Being a mom who works from home and also blogs, I never have time for small luxuries like manicures. Painting my nails becomes a small chore at times, so having an easy and quick option to get my nails done at home is great. I recently tried the imPress Press-On Manicure kit from Broadway Nails and today I'm going to share my experience with you.
I received two sets of the imPress nails; Casting Call (left) and Boogie Down (right).
The nails have a sticky backing covered with plastic, you remove the plastic strip to reveal the stickiness and apply it to your nails. There is no dry time with this system, which makes it especially appealing to a busy mom like myself. The Ultra-Hold Technology claims to keep nails waterproof and in-tact for up to a week.
To apply, you use the included prep pad to remove any oil or dirt from your nails, match up the correct size, then remove the backing and press on to your natural nail. The finish is similar to that of gel nails. Below is a photo of "Casting Call" on my nails.
Unfortunately I found that these nails did not last long at all. The look beautiful, and feel very sturdy at first, but within hours the nails started falling off and my natural nails have a visible amount of moisture on them. I did not submerge my nails in anything, so I'm not sure what happened, but I experienced the same unfortunate result with "Boogie Down" as well.
If you'd like to give these beautiful nails a try, you can find them at Walgreens for ~$7.99.
