imPRESS Press-on Manicure Working Girl

Here’s one of the items I got in my Influenster Holiday VoxBox 2011. I was definitely intrigued by this product being that most of my blog entries revolve around nail polish and beauty. So how did the imPRESS Press-on Manicure in Working Girl fare?

The Influenster insert boasts about this product: “Introducing imPress, the revolutionary way to apply nail polish! Featuring advances technology, you will get a salon-perfect manicure in seconds – simply peel off, press on, and you’re done (no drying time!). imPress comes in 36 colors and patterns, including trendy brights, classic darks and animal prints.”

Verdict? It comes in such cute packaging! The box opens to reveal a bottle-shaped plastic snap container that houses 24 nail covers in 12 different sizes. It is very easy to use with complete instructions on the back of the box. It applies literally in minutes. You first figure out the correct nail pieces to use, swipe the enclosed prep pad onto your natural nails and firmly apply the pieces after removing the peel off tab. The press on nails goes on with the tab end facing the cuticle. I haven’t removed them yet, but removal is said to be pretty easy by gently peeling off from sides or apply polish remover around edges and waiting a minute or so to peel off. We’ll see if it removes that well. Your natural nail length has to be shorter than these press ons, so check first to see or else you’ll end up looking like my middle finger in the picture above where my nail is sticking out underneath it. I love, LOVE, L-O-V-E this print called Working Girl. It looks like glittery crackle or shatter over black creme polish. Looking at their offerings, the solids didn’t appeal to me much but the prints are right up my alley! There’s something for everybody with the variety they offer.

As long as you follow the instructions carefully, it works great and should last for up to a week or so. imPress Manicure retails for $5.99 for colors and $7.99 for patterns, and is available at CVS, Rite Aid, Duane Reade, KMart, Walgreens, Walmart and more.

    • They do look natural to most people! Nail peeps can spot them based on how it looks, but everyone else thought they were my own nails and I did that!
