imPRESS Press-On Manicure Review

My previous post described what I got in my Influenster Holiday VoxBox, and shortly after writing that entry I decided to try the imPRESS Press-On Manicure by Broadway Nails that I received in that box.

Basically, these are a set of plastic press-on nails.  I think their packaging is really cute; I like how the nails are inside of a little nail polish bottle.  They're available at drugstores and mass-market stores like CVS.  The imPRESS nails are marketed as a long-lasting alternative to polish that doesn't fade or chip.  I've recently gained an interest in nail polish and nail art, so I was excited to try these.

I was very happy when I opened my VoxBox and saw the pattern that I received, it's called Over The Moon.  The colors are perfect for my skin tone, a purple/maroon with gold swirls.  The nails were easy to apply, you just pull off the piece of plastic covering the sticky underside and press them on.  The bottle has a bunch of extra nails, too, to cover a wide range of nail sizes.  I have really small hands and nails and was happy to find that they had ones small enough to fit me.  I also like that they're shorter than other press-ons I've seen, because I really dislike the feeling of long nails.

I didn't keep these nails on much longer after I took this photo, because I didn't like the way they felt on my nails.  The combination of the sticky substance and the weight of the nails made me really uncomfortable.  Have you seen the It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia scene with the kitten mittens?  That's how I felt with these on my nails (if you haven't seen it, click here).  I like the idea of the product and I think they're really fun, and I'm sure they do last a long time, they just aren't for me.

Bottom Line: I can see imPRESS nails being a really fun product for people who are fans of press-on nails.  I really loved the pattern I received, and if they didn't feel so uncomfortable I would definitely wear them out and about.  They were easy to apply, had lots of sizes, and come in 36 different styles (ranging from animal prints to solid colors).  They are also easily accessible and affordable, they retail for $5.99 for solid colors and $7.99 for patterns.

*Disclaimer: I received the imPRESS Press-On Manicure free of charge in my Influenster Holiday VoxBox.  I received these products via Influenster in exchange for promotion of the companies and products through social media.  I was not monetarily compensated for this review and these honest opinions are entirely my own.


  1. these are a total waste of money, states on the box lasts upto 1week, i put these on and 3 of them popped off within 4 1/2 hours. wasted £8.99 on them total crap

    1. I wasn't impressed with them either. They were very uncomfortable to me. Sorry that you had a negative experience as well :(

  2. I actually got a box and loved them. They lasted me longer than a week.
