We Found the 15 Nail Wraps That Will Really (Truly) Look Like an Actual Mani

·3 min read

Let's just state the obvious: Nail wraps have a reputation for being a real pain in the you-know-what. Although these alternative mani's may have a bad wrap (heh), there are actually some serious pros to using them that far outweigh the cons.

First, they allow you to change up your nail color at the drop of a dime. Second, they're a far more reasonably priced alternative to a professional mani. Hiif you're like me and casually drop $100 at the nail salon each visit, you'll be saving some serious cash in the long run. Not to mention the fact that they're the fastest way to create your own at-home nail art that's on the level of the below artists. The best nail polish strips will do that in next to no time.
