Hi everyone! Hope you’re all having a great Sunday! Having chipped and gross looking nail polish is one of my pet peeves. Not wanting to pay for acrylic or gel nails done at the salon, I started to look around at other options.
imPRESS Nails are press on nails that claim to apply in minutes and stay on until you chose to easily remove them. These seemed like a super fun idea to me and I figure that for $9.00 I couldn’t really go wrong. In each package, you get 24 pre-glued nails, a prep pad and a mini nail file.
The first time that I used these, I followed the instructions exactly. I pressed the nails on, and as promised the application was super quick and simple. The nails stayed on for about a day until they started to come off (things like washing your hands or touching your hair may make them come off sooner.) This method is great if you are going to a special event (prom, a wedding or a party) but not ideal if you’re looking for a long lasting alternative to nail polish.
To make them last longer I would recommend using nail glue. Just a few drops onto the nails allows them to stick on for over two weeks which is absolutely amazing. The removal process does take a bit more time with this option, but soaking your nails in acetone for a few minutes does the trick.
There are a ton of different patterns available, though they switch them out quite fast and don’t tend to bring old styles back. If you find a style you love I would definitely suggest picking up a few sets. They are harder to come by in Canada–I’ve only been able to find them at Walmart and their website doesn’t ship to Canada. 😦 But if you’re willing to hunt around a bit then it’s worth it!
Overall I’m extremely happy that I discovered imPRESS Nails and I hope that you guys will give them a shot if you’re getting annoyed with chipped nail polish. Be sure to let me know if you decide to try them! Have a great week everyone!
