I mean seriously, I just went on a bachelorette trip to Florida and I was scrambling the day before to get my toes done. I could have saved so much time if I had something on-hand at home to use so I can get a pedicure-effect, but for half the cost and way less of the time and scramble. That’s why it’s a great idea to pick up some of these press-on gel nail sets that you can keep around and grab when you need them.

Here’s a quick how-to of how these press-ons work:

First, sort your nails and match the ones that are perfectly your size. Each kit includes a mix of short and extra short options and widths for a variety of nail bed shapes.

Then, apply glue to the back of the press-on nail directly. Allow them to dry fully and then cure under an LED light (we love this $25 one) for 60 seconds. From there you can add a design to spice up your French pedicure, or keep them as is.

Go in with the gel builder to get a gel-effect (aka long lasting!), cure that for 60 seconds. The final step is going in with the top coat and curing that for another 60 seconds under the light.

The tips are also available in a few different color shades, so you can pick which one you like best, based on the look you’re going for.

Since these press-ons are made from a proprietary BTMMA ™ mix soft gel material that’s extra breathable, your nails won’t become damaged as you wear them. That, combined with specially patented materials and patented X-COAT ™ process, allows users to wear these nails for longer periods of time without chips.

Looking for French mani tips to match? BTArtbox Nails also offers X-COAT ™ mani press-ons ($27), so you can match your toes. They come in various shades, colors, and tip shapes.

From start to finish, the whole thing should be done in 30 minutes, which is much less time than at the salon. Plus at just $27, it’s about $20-$30 cheaper than a salon visit too. Grab a few so you’re always ready for anything.
