Impress Press on Nails review!

Hello everyone! I haven't posted in a while but life has been crazy! I just started a new job, I had to travel for another job, and then hurricane Sandy hit. I hope all of you are doing well and are safe. Today I finally have my review of Impress Press on Nails. I received a couple of packs for free from the ImPress booth at New York Comic Con earlier in October. They come in these cute little plastic nail polish bottles!

I was really interested in trying these out even though I had bad experiences with Lee press on nails back in the 80's and 90's. Anyway, you get 24 nails in 12 different sizes. I have narrow nail beds but I was able to find ones that fit them. Each individual nail comes with a plastic tab to pull off and uncover the nail adhesive.

The nails applied very easily, and the glue is supposedly heat activated so the longer you press down onto the nail with your finger, the better it sticks. I strongly suggest you use a base coat on your natural nail before applying the press ons. I did not and the glue took a small toll on my natural nail. Not too bad but enough. The package says the nails last up to 7 days. They actually did! I had them on for 6 days and on the 7th, the nails started to slightly lift, and the paint started to chip. But overall these are pretty cool! Everyone thought I had my nails done at the salon. These are sold at most drugstores for around $10 a pack. Also, make sure you have very short nails, really short, otherwise your natural nail will stick out, see the last pic below.

These were pretty cool. They weren't too difficult to take off, I pulled a couple off and the others, I just soaked my nail in acetone for a couple of minutes and they came right off. There was some slight stripping of my natural nail but nothing too horrible. Make sure you put on a base coat before applying these nails! Anyway, Thanks for reading!! And thanks for following my blog!!
