Okay, press-on nails are gross and trashy and a little creepy and vaguely softcore porny. But secretly they are also kind of awesome. I mean, how else can you sit down and in fifteen minutes have a complete set of fully done digits that look like this?
These are Chinese “Sweety” press-ons clearly meant for children (fortunately I have tiny baby hands, so I was able to make them work). I picked them up for 99¢ at one of my favorite North Long Beach bodegas, and they definitely fulfill my lazy/tacky/cute fingernail requirements. I got a set in yellow as well:
Like, what? They’re so weird and cute and ridiculous and cheap, I just couldn’t resist them.
