Between the long wait times, endless polish options, and time spent under a dryer, I’m more than happy with painting my nails at home or in most cases—not painting them at all. In the years since I first started playing with polish (middle school) and now (hello 30!), I’ve watched gel technology become the gold standard, thanks to its longer-lasting results. However, I’d be remiss to completely overlook the nail art stickers renaissance taking place, thus making it okay for us lazy beauties to finally get in on the nail-fie action.

Whether stores like Urban Outfitters and Target label them as nail stickers, nail decals, or nail wraps, the peel-and-apply designs are not only time-saving. Their versatility also makes it possible to wear them with polish or over naked nail beds. And regardless of how minimal or bold you decide to go with placement, you’re always getting a manicure that looks pro-level and like it actually took time to do.
