It takes time and patience to create the cool nail designs we’ve seen on the runways and all over the web, and I simply don’t have it to give. If you’re equally as time-challenged, or aren’t convinced that you could do as good a job as a professional to get great looking nails, then consider spending just $8 for a Limited Edition Broadway imPress Press-On Manicure or Pedicure in NEON ($7.99, Walgreens stores).
I felt a little pressure to give into that nail phenomena, so it was incumbent upon me to give press on nails a fair chance. With three bags filled with imPress product, I settled on the Happy In Love patterned manicure set (see picture below). Jazzy right?
From start to finish it took me only 10 minutes to apply the nails to one hand, and with no down time spent under the nail dryer, I can see why this nail product is a viable option. I did, however, have to spend time filing the nails so they’d a little more natural, but after that I was done.
ImPress lasts up to one week only if you minimize your contact with water – less than 30 is suggested. I will admit that not every nail shape fit over my own nail perfectly, but for the most part they did.
THE VERDICT: A thumbs up to imPress is in order because this product does fill a need and works just fine, however, I don’t see myself purchasing them in the future…after all, I’m a nail lacquer sort of girl.
