Impress press on manicure - Maroon

Not a fan of this product, I bought it for a function and was sorely disappointed. These nails fall off easily and does not last throughout the day/evening. Waste of money and effort as it take time to apply each nail.

Impress Nails

I am hardly a girly girl, its difficult finding a product that I feel like its just made for me, but the imPress Nails are the best!

I love love love them, I love the colours, the length and most of all, the easy application.

I am totally in love!

IMPRESSED

Perfect little kit for when you need a relatively inexpensive quick fix . Not the most durable but worthwhile for those last minute occasions

A definite must have

I loved using this product and is IMPRESSED with how easy application is and how long it lasts. Application is a breeze because of the hassle free pull and press system and they claim that it lasts 7 days, my mani lasted way more than 8 days, with only one nail that really budged. Another great thing about this product is the fact that it does not destroy your own nails when removed, it becomes soft and bendable and you can pull it off easily. I will definitely repurchase it again. It looks flawless.

Impress Press on nails

I have often used stick on nails, from a few different brands. These were a much better price than the brand I had been using, and looked really nice, so I figured I'd give them a go. I won't be repurchasing.

There weren't 24 nail sizes, only 24 nails in the pack. I found that no matter which size I tried, it wouldn't completely cover my nail, and they were a lot thicker than the other brands I'd used before. They also didn't stay on for more than 3 days, when more than 1 of them started to fall off.

I've used many other brands and styles of these nails and I haven't had the same problem with them.

Impress Press-on-manicure:

Such a fast, easy and brilliant idea for women on the go! Unfortunately not very effective for me.
I saw my cousin rocking some trendy nails a while back that looked glossy, perfectly shaped and neat; even after a day of hiking and swimming. I was so impressed and asked for her manicurist’s number, what she did was hand me a little plastic bottle instead.

The bottle is a bigger replica of a nail polish bottle in clear plastic, with a black twist-off lid that resembles the lid of a nail polish bottle. I choose a pretty pastel pink design with white flowers and silver glitter. This press on-manicure is essentially a mini kit as it comes with 24 nail sizes, a prep pad and a mini nail file. The plastic box that contains all the contents has writing done in black, pink and white; this gives the overall image a very famine and sophisticated look.
The prep pad is an acetone soaked pad that’s used to clean the nail of any oily residue whist the nail file has two sides used to buff and file nails. The nails have no pull tabs that break-off but I did find the slightest of raises on the edge, this makes pulling the sticker protector off so easy.
The whole process was pretty simple:

First pick out the nail sizes that correspond to your natural nail size. Then use the green side of the nail file to gently buff the nail surface to allow for a coarse surface that allows the nail to stick to the now rough texture. Clean the nail and area around the nail bed with the prep pad. Once nails have been buffed and prepped, peel the transparent tab under the artificial nail and push the artificial nail onto your own nail. Hold down with some pressure for at least to the count of 15. Release the pressure and the artificial nail should be stuck onto your own nail. The artificial nail feels a bit weird and thick at first but is way more comfortable than the conventional glue on fake nails.

This mini kit is great for when you need stand-out nails and quick, buying many colours and patterns means you can design and co-ordinate every nail differently but within a theme. They offer many plain colour options as well as the classic French or daring and wild lace, animal print and cracked effects.

The removing process was relatively easy, just gently tug on the nail and then pour some nail polish remover over the nail or use a piece of foil wrapped around the finger filled with nail polish remover. Once off, there’s no residue stuck on your natural nails and no damage either.

I didn’t get a chance to test the wear ability of the nails as I only could find sizes that fitted onto 4 fingers! I have a very tiny nail bed and so artificial nails don’t work for me, I was so amazed at this kit though and with its 24 sizes was sure I could’ve found sizes hence made the rash purchase. Because I couldn’t get a full hands worth I didn’t leave the four adorned nails on but have included photos of how they look on. They retail between R99.95 and R149.99 depending on the style you choose and whether the store stocking them are having any specials. Because I had to hunt for sizes, the lengths were all off on my nails which I didn’t appreciate. So I suggest if you don’t have nails that are well suited to artificial nail sizes then give this kit a skip.
