You can now get a gel manicure without *any* fuss thanks to these stick-on gel nails (and the internet is going wild for them)
TikTok is quite the destination for gel manicure content – from nail art transformations to nail tech tips and DIY ideas. But for some, it’s the minimalist look that’s seriously in demand right now, and we reckon this new launch will answer the prayers of all the no-fuss mani fans out there.
Enter: stick-on gel nails. Yep, you heard us right. No more salon appointments, UV lamps or acetone soak-offs – these babies are the peel-and-stick beauty shortcut you’ve always wanted.
Intrigued? According to the brand, Glaize, the gels are cruelty-free and vegan, and last between 10 to 14 days. They’re made to measure to your nail shape, too – on buying, you upload some snaps of your hands so your mani fits perfectly. Ta-da.
At the moment, the newly-launched stick-ons are only available via pre-order, costing £13, though the website says they’ll be delivered within 5-7 days. Each kit includes 15 nails, just in case you need extras.
And as for removal, they simply peel off without any damage to the nail bed. Be honest, how many times have you picked away at your gel manicure rather than having it properly removed? Guilty as charged.
Glaize nails already have a number of in-the-know fans online – we’re just waiting for a viral TikTok video to follow.
From the line-up, we reckon the shade Olivia Twist is set to be a best-seller (based on the recent green nail trend doing the rounds), while Donut Disturb is a sweet soft pink that’s ideal for those neutral nail lovers.
“So excited for mine to arrive,” one fan wrote on TikTok, while another added on Instagram: “I’m really looking forward to seeing these! I’ve never tried anything like it before.”
Of course, the DIY gel manicure has really come into its own post-pandemic – and it can even be therapeutic to do your own nails (not to mention satisfying). Who can argue with a ten-minute mani?
