Busy young mom? International Jet-setter? It can be hard to find the time to look fabulous every day. Luckily, the folks at imPRESS have come up with a fantastic solution for us. The imPRESS Press-on Manicure gives you a salon-pefect ultra gel shine manicure in just a few minutes! There's no dry time and no mess. You just peel off the backing and press on your new, perfectly manicured nails. With over 40 colors and designs to choose from, they'll suit any taste or occassion.
Each package comes with everything you need: 24 individual nails of varying sizes, a prep pad & file, adhesive & charms (on applicable styles), and an instruction booklet.
These are the only waterproof press-on nails on the market and they last up to one week thanks to imPRESS's "Ultra-Hold Adhesive Technology". They are safe on natural nails and removal is very easy - just peel them off rather than messing around with any acetone or soak-off removal.
As you can tell from the above, it took me a minute to figure out how to add the finishing touches...i.e. the dazzling little charm. So, here's another video tutorial to show you how to do that bit:
...and here's the final result! What do you think?
Personally, I don't love the smell of nail polish remover (who does?) or the hassle of remembering to put your nail clippers in your checked luggage. I also can't be bothered to go out and purchase those things on a trip, even if my nails break or my polish chips. So, this seems like the perfect thing to bring along with me on my travels...especially ideal for destination weddings! The nails actually look pretty natural and I can attest that they definitely stay in place. If for any reason something causes one to fall off, you do get a few spares in the box.
The best part? These kits are available nationwide at Walgreens, CVS, Walmart, Rite Aid, and Kmart and retail at just $6.99 - that's even less than a manicure at the salon!
