I first introduced you to my favorite press on nails in this post, Fake Nails on Fleek , which I shared in May 2015. Since then they have made an appearance in over 200 of my outfit posts, nearly every fashion Friday over the past few years. That means I have gone through dozens of packs and have perfected the tips and tricks of these press on nails. At this point I actually spent more time picking out the sizes for each nail than I did putting them on.
It is ironic that this exact brand and style is the first kind of press on nail I have tried as an adult and in a pinch I have tried a few others brands since and can attest in both the US and the UK the imPRESS manicure sets are apparently one of the best you can buy for under $10 / £8. And now for a new overview off the process:
- You open the container
- Use the alcohol pad to clean your nails
- Pick out the sizes
- Lay them out matching you hands
- Peel the stickers off all of the nails
- Press them on to your own.
- After 7 days or if they start to get loose, peel them off
- Start again!
The specific nails I will be putting on today are the KISS imPRESS Press-on Manicure in a white shade called Next Wave. Take a look at my weekly ritual, going step by step:
Over the years I have introduced these to many friends, coworker, sand family members who love them as much as I do though they do take a little bit of getting used to if you are not used to having long nails – I used to struggled with opening the clasp to my necklace, peeling the foil off hummus, opening a Diet Coke can, and twisting the paper towel wheel. Now after practice the only thing I do not do is open a can of soda as the nail can pop off! And I will leave you with a quote from the original post, ” I think they look like gel for a fraction of the price!
Would you try these press on nails?
