An affordable option for material girls.

Press-ons are a great way to save money, but finding the best quality can be difficult. KISS offers a wide range of shapes and designs. Could this brand be it?

Press-on nails are a quick and easy way to get your nail fix without the hassle and expense of going to the salon or buying a DIY kit on Amazon and learning to do it yourself.

KISS provides a wide range of durable press-ons to choose from, with collections that include jelly, seasonal, and nude nails offered in 14 different sizes within a single pack. Application may be a little tedious at first, but it beats having to go and sit at a salon for a few hours.

Each set of nails is only available at a certain length and shape. While there is a lack of choice in that aspect, the specific length and shape only complement the designs of the nails. KISS also provides clear nails and regular french tips that people can easily customize.

The durability of KISS press-ons may be one of the brand’s most notable features. It is difficult to break or bend a nail, even when doing some heavy lifting or having to open things with them. If anything, they will start falling off after about a week, which is the estimated amount of time they will last, as stated on the package. KISS uses acrylic-infused technology to make their nails more durable, but this is only available for the Acrylic French Nude collection.

KISS press-ons can be bought at Ulta, Target, Walgreens, Walmart, and CVS. It is essential to note that not all sets are available at these stores, so it is best to browse the KISS website for more nail designs. Each pack, no matter how extravagant, is less than $15, with prices varying according to the sophistication of the style. No longer will you have to find a good salon or pay at least $30 for plain nails.

Although you would lack the stylistic choices with your imagination at a salon or with a DIY kit, the substantial array of beautiful, quality nails that KISS offers and the affordable prices heavily outweigh that issue.
