Looking for the perfect nails for a special event? Not wanting to spend a ton of money at a nail salon? The solution to this dilemma is stick-on nails. While extremely cute and authentic, stick-on nails are cost efficient and no one need ever know the difference!

There are two general types of stick-ons: those that use adhesive and those that use glue. Personally, my favorite brand of stick-on nails is “impress.” This brand uses adhesive, so when you take them off your nails aren’t damaged. The brands that use glue can damage nails and be difficult to remove.

The biggest perk of stick-on nails is the price. Found at almost every multi-purpose retailer such as Target, Walgreens, CVS, Walmart, etc, this beauty hack ranges in price from $5.99 to $7.99, depending on the store and specific brand.

With such a low cost for something that looks like the real-deal, stick-on nails are an essential product to add to your list of beauty tools. Even if you are the type to get your nails done every week at the salon, I highly recommend trying stick-on nails just once, or keeping around for emergencies!

If you’re not wanting to spend a ton of money at a salon for a product that will ruin your natural nails, stick-on nails are the way to go for any special event or even just every day-wear.
