I'll never forget the first time I tried press-on nails. I was probably 12 or 13 and my mom was finally allowing me to get manicures while my friends got to experiment with tips and acrylics. I knew there was no chance in hell my Dominican mami was going to be okay with me sporting long, fake nails with funky designs on them. I'd never hear the end of it about how they'd ruin my actual nails and prevent them from growing. So one day I took a trip to my local pharmacy (behind mami's back of course) and bought myself my first pack of press-on French nails. It was a total nightmare and I looked like a complete loca!

Press-on nails were pretty ratchet back in the day. The classy chicas got their nails done at an actual salon. But the press-on nails of today are actually really chic. I tried them once and got a ton of compliments. Not only do they look and feel like real nails but they're also incredibly easy to use. Here are the 7 most stylish press-on nails ever! Even if you haven't worn press-on nails in decades--you'll love these.

Impress Press-On Manicure Nail Covers ($7) are amazing. All you have to do is make sure your natural nails are clean. Then pull off the plastic and press them firmly right over your real nails so they stick. It's that simple!

The Sally Hansen Effects Real Nail Polish Strips ($11) are not your usual press-on nails. They're actually press on polish complete with funky nail art. They even come right off with nail polish remover.

Kiss Gel Fantasy Ready-to-Wear Gel ($8) is basically press-on gel polish. It stays for days with no UV lamp or glue needed. Think gel mani without the damage.
