The newest nail trends like blush nails can be difficult to perfect on your own, which is why nail salons are so popular amongst nail art lovers.
With the new COVID-19 circuit-breaker measures in place, it probably means that you won’t be able to see your favourite manicurist for a while. But we know how great nails can also uplift our mood, particularly since most of us will be going sans makeup while we work from home.
Here’s the solution: we’ve rounded up 19 of the best press-on nails and nail wrap that make nail art easy and foolproof, anyone can do it at home.
