A beautiful, well-groomed hand has been something I have wanted since I was a teen. I’ve have always been envious of my friends and of celebrities who have long, strong, beautifully shaped nails. Unfortunately, genetics got in the way and I was born with my mother’s nails. A short nail bed with thin, peeling nails.
I’ve tried lotions, pills, and potions to try and get healthier, stronger nails. Nothing seems to work.
A few weeks ago I had found out that I was selected to review Canada’s first Influenster box, the #MapleVoxBox. I was pretty excited about trying all the goodies in it, but one item had caught my eye. The imPRESS Press-on Manicure by Broadway Nails. I’ve always wanted to try artificial nails, but was worried that the glue would make my nails even worse. This is what excited me about the imPRESS nails. It didn’t use a glue. It it has its own adhesive on the nail which can last up to a week! The nail pattern I received is called Lovestruck which was a combination of orange, neon yellow, and purple polka dot. I loved this pattern and colour combination! So much fun!
The application was a breeze! I picked out the nails that were the best fit for each nail and just peeled off the plastic to expose the adhesive and pressed the nail down. Simple! (tip: do your thumbs last, it makes it a lot easier!)
My nails looked great! Mine lasted 4 days, but that is pretty good considering I am a mom who is always doing dishes, cleaning up, etc. These specific nails were the short type, but as you can see in the pic below, they were still a little long on me. This is because I have a really small nail bed. I would have liked for them to be a little shorter because I’m not used to that length but that doesn’t chance my opinion
I would definately recommend the imPRESS Press-on Manicure, and I plan on picking up a few sets this week for Christmas and New Years. Have you tried them? Were you “imPRESSed”? 🙂 Let me know your thoughts on them.
