5 Times Store Bought Nails Failed Us

In some ways, press-on nails have become our savior thanks to their low costs and easy application, but the reality is that what you can find at CVS is a far cry away from glamour.

Between worrying about them staying on, or damaging your natural nails, to looking like you borrowed your little sister’s nail tips, store bought nails are simply less than satisfactory. Luckily, we’ve created a solution for you: sophisticated, high-quality nails with an extremely strong, yet easily removable adhesive.

Here are five scenarios you should consider before trying out store bought nails and why you should go Clutch instead. Don’t say we didn’t warn you…

1. You Can’t Do Anything With Your Hands

It’s the start of a new week, you even washed your hair last night. You’re getting ready for a big meeting, so you put on those press-ons you bought over the weekend because you didn’t have time to make it to a nail salon. They’re on, except something isn’t quite right. You realize that you’ve lost the ability to do anything with your hands.

Sorry girl, but that’s not going to get you a promotion. Instead, you should try Clutch’s short nails, which are both gorgeous and don’t get in the way of you living your best life.

2. The Gym Is Off Limits

New year, new you, right? You’re ready to hit the gym after work, but the second you grab a dumbbell three of your five nails fall to the floor.

The dilemma becomes: do I take the rest of the nails off or do I run to the locker room to try to glue them back on? Sadly, it’s a lose-lose situation and you just stare at your hands asking yourself, “how did my life come to this?”

Do yourself a favor and get Clutch Nails. You can easily remove them before the gym without having to worry about damage to your nails and pop them back on before you hit happy hour.

3. Stay Out Of The Kitchen

Your new healthy lifestyle has you feeling great. Your hair is done and your makeup looks especially good. You feel so great that you decide to recreate that new recipe you saw on Pinterest earlier. You even invite some friends over and make it a dinner party, but you forget that you have the press-ons on that you bought at Target.

The food is ready and everybody is having a good time. Then, out of nowhere, your friend begins to choke. They cough up their food into their napkin and begin to examine what almost axed them.

You look down and notice a nail missing….

Pro-tip: Put on your Clutch Nails on after cooking to keep them clean and fresh, and take them off before you have to do the dishes, so you can wear them again the next day.

4. To Date, Or Not To Date

There’s a guy you really like, and after three dates it seems like everything is going very well. You laugh together, and you even like the same food. After dinner and a movie you go back to his place.

So far, so good. You extend the movie night and begin to Netflix and chill. He slides closer to you and grabs your hand. Out of instinct you begin to scratch his arm. It’s cute at first until your press-on falls off and sticks to his arm.

Now you’re sitting there awkwardly peeling your nail from his arm while explaining why you didn’t have time to go to a salon.

FYI Clutch’s adhesive can withstand a lot, including at the very least arm scratching. Fear no more, ladies.

5. The Awful Snake Skin

You’ve heard all the stories about press-on nails, so you decide to try to trick the system and buy the most intense nail glue CVS has. You squeeze the glue tube and, to your horror, suddenly your fingers are completely stuck together. Five minutes go by and you’re finally able to break the bond of the super glue you bought, but your hand now looks like it has scales.

Just to be clear, there is no tricking the system. There is only changing the system.

You deserve so much more. You deserve better, which is why we created Clutch Nails. You’re welcome.
