Happy Monday lovelies!
I thought this week I’d kick off the blogging with a review from a fantastic product which I had the pleasure of reviewing over the weekend. On Friday last week I was invited to an event at Superdrug Surrey Quays to celebrate the launch of the imPRESS press-on manicure nails. Not only was this an exciting event with product testing, other bloggers, photos and cake (no event is complete without cake!) I was also super excited to meet the amazingly talented Rachel Leary, YouTube makeup extraordinaire who was there too!
The event was fab and I was lucky enough to take away a couple of samples of the imPRESS nails to try at home and since I was going to a party on Friday evening I thought it was a great opportunity to try out my favourite style which was the beige and silver.
About the product
The imPRESS press-on mani is a ‘press and go’ manicure which enables you to have fabulous looking nails in half the time (and a fraction of the price!) of getting them done professionally. The nails are easy to use with no glue; simply match up a false nail to the size of your own, peel off the plastic on the back of the nail and press down onto your natural nail. The imPRESS nails have a new super-hold technology which means that the adhesive is really strong allowing maximum wear time and less chance of nail related incidents at events! They are also super easy to remove at the end of the night with no painful removal and no damage to the natural nails underneath.
What I thought
My past experience of ‘stick-on’ nails has been limited. I have used a few brands which use nail glue before but have always been disappointed by having nails ping off in the middle of parties! As a previous acrylic addict, my natural nails are pretty ruined so while I am waiting for them to become stronger something which can give me low maintence and easy pretty nails for an evening would be perfect for me – needless to say I was excited to try the imPRESS manicure!
I am delighted to report that the imPRESS press-on manicure nails live up to all of their claims and my expectations! They were super easy to apply, even including a nail prep pad and cuticle stick within the pack to help prepare nails to ensure optimium application! Something else which I love about this product, that sets it apart from others on the market, is that it contains 30 nails in a pack including lots of different sizes so it was easy to find one to fit each finger. The application itself really was as easy as ‘press and go’ and they felt very sturdy all evening.
So did they last? Yes! They lasted all evening and I only lost one before I went to bed. I removed them the next morning which was easy and painless, considering how strongly stuck down they felt it was actually surpisingly easy to pull them off. I really like the fact that the imPRESS nails are shorter than others on the market which I think helps add to the durability and still look fab with less risk of losing one! I found that pressing them down regularly throughout the evening helped keep them strong.
I absolutely loved this design in particular and imPRESS make sooo many cute designs – plus the fact that every pack includes accent nails if you want to shake it up and add something different to your mani! I received loads of compliments on my nails and no one could believe they were out of a packet! For a quick and easy manicure that looks natural and lasts I would thoroughly recommend the imPRESS press-on manicure.
