I’m not really sure what to say except, have you tried this? If not, you need to!
I’ve always seen these Dashing Diva Magic Press-On Nails at Watsons every time I dropped by to stock up on stuff, but somehow have also always been apprehensive of them. To spend money on press-on nails and not be sure if they would last 2-3 weeks? I’d rather get an express gel manicure done for $18 at Far East Plaza.
But then I saw them on Shopee and said, “Screw this, let’s try it.” And so here I am, a couple of sets later and I’m a convert.
Not only are these fake nails so pretty, they also:
- come in a variety of colours, textures and designs
- come in different lengths
- have a slim fit version for thinner nails
- last for weeks
- are very sturdy
These have lasted hair washes, doing the dishes, bathing the baby and more. A note though on washing my hair with these on is that my hair can get caught beneath the fake nails, or between the nail and crystals that are stuck on. It’s slightly annoying but since I don’t wash my hair every day, I’ll close an eye on that.
You can see my other Labien Tweed set in my 3-month postpartum blog post here.
When removing the nails, you’ll need to use acetone or maximum strength nail polish remover, and ensure that it gets beneath the fake nails. I tried it with normal nail polish remover and it took me an hour to do that. These aren’t as damaging to my real nails as gel manicures are, so I would go back to them again and again. They are so easy to put on and last for so long – I’m really surprised by this! Just make sure you avoid water for 30min after applying them.
I definitely recommend these. If you aren’t a fan of having long nails, get the short ones – you’ll probably keep them on for longer too. See all the retailers on Shopee or shop directly from the Dashing Diva Official Shopee store.
