7 Nail Wraps for Summer, No Drying Time Required

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Of course we still love to paint our nails using good, old-fashioned nail polish, but there's something to be said for nail strips in the summertime. They're perfect for a season full of activities since you can apply them mere minutes before hosting a BBQ, heading to the beach, or packing for a long weekend without the fear of smudging. Once on, they live up to their reputation of being long-lasting, so make sure to pick out a design you really like—and be warned you might need some extra grease to get your mani off. Check our gallery above for great options from Sally Hansen, Essie, and more.—Cleo Zancope
