Ed. Obsession: Poppy Drops tattoo earrings under $10
But Poppy Drops are pretty brilliant. As someone who didn’t get her ears pierced until 18, I had tried every other alternative—clip-ons, magnetic studs, ear cuffs and more. But I could never get the chic look of a jeweled stud that I wanted.
Well, fellow piercing-free teens: rejoice! Poppy Drops might even be cuter than the real deal. For around $7 a pop, each themed collection includes a sweet assortment of styles. My faves are the Glitter Collection—with glitzy gemstones—and the I Can Fly collection—with owls, ladybugs and birds.
Application is easy—rub them on with a bit of water just like your typical temporary tattoo. And as long as you don't scrub them, they’ll last through a few showers.
A few more reasons why I’m obsessed: Poppy Drops are made in the USA from veggie dyes, so they’re 100% certified safe. And they’re not just the obvious choice for girls without pierced ears—they’re also the perf solution for girls who play sports (but still want to accessorize, natch).
