Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-on Manicure: The Experience

I never thought I would try press-on nails. To me, press-on nails always looked so fake, and dare I say, tacky. Plus, I had heard how the glue could damage your nails. So, no thanks.

When I had the opportunity to try imPress Press-On Nails by Broadway Nails, I was bit hesitant. 
I thought the packaging was cute and creative; it's shaped like a nail polish bottle. I liked how the nails came in a variety of sizes, so these nails should 'fit' everyone. I'm not sure how many nails were in the package, but I was able to get two sets of nails, with leftovers. 
There's a tab that you peel off the back of the nail, which reveals the glue, and then press them one; it was that easy, no messy or complicated application.

They say the nails last up to a week and I would say this is fairly accurate; I wore mine for 6 days before they came loose and I took them off. It was really easy to take them off too. Just loosen the edges, which wasn't difficult, and peel them off. Again no mess and not complicated. There was no damage to my nails either; you couldn't even tell that I had worn press-on nails for a week.

I got so many compliments on these nails! They looked really natural and everyone was surprised to hear that they were press-on nails! I was able to do everything I would normally do, including Christmas baking, without any real issues. 

One of the nails fell off while I was sleeping, but I think I just didn't press it on hard enough; I just took one of the leftover nails and put it on. Also, it's important to make sure that the nails are the right length for you. As you can see from the above picture, the nail on my pinky is pretty long. It kept getting hit/caught and eventually fell off after 3 or 4 days.

 As much as I love this product, I probably wouldn't use it to replace a weekly manicure, (just because I prefer my natural nails and length; easier to type/text), I can see myself using this product again and frequently. I would use them for a night out or anytime I want to have nice nails (ex important meeting with a client) but don't have time for a manicure. This is a product that I am going to make the point of keeping on hand (no pun intended) because you never know when you'll need pretty nails.

I highly recommend this product and will be using it in the future.

I received this product complimentary for testing and review purposes from Influenster.
