I’m in between rating at 2 stars and 3.
I love the price point, and design selection, however, I ran into some issues...
Recently I’ve had to cut back on my spending and going to the nail salon is not a necessity for me. But I love the way having a pair of styled nails gives me confidence and an overall polished look, so I started looking for a cost friendly option.
My first few press-on’s were the type you glued on with essentially a super glue. I wasn’t even paying attention when purchasing these impress nails, bought solely for design.
These have a peel off strip on the interior of nails, that have a gummy strip that sticks directly to your natural nail. A cleansing strip was provided to clean the natural nail before applying, along with a small nail buffing emory board. The application was quick and easy, and fit my nails relatively well. No complaints there. But I shortly noticed how my hair, when putting into a pony tail, stroking my hair behind my ears, etc would caus my hair to get caught under the nail. The gummy strip did not allow the edges of the press on’s to securely seal down, allowing hair on all nails to get wrapped underneath. Strands would get pulled out 9x out of ten.
The quality of the nail itself was ok. I’ve had other press-on’s last a full week. I had several of these impress nails fall off within an hour, to a couple days. I got so annoyed having to replace the nails and pushing them on, I finally just glued on to get through a whole 5 days. In my second photo I show my bare nail after removing the nail, they don’t look or feel or appear to be damaged. And on my middle finger you can see a ridge in the nail. I noticed how some of the nails started randomly getting busted and idk how. I wore these for no more than 5 days, and wasn’t doing anything unusual or laborious to cause such damage.
I appreciate the healthier nail option of having a gummy press on, and not using a harsh super glue but they need to work on securing the edge of the faux nail with the real. That’s my largest issue; and longevity of the stickiness being my second. Any other qualms I can overlook due to the price.

I stumbled upon these nails at Walgrens.  I bought them because I really liked the matte black finish and the fact they looked REALLY easy to apply.I was right. These were super easy to apply and no glue was needed.They have a patented adhesive and once you apply them they have a very strong hold. These gel nails lasted for about a week. I was dreading taking them off but that was simple as well. I soaked a cotton ball with some nail polish remover and squeezed some between the artificial nail and my natural nail. A little prying with a nail file and easy peasy; My natural nails were not ruined, weak, brittle, or a fright to look at. In fact I gave them a rest for a week and put on the remaining nails from the kit Yes! There are enough nails for at least 2 manicures. imPRESS Press-on Manicure

Honestly, I can’t say enough good things about these press ons! I used to be the girl who went out and got her nails done every few weeks because I wanted to feel “girly” and “put together” all of the time. However, that definitely put a big hole in my pocket.

I have used fake glue on nails before and they always fell off quickly, even with the “extra strength” adhesive. I tried these randomly expecting the same type of results, but was pleasantly surprised.

These nails come in so many different designs, patterns, and colors! They come in different lengths as well. You can definitely find one that will fit your mood. They are pre-glued so you don’t have to waste time (or money) using the adhesive and waiting for it to dry.

The wear time with these is about a week. I wear them for a week and then I take them off and redo them. They didn’t chip or fall off within that week that I tried them.

The best part of these nails though - is the fact that you don’t ruin your nails when you take them off! They don’t damage your actual nails at all and are easy to take off and not painful.

If you are looking for a cheap alternative to getting your nails done at a salon - this is your best bet!

I have always seen these in the store and wanted to try them because they're supposed to last a long time and they come in so many cute styles and colors, so when I received them complimentary as part of my Shimmer Voxbox I was really excited! I was a little disappointed when I realized they were shorter than my natural nails meaning I had to cut mine, but that's not a big deal since they grow back pretty quickly. I followed the simple instructions to apply them after making sure my nails were clean and prepped, and for the first few hours I was really paranoid they were going to pop off because they kept shifting around a bit, but they never did. I would love to give these five stars because I kid you not, they lasted FOREVER, but unfortunately I had to remove them early because the nails didn't sit flat against my natural nails, leaving a gap where my hair got caught and ripped out every time I got them near my hair... I would have still given them a good review despite that, except the removal process and what I saw when I removed them truly upset me. They claim to have "hassle-free removal" but even when following the removal instructions it was extremely difficult and somewhat painful to get them off, and they suggest using the stick that comes in the kit but it snapped in half while trying to do that. After I finally got them all off, I still had chunks of dirty adhesive all over my nails that wouldn't come off with my strongest nail polish remover. They also claim to be "safe on natural nails," but my nails felt really sensitive, they were super dry and brittle and they even felt thinned at the edges like the adhesive had deteriorated my nails. I will not be purchasing these or wearing them again, and I would not recommend them to anyone who is concerned about taking good care of their natural nails.

I hate painting my nails and I hate sitting in a salon for 40 minutes getting a gel manicure which ruins your healthy nails. I've been using Impress nails for a few months and I love them.  They look like you have a real gel manicure.  I get lots of compliments and no one guesses they are press on.  They go on easy and for me, 7 out of 10 Impress nails last at least 7 days or until I take them off.  The peel off glue really adheres well.  When they do come off, you have plenty of extra Impress nails in the package and I just press a replacement back on.  It's so easy you can do it in the car.  No messy glue!  When you want them off, just soak your fingertips in warm soapy water and they come off easy and your real fingernails are still healthy looking.  I recommend this product for an easy, affordable, healthier alternative to having a gel manicure.  They look great, you save money and you don't ruin your real nails.

In love with this product! I didn't have much expectations but for under 6 bucks might as well try it. I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to apply them and I love the matte options! I see how people say 3-4 days for them but mine lasted way longer! I applied them on xmas morning make sure u go all the way to the cuticle before u peel and apply so they set nicely on your nail and make sure you press firmly. The ring ringer lasted 25 days! the matte nails start to wear down but the shiny nails look brand new! I was on vacation so i didnt do much with my hands but i could still wash my hair, they lasted a good few weeks! they start to pull up on the cuticle and your hair gets snagged but the glue is heavy duty i got so many compliments everyone thought i had them done! I would def buy them again.

I have used the imPress nails three times in a row now. I absolutely love them! I have never had acrylics before, always preferring my natural nails. My nails grow out ok, but I can never get them all the same length and shape before one or two break off. I also hate painting my nails because it never last more than a day and I cannot stand the sight of chipping of polish. I have had gel done on my nails before and they ruined my real nail bed. I have seen the imPress nails from youtube but never felt compelled enough to try. Then one girls night out we were all ohhing and ahhing over one of our friends "perfect" nails. She also had a really cute accent nail. We all wanted to know where she went and how she had time to get her nails done with the kiddos. She said they were fake and we were all floored. You literally would never know! If applied properly they look absolutely 100% like you just get a gel polish done on your real nails. I decided to try. Even with 0 experience with applying nails I was able to do it super quick and easy. My three tips would be: 1. Buy some brush on glue and put just the tinniest bit on your real nail before you apply. This will make the application last up to two weeks! 2. The nails have numbers on the back. Once you size yourself the first time write it down. Then it's super quick and easy to pick your size nails out next time. 3. When you want to take them off the easiest way I found was to use your nail to loosen the nails around the cuticle. Then soak for a couple seconds in acetone. This helps to saturate the inside and outside of the nail. They will become super soft and peel off gently. You can use a little nail polish remove to get the little bit of glue off your nails and you should not have damage to your real nail below. I love all the colors and designs to choose from. For the first time in my life I have beautiful nails all the time.

STOP SPENDING A FORTUNE ON ACRYLIC NAILS. It may seem very 2005, but press on nails are the way to go! I use ImPress nails for every event and even for pageants! NO glue, NO hassle, NO dry time. I rely on these nails and trust them-I rarely ever pop a nail, and if I do, it is after a few days. In my experience, they have lasted up to a week. They are available at your local drugstore, including Walgreens, CVS, etc for around $6-8. They stick-on with such ease and fit a variation of nail sizes. There are so many different colors, styles, and textures (metallic and matte) and themes with optional accent nails! From nautical themed, to a simple French tip, you won’t be disappointed with these! I ALWAYS get compliments and questions about which salon I visit…and finally I’m revealing my little secret to cheap, perfect nails 24/7! So a $40 acrylic or gel manicure vs $7 stick-ons that look even better…your choice!

This past week I've been wearing my 'Night Fever' imPRESS nails. This was my first time using press on nails and I must say it definitely was an experience. Applying them was easy. I first picked out which ones I was going to use for each nail and then one by one put them on. Most of them lasted the entire week except for two of them. One of them I had to remove two days later because it was hurting my nail pretty bad, I think the nail probably was a bit too far down or something, I don't know.. but it was hurting a lot so I removed it. The other nail that came off ended up becoming incredibly loose the day after putting them on and even by adding more pressure to it it wouldn't stick so I just removed it. The rest of the nails stayed on for the duration of the week. I did find it a bit difficult to do some simple tasks with these nails on which was annoying but I got used to it. I personally will probably not use anymore press on nails for the time being but I did enjoy trying them out. And I must also say that the design is beautiful! I love the vibrant colors and the palm tree design!

I received this nail set free from Influenster for testing purposes.

I had finally decided to stop abusing my nails with acrylic and gel and my naked nails were painful to look at- thin and cracked from months of salon " beautification." I found a much better alternative when I was sent a package of imPRESS nails to review a couple of weeks ago as part of the Shimmer Vox Box. I admit I put off trying them because I didn't think I would like them. I expected them to look cheesy on and to fall off right away if I didn't baby them. I hadn't used press on nails since junior high and had no idea how far the technology has come. I've had these on since Saturday and doing everything I normally do, and they feel comfortable and look pretty awesome. Wanted to share. I'm done with acrylics. I've already picked up my next set from Walgreen's. There's no shame in a non-damaging AND inexpensive alternative to salon manis. These are great!
