Politics can be a pretty cut-and-dry world — boring, if I'm being honest. And up until the last decade, politicians being seen as relatable and regular people wasn't a popular concept. But if you've been tuned into what's going on in this country recently (as you should be), you've probably heard Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's name come up many times.
Ocasio-Cortez is the young congresswoman who is shattering the status quo for women who work in politics. Day after day she shows us that politicians (some, at least) are just like the people they represent.
Ever seen a congresswoman give tips on how to apply press-ons? We didn't think so, but you're about to.
She even gave her own beauty expertise, and based on our knowledge of press-ons we can tell she knows exactly what she's talking about.
"The trick," she wrote, “is to wait a bit and then file them down to your natural/desired shape. I usually go with plain nails but when I want a little pick me up or if an event is coming I’ll grab these at the drug store. They last for a week!”
Who said that congresswomen had to have boring nails?
For only $8, you can get the exact same nails Ocasio-Cortez loves. Check them out for yourself.

The deep burgundy gives us serious sophisticated vibes. And with that accent nail, she'd have the best mani in the Capitol.

Since she likes nude shades, why not add a few simple silver accents?
Bells & Whistles ($8, imPRESS)
This sultry blue is both a subtle homage to our country's flag and a chic fashion statement.
