The Perfect Instant Mani - Why I NEED Press On Nails

Posted by Anna Ekpo on


Ekposé Beauty - The Beautiful Ones Eyeshadow Palette

I would have never imagined that Ekposé Beauty would offer our Instant Mani, a modern twist on press on nails. Before COVID-19, I hadn’t tried press on nails since I was a kid. Press on nails were not on my radar. But as we see, things can change in the blink of an eye.


At a time when we don’t have access to the things and places that help to make us feel our best, we can feel out of sorts. Small things help to create a sense of normalcy. Small things can help us feel like ourselves. As 
silly as it may sound, when I looked at my nails, I didn’t feel like myself. Something so small was a huge reminder that my world had been turned upside down. That small thing, not having my usual manicure, signified something a lot bigger. Looking at my nails was a constant reminder, and visual cue, that things were not normal. I know I won’t feel comfortable in large gatherings, or comfortable close to other close to people for a long time. I had to have an alternative to a crowded nail salon.

 Adding press on nails to the Ekposé Beauty product line was something that my heart and my spirit led me to do. It was a major departure from what I had envisioned. I had some apprehensions, and some concerns. Despite that, it was important to me to create a solution for women who were feeling the same way that I felt.  Now, I actually prefer the Instant Mani over my typical dip manicure.

It helps me a lot. At this point, it’s not vanity. As odd as it may seem, it represents consistency and stability. I hope that something small, like an instant mani, helps you too. ❤️

Best Beauty Wishes,
