imPRESS Press On Manicures
I was short on time before an event recently, when I remembered the imPRESS Press-On Manicure sets that were sent to me. Figuring I needed something that wouldn't require a lengthy dry time, I opted to use the pretty fall brick color on the left called "Casting Call".
Not only is application mess-free and speedy, but imPRESS nails are marketed as damage-free with ultra-hold and mega-shine gel color.
Using these press on nails is very easy, and requires no nail glue. On the back of each nail is an adhesive gel. You simply peel back the plastic backing, and press the nail down firmly and wa-lah. You're set! It's recommended you take it easy and keep pressing on the nails sporadically for about 30 minutes until they are set. It took me about 5 minutes to complete the whole process - finding the right sizes for each of my nails and applying. So simple!
The pros? There's literally no drying time involved. These stuck on, and stayed put far better than I expected them to. Also, the color is gorgeous and there are so many different options for fun designs. When you want to take them off, they come off easily without ruining your natural nails and there's no build-up of nail glue left behind like traditional press-on nails.
The cons? I couldn't find shapes that matched all of my nails perfectly. And the most irritating thing was that the nails weren't flush with my real nails, so if I scratched my head, my hair would get stuck in between my real nails and the imPRESS nails, which I just found to be annoying.
Overall though, I think these are a super easy, fun way to get a great looking manicure for under $10! You can purchase imPress Press On nail sets at Walgreens for $7.99!
