Why Press On Nails Are Better Than Acrylics

Are you tired of spending hours at the nail salon, only to have your acrylics chip, break, or fade within days of getting them done? Say goodbye to those struggles and hello to the world of press on nails!

Press on nails have been gaining popularity in recent years, and for good reason. Not only are they more affordable than traditional acrylics, but they are also easier to apply and remove, less damaging to your natural nails, and more versatile in terms of style.

Easy Application

The application process is a breeze. All you need is our set of press ons, some nail glue or adhesive tabs, and a little bit of time. Simply apply the glue or tabs to your natural nail, press the press on nail onto your finger, and voila! You have a set of flawless nails that can last up to two to three weeks.

Easy Removal

One of the biggest advantages of press on nails over acrylics is their easy removal process. Acrylic nails require a trip to the salon, soaking in acetone, and grinding of the nail bed, which can be time-consuming and damaging to natural nails. In contrast, press on nails can be easily removed by gently peeling them off or using a non-acetone nail polish remover. This means you can switch up your nail look more frequently without the hassle and potential damage to your natural nails.

Less Damage to Natural Nails

Another major benefit of press-on nails is that they are less damaging to your natural nails. Acrylics require a lot of filing and buffing to create a surface that the acrylic can adhere to, which can weaken and thin out your natural nails over time. Press ons, on the other hand, don't require such prep work, so you can avoid the damage and keep your nails healthy and strong.

Versatility in Style

But what about style? Don't worry, press on nails have got you covered there too. With a wide range of designs, colours, and patterns to choose from, you can switch up your look as often as you like. Feeling bold and sassy? Try a set of neon pink press ons. Want something more subdued? Opt for a classic French manicure or a set of matte black nails. With press ons, the possibilities are endless and you've got the freedom to switch things up whenever you want!


And let's not forget about affordability. Acrylics can cost anywhere from $40 to $100, depending on where you go and what design you choose. Press on nails, on the other hand, are a fraction of the cost, and can be re-used over and over again. This means you can change up your nails more frequently without worrying about breaking the bank.


With the right application and care, press ons can last up to two to three weeks. Plus, they are easily replaceable if one or two nails fall off. Simply keep a spare set of glue or adhesive tabs in your purse or makeup bag and you'll always be ready for a quick touch-up.
