Whether or not you’ve got the skills to do your own fancy manicures, if you’re a book lover who wants to show your love on your nails, you’ve got options. We’re in a golden era of press and glue on nails, as well as an era where finding a little extra bling is easy and fun.
Perhaps you’ve never done much in terms of your nails and are skeptical. Have you considered how much you look down at your hands throughout the day? If you’re someone who uses a phone or keyboard for work, chances are it’s not an insignificant amount of time. Give yourself something to smile at and don some bookish nails.
Find below a fun collection of bookish press-ons, stickers, and more. A good number of these bookish nail kits are especially perfect for comics readers. The dynamic colors make them fun, and their easy use makes them foolproof for even the worst nail-doers among us.
Note that because of the nature of how these nails are created — some are hand-painted, one-of-a-kind designs, while others are made in larger, less time-consuming batches — the prices fluctuate greatly.
