This will be my last review of my Influenster Holiday Vox Box products! To be honest, I was super hesitant to try out these press-on nails for a couple of reasons. Firstly, because they were a pattern I would never wear and couldn’t wear to work, and secondly because I had tried press-on nails in the past and they always felt uncomfortable and fell off easily. Since I had a 3 day weekend, I decided to just go ahead and give them a try and applied them on Friday night. The kit comes with various sizes of nails as well as a cleansing pad to wipe your natural nails off before applying the fake ones. The backing is adhesive like a sticker, so no need for nail glue! The first thing I noticed was that the nails seemed a little too short, which is interesting because I usually have the opposite problem with fake nails. Keep in mind that my natural nails are kind of narrow (not long per-say, because unfortunately I have a nail biting habit =/) but the shape of them is long, if that makes any sense. I think that is why the fake nails ended up being a little bit too short, and my natural nails peeked out the top. This wasn’t really noticeable too much, though, since the design of the press-on nails was so bold compared to my natural nails.
I was pleasantly surprised at how sturdy and comfortable they were. I seriously did not notice they were on at all! And best of all, they did not budge. They are supposed to last for “up to a week”, but I’ve been reading several reviews that said they fell off the next day. I was expecting them to do this, but they stuck for 3 whole days until I had to remove them for work (super easy to remove as well). If I had kept them on, I feel like they would have lasted a couple more days or even a whole week! And I was tough on them, too. I did dishes and cleaning and cooking and they stayed perfect…of course, no chips!
Overall, although these nails didn’t fit the shape of my natural nails 100%, I will definitely be getting more of these! They are long lasting, comfortable, and let me have a chip-free manicure for days. If you want to check out all the manicure colors that are available, check out the imPRESS website. I am definitely going to try out the French Manicure 🙂
Ive always been skeptical of press ons that had the sticker backing but I haven’t used any in years. These seem like they would be good to try, thanks for the review!
I think these are a really good idea, but like you said, I’m too scared of them not fitting my nails right and looking strange. But they look great on you!
