For a couple of years now, I have been taking the minimalist route when it comes to my manicure choices. A solid color is usually sufficient enough for me. And when I want to add a bit of pizzazz to my nails, a glitter accent does the trick. But lately, I have been wanting to experiment more with my nails, and what better way than with imPRESS' Press On Manicure set!
Press-on nails are a fun and quick way to instantly spruce up nails. They are a cinch to apply, and require no drying time. It can't get any better than that. I received the imPRESS Press-On Manicure "Sexy Fresh" Set in my Influenster Spring Fever VoxBox, and I couldn't wait to give them a try. The bright and colorful feather designs are super fun, and the shiny finish these nails impart is just amazing.
Press-On Nails (love the cute nail polish bottle packaging!), Prep Pad, Mini Nail File
imPRESS Press-On Manicure: "Sexy Fresh"
These press-on nails are super easy to apply-as expected. First, you lay out the ten nails that size up best with your natural nails-tab aligning with the cuticle (the nails are numbered on the back, so one can easily find which two to pair together), then you cleanse/wipe your natural nails with the included prep pad. After that, peel off the clear film on the back of the nails and firmly press the nails on. That's it! The set also includes a mini nail file, but I didn't really feel the need to use it. I liked the shape and length of the nails as is. But the file is handy to have, in case you want to file down or round out the edges of the press-on nails. Quick tip: When applying the nails, start at the pinkie and work across from there, leaving the thumb nails for last. This way, application is so much easier.
The imPRESS Press-On Manicure set promises up to one week of lasting power. I started to get some tip wear three days in, and one nail came off on day five. Not bad. To remove the nails I just carefully peeled them off from the sides. I loved that no damage was done to my natural nails.
I think those with wide nail beds will benefit the most from these press-on nails. My nail beds are on the wider end of the spectrum, so I didn't have much trouble finding a good fit. But there were a couple of press-ons that didn't quite fit over my entire nail bed. For a few nails, the sides of my natural nails still peeked through. Luckily it wasn't something that was majorly noticeable.
Overall: For the most part, I was very pleased with the imPRESS Press-On Manicure set. The nails were comfortable to have on, and for press-on nails, I am really impressed (no pun intended) with how long these nails held up. I like that 24 nails were included in the set, which is enough for two applications. Gotta love that. I am definitely going to pick up a few more of imPRESS' Press-On Manicure sets next time I stop by my local drugstore. I hope to find some bright colors, which are going to be so fun to sport this summer!
