Quick Product Review - Impress Press on Manicure

So in my pursuit to add a little glamour to my life, I decided to try the above mentioned product, kinda adorable in it's cute little nail polish bottle packaging:

After all, every polished lady of the 40's and 50's had their nails done, so I had to make the effort. Why not just paint my nails you ask? Well because I lack that dainty, lady like quality one needs for manicured nails, I think my longest no-chip stint was about three hours. Which brings us back to the press-ons. I choose a classic red, and it was really very pretty in person. 
Here's what they look like on: (excuse the bad lighting/my old lady hands, but you get the idea)

They give you a variety of sizes in the bottle, you go through and find the right size for each nail, peel off the sticky, and badda bing! Some of them were a little large/long for each finger, and you can't tell by the picture, but there was a weird sort of small tab at the end of each finger tip (I guess to show you which way out?), both of which I think would have been fine after some filing. Problem is it turns out I'm not a fake nails kind of girl either :( I ripped them off after about two hours. The feeling of them tugging on my own nail just kinda gave me the creeps. I do think this is a really great product however and still a good option for special occasions.  It definitely delivers on it's promises and looks very nice, unfortunately it's just not for me. Once I can find shellac that is not tested on animals that will be my next adventure in manicures, but for the time being I will just have to be content with my toes done and to let my nails run free :)


  1. I love the look of these nails and will try them for a one-time party or event! Don't think I'd leave them on for very long, either. Thanks for the review!

    1. They would be perfect for that I think. Thanks so much for reading! :)
