My New Obsession | Press On Nails | Celebritips First Impressions & Application

Recently I started wearing faux nails again, after a ~4 year hiatus. I have been seeing so many fun colors and patterns on social media and it made me want to wear them again. I tend to have better luck with press-on nails than manicures as well since I am hard on my nails while typing, cleaning, etc. 

I was delighted when Celebritips reached out to ask if I would review their nails. They have some really unique designs that I hadn't seen before, as well as designs that are on trend, but in my opinion, they are trends that are here to stay. 

Their nails are salon-grade and easy to use. My first impression is that I love the packaging as it makes storing and re-using super easy. They would also be great to travel with, especially if you need to apply on the go.  The nails came with both glue and instant stick tabs. I prefer glue so that is what I used today, but I'm excited to try the instant tabs in the future. 
I decided to try the Mini Tangerine today.  They are a super cute print, and I'll usually go for a fun color in mid-winter just to brighten things up. I love that these have a neutral base, with a pop of orange. I usually go for short almond nails, and end up trimming them down but I feel like these are still a great length that is functional for my life. 

Applying nails is super easy, there are instructions in the case as well as on the site, but here is what I do: 
  1. Wash your hands.
  2. Trim your nails as short as possible.
  3. Push back your cuticles.
  4. Lightly buff the top of your nails.
  5. Use an alcohol wipe to remove any dust.
  6. Size your nails; there is a number on the back of each nail. I recommend writing this down for each finger so that in the future, you save time sizing. 
  7. One nail at a time: Apply glue to your nail and then to the nail you are applying.
  8. Press the nail toward the cuticle at a 45-degree angle.
  9. Hold for 15 seconds.
  10. When you're done, lightly file the tips or trim if desired. 
I noticed that Celebritips nails are slightly textured on the back, which is something I haven't seen in other brands but it should help the nail stay on better (similar to buffing your natural nails). 

Celebritips is a small, female-founded business that I'm proud to share with you on my blog. The nails have been designed in LA, and are both vegan and cruelty-free. I can't wait to see what designs this brand produces next, and I'm excited to try a new design in a few weeks. Thank you Celebritips!
