CHECK MY REVIEW of ‘Holla’ imPRESS Press-on Manicure HERE
When I was asked to review a new press-on nail polish called imPRESS Press-on Manicure, I immediately accepted. It seemed like something that would be cool to review. Plus, something that would mean I’d have cute nails without the hassle of waiting for polish to dry.
My package came in the mail with a bunch of other products from Kiss Cosmetics, such as eyelashes, a brow pencil etc. I was wowed by the colors and styles; I received ‘Ecstatic Cling’, ‘Working Girl’ black with silver glitter crackle), and ‘Holla!’ (nude with a black lace/flower design).
Since I received the items a few months ago when the weather was a little warmer, I used ‘Ecstatic Cling’ first. It’s a nice, bold hot pink or fuschia color. It reminded me of the CND Shellac in Hot Pop Pink that I had gotten not too earlier (see post). Needless to say, I was excited to try it out.
I was disappointed when I noticed they were reminiscent of old-fashioned press-on nails, just a little bit more funkier in style and color, and a lot more flexible. I still gave them a try.
I sat down, and carefully set aside each nail to match my nails; you get 24 nails in 12 sizes. For the record, none of the nails were a perfect match, they were either too big, or they were small and left a space at the sides of my nails. I probably could have filed them down, but, that sort of defeats the purpose of the product. I mean it does claim to give you “…salon perfect manicure in seconds!” Certainly, if I had to sit there to shape each nail in order to get a perfect match, it isn’t living up to its claims.
After they were applied, I looked at my hands and said “These do not look good”. Maybe it was the color, but, they didn’t look natural [to me] at all. Plus, they popped off after a day or two.

-They do not look natural.
-They do not sit flush & look bulky
Do I recommend?
I can’t say I will not recommend them because maybe it’s just me who had a problem with them? I mean, I didn’t receive compliments on them. I almost always receive compliments on my nails. Maybe in trying a different set in a different style will change my opinion? We shall see because I REALLY wanted to love these. They are affordable, so if you’d like to try them at least once for yourself go ahead, and make sure to let me know how you like (or don’t like) them.
