After leaving the nail salon, one is always constantly afraid of smudging or chipping one’s set of carefully paid-for polished tips. Trepidation lurks when opening wallets, unbuttoning skirts, or even unsealing a Ziploc bag; one must ask, are chic nails worth the high cost of both salon prices and restricted use of our own fingernails? A new product, Nail Fraud, offers a user-friendly alternative to polish and gaudy acrylics. Their stick-on nails are decal-like, and feature styles such as plaids, peacock feathers, flowers, fabric patterns, and even a hundred dollar bill print (recently sported by Rihanna).
These Nail Frauds are durable chip-proof, smudge-proof, and easy to use: just stick on the decal and use the included emery board to file away the excess “sticker.” Each kit comes with a two sets of twenty nails, an emery board, and a makeup bag, and for $12 the manicure is cheaper and longer lasting than your average salon manicure. Nails can constantly be pretty, patterned, flawless, and fully functional. Pair the Finger Plumes set of peacock nails with skinny jeans, a tee, and sneakers to add a dark rock vibe to your look; or wear the Wallflower-NOT nails with a breezy sundress to channel hippie chic while easing your summer clothes into fall weather. No unintelligible salon-lady judgments + perfect and easy nails = bold and fashion forward nails 24/7.
