imPRESS Press-On Manicure Review

Style:  Stiletto
Retails for:  $5.99 - $7.99

Disclaimer: I was selected to receive this product, in addition to other product from the Mom VoxBox complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster.  

I received this from the Influenster Mom VoxBox a few days ago and was really excited to try this out.  The color is something that I probably wouldn't choose, because it was not deep red, but more like dark brown.  My hands are already dark and has a yellow tint.  So this didn't really look good on me at all.  It made my hands even darker.

So basically there are 24 nails in 12 sizes.  2 of each size so that it fits your nails.  I chose the ones that fits the best to my own and started to wipe my nail bed with the alcohol cloth provided.  This dries your nails and prepares them for application.  There is adhesive on the back of these plastic nails so that it clings on to your nails firmly.  So you just peel the plastic tab off before you stick it on your nails.  And after that you just press firmly.  The nails fitted really nice and was not long.  It was thick though.  

What I didn't like about the imPRESS was that it looked like it was clip on nails.  The adhesive was thick, so it didn't cover the part of my nail bed and my cuticles.  If I was touching my hair or something it would get caught in that part of my nail.  That's really not sanitized or good.  

The imPRESS is suppose to last up to 10 days.  I don't know how this could be because not only did it lift, it was not sturdy.  It was actually very bendable.  I didn't like it at all, so I peeled it all off after doing my right hand.  It's better just to paint your nails.  That will last longer than this.

I can understand though if someone wanted a quick manicure but didn't have waiting time then this would be okay to wear for a few hours.  


  1. When you measured them to your nails was the sticky tab facing away or towards you? I think they did not stick on your nails because they were upside down. The square edge of the nail is supposed to face away from you. Thanks for the great reviews and I hope I helped out a little on the topic.

    1. the sticky tab was facing away from me. i did that because the curve of my cuticles would show if i used the side that was towards me. thank you for telling me that though because i didn't know. i did try it both ways though before i put them on, but still, they were lifting. :)) thanks for stopping by! :))


Thank you!
