imPRESS Press-On Manicure


I wanted to show some great nails: imPress Press-On Manicure by Broadway

What are they? Basically there false nails, but the difference is these babies require NO glue! NO drying time! Fast and Easy! Hoorah!

They come in a massive range of block colours and designs, there is something everyone will love

To show you guys, I bought the beautiful shade Ecstatic Cling which is a neon pink

The packaging is great, its like a little nail polish bottle and it's perfect for travelling about with
The packet has 24 covers with 12 nail sizes

First thing to do before you apply is to lay all the sizes out to find your correct fit

The nails have a little clear tab which you align with your cuticle to see what nail best fits, check both sides and when your happy, lay all ten out in finger order, always apply your thumbs last

To apply its so simple, make sure you have no polish left on your nails,and in the box you'll find a little prep pad, which you wipe over your nails to ensure there is no residue or moisture on your nails so the manicure will last longer

Starting with your little finger, peel off the clear film and press onto the nail firmly down the centre, then smooth it

And that's it!

Don't get your hands wet for 30 minutes after application as this could effect it bonding with your natural nail

The nails are designed to last for about one week, which mine did indeed do

They didn't even feel like they were loose or were going to ping off, the length is great, not too long, I was still able to type on my laptop and do buttons! Haha 

To remove, all you do is apply some nail varnish remover to the nail for 30 seconds, and gently peel off, I found it pretty easy and my nails don't appear to be damaged

Final thoughts on imPRESS manicure:

  • Great packaging
  • Quick and easy with no glue
  • Easy to travel with, easy to apply, you could do them on a bus train, anywhere!
  • They're so shiny and glossy, like a professional manicure, I had so many compliments
  • 36 different shades so plenty of choice
  • They kept their promise they would last 7 days

  • The size range of nails wasn't great, if you have wide nails you might struggle to get a good fit
  • My hair kept catching alot on the nails
The nails sell for £7.99 from Boots, which is I think is quite reasonable for a pack of 24, I think Superdrug now sell them for £5.99!

Hope you guys enjoyed that, let me know if you buy them!
