Stick on nails are back, people - and yes, you read that correctly. Joanna Taylor finds out why the nails of the noughties are making a return

Press on nails, remember those? Promising instant, preened sophistication yet always somehow missing the mark, pinging off during class time or angering one’s parents. It’s no wonder we ditched them along with our collections of Jane Norman shopping bags.

Now, however, they’ve arisen from the depths of the past and have had a new, tremendously chic lease of life, begging to save our mani-less lockdown nails.

Naillery, by manicurist and ex-stylist Suzi Rezler, is the new brand at the forefront. Offering an array of long withstanding press on falsies with designs including everything from cow print to 70s swirls and multi-coloured French tips, Rezler’s creative hand-painted brush strokes have us glued to her shop.

Rather than create wastage, each set is tailored to the size of the wearer’s nail beds. Plus, each design is available in 5 different shapes, from the delicate ballerina to the razor sharp stiletto, and arrives with a fully-fledged application kit, including tabs, glue and a nail file for the best application results.

Oh and did I mention, they’re reusable? Go on, treat yourself.
