I recently received this in my Influenster Holiday VoxBox 2011, which I actually tried out the same night I opened them so it didn't take long for me to review this product.

This is my first time wearing press on nails since I was a little girl, so I wasn't really excited to try these out. Back in the day (and they might still do this), you had to put stickies on your false nails, kind of like double sided tape, before your put them on your natural nails. Because it was tape, they barely lasted a couple hours before getting knocked off by your everyday tasks.

imPRESS Press-On Manicure nails are a little different than the ones I used to use when I was little. First of all, the edge that goes against your cuticle is soft and flexible so it blends into your cuticle much easier. The tips are squared compared to the rounded tips that press-on's used to come in, and you can file the edges if you want them to be more rounded.

I experienced a lot of difficulties when using these imPRESS Press-On Manicure nails. The nails are short, even though I have my nails filed down as far as possible, my nail beds were still too long for the nails. Most of the press-on nails didn't cover my entire nail, so you could see major gaps between my cuticle and the edge of the nails. The press-on nails are quite flat, my natural nails are significantly more curved than the press-on nails, so the press-on nails did not lie flat on my natural nails and left visible gaps between them. Most of the sizes were too narrow for my nails, I barely found any that fit my pinky nails and ring nails.

imPRESS Press-On Manicure nails say they last up to a week (when applied properly). I had planned on seeing how long I could wear these, but sadly they only lasted an hour on my nails.

First, because the press-on nails didn't actually fit my nails, the gaps would catch on my hair and clothes. Second, the gaps collected food from our dinner - as a mommy of a 15mon old, I rip up her food sometimes so it's easier for her to feed herself. I had so much food stuck under the press-on nails, that even after washing my hands a few times, I had no choice but to remove them to get the food out. Lastly, the nails were not very strong and I had so much difficulty changing my daughter's diaper, preparing her food, preparing our food, cleaning up - pretty much, anything that involved using my nails was hard to do because the press-on nails would just bend in and out and pull on my natural nails.

Overall, I wouldn't recommend these nails to any women, but I could see how these would be fun for younger girls. The styles and colors available are really fun too, there's a wide selection of nudes, brights, solids and patterns.
