What: Kiss Broadway Glue-On Nails, $10.24

Huh?: In high school, I was a huge fan of the acrylics. The majority of my allowance money went towards the maintenance of my nails – now granted I grew up in New Jersey, so it was somewhat of a requirement to have long nails and large, pouffy bangs – of which I had both but we'll save the bang conversation for another day. When I departed the jerz for the bright lights of the big city, I thought I had left my adolescent fashion choices behind never to resurface. Until I was introduced to Kiss Broadway Glue-On Nails. Touted as the modern day, upgraded version of Lee Press-Ons, I scoffed at the concept of reverting back to not only artifical nails in general, but plastic, do-it-yourself ones. However for entertainment's sake, I tried them out. Lo and behold, a week and a half later, these guys are still firmly planted on my fingers. And I love them! They look completely natural, and can be cut, filed, and shaped to fit any nail. Each kit comes with instructions, nail glue, and a set of 24 to 48 nails in 12 different sizes. The back of each nail has a sizing number so you can go up or down if it's not a fit. Each nail looks smooth and polished, and there's no annoying polish chipping, cracking, or smearing – which always haunts me after a manicure. I swear, I took home six boxes and plan on wearing these for a very long time. Who knows – I might even start teasing my bangs again.
