I don’t like fake nails. That’s probably a weird way to start out a post about fakes nails, but it’s the truth. I think they’re a hassle and not worth the money at all. So when I found the brand Static Nails, I was hesitant. Then my editor told me how in love she was with the brand, so I had to try them out. Static Nails was nice enough to send me a few pairs of reusable press on nails to try. Believe it or not, I’m obsessed.
My struggle with fake nails goes back to high school. It was a huge trend that everyone would get fake nails for homecoming. Naturally, I decided I would too.I ended up hating having long nails and tore them off before they fell off on their own. They tore my nails up so badly that I vowed never to get them ever again. Static Nails is not your average nail brand though.
According to the website, Static Nails creates trendy, pop-on nails that don’t do any damage. You can also easily clip and file the nails to fit the size you’d like. Basically, Static Nails is everything I love in fake nails and nothing that I hate. Plus the price is right. The sets are $14 to $16 each, which is a heck of a lot less than getting your nails done at a salon.
The brand was nice enough to send me two different pairs to test out. The first was Spiced Peach, which is my ideal neutral shades. It’s the one that I decided to try out first. if you asked me to create my perfect shade, this would be pretty darn close. The other was a classic Oxblood shade that is perfect for this time of the year.
As someone who hate fake nails, I fell in love with Static Nails.
The colors is gorgeous, but what really sold me over was the application. First of all, I love being able to do it all myself. One of the worst parts of going to the salon, in my opinion, is trusting someone to fix and file my nails. They never get the shape right and sometimes I’m even left bleeding. So doing it at home is ideal for me.
Plus you can personalize every single step. It all starts with the actual nails. Static Nails sends over more than enough options so that you can choose the perfect size for your finger. The rest of the process is just as personalized.
After you choose the perfect fit, you get to pick how long you want them on for. How insane is that! You can choose between one to two days, five to seven days, or seven to 18 days. The application is different depending on which one you choose. You’re going to put the glue on no matter which on you choose, but where you put the glue on changes.
Typically, once the fake nail is on, it’s on until it falls off. You’re in control with Static Nails. If you want to put them on for one night, you can. You can also decide to leave them on for weeks at a time. That’s what makes this brand so great.
The best part of all is that Static Nails are reusable.
Once you pop these babies off, you can glue them right back on. The glue doesn’t hurt your nail and it doesn’t damage your nails at all. I have super thin nails, so I was worried about them being all torn up. These didn’t hurt them at all. In fact, the nail glue comes right off too.
When I put these on, they were way too long. After trimming them and wearing them around for a while, I was sold. The fact that I can make them the size I want and reuse them until the glue runs out makes them the ultimate buy. Whether you hate fake nails or love the feel, you will love Static Nails.
I love when brands can change my mind about a product. All it takes is a well thought out and purposeful item to change your mind forever. That’s the beauty of, well, the beauty industry. There are so many options that you can never rule one item out right away. It’s all about finding the brand that works for you. If you look hard enough, you’ll find it.
