Ok, imPRESS manicure you got my attention! The nail polish obsessed in me is totally loving this press-on mani concept and the fact that I didn’t use any tools to do this ‘nail art’.
They’re supposed to be 2x long lasting compare to other press-on nails in the market, waterproof and features a Safehold Adhesive Technology that won’t damage your nails. I really hope so*.

To be honest, I was skeptical about this nail product and even though I see them displayed at CVS all the time, I never had the urge to try them until I met another nail art fanatic at an event recently, whom I complimented because her nails looked fab! Then she told me they were press-ons! Wow!
I’m wearing imPRESS in So, So Stellar design ($6.99) in short length, so I had to trim my natural nails shorter than normal so they’re not sticking out. Each pack comes with a prep pad, a tiny nail file and a guide. There are 24 nails in 12 different sizes and 2 cute heart charms (with an adhesive provided) although I went for Kiss Pop Nail Art stickers in the end to complete the design.
What to expect:
Surprisingly these press-on nails look just like my nails (but way better) once they’re all glued on. No one could tell, even my hubby, that they were fake nails and I find that pretty awesome. The nails are slightly soft-textured so they fit well leaving little to no gaps when press on to your own nails and once they’re on, they are ON. I find no discomfort wearing them that sometimes I actually forget that I have them on. I was concerned that they would come off once I started washing dishes or doing house chores and what not, but boy was I wrong. What we got here is one tough cookie.
Press-on nails or nail appliques in general, are real time saver, hassle-free and you don’t even have to worry about any spill accidents or the nightmare of painting your right hand nails! The struggle is very real on this one.
*And I did take off one of the press-on nails just to see how things are looking under and all I can say folks is my nail is looking just fine!
