My Holiday Vox Box Review: imPRESS Press-on Manicure
I was excited to try the imPRESS nails. I was leaving for a cruise and didn't want to worry about bringing my nail polish and manicure stuff on board with me. Because the imPRESS nails that came in my Holiday Vox Box (Estatic cling) wasn't an appropriate color to wear while on vacation with my family and the In Laws, I decided to use the coupon to buy another set, Holla! The directions are simple. Although they didn't lay flat on top of the nail bed it made it difficult not to think they'd get dirty inside when the real nail starts to grow. I was impressed at how durable they felt on and definitely far from the typical "press on nails". I like not having to use the glue and to ruin the top layer of my natural nails. On the flip side, they didn't all fit me as much as I would have liked. I have small, but not petite size nails and most of the imPress nails were a bit too wide for my nails.
After 3 days the tip of the nails started to peel. I hadn't done anything extreme other than dishes and showers. They started to peel, kind of like real nail polish without a top coat. I was disappointed.
I had mixed feelings about it after reading all the reviews on Influenster versus my recent experience. When I decided to try it for myself it left me excited and not so "impressed" They were great for a quick, last minute pop of nail color and design, but not for a period of time. I wouldn't say I didn't like it. It's a great idea and works well for a day or two at the most. Check out their website for more information and more designs
