and fast way to transform your fingertips from shabby to chic. Can’t get a salon appointment? Want to give nails a break from gels and acrylics? Got last minute plans and a week-old manicure? Arriving in every shape, length and finish, plus painted with your favorite colors, designs and nail art, false nails provide all that you need to give yourself an impressive DIY mani’ at home.

This is one of the trends we'd love to stick around post-lockdowns, so we've rounded up the best press-on nails for you to enjoy at home.
