Manicures fast and easy with imPRESS Press on Manicure!

I don't know about you, but I never have the time, nor did I ever have the talent for doing my nails.  I am indeed envious of those blessed with the talent to turn their nails into works of art...or at least presentable tips!  I also have chronically dry and sensitive cuticles, which makes the process of painting or removing polish painful.  Out of the past and revamped, press on nails have come back in a huge way.  Let us see how imPRESS is helping everyone achieve a salon perfect manicure anywhere at anytime!

imPRESS Press on Manicure is an at home manicure with the added benefits of ease and quickness!
"Through innovation and revolutionary technology, imPRESS manicure initiated a new category and developed into a standalone brand.  The innovative PSA (Pressure Sensitive Adhesive), eliminated key barriers such as nail damage, ease of application and product reliability while UltraHold(TM) technology introduced a safe-on-nails adhesive ending the need for glue and acetone-soak removal.  imPRESS is perfect for women with busy schedules and younger women who cant afford weekly salon visits.  Women in every generation enjoy imPRESS manicure because there truly is something for everyone.  From the French manicure to elaborate designs, women rely on imPRESS Manicure as an alternative to nail polish - without dry time or smudges or dings." - imPRESS

Inside of each imPRESS Manicure kit you receive a set of press on nails, nail prep pad and mini file and instruction sheet.  Some kits as the pink one above shows, contains additional accent nails in a glitter texture.  The other kit I received contained two jewel accents to add to any nail I desired.

The color above is Symphony.  This particular kit contained 30 Ultra Shine Gel nails, 6 of those being glitter accent nails.  The Symphony kit came with press ons that were a very light bubblegum pink and two different glitter accents, criss cross pattern and full glitter.

Affordable and easy to find in stores
Many colors and textures to choose from
Super quick and easy to use
Long lasting

Sizing to nail beds

The nails have an adhesive backing on them.  When you have properly prepped your nails, you just peel off the protective tab off the nail and press them on.  After you press them into place, your nails are long lasting and WATERPROOF!  No dry time!  Yes, you can wash dishes, your hands, your hair, anything.  I was amazed at how long lasting these really are.

I have wide nail beds so the sizing for some of the nails was slightly off.  imPRESS does provide you with quite a few different sizing options in the kit, so if your sizing falls in there, you are set to go!  The length was also short, which may or may not appeal to those wanting to try these.

imPRESS is all about being on trend, so nail styles, colors and textures will change to suit this.  If you fall in love with a finish, stock up!

Even though sizing was off on a few, I really did enjoy using these.  They make me look and feel polished and pretty.  The process is so quick and rather enjoyable.  And at $7.99 a pack, they are a steal.
