These make for fun DIY projects too

As many non-essential businesses continue to remain closed this circuit breaker period, nail parlours in Singapore are no different. But making a comeback this season is the press-on nail, as a couple of beauty salons find alternative methods to assist their patrons in looking chic while staying indoors.

Now offering custom, handmade press-on nail sets and gel manicure removal kits are the following nail parlours. Simply order these gorgeous babies by giving the manicurist your design of choice, nail measurements and address, then wait for your manicure pack to arrive in the mail. P.S. These make for fun DIY projects too.


Attain perfectly manicured nails thanks to these made-to-order press-ons by Glow Girl Nails. They’ve got a galaxy-inspired nail set for astronomy enthusiasts, or nude and white designs for the minimalist. Starting from $25, these nail kits are made with 100 percent gel tips instead of plastic, and are therefore worth your every cent.


For top quality sets of hand-drawn press-on nails, check out @NailedIttttt on Instagram. Not only are the designs reusable, but they can last up to two and a half weeks too. To order, fill up an order form available on the salon’s Instagram page and send in images of your design of choice. Unsure how to appropriately apply the press-ons? Details on how to fit the tips are on the nail parlour’s social media platform as well.


Besides boasting a selection of ready-to-order designs, Choa Chu Kang nail salon Vain Nails is also currently taking orders for press-on customisations. From elegant marble and glitter pieces to others showcasing handcrafted 3D cartoon art, it's no wonder this beauty parlour isn’t just a hit with ladies living in the West.
