Well, after seeing so many reviews and raves about the imPRESS press-on nails that I received free from Influenster's Voxbox, I had really high hopes and very high expectations (If you don't know what Influenster is, check out my previous post here explaining the site & process).
The set of nails I received is called "Space Cadet" and the pattern is very glam glittery pebbles.
What is great about these nails is that the process of applying is literally 4 steps and very simple; clean your nails (with the alcohol pad provided), match and find the perfect size, peel the sticker from the nail, and press the nails on. There is no drying time so these nails are great and easily applied even on the go or when running late. They are also easy to take off, and no need for acetone or ruining your natural nails since no nail glue is being applied.
I use my hands very actively throughout the day, so in terms of lasting power, the nails only lasted a few days (compared to the 7 days that the company claims). I believe part of the problem was that the nails didn't quite sit flush enough on my natural nails, the press-on nails felt a bit bulky and didn't fit properly towards my cuticles. In fact even though there were 24 nails with different sizes, it was a bit hard to find a perfect match, also some of the nails were a bit rough on the edges which made the smaller sizes uncomfortable.
I like that this product comes in many different patterns (along with matte colors) so you can mix and match depending on your mood or the occasion, also I am a huge fan of not using nail glue since it does damage the natural nails, so it's great that these are press-on nails. I would highly recommend this product for a 1-2 night event such as a wedding, a date, or prom, simply because they do look very nice yet the lasting power is not the same as a salon manicure so they wouldn't work as great for everyday use.
Here is some additional information from the manufacturer:
I am interested to see if anyone out there has tried these imPRESS press-on nails, and what your thoughts and experiences are on them!
