One of the things we miss about the pre-pandemic life is regular mani-pedi sessions at our favorite nail salons. Getting seated and taken care of by nail technicians, picking out the right colors, even the calming scent of the place itself is something we can't help but yearn for. However, we found the perfect solution to having Instagrammable nails while staying at home: Press-on nails! These ones in particular follow the styles of those we see from our favorite Korean stars, so they will help you in achieving your K-beauty dreams!
Here's a list of online shops on Instagram, where you can purchase Korean-inspired press-on nails:
1. Eli Nails
Calling all Blinks! This local IG shop has a collection inspired by BLACKPINK and Selena Gomez’s bop "Ice Cream"—it features creamy pastel hues with gems all over the press-on nails. Perfect when you want to go chillin’, chillin’ this summer!
They also have these pretty dry flower nails that we can't wait to get our hands on *winks*:
If you’re into the dainty aesthetic, you have to check out this faux nail set from pressnpolish. You can choose between two light-colored finishes that both showcase pretty daisies.
3. Her Tribe
Another cool thing that has come up recently is customized press-on nails. Her Tribe accepts personalized collections that can be based on which vibe you want to sport. You have to see this doggo set that features different pics of their customer’s pup!
This surfer girl set is also perfect for summer:
4. Classy Fancy Nails
If you’re looking for a classic mani, stop by Classy Fancy Nails’ Instagram feed and choose from their wide selection. Their blush set in particular contains 24 nails with 10 sizes, and it fits different nail sizes. It also includes nail glue, prep pad, nail file, cuticle stick, and free adhesive tabs! Super sulit because they’re reusable!
One thing we see all over our feeds are “baddie” nails, a.k.a. claw-like press-ons that are hard to miss. You can get them from Kuko.ph for Php 199 and they last for three weeks. If you’re scared to jump into the claw press-on trend, you can also choose from their three lengths: long, mid, and short.
6. Nails by Nica
Are you a fan of animal prints? Sport these sets from Nails by Nica! They have cute cow-print and leopard print press-ons that will allow you to jump on the hype.
7. Glossing Nails
As K-culture fans, we know how much Koreans love designer stuff—from shoes to bags, they love their monogrammed items. But did you know that you can add them to your nails, too? Try on these Fendi claws from Glossing Nails worth Php 350 for a super luxurious ~*lewk*~!
8. Nails by K
Girls who regularly get mani-pedis know that the french tip never goes out of style. Too lazy to paint those white stripes on your own? Opt for Nails by K's press-ons as they are sturdy and will probably last you for a long time!
