imPress Press-On Manicure from Broadway Nails – Review and photos

I’ve never tried press-on nails before so when I received the Broadway imPress Press-On Manicure in my Infleunster Holiday Voxbox, I was pretty excited about it! I apologize it took me so long to write a review but here it is….

The imPress Press-On Manicure kit comes in a plastic container shaped just like a nail polish bottle and contains 24 nails in 12 different sizes. I really like the packaging as it’s not only cute but also quite functional and keeps the press-on nails secured nicely. You can even throw it in your purse and don’t have to worry about spilling.

I received my imPress nails in the style Space Cadet that has a pattern of black pebbles on white with golden glitters in between. I really like it!

Before applying the press-on nails, make sure to remove any nail polish and then cleanse your nails using the enclosed prep pad. Next, find the correct size for each of your nails and line them up in finger order. And then apply by peeling off the plastic film and pressing down firmly on your natural nails, leaving thumb nails for last.

What I like :

  • The application is super easy and fast without any drying time. The press-on nails fit instantly without any issues.
  • Each press-on nail comes with its own adhesive so there is no need for a glue (and thus no mess!)
  • Pretty designs! I can’t imagine recreating something like this on my own so these press-on styles are perfect for nail-art novices like me to easily glam up their nails. They have a great selection of designs (36) from neutral everyday colors to glam patterns so you can easily find something for your taste.
  • Do not feel bulky or uncomfortable over my natural nails
  • Removal is very easy without any damage to the real nails. Just apply a bit of nail polish remover around the edges, wait a minute and then peel off from the sides.
  • Cheap and easily available at drugstores/mass market retailers.

What I didn’t like :

  • The press-on nails for the ring and middle fingers were not a perfect size/match for me and looked too big/wide and obviously fake. I have small fingers so the length of the nails was also a bit too long for me.
  • A couple of  press-on nails fell-off on day 2 so I had to take off the rest of them, which was really disappointing since they are supposed to last for a week.  I think these may last longer if you do not use your hands as actively throughout the day.

Overall, count me ImPressed with this manicure kit! I would not recommend these for everyday use (especially if you are a busy mom like me!) but the kit is absolutely worth trying for a fun night out or a special occasion to dress up your nails without an expensive salon visit!

Broadway imPress Press-On Manicure retails for $5.99 for colors and $7.99 for patterns, and is available at CVS, Rite Aid,  KMart, Walgreens, Walmart and more. Do check out their website impressmanicure.com to get a $1 off  coupon and see all the different styles.They also have an Impress try-on app on the website that you can use to try on all the nail designs virtually and see if it goes well with your skintone.

I'm currently on day 15 of about my 4th set of these nails. They typically last about 3 weeks for me.  I love them to death & get nothing but complements on them.  I type all day at work so I only buy the short styles.  I'm careful not to pry or do anything I wouldn't do with my crappy natural nails, lol.  I didn't like the "gel" finish set. The finish acted like wet nail polish & I ended up taking the nails off early.  I don't have any problems getting the nails to match my natural nail size so they look pretty authentic on me. I recommend these to anyone who asked me about them.

I've been meaning to try these nails for a while but worried they would fall off straight away. I'm always working with my hands so I doubt they would even last two days on me. Great review, I think I might hold off until I have some downtime before trying them out now.

I bought me 2nd pack already!!!! ive read reviews on different websites & they mostly seemed to be negative but to me & a couple of my friends in school they are perfect!!! My 1st pack lasted a week & it could have gone on longer but the tip of the nail the desgin was starting to fade...what i did differently now was apply a clear coat of nail polish to my new nails & so far its been 5day & the color hasnt been fading.They stick on perfectly & are better than acrylic! For me & my friend we are addicted to these nails & they work perfectly for us. people always think there my real nails!! I give them 10thumbs up!!! Im a hugr fan & i will contiune buying as many new desgns as there is!!!

I have tried these 3 different times. The shorter they are the more natural they look, but when you file them some of the glue does stick out. In all three times I used them, not once have they lasted a week. They will however work if your in a pinch and need something quick for a night on the town. Great patterns to chose from to match almost any outfit. With each pack having 24 nails In each I was able to use each pack twice which is nice. =/

Love these! I bought the pink and black lace design. The nails are much shorter in this design. They don't feel odd or anything on your fingers. I'm on day 6 and haven't lost a one yet. I type all day at work, take care of my 3 yr old son afterwards and all the household chores. They have definitely taken a beating and held up beautifully. Will be buying more in the future. <3

I love them. Its been three days for me and im very active i type all day at work wash my hands about 15 times a day and my face 3 times and of course shower...i guess it depends on how you applied them. Ive received so many compliments even more than when i get a $35 acrylic set and i only paid $6...im sure they arent going to last me months like my acrylic ones did but better for me!...i found my size easy they dont look fake and they dont harm my nails which is a real PLUS. i love them and will tell everyone about them. Tips on applying you can buff nails helps get out all the excess oil that could cause the stickness to not work as well, use nail polish remover as well as the alcohol swab, and i saw this tip but havent tried it apply a base coat under and let dry then apply Impress nails. Heard someone say they did that and they lasted a little over a week. :-)

Ive seen these at my local Wag! I'm definitly going to have to try these out. I'm not a fan of the glue, so these look like a good bet:)
