Press-On Nails Are a Trend??

It's probably not a beauty trend you'd expect to see come out of New York Fashion Week, but manicurists have spoken, and they seem to be saying: Get thee to a drugstore for some white press-on nails. 

The Huffington Post rounds up a handful of surprisingly sleek iterations of the press-and-go mani, which is popping up everywhere from Kate Spade to Kye. 

Wait, Press-On Nails Are a Trend Now? The Most Unlikely Manicure Look From New York Fashion Week-

What do you think?  Would you give press-on nails a try?

I have tried them and while they look good and are easy to use, they aren't comfortable. They don't stay on well and I feel like I have to be ultra careful when wearing them.

I keep a package or two in my bathroom as a back up for when I break a nail farther down and its the odd one on my hand.  I try to keep it looking as real as possible, I personally don't like the look of rounded or more pointy nails like the ones in the pictures, so the ones I keep are squared off and in a soft pink just like I keep my natural nails on a daily basis.
