If you told me when the clock struck midnight this past New Year’s that, come Spring, I’d be spending my days sitting on my couch, required to stay away from people and applying press-on nails, I would have asked you to share the postal code for the planet you just flew in from.
Yet, here we are.
The days are long, salons are closed and self-care has never been more important.
Some backstory: I received a mailing of press-on nails sometime back in February and, like any true ’80s kid, I swiftly dismissed it.
Fast-forward to the present: A friend of mine posted a shot on Instagram—sporting some press-on nails during the very real time period called now—and I was intrigued.
They looked polished (no pun intended), as good as any nail-art I’ve ever seen, and she swore they were simple to use.
I was ready to take the plunge.
So was Rebecca Minkoff, the utterly chic New York–based designer who has worked with KISS—her latest business partner and long-time leader in the at-home nail space—for several fashion weeks. As Minkoff told us, “both brands value making women look beautiful but, more importantly, feel beautiful, so when imPRESS approached me for a limited-edition collection, I didn’t hesitate.”
And hesitate she didn’t. Last week, she helped launch the Rebecca Minkoff X imPRESS Press-On Manicure Limited Edition Collection, and it’s legitimately good and—serendipitously—perfectly timed.
“This partnership is happening when women are looking for easy, at-home manicures, at an accessible price,” Minkoff exclusively shared. “I think we can all agree our nails have seen better days and these seven exclusive designs are so fun and bright bringing a little joy into your day.”
So do they work? Definitely. I consider myself a minimalist when it comes to anything nail-related and even I can pull them off (and, equally important, figure out how to apply them).
There’s no glue, no hassle and, best of all, you can sit on your couch and have a few minutes of meditation via an at-home manicure.
