ImPRESS PRESS-ON MANICURE

May 09, 2019

By Jue Douglas

For those of you who don’t know I have had an on-off nail biting habit for years. Over time my nails have become weak and last year was the first time I finally broke the habit and stopped biting them completely. The trouble with growing your nails is you get used to them being long. I don’t know about you but I find I can do more with longer nails. So what happens when they break... . Now I know what you’re thinking it’s not such a big deal and the nail biter in me hates myself for getting upset when I break a nail. Yes I have turned into one of those people.....This is when false nails can be a godsend.

Years ago applying false nails with anything else but glue ended in disaster. I for one remember using stickers to apply false nails and about an hour later they had already pinged off, leaving disappointment and bare nails.
I’m not too keen on nail glue. When I’m applying false nails the glue seems to go everywhere except the nail and it’s a pain to remove. Basically I can never seem to do it right and end up in a mess that it  ends up not worth the hassle.
If you’re anything like me the Impress Nails are perfect!
Firstly if you step away from the fact these are stick on nails and look at the designs they are amazing. You can literally get any colour combinations and pretty glitter accent nails that make them look salon quality.( Whats not to love about a glitter accent!)  Infact I can’t imagine a salon making your nails look any nicer than these designs. These nails are probably the prettiest false nails I have ever seen available and definitely do the best colour spectrum.
They are classed as a “gel nail breakthrough” and a “one step manicure” and it’s easy to see why.
With their new ultra fit design that promise to be slimmer yet stronger. Tapered cuticle, contoured fit and patented super hold adhesive. They seem to have everything going for them.

The little box comes with 30 nails in various sizes to fit any nail and you probably would get one time wear from the box. Maybe two if your lucky with sizes.
The nail length isn’t over the top or too much like some nails you can get and I don’t think you would really have to file them down to go about your day to day business.
Also included in the box is a prep pad, ( that you wipe your nail with before applying the nails) mini file and a manicure stick. These are very useful even though you probably already own a file and manicure stick it’s great to have them at hand just in case.
The instructions are easy to follow and and once you’ve done your prep you are good to go.
These nails are so easy to apply ( which is probably a good job with me!) I mean so easy. I found the best and easiest way is to set out all the nail sizes out before starting to apply.
The key factor to these nails is to make sure you have them the right way around and it’s always best to try them on your nail first before peeling back the sticky tab. Once you have peeled the sticky tab and pressed it onto your nail it’s well and truly stuck.

Application took me about 10 mins making these the quickest false nails I’ve ever applied.
Definitely the cleanest and safest. I say safest as I know certain brands of false nails have restricted age sales to younger people, because of the glue but not these ones. These are safe to use at any age and with them being the shape they are and not over the top in length.
The nails are not only safe to use they won’t do your nails underneath any damage either. Infact your natural nails get a chance to grow underneath. This means that if you have been using fake nails for a while and your natural nails are damaged and weak these make an amazing temporary product to use.


Line up the nails before removing the stickers!

Gone are the days when stuck on nails lasted for a couple of hours. These really lasted. Obviously if you have your hand in water 24/7 these might not be for you. Saying that if you have a night out or special occasion they would be perfect.
Mine lasted for about three days with minimum water exposure. I probably could have reapplied the nail making them last a little longer but I thought three days showed pretty good staying power. To be honest I forgot I had them on and was probably not as careful as I should have been. So overall excellent results.

I will definitely be buying more of these nails. I have my eyes on a beautiful marble set for my holidays that I will be purchasing.

Until next time
