I don't know about you, but I have a hard time keeping polish on my nails. It may be because I'm constantly typing, but as soon as I have one chip, I pick away at the rest of it. Therefore, I end up getting manicures weekly and polish changes in between, which adds up to about $25 on my real nails per week!
Recently, I came across the Runway Collection by Revlon, which (believe it or not) are natural looking press-ons that are already painted with subtle designs. I know you're probably thinking... press-ons? Believe me when I tell you they're not like the old school ones you used to try on when you were young.
I really like them because they're short, not rounded or square, but somewhere in between and the nail beds are naturally curved so they look real when they're on. The first time I wore them was two weeks ago to my friends wedding. I wasn't planning on it, but not surprisingly, my manicure chipped and they were my rescue. They're only $8 per pack and last up to ten days. Check them out.
