If there’s one thing that Bronx babes like me are missing while spending all this time indoors is a damn manicure. Prior to the quarantine, girls in the hood knew what time it was when the weekend hit. But since I can’t get a fresh set at my usual nail lady, Kiss press-on nails are what’s saving me right now.
First world problem, I know. But with everything under the sun stressing me, a Black bisexual, out in this time, I can give me, myself and I a little TLC. The Kiss press-on nails are a staple in nearly every beauty supply store if you’ve ever stepped in one. Plus, most times you won’t spend more than $10 for a full set — and I’ve easily spent $100 on tips in the salon.
Not to mention, I’m lazy. I looooovvvveee painting my nails just as much as the next queer. However, I don’t have the time or the patience to become Nail Sunny overnight, so Kiss press-on nails come in handy, doing the imagining (and the actual work of looking cute) for me.
I’ve compiled a list of what I believe to be the 10 chicest press on nails from the Kiss brand. From the VSCO girl-inspired nails from Rebecca Minkoff (which are perfect for summer) to the simpler lengthy ballerina nails you see all over Pinterest, I’ve plucked a set of claws for every nail enthusiast’s style. Hopefully, ya dig. Check out my favorite picks below!
